Name Meaning

English: nickname, apparently altered from early Modern English shew-bread ‘the twelve loaves that were placed every Sabbath “before the Lord” on a table beside the altar of incense, and at the end of the week were eaten by the priests alone’ ( OED ), first recorded in Tyndale’s Bible translation (1530). The earliest name-form may be genuine, but a reinterpretation sparked by the contemporary interest in Bible-translation; it may stand as an intermediate form between the modern name and an original unlocated place-name in SE England, perhaps Shoebury (Essex). Compare Thomas Shewbery, 1571 in IGI (Woodchurch, Kent), or possibly the recurring minor place-name Shovelbrede ‘shovel’s breadth’ as in Shulbrede (Sussex), but both these possible origins offer phonological difficulties.
