'He Animates By Crowing'


The Cockburn surname had appeared by the early 13th century, when it was employed to identify individuals from a district or location called Cockburn (modern spelling). The name Cockburn has been viewed as originating from the juxtaposition of 'Cock', derived from the Old English word 'cocc' meaning 'moor-cock', 'wild bird' or 'hill', with 'burn' derived from the old word 'burna' meaning 'brook' or 'stream'. There are several possible candidates for this  geographical name including: a former 'Cokoueburn' district in early medieval Roxbughshire; a place called 'Calkesburne' that was mentioned in a charter from 1162-1190 that awarded the land of Hermanston in East Lothian; the hill called Cockburn's Law, north of present-day Duns in Berwickshire, which was fortified in the Iron Age times; and the town of Cockburnspath, originally known as 'Kolbrand's Path', on the eastern coast of Scotland.
