About the Husband surname

The English surname "Husband" is of occupational origin. Occupational names are those surnames which derive their origin from the trade or profession of the father of the initial bearer of the name as a surname. In this instance, the surname Husband was not just the name given to a married man but anyone who was entrusted with the higher domestic duties or functions in the household. The name Husband was also given to one who owned and cultivated a "husbandland" (approx 26 acres), a middle class of English villagers who lived in a house instead of a cote (small shelter or shed), and one who tilled the soil i.e. a farmer.
