Dearborn Early Origins



The surname Dearborn was first found in Surrey where the family trace their lineage back to Abernon listed in the Domesday Book having sprang from the fief of that name in Normandy. He was a tenant in chief in Surrey, giving name to Stoke Daubernon. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
Conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Guildford and East Mosely, held by Roger de Abernon or Arburnam of Abenon in Calvados, the Norman Baron.

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Dearborns to arrive on North American shores:
