The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Cubit has been recorded under many different variations, including Cubitt, Cowbitt, Cobbett, Cubyt, Cubbert, Cubit and many more.

First found in Lincolnshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Cubit or a variant listed above:

Cubit Settlers in the United States in the 18th Century


  • Matthew Cubit, who landed in Virginia in 1701

Cubit Settlers in the United States in the 19th Century


  • William Cubit settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1866
