Elbro History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Elbro is a name that was carried to England in the great wave of migration from Normandy following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Elbro family lived in Suffolk where they were first established as Lords of the Manor of Aldborough.

Early Origins of the Elbro family

The surname Elbro 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.

Migration of the Elbro family to the New World and Oceana

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 Elbros to arrive on North American shores: John Aldburgh who settled in Massachusetts in 1634.
