The Irish surname Cribben comes from two quite distinct sources: it was an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "Mac Roibin," which was created from the Anglo-Norman given name Robin; and it also came from the Irish "ó Gribín."

Cribben Early Origins



The surname Cribben was first found in Ulster (Irish: Ulaidh), where O'Gribbin and MacGribben were recorded in the County Armagh Hearth Money Rolls of 1664-65, and it seems the name has long existed in this region, as well as in County Mayo. There are also some 16th century records of MacRoben and MacRobyn in Louth, and in the southern counties of Carlow and Wexford.
