Cumberbatch: Origin of the Species

It is rare to know exactly who, what, where, when, why and how a surname came to be. However, the surname Cumberbatch has two very distinct origins. Firstly, and historically, it is a variant spelling of an English village in Cheshire called Comberbach. Secondly, it originated in Barbados, on Christmas Day 1750 and King George II gave his Royal Assent, on 8 March 1753 to an Act of Parliament to grant the surname Cumberbatch to Abraham Carleton.
