Colby Genealogy & History

Colby is an English locational surname from the towns of Colby in Norfolk and Westmorland and Coleby in Lincolnshire. These villages, in turn, took their names in the first part from the Old Norse given name Koli, meaning dark or swarthy, a derivative of kol, meaning coal, and in the second part from byr, meaning settlement. Colby family history starts in 1192, when Ralph de Colebi was recorded in the Early Yorkshire Charters. Colby genealogy includes New Hampshire Governor Anthony Colby and CIA Director William Colby.
