The Ruberry surname is a habitational name, taken on from any of various places so named: for example, Rubery in Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The place names come from the Old English "ruh," meaning "rough," or "overgrown," and "beorg," or "hill."

The surname Ruberry was first found in Devon at Roborough, a village in the South Hams, that dates back to at least the Domesday Book where it was listed as Raweberge and literally meant "rough hill," having been derived from the Old English ruh + beorg [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
