"ABRAHAM, ABRAM. The first of these
Hebrew names is said to mean 'chief (or father)
of a multitude,' and the second 'exalted father,'
but the meaning and derivation of both names
are uncertain. Bardsley says that Abraham
was a popular font-name in England in the
thirteenth century, and that "a glance at the
London Directory will show that in general
Abraham represents the old English stock, and
Abrahams the more modern Jewish." Abraham,
chaplain of Earl Gilbert of Strathem, a
frequent witness in the earl's charters, was
probably Abraham, bishop of Dunblane, at a later
date. He was son of a priest (Theiner, 6).
Magister Habraham appears as a charter
witness c. 1163-1175 (RPSA., p. 180), and Adam
filius Abraham witnessed a charter by
Umfridus de Berkeley of the lands of Balfeth to
the Abbey of Abirbrothoc c. 1204-1211 (RAA.,
i, p. 61). Robert filius Abraham in the parish
of Fyvy was excommunicated in 1382 (REA.,
i, p. 165), Thorn Abraam appears in Aberdeen,
1408 (CWA., p. 316), Alexander Abraham,
chaplain, witnessed a charter to William Peblis
in 1491 (Scon, p. 201), James Abram, burgess
of Inverness, was juror on an assize there in
1591 (OPS., n, p. 670), and George Abrahame
or Abram was one of the bailies there, 1641
(Rec. Inv., n, p. 177, 181). The place name
'Abraham' in Lancashire was originally
Eadburge ham, and was altered in popular speech
through a fancied connection with the personal
name Abraham. Habram (liw. Rec., i).
