Hepboourn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, Scottish


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

Early Origins of the Hepboourn family


The surname Hepboourn 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]

Migration of the Hepboourn family to the New World and Oceana


The New World beckoned settlers from the Scottish-English borders. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Among the early settlers bearing the Hepboourn surname who came to North America 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..
