In the annals of British history, few names go farther back than Hebbron, which started among the people of the Boernician tribe. The first family to use the name Hebbron lived in Northumberland, in the village of Hebburn in the parish of Chillingham.

Hebbron Early Origins



The surname Hebbron was first found in Northumberland at Hebburn, a township, in the parish of Chillingham, union of Glendale. "There are some remains of an ancient castle, built, and long occupied, by a family which took its name from the village." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Now part of the Tyne and Wear county, Hebburn dates back to about 1104-08 when it was first listed as Heabyrn. Literally the place name means "high burial place or tumulus," from the Old English words "heah" + "byrgen." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



The New World beckoned as many of the settlers in Ireland, known as the Scotch/Irish, became disenchanted. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlanti c. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Amongst the early settlers who could be considered kinsmen of the Hebbron family, or who bore a variation of the surname Hebbron were Thomas Hepburn, who settled in Baltimore in 1792; George Hepborne settled in Boston along with Anne, Rebecca, and Anna in 1635; Francis Hepbourne settled in Maryland in 1769..
