Lobb History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Lobb family


The surname Lobb was first found in Devon or Oxfordshire. Lobb is a hamlet in the parish of Great Haseley, poor-law union of Thame, hundred of Ewelme in Oxfordshire, [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
and Lobb is also a small village in west Devon, near Saunton. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Barber, Henry, British Family Names London: Elliot Stock, 62 Paternoster Row, 1894. Print.

It is generally thought that the name was a nickname for someone who was a "clumsy fellow" from the English word "lobb." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Harrison, Henry, Surnames of the United Kingdom: A Concise Etymological Dictionary Baltimore: Geneological Publishing Company, 2013. Print
[4]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
"In Somersetshire the last person in a race is called the lob," [5]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
and as such the name was quickly scattered throughout ancient England.

However, there is another possibility; that the name was in fact, Norman in origin as the Magni Rotuli Scaccarii Normanniae had two entries for the family: William Lobes, Normandy, and Henry de la Lobe, Normandy. [6]CITATION[CLOSE]
The Norman People and Their Existing Descendants in the British Dominions and the United States Of America. Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing, 1975. Print. (ISBN 0-8063-0636-X)
In both cases, the entries were from 1185-1195 and points to the possibility the some of the family emigrated to England around the time of the Conquest (1066) while others remained. Indeed the early Devon and Cornwall entries seem to agree with this thought.

Early rolls list Philip de Lobbe held lands in Devon in 1242 [7]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)
and in Cornwall, "the name of Lobb was represented in St. Kevern parish a century ago, and a gentle family of Lobb resided in Kenwyn 200 years ago, where the name still remains." [8]CITATION[CLOSE]
Guppy, Henry Brougham, Homes of Family Names in Great Britain. 1890. Print.

Other early records include Adam Lobbe, Norfolk, who was listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 [5]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
and Richard Lobbe, Somerset, 1 Edward III (during the first year's reign of Edward III) who was listed Kirby's Quest. [9]CITATION[CLOSE]
Dickinson, F.H., Kirby's Quest for Somerset of 16th of Edward the 3rd London: Harrison and Sons, Printers in Ordinary to Her Majesty, St, Martin's Lane, 1889. Print.

Despite these scattered early entries, today the name is generally understood Cornish and this is where we found the lion's share of notables and settlers.
