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

Chatburn Early Origins



The surname Chatburn 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



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Chatburn arrived in North America very early:
