Humberson Early Origins



The surname Humberson was first found in Lincolnshire at Humberston, a large sea coast village and civil parish to the south of Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire. The village takes its name from a large boulder, the Humber Stone, which can still be seen at the entrance to the village library. The village dates back to the Domesday Book [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
where is was recorded as Humbrestone and literally meant "place by the boundary stone in the River Humber" [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
Hence, conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Humberston, held by Ivo Tailbois, chief tenant who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086.

Humberson Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Humberson family name include Humberston, Humerston, Humberstone, Humblestone, Humbleston, Hummerston, Hummerstone, Humerston, Humerstone, Hunbertson, Hubertson, Humberson, Humerston, Humberstone, Umberston, Umberstone and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Humberson family to immigrate North America: John Humberston, who arrived in Maryland in 1661; Henry Humberstone, who arrived in New Haven, CT between the years 1620-1650; as well as John Humberstone Sr., who was recorded in the census of Ontario of 1871..
