The Chabdount name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in the settlement of Chatburn in the county of Lancashire. Thus, Chabdount is a member of the class of habitation surnames, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Chabdount Early Origins



The surname Chabdount was first found in Lancashire at Chatburn, a district chapelry and a township, in the parish of Whalley. This township is situated on the Ribble river and takes its name from one of the most distinguished characters of that time, St Chad (d. 672) a prominent 7th century Anglo-Saxon churchman and abbot of several monasteries; Bishop of the Northumbrians; and later Bishop of the Mercians and Lindsey People. The township has remained relatively small through the ages as by the end of the 19th century it had only 500 inhabitants.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Chabdount were among those contributors: William and Humphrey Chadborn who settled in New Hampshire in 1630; both of these gentlemen spelled their name with 'bourne' and 'burne' in addition to many registrations in 'born'. C. Chadburn arrived in San Francisco Cal. in 1850..
