Where did the French Hebert family come from? What is the French Hebert family crest and coat of arms? When did the Hebert family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Hebert family history?

The surname Hebert comes ultimately from a Germanic personal (first) name, composed of the elements "hari," meaning "army" and "behrt," meaning "illustrious." Saint Haribert was the archbishop of Cologne circa. 1000, and versions of Hebert became a popular given name amongst the French nobility.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Hebert, Harbert, Herbert, Herbot, Harbelot and others.

First found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where Hebert families were the Lords (seigneurs) of Plaigniere and of Beauvoir. This branch of the family came from England in the 15th century and were given these lands by King Richard of England. It it thought that other branches no doubt pre-dated the Hebert family that came from England.
