The surname Starbuck was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Starbeck near Harrogate. The Saxon influence of 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 1379 when Robertus Starbok held estates in that shire.
