The origins of the Alcorne name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the village of Alchorne in the parish of Rotherfield, Sussex.

The surname Alcorne was first found in the county of Sussex, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest of 1066.

Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Alcorne were recorded, including Alcorn, Alcorne, Aldcorn, Aldcorne, Allcorn, Allcorne, Alchorn, Alchorne, Auldcorn, Auldcorne, Elcorn, Elcorne, Elchorne, Euldcorn, Euldchorne, Haldcorn, Halcorn and many more.

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Alcorne family emigrate to North America:
