    IT is a Hindi/Urdu word. Suba or Sooba in Urdu means a province. A revenue officer of this state or province was called a Subhedar. During British rule in India, this title was used for Non-commissioned officers in the army. This still continues with little alteration in the title a rank above the subhedar or subedar is called Subedar Major.

    P.S. : I am not a teacher of English. Just someone who loves the language.

    Don't you think it's more likely to derive from sub + header, that is, a heading of a subdivision, a sub-heading?

    I have already known "sub-head", which means a heading given to a subsection of a piece of writing.

    Yes you are right, but then you have to see the context.

    You always use the term Header and Footer while making tables and illustrations and charts.
