The name Chadboourne has a long Anglo-Saxon heritage. The name comes from when a family lived in the settlement of Chatburn in the county of Lancashire. Thus, Chadboourne is a member of the class of habitation surnames, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Chadboourne Early Origins



The surname Chadboourne 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



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Chadboourne, or a variant listed above: 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..
