Husbant is one of the many new names that came to England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Husbant is for a peasant farmer. The name was originally derived from the Old English husband, which meant one who tills soil. The modern connotations of the word appeared much later.

Husbant Early Origins



The surname Husbant was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, where lands were granted to them by Duke William for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Husbant Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Husband, Husbands, Husbants, Husborne and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Husbant or a variant listed above: Thomas and Mary Husband, who arrived in Virginia in 1635; Samuel Husbants, who settled in Barbados in 1675 with his wife and servants; Christopher Husband, who settled in Maryland in 1731.
