Lake Family HistoryThis very interesting surname is of early English medieval origins. It is to be found chiefly in the West Country, and is either topographical or locational. If the former it was a surname for someone who lived by a stream or water course or a bog. The derivation is either from the Old English pre 7th century word 'lacu' meaning a water course or 'laecc', meaning a bog. Curiously the word lake meaning a body of open water, is not apparently recorded in England before the 13th century, and it is uncertain as to whether it was the source of surnames at all.
