The origins of the Barnoombe name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the parish named Barnham in Hampshire. Further research showed the name was derived from the Old English words beorg, meaning hill, and ham, meaning homestead.

Barnoombe Early Origins



The surname Barnoombe was first found in Hampshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Southwick, some say, from the time of the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Barnoombe family emigrate to North America: James Barnham who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1785.
