Understanding of origin precedes dates shown on this page, going back to 11th century Cheshire England. There are many variations of spelling, because most people of those ancient times did not read and write, and the recorded names were what the names sounded like to record keepers. There are even variations of spelling for the same individual; however, this is an unusual complex name, and all people with a name sounding similar are probably related. Higginbothams entered the "New World" through Virginia before the American Revolution, and were wealthy plantation owners who learned slave management during settlement on Barbados Island. African-Americans bearing any name sounding like this are descended from African slaves who took the name of their owner when emancipated, but some may also be genetically related to slave owners.
