Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Daborn family name include Dabernon, Darbernum, Dabernoun, Daberon, Daborne, d'Arborn, Arborn, Arbon, Arboune, Arbouin, Arbernus, Abborne, Aborn, Aborne, Abourne, Aberon and many more.

Migration of the Daborn family
To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Daborn family to immigrate North America: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
