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

Chattburn Early Origins



The surname Chattburn 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



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Chattburn 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..
