Origins of surname

This surname is derived from place names in Derbyshire and Devonshire and means 'Cobba's Hill'. Cobba was a large, well-built man, or 'lump' and dun meant low hill.

Early records

The surname first appeared in Jersey records in 1823 with the baptism of Jane Cobden, daughter of William and Elizabeth de la Cour. Her younger brother William, married to Harriet Jane Gilbert, was head of the first family to become established, in the 1840s and '50s. Although he is presumed to have been born in Jersey, there is no record of his baptism.
