|Origin of Tenbroeck, Meaning of Tenbroeck
Origin: The original surname was 'TEN BROECK', attributed to the first in this family to arrive in this country in 1626. His name was Wessel ten Broeck. After several generations, the name began to change; mostly in spelling, the pronounciation and sound is pretty much the same. 'Ten BROECK' means 'from the marsh/bog'. 'ten' in its truest form is 'tot den' which is a descriiptive prefix to a Dutch name. It is most commonly used in its abbreviated form, 'ten.' 'Nederland' (i.e. Holland / Netherlands) is a lowland area that was very marshy and full of bogs. The surname is a description of 'Wessel' who came from the marshy lowlands.
