An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Neighbour surname is derived from the Middle English word neighbor, which in turn comes from the Old English words "ne-ah," meaning "near," and "gebur," or "a dweller." As a name, Neighbour most likely evolved from the term of address for someone living nearby.

Neighbour Early Origins



The surname Neighbour was first found in Hertfordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence on 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 1222 when Ralph Neighbour held estates in that shire.
