Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Culbert, Colbert, Culbertson, Colbertson, Culberts, Colberts, Coulbert, Culbart, Culbirt and many more.

First found in Cheshire and Lancashire where they were granted lands by William the Conqueror for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Culbreath or a variant listed above were: Symon Culberton, who arrived in Virginia in 1664; John Culbert who landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1802; followed by George and Matthew in 1811.
