This surname of HORNBUCKLE is a corruption of the name HARBOTTLE which is a locational name 'of Harbottle' a township in the parish of Hallystone, County Northumberland. Local surnames, by far the largest group, derived from a place name where the man held land or from the place from which he had come, or where he actually lived. These local surnames were originally preceded by a preposition such as "de", "atte", "by" or "in". The names may derive from a manor held, from working in a religious dwelling or from literally living by a wood or marsh or by a stream. The name was originally derived from the Old English word HYRABOTL. Early records of the name mention HIRBOTLE (without surname) who was recorded in 1220 in Northumberland, and HIREBOTEL (without surname) appears in 1279 in County Yorkshire. Following the Crusades in Europe a need was felt for a family name. This was recognized by those of noble blood, who realised the prestige and practical advantage it would add to their status. Other records of the name mention Richard de Herbotell, during the reign of Edward I (1272-1307). Ralph Harbotell and Cristina Warren were married in London in the year 1537. Surnames as we know them today were first assumed in Europe from the 11th to the 15th Century. They were not in use in England or in Scotland before the Norman Conquest, and were first found in the Domesday Book. The employment in the use of a second name was a custom that was first introduced from the Normans. They themselves had not long before adopted them. It became, in course of time, a mark of gentler blood, and it was deemed a disgrace for gentlemen to have but one single name, as the meaner sort had. It was not until the reign of Edward II (1307-1327) it became general practice amongst all people. Later instances of the name include Anne, daughter of William HORNBUCKLE, who was baptised at St. Peter, Cornhill, London in the year 1633, and William HORNEBUCKLE was a parish clerk at St. James's, Clerkenwell, London in the year 1673. Richard HORNBUCKLE and Hanna Milton were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in 1806.
