Origins Available: English, Scottish


The Barberton surname is derived from the Anglo-Norman French word "barbier," in turn from the Late Latin "barbarius," or "barba, " meaning "beard." As such, it was originally an occupational name for a barber, who in Medieval times, not only cut hair and gave shaves, but also practiced surgery and pulled teeth.

Barberton Early Origins



The surname Barberton was first found in Warwickshire, where early Alan and John le Barbur were listed in Assize Rolls of 1248.

Barberton Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Barbour, Barber, Barberton and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Barberton or a variant listed above: Henry Barber, who came to Virginia in 1623; Francis Barber, who came to Virginia in 1635; George Barber who arrived in Virginia in 1635, aboard the "Transport," and was later a freeman of Dedham, MA.
