    Origin Displayed: English - Spelling variations of this family name include: Cobb, Cobbe and others. First found in Suffolk where they were seated from very ancient times, and the name was recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086, by scribes of King William, Duke of Normandy, which showed that they held land at that time. Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Henry Cobb, who settled in Plymouth in 1629. It was said that his descendants were "like the sands of the beach," and many North American Cobbs are descended from this man. He was one of the founders of the church in Scituate in 1633. He was a representative of the colony's court for six years. John Cobb was another settler in 1658. (From www.HouseOfNames.com Archives copyright © 2000 - 2009). Motto Translated: Virtue is Valuable. This interesting name, variations of which are Cobbe, Cobb, Cobson, and Copson, is of early medieval English origin, and is an example of the many early surnames that were gradually created during the Middle Ages from the habitual use of a nickname. In this instance, the nickname, or by name, recorded in Cornwall in 1201 as "Cobba", derives from a term meaning "lump", found in both Old English and Old Norse, and used to denote a large, well built, impressive man. The equivalent by name in Old Norse is recorded as "Kobbi", and the examples of the surname Cobb or Cobbe found in the eastern counties of England are probably derived from this source. In some cases, the surname may represent a short form of the male personal name "Jacob", from the hebrew "Yaakov", which is traditionally held to mean "he supplanted", from the biblical story of Esau and Jacob. One Joseph Cobb was an early emigrant to the American colonies; he is recorded as a resident of Elizabeth City in Virginia in 1635, having arrived on the "Treasoror" in 1613. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Leuric Cobbe, which was dated 1086, in the Domesday Book of Essex, during the reign of King William 1st, known as "William the Conqueror", 1066 - 1087. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling. © Copyright: Name Origin Research www.surnamedb.com 1980 - 2014.
