Robus History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Robus is one of the proud Scottish names to come from the Strathclyde clans of the Scottish/English Borderlands. It is derived from the personal name Robert, which is composed of the elements hrod, meaning famous, and berht, meaning bright.

Early Origins of the Robus family


The surname Robus was first found in Stirlingshire, but we must look to Aberdeen to find one of the more interesting entries, that of Beatriux and Issobell Robie (Robye) who were listed as witches in 1597 which was not that unusual of the religious conflicts of that time. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Robus Spelling Variations


The many spelling variations in Medieval Scottish names result from the fact that scribes in that era spelled words according to sound. Translation too, was an undeveloped science, and many names were altered into complete obscurity. Over the years Robus has been spelled Robb, Robbie, Roby, Robe, MacRobbie, MacRobb and others.
