Early Origins of the Elborough family
The surname Elborough was first found in Suffolk
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor of Aldborough. At the taking of the Domesday Book
survey in 1086, a census of England
initiated by Duke William of Normandy
after his conquest of England
in 1066, Aldborough was held by Norman from his chief tenants, the Abbot of Ely and Robert Malet's mother. Conjecturally the family name is descended from this source. At this time, Aldborough consisted of a village with two churches.
