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


The Surber surname evolved from any of several places so named in Northern England. The place name comes from the Old Norse "saurr," meaning "ground," and "the Old English "byr," meaning farm.

Surber Early Origins



The surname Surber was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, as Lords of the manor of Sowerby and the parish, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. The name was spelled in the Domesday Book as Sorebi. It was recorded in the West Riding of Yorkshire, and was described as the "king's land" with two churches. It later gave it's name to Sowerby Bridge where Branwell Bronte was born.
