About the Shubrick surname

The family seems to have originated in Devon, England where there are 16C and 17C names including: Angleess Shabbrooke, Christopher Sheobrooke, Grace Shebbrooke, James Shabrook, John Shibroke, and Robert Shaubrocke.

The name Shobrooke and its variations, such as; Shoobroke, Shoobrooke, and Shobrocke, is also relatively common in Devon with a Richard Shobrooke being found as early as 1575.

The most likely origin is that the various names all originated from the village of Shobrooke, in Devon which is only 5 miles north-west of the port of Exeter.

In 1872 it was described thus: "SHOBROOKE, a parish, with a village, in Crediton district, Devon; 2 miles NE of Crediton r. station. It has a post-office under Crediton, North Devon. Acres, 3835. Real property, £6,004. Pop. in 1851, 812; in 1861, 630. Houses, 133. The manor, with Fulford Park, belongs to J. H. Hippesley, Esq. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Exeter. Value, not reported.* Patron, the bishop of E. The church is ancient. There are a slightly endowed school, and charities £17. T. Westcote, the antiquary, was a native; and the Bodleys, of whom was Sir T. Bodley the founder of the Bodleian library at Oxford, were at one time residents."
