The ancestors of the Allbown family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Normandy where it was derived from the ancient English given name Albin, meaning white.

Early Origins of the Allbown family


The surname Allbown 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.
