The name Barrebum is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family 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 Barrebum family


The surname Barrebum 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.

Migration of the Barrebum family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Barrebum 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.
