The present generation of the Baraban family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in Brabant in Flanders, which was formerly a province of France and is now part of the Netherlands.

Baraban Early Origins



The surname Baraban was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from very ancient times before the advent of the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in 1066 A.D.

Baraban Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Baraban include Brabyn, Brabyne, Brabine, Brabines, Brabant, Brabent and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Baraban were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: W. Brabine who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1820; Alexander Braband arrived in Bermuda in 1635; and then moved to Boston under the name Brabant.
