Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Couleborn is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived 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.

Couleborn Early Origins



The surname Couleborn 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.

The Great Migration



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 Couleborns to arrive in North America: 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.
