It was in the Scottish/English Borderlands that the Strathclyde-Briton people first used the ancient name Arbuckel. It was a name for someone who lived in Lanarkshire. The Arbuckel surname is a habitational name, taken on from the place name Arbuckle (or Arnbuckle), in the parish of Airdrie, Lanarkshire. The Gaelic name for the place was earrann buachaille, meaning the "herdsman's portion" (of land).

Arbuckel Early Origins



The surname Arbuckel was first found in Lanarkshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Lannraig) a former county in the central Strathclyde region of Scotland, now divided into the Council Areas of North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, and the City of Glasgow. John Arnbuckle was recorded as a witness in Irvine in 1499, and later John Arbuckle purchased a lot of land in the city of Glasgow in the year 1511. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
