An ancient Strathclyde-Briton family from the Scottish/English Borderlands were the first to use the name Robbertome. They lived in Lanarkshire.

Robbertome Early Origins



The surname Robbertome was first found in Lanarkshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Lannraig) a former county in the central Strathclyde region of Scotland, now divided into the Council Areas of North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, and the City of Glasgow, where they held a family seat in Roberton from very ancient times. The name was given by Robert, brother of Lambin, about the year 1220, often confused with Robertson, this name appears to be as old as if not older than the Robertsons of Struan.
