The name Elbans was brought to England by the Normans when they conquered the country in 1066. The ancestors of the Elbans family lived in Normandy where it was derived from the ancient English given name Albin, meaning white.

Early Origins of the Elbans family


The surname Elbans was first found in St. Taurin, Evreux, Normandy, in the year 980, as St. Aubyn. This distinguished name arrived with the Conqueror through Sir John Aubyn, and settled in Barnstaple in Devon, where he became a patron of Barnstable Abbey. The family were granted many estates and they were recorded under the name Alban in the Domesday Book.

Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Elbanss were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America:
