Stuber Coat of Arms / Stuber Family Crest

The surname of STUBER is a Northumberland surname familiar to the north of the border. The name was recorded in Gaelic as Sdiuord in medieval times. Other spellings of the name include STOBBAT, STUBER, STOBBERT, STOBBART and STUBBARD. The earliest record of the name appears to be STUBART (without surname) who was listed as a tenant-in-chief in the Domesday Book of 1086. Stubhard Pape was documented in County Suffolk in the year 1095, and Simon filius Stubbard was documented in 1203 in County Norfolk. Symon Stubard was recorded in Norfolk in 1275, and Richard Stobard appears in Cornwall in 1336. The bulk of European surnames in countries such as England and France were formed in the 13th and 14th centuries. The process started earlier and continued in some places into the 19th century, but the norm is that in the 11th century people did not have surnames, whereas by the 15th century they did.The acquisition of surnames in Europe during the past eight hundred years has been affected by many factors, including social class and social structure, naming practices in neighbouring cultures, and indigenous cultural tradition. On the whole, the richer and more powerful classes tended to acquire surnames earlier than the working classes and the poor, while surnames were quicker to catch on in urban areas than in more sparsely populated rural areas. These facts suggest that the origin of surnames is associated with the emergence of bureaucracies. As long as land tenure, military service, and fealty were matters of direct relationship between a lord and his vassals, the need did not arise for fixed distinguishing epithets to mark out one carl from another. But as societies became more complex, and as such matters as the management of tenure and in particular the collection of taxes were delegated to special functionaries, it became imperative to have a more complex system of nomenclature to distinguish one individual from another reliably and unambiguously. A later record of the name mentions Robert Stobbat in Monaltrie, 1682.
