It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Hogbin are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Hogbin include: Hogbin, Hockbin, Hockben, Hogben, Pigpen, Pigbin, Pickburn, Pickbourn, Pickborne, Pigben and many more.
First found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat. 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 1470 when Thomas Huckebone appeared on the tax rolls for that shire.
