Early Origins of the Arbon family
The surname Arbon 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.

Arbon Spelling Variations
Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Arbon family name include Dabernon, Darbernum, Dabernoun, Daberon, Daborne, d'Arborn, Arborn, Arbon, Arboune, Arbouin, Arbernus, Abborne, Aborn, Aborne, Abourne, Aberon and many more.

| Arbon migration to the United States ||+|
To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Arbon family to immigrate North America:
