This is the Carbis Society web site, whether it is for or about people, places and/or occurrences.
The formation of the CARBIS ONE NAME SOCIETY was founded with the following aims:
- Maintaining an association of all CARBIS and other related persons, who may have an interest in the history, origins and development of the various and individual branches of the various CARBIS families.
- Combining with this, is the promotion of the conservation of documents, photographs and all other related materials and monuments of CARBIS name significance.
- To further the study of the CARBIS history and origins. Then at a suitable time either sponsor or self-produce a definitive publication of such study and research.
- This latter aim has been partially fulfilled with the publication of ‘The Book of CARBIS People’ by John C. CARBIS in March 2001 listed in the book market place under ISBN 0-9540529-0-0. Copies of which have been distributed to the Cornwall Record Office and a number of other research libraries for reference.
There are a number of variants to the Carbis surname, which have been registered with the Guild of One Names Studies [GOONS], which requires that all aspects of a registered surname in whatever form, should be studied.
To this end, there is now a series of comprehensive databases covering births, christenings, marriages and deaths, which have been extracted from a continuously increasing number of sources of records and other related indexes. In addition, from information that has been supplied in one form or another, from a number of persons who have an interest in this particular surname. These databases are and will continue to be added to as and when the relevant information becomes available.
Please feel free to come back to the Owner, especially if you are a newcomer to this family surname and one with whom there has not been any previous contact. If you have or hear of any information, or have any questions to which there may be some answers.
Having come this far. Would you please take the time to have a look through the following pages, which will provide something of the history and the origins of the CARBIS surname as it understood at this time.
