Where did the English laber family come from? What is the English laber family crest and coat of arms? When did the laber family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the laber family history?The ancient name of laber finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from a name for a person who worked as the laborer. This surname was originally derived from the common trades of the medieval era which transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries. The laborer was also known as the taskman or the workman.
Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the laber family name include Labourer, Labor, Laborer, Labour, Laboura, Laberer, Labberer and many more.
