Carabine Family History

Recorded in several forms including Carabine, Carbin, Carbine, Carben, Carbon (English), Carabin, Carabina (France), Carabini (Italian and Spanish), and others, this is a surname of appatently French origins. It is claimed to describe a horse soldier, one who carried a small musket called a carbine. However whilst this is just possible, in general terms this would seem to be unlikely, as the weapon itself was not invented until the 16th century, arguably two centuries at least after the usual introduction of surnames.
