Maber History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Maber family


The surname Maber was first found in Somerset, where the name first appeared in the early 13th century. The name Maber, like many surnames, is most likely occupational in origin; in other words, the first bearer of the name took it because it pertained to his profession. The name comes from the Old English word "mawan," meaning "to mow," so the first bearer of the name was most likely one who mowed for a living. The possibility also exists that there is another English Mower family whose name is a variation on the Irish name Moore, but this line of ancestry is rare, if it exists at all.
