'Fox-brook,' if we take the first element to be ME tod , 'fox,' though there are difficulties in doing so as that word is distinctively a North Country word, at any rate in early usage. If Tote - is the correct form, with later voicing of t to d before b , then the first element would seem to be the pers. name Tota .
