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


The Obie surname was created from the medieval personal names Oppy, or Obby, which were turn short forms of personal names such as Osborn, Osbert, and Osbald.

Obie Early Origins



The surname Obie was first found in Cornwall where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Penhargard. Cornwall was a land set apart, a land of mystique and quaint customs, more strongly related to Brittany and Wales than to England. It was not until the 10th century that they submitted to the Saxon rule of England. Since then, their influence has moved east into Devon, Somerset and Dorset.
