I've just stumbled accross the Stobart segment of this message board and am delighted to hear that there are so many Stobarts in this corner of the globe. I am a Stobart and was born in England (I came out to California two years ago). My father's family are from the north of England (Darlington). I was born in the south and there are VERY few Stobarts there (literally one or two families). I'm afraid I know very little of the Stobart origins but would love to know what you have learned. I suspected they originated in Scotland... there are a few more Stobarts in the north than the south. If you have any origin information, please pass it on! Thanks!
