Roseborough Early Origins



The surname Roseborough was first found in Austria, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. From early on members of the family moved westward, and chronicles first mention Jacob zum Rosenbaum of Mainz in 1293, and H. Rosenbom of Haldensleben in 1350.
