Hobbs

Origen: Normando. Hobbs is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from the son of Robert. In Old English, patronyms were formed by adding a variety of suffixes to personal names, which changed over time and from place to place. For example, after the Norman Conquest, sunu and sune, which meant son, were the most common patronymic suffixes. In the 12th and 13th centuries, the most common patronymic names included the word filius, which meant son. By the 14th century, the suffix son had replaced these earlier versions. Surnames that were formed with filius or son were more common in the north of England and it was here that the number of individuals without surnames was greatest at this time. First found in Somerset where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. The name Hobbs in Ireland is usually of immigrant origin having been brought to the country by settlers from England who arrived into the Province of Ulster, especially during the seventeenth century. It is in Ulster that the majority of descendants can still be found. Hobson is a variant that is also frequently found in the Northern part of the country.
