HORNBUCKLE Family History

Recorded in several spellings including Arbuckle, Arbuckel, Hornbuckle, and possibly Harbottle, this is a Scottish surname of locational origins. It derives from the village of Arbuckle in the county of Lanarkshire, and like most locational surnames was probably give to the first nameholder (see below) after he left the original homestead, and moved elsewhere. "Elsewhere" could be the next village, or it could be a different country, however it was in medieval times, and to some extent it remains so today, that the easiest means of identifying "a stranger" is to called him or her, by the name of the place from whence they came.
