The present generation of the Barebume 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 the village of Barbon
, about three miles north of Kirkby Lonsdale another small town in Cumbria
, on the River Lune.
Early Origins of the Barebume family
The surname Barebume 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

Migration of the Barebume family to the New World and Oceana
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 Barebume were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Marie Barbant, who came to Quebec in 1666; Joh Wolf Barben, who arrived in America in 1709; Anna Barben, who settled in America in 1709; Maria Barben, who came to America in 1709.
