HARBERT Family History

Recorded as Harbert, Herbert, and the patronymics as shown below, this is regarded as an English surname. It derives from the male given name Haribeort, of the pre 7th century. This is composed of the elements "heri or hari", meaning an army, and "berht", bright or famous. The Norman-French spelt it as Herbert or Latinised as Herbertus, and after 1066 this spelling became confused and diffused with the corresponding Anglo-Saxon Haribeorht. It is said to be recorded as Harbertus, Herbertus and Hereberd in the famous Domesday Book of 1086.
