Origin of last name

GARBUTT : English (Yorkshire and Durham): from any of the three Middle English personal names of Norman origin: Gerbod (ancient Germanic Gerbodo) Gerbert (ancient Germanic Gerbert Girbert) and Gerbold (ancient Germanic Gerbald Gerbold). These three names became confused at an early date. They derive from gēr ‘spear’ + either bod ‘messenger message command’ berht ‘bright’ or bald ‘bold brave’. Gerbold (French Gerbaud) was the name of a 7th-century Christian saint bishop of Bayeux as a result of whose cult the personal name was popular among the Normans and introduced by them into England.
