HULBERT Family History

This interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and derives from the Middle English given name Holbert, itself a development of the Olde English pre 7th Century "Holdbeorht", composed of the Germanic elements "hold", meaning friendly, gracious, with "berht", bright, famous. The popularity of the name is borne out by the number of surnames it has generated; the personal name appears as "Holbertus" (1168) in the Archaeological Records of Kent. The surname dates back to the early 13th Century (see below), and early recordings include: John Holdebert (1219), in the Assize Court Rolls of Yorkshire, and John Hulberd (1524), in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex.
