Ebelthite is a fairly rare English surname.

The Ebelthite surname is properly a variation of the surname Hebblethwaite. Hebblethwaite is a place name in Sedbergh, Yorkshire, England. There is also Hebblethwaite Hall, Hebblethwaite Lane and Hebblethwaite cave found in Sedbergh. The origin is uncertain however the 'thwaite' element is from the Old Norse þveit for a piece of land or paddock.[1]

There are no records found yet of the family surname spelling of Ebelthite prior to 1720, and this is possibly due to the spelling change from Hebblethwaite to Ebelthite around that time.

Distribution[edit | edit source]

Ebelthite families can be found in and around London in England, and also family clusters in Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire, going back to 1720.

There is an Ebelthite family in South Africa (who emigrated there around 1840) some in Australia, and very small families in Canada and the United States. They all appear to have emigrated from England.
