The Cobban Family Record

The Cobban family, at least in name, came from a Norse background.  It derives from the Norse given name "Kolbeinn", literally meaning a black or dark bone or in this case of describing a person possibly "dark thigh".  This given name produces the patronymic surname "Kolbeinnson".  In the fjord area of Norway around the town of Geiranger, at the head of a fjord about 225km NNW of Oslo and 75km inland from Alesund on the Norwegian Sea their is a lake in the mountains behind the town called Kolbeinwasser.

The family described on this site came from the parish of Duffus in Morayshire between Elgin and the coast of the Moray Firth, and particularly from around a shallow bay called Loch Spynie, which was drained in the early 19th century.  Parish records, in which the surname appears as "Coban" or "Couban", demonstrate that they pronounced the surname with a long "O" in the first syllable.  Although the family spoke Gaelic they conformed to the established Church of Scotland, whose records were maintained in English.  After the catastrophe of the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, which culminated in the disastrous battle not far away at Culloden the name came to be spelled "Cobban" perhaps in imitation of the unrelated family in Aberdeenshire which used that spelling and which remained loyal to the established government during the rebellion.
