JOBIN Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Jobin, Jobbins, Joblin, Jobling, Joplin, and Jopling, this interesting surname is medieval English, and has at least four possible origins. The first is that it may be a diminutive of the famous name Job, introduced into Europe by returning Crusaders of the 12th century. It became as fashion to christen the children of these soldiers or pilgrims from the Holy land with biblical names, of which this was a popular example. The second possible origin is that may be a metonymic from the pre 10th century Old French "job or joppe", and describe a professional jester, and probably one who took part in the famous travelling theatres of the Middle Ages.
