Alternatively, the surname's origin could lie in Cumberworth, a small village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire. This local was listed as Combreuorde in the Domesday Book. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
In all cases, the place names derive their origin from the Old English personal name "Cumbre" + "worth" as in "enclosure of a man called Cumbra, or of the Britons." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
