The ancestors of the bearers of the Cooleboorne family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in Colburn, a village and civil parish near Catterick in the North Riding of Yorkshire. It is from the place-name that the family name is derived.

Cooleboorne Early Origins



The surname Cooleboorne was first found in Yorkshire where one of the first of the name on record was Geoffrey Colburn in 1208 who held estates in the North Riding of Yorkshire in the parish of Catterick, but historians conjecturally relate the name to Colbrand, a name which appeared in the Domesday Book in the county of Devon.

Cooleboorne Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Cooleboorne include Colburn, Colburne, Colborne, Colbourne, Coulbourne, Colbourn, Cullburn, Colborn, Colbryn, Coulbryne, Culbourne, Cullburne and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Cooleboorne or a variant listed above: William Colburn of Boston who came in Winthrop's fleet in 1630. He was elected Deacon and ruling elder of the Colony's Church. John Colburn of Dedham, Massachusetts, settled in 1640 and had five sons.
