Spelling variations of this family name include: Zobel, Zobell, Zobele, Zobeli, Zoble and many more.

First found in Silesia, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. In Silesia the family was known to have lived in the region of Liegnitz. Chronicles mention the nearby village of Sobolow, which may have leant its name to the oldest branch of this name, as early as 1287. In 1391, chronicles record Mertin Czobelaw of Liegnitz.
