Glazebrook Coat of Arms / Glazebrook Family Crest

The surname of GLAZEBROOK has the associated arms recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. The name was locational 'of Glazebrook' in County Lancashire. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land, and indicated where he actually lived. Early records of the name mention Geoffrey de Glasebroc, 1246, County Lancashire. William de Glasbrok was documented in Yorkshire, in the year 1350. Thomas Glazbrook of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Since the dawn of civilisation the need to communicate has been a prime drive of all higher mankind. The more organised the social structure became, the more urgent the need to name places, objects and situations essential to the survival and existence of the social unit. From this common stem arose the requirements to identify families, tribes and individual members evolving into a pattern in evidence today. In the formation of this history, common usage of customs, trades, locations, patronymic and generic terms were often adopted as surnames. The demands of bureaucracy formally introduced by feudal lords in the 11th century, to define the boundaries and families within their fiefdoms, crystallized the need for personal identification and accountability, and surnames became in general use from this time onwards. A notable member of the name was Sir Richard Tetley Glazebrook (1854-1935) the English physicist, born in Liverpool. He was the Director of the National Physical Laboratory from 1900. He is best known for his work on electrical standards. Surnames as we recognise them today are believed to have been introduced by the Normans after the Invasion of 1066. The first mention of such names appears in the Domesday Book and they were progressively adopted between the 11th and 15th centuries. It was the nobles and upper classes who first assumed a second name, setting them apart from the common people who continued to use only the single name given to them at birth. It was not until the reign of Edward II (1307-1327) that is became common practice to use a secondary name, originally a name reflecting the place of birth, a nickname, an occupational name or a baptismal name which had been passed on from a parent to the child, as an additional means of identification.
