Chadboirn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Chadboirn is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the settlement of Chatburn in the county of Lancashire. Thus, Chadboirn is a member of the class of habitation surnames, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Early Origins of the Chadboirn family


The surname Chadboirn 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.

Migration of the Chadboirn family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Chadboirns to arrive in North America: 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..
