This interesting surname of English origin with variant spellings Dauber, Dawber, Daber, Dober, Doberer, etc., is an occupational name for a builder using wattle and daub, from an agent derivative of the Middle English verb "daube(n)" meaning "to coat with a layer of plaster", from the Old French "dauber" "to coat with whitewash". The surname dates back to the early 13th Century, (see below). Further recordings include one Robert le Daubur (1221) "The Curia Regis Rolls of Berkshire", and Nicholas le Doubur (1260), "The Assize Court Rolls of Lancashire". The church records include one William Dawber who was christened on marched 11th 1571, in Frodsham, Cheshire. Ellen, daughter of Ricardi Dawber, was christened on September 5th 1624, and his daughter Jane was christened on July 24th 1631, both in Frodshaw, Cheshire. Edmund Dawber married Margaret Gates on April 24th 1626, at St. Mildred Poultry with St. Mary Colechurch, London. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Hugo Dauber, witness, which was dated 1219, in the "Assize Court Rolls of Yorkshire", during the reign of King Henry 111, known as "The Frenchman", 1216 - 1272. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
