Elbombe History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Elbombe is a name whose history on English soil dates back to the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066. The Elbombe family lived in Normandy where it was derived from the ancient English given name Albin, meaning white.

Early Origins of the Elbombe family


The surname Elbombe 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.

Elbombe Spelling Variations


Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations.

The name has been spelled Albone, Allibone, Hallibone, Albin, Allbahn, Alibone, Allbones, Allbone, Alban, Aubyn, Aubyn, Aubin, Auban, Ellibone, Elbin, Ellban, Ellbone and many more.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Elbombe or a variant listed above were: Thomas Allibone who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1813; Engel Albin settled in America in 1707.
