Barpoane History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancient history of the Barpoane name begins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the family resided in the village of Barbon, about three miles north of Kirkby Lonsdale another small town in Cumbria, England, on the River Lune.

Early Origins of the Barpoane family


The surname Barpoane 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.

Barpoane Spelling Variations


Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Barpoane include Barbon, Barbone, Barebone, Barebayn, Barbyn, Barbyne, Barboyn, Barboyne, Barban and many more.

Migration of the Barpoane family to the New World and Oceana


Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Barpoane or a variant listed above: 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.
