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

Hellborn Early Origins



The surname Hellborn 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]

One of the first records of the name was Thomas de Heburn who was listed in the Assize Rolls of Northumberland in 1279. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlanti c.
