This is an English locational surname. It originates from a place called Hebble End, now just a locality but in earlier times at least a hamlet, near Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire or from living by the River Hebble which is in the same area. Another possible origin is as a short form of the relatively popular surname Hebblethwaite. This occurs perhaps not surprisingly, in a wide range of spellings. Hebblethwaite is from a village much further north, on the borders of North Yorkshire and Cumbria. The word "hebble" is apparently Norse or Danish -Viking and means "plank bridge" with Hebblethwaite being the plank bridge by the meadow. Locational surnames are usually "from" names. That is to say names given to people as easy identification after they left their original homes to move somewhere else. In this case the surname is quite well recorded in the spellings of Hebel, Hebbel, Hebble and others far away in the city of London. The first known example is that of Anthonye Heabell at St Bolotophs without Aldgate, on November 25th 1558, in the first year of the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1st (1558 - 1603)
