Early Origins of the Abborne family
The surname Abborne was first found in Surrey where the family trace their lineage back to Abernon listed in the Domesday Book having sprang from the fief of that name in Normandy. He was a tenant in chief in Surrey, giving name to Stoke Daubernon.  Conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Guildford and East Mosely, held by Roger de Abernon or Arburnam of Abenon in Calvados, the Norman Baron.

Abborne Spelling Variations
Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Dabernon, Darbernum, Dabernoun, Daberon, Daborne, d'Arborn, Arborn, Arbon, Arboune, Arbouin, Arbernus, Abborne, Aborn, Aborne, Abourne, Aberon and many more.

Migration of the Abborne family
To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Abborne or a variant listed above: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
