Turbet is one of the many names that the Normans brought with them when they conquered England in 1066. The name Turbet came from the Norman given name Terbert.

Turbet Early Origins



The surname Turbet was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat. The definition that the name was derived from the name of a fish can be discounted as Victorian historians whimsical nonsense. The family held a family seat in Yorkshire and was a noble name during the time of King Richard 1st (about 1190 A.D.) and all indications are that this was a Norman name which appeared in the Domesday Book, [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

a survey of England taken by Duke William of Normandy in the year 1086 A.D., after his conquest of England in 1066 A.D. and appears as Turbert, a person holding lands.

Turbet Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Turbet has been recorded under many different variations, including Turbutt, Turbott, Turbert, Turbett, Turbot and many more.
