Elements of Latin, Norman French and other languages became incorporated into English throughout the Middle Ages, and name spellings changed even among the literate. The variations of the surname Mashburn include Washbourne, Washburn, Washborne, Washborn and others.

First found in Devon where it is related the family took their name from Waseborne in that county soon after the Norman Conquest in 1066. This village was granted to Hermer from Gotshelm.

In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Mashburns to arrive on North American shores: Margerie Washborn settled in Boston Massachusettsin 1635 with her two sons, Joe, and Phillip; John Washborne settled in Virginia in 1619; one year before the "Mayflower".
