Barpoomb History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Barpoomb is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived 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 Barpoomb family


The surname Barpoomb 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.

Barpoomb Spelling Variations


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Barpoomb family name include Barbon, Barbone, Barebone, Barebayn, Barbyn, Barbyne, Barboyn, Barboyne, Barban and many more.

Migration of the Barpoomb family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Barpoomb surname or a spelling variation of the name include: 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.
