Cubbeart History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Cubbeart is a name of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from the personal name Jacob. The surname Cubbeart is derived from Cob, which is a pet form of the name Jacob, and is supplemented by the common diminutive suffix -et. Some experts state that the surname Cubbeart is a nickname derived from the Old English word cubit, which means elbow. One expert is dumbfounded: "I cannot explain the somewhat common and well-known surname, unless it be a diminutive or corruption of a personal name. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
