HUMBERT Family History

Recorded as Humbart, Humbert, Imbert, Ambart, Umbert, and others, in these spellings this is loosely an English surname, but one of pre 5th century Germanic or French origins. In German speaking countries such as Germany itself, Austria and Switzerland where the spelling is Humboldt, Humbolt, Humbrecht, Humprecht, Hummer, Humpertz and others, it is much more widely recorded. It translates as "famous bear cub" from the pre 5th century "hun - berht" the bear. Introduced into the British Isles at about the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066, it is arguably a pagan name but it seems that it was accepted by the Christian church and St.
