An surname dating to circa 13th/14th century England. This particular surname is actually a corruption of earlier names, either Starbok or Starbeck. The origins of the name reach back to old Norse 'stor' and 'bok.' Combined these words amount to 'big stream.'
The first record of a Starbuck in the Americas was a one Edward Starbuck, circa 1635. I am a direct decendant of said man, and am therefore a 14th generation Starbuck in America.
