The surname Shufflebottom was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat. This ancient name had a variety of spellings from Shovellbottom to Shoebottom. That it is a Lancashire name cannot be questioned. All historians agree that the 'bottom' appendage merely indicates that the original holder held the 'bottom land' or the choice land of the valley. The location is in south east Lancashire or possibly eastern Cheshire but the name has appeared anciently in Walton, Middleton, Cheetham, Tottington, Bury Skelmersdale, and many other places. Cheshire has the most modern representatives of the name. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year Richard de Schypperwallebottom held estates in 1285. Holders of the name, all in Lancashire, subsequently spelt it Shepobotham (1579,) Shippobotham (1582,) Geroge Shupplebottom 1621, Charles Shifabotham 1626 and Richard Shufflebotham in 1674. They originated in Shipperbottom in Lancashire.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Shufflebotham, Shufflebottom, Shufflebotam, Shovelbottom, Shoebotham, Shovellbottom, Shovell, Shubotham, Shubottom and many more.
