The origins of the Barben name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Barben was originally derived from a family having lived in the village of Barbon, about three miles north of Kirkby Lonsdale another small town in Cumbria, England, on the River Lune.

Barben Early Origins



The surname Barben was first found in Westmorland, (now known as Cumbria) where they held a family seat at Barbon Manor from ancient times. Arguably the name could have originated from Barbourne, a parish in Worcestershire and if the surname originated in southern England, it is likely from this latter source. It seems that people from both locals claim their origin of the name as distinct. Barebone (1596-1679), the London leather merchant and preacher descended from the Worcestershire parish.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
