Cuthbert Surname History



A people of the Scottish/English Borderlands known as the Strathclyde Britons were the first to use the name Cuthbert. It is derived from an Old English personal name meaning bright champion.


Early Origins of the Cuthbert family


The surname Cuthbert was first found in Kirkcudbrightshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Chille Chuithbheirt), part of the present day Council Area of Dumfries and Galloway, former county in Southwestern Scotland, where they held a family seat from very ancient times. They were descended from Saint Cuthbert of Landisfarne in Northumberland. The name Kirkcudbright literally means "Cuthbert's Church.".

Migration of the Cuthbert family to the New World and Oceana


The freedom, opportunity, and land of the North American colonies beckoned. There, Scots found a place where they were generally free from persecution and where they could go on to become important players in the birth of new nations. Some fought in the American War of Independence, while others went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these Scottish settlers have been able to recover their lost national heritage in the last century through highland games and Clan societies in North America. Among them:
