Aillibone is a name that was carried to England in the great wave of migration from Normandy following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Aillibone family lived in Normandy where it was derived from the ancient English given name Albin, meaning white.

Aillibone Early Origins



The surname Aillibone was first found in St. Taurin, Evreux, Normandy, in the year 980, as St. Aubyn. This distinguished name arrived with the Conqueror through Sir John Aubyn, and settled in Barnstaple in Devon, where he became a patron of Barnstable Abbey. The family were granted many estates and they were recorded under the name Alban in the Domesday Book.

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Aillibone arrived in North America very early: Thomas Allibone who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1813; Engel Albin settled in America in 1707.
