Brooks Genealogy & History

Brooks is an ancient name found in England, Scotland, Ireland and Germany; in Germany it can also be the aristocratic variation "von Brooks". It is primarily a locational name as there are many Brook/Broke villages, with a derivation from "broc", meaning brook in England but referring to rocks in Germany. A possible second derivation is from the Jewish given name Boruch, meaning blessed. In Brooks family history, the motto "perseverando" means "by persevering". The blue beaver on the family crest stands for truth, loyalty and persevering. Brooks genealogy in America is one of the oldest, with the first emigrant arriving in Virginia in 1622.
