Cobia is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived in Colby, a parish in the county of Norfolk.

 More

The surname Cobia was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Cobia has been recorded under many different variations, including Colby, Colbey, Coalby and others.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Cobia or a variant listed above: Anthony Colby and his wife Susannah who settled at Salem Massachusetts in 1630; Henry Colby settled in New England in 1633; Anne Colby settled in Virginia in 1655..
