Seaberg Family History

Seaberg Name Meaning

Americanized form of Swedish Sjöberg (see Sjoberg ). English: from the Middle English female personal name Seburg (Old English Sǣburg from ‘sea’ + burg ‘fortress fortified place’). English: perhaps a habitational name either from Seaborough (Somerset now in Dorset) from Old English seofon ‘seven’ + beorg ‘hill mound’ or Seaborough Hall in Mucking (Essex) which may have a similar etymology. However there is currently no evidence that these placenames gave rise to hereditary surnames.
