Culbert’s Court, located in the middle of Little York Street, Belfast [Ireland, now Northern Ireland, U.K.; had 15 small houses in 1860.]
Culbert Street, Portsoy, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, U.K. - The people in Portsoy used to call Culbert Street - The Culbert Rig and our late local historian Jim Slater had a theory that a gentleman named Culbert had a croft at this location. I do not know what evidence he had to arrive at this conclusion. The street slopes down from The Square and at the bottom of the street there is a culvert which carries the water from the Loch, formerly the mill dam, to the sea. I have heard culvert mispronounced culbert. There is also a possibility that your name may be a mis-spelling of Gilbert. When the registration of Births, Deaths and Marriages came into effect a number of people were illiterate and it depended on the Registrar how names were spelled. Gilbert may have been mispronounced to sound Culbert. [ref. Councillor Jack Mair, email: Cllr.J.Mair@aberdeenshire.gov.uk, recd. 6 Oct 2008]
