Early Origins of the Golboyrne family
The surname Golboyrne was first found in Cheshire
where it was listed as Golborne, part of the Duddeston hundred
. Hence, conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant
of the lands of Golborne held by Osbern FitzTezzo a Norman noble from William Malbank, Baron
of Nantwich who was recorded in the Domesday Book
census of 1086. CITATION[CLOSE]

William was from Brecy, near Caen in Normandy
and was granted the lands by Duke William after Hastings. Golborne held an important winter Mill and was a large village in 1066. William Malbank, originally 'le Seigneur William de Brecy', may have adopted his new name Mal or Milbank from this Mill. Golborne is also a town in Greater Manchester, historically part of Lancashire
and dates back to 1187, when it was spelt Goldeburn. The place name literally meant "stream where marsh marigolds grow", derived from the Old English golde + burna. CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Golboyrne family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England
of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Golboyrne were among those contributors: Edward Golbourn, who arrived in Virginia in 1654; and Richard Golbourne, who settled in Virginia in 1658.
