Cobb Genealogy & History

Cobb genealogy is British, first appearing in Suffolk in the written records. The name originated as a nickname, based on the Old English word "cobba", meaning roughly "lump." This would have referred to a large, well-built man, and like so many other nicknames became a hereditary surname. Alternate spellings include Cobbe, Cobson, and Copson, and early on may have been recorded as Cobba or Kobbi (Old Norse). Cobb family history includes legendary baseball player Tyrus "Ty" Cobb, the all-time MLB leader in career batting average at .367. It also includes architect Henry Ives Cobb and American writer Irvin Shrewsbury Cobb.
