Samborn Early Origins



The surname Samborn was first found in Warwickshire at Sambourn, formerly spelled Sambourne, a hamlet and civil parish in the parish of Coughton and including Evesham Abbey. The name literally means "sandy stream" derived from the Old English "sand" + "burna" [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)

The earliest reference to Sambourne is in 714 when it was listed as being given by Egwin Bishop of Worcester to the monastery at Evesham upon its foundation. Years later the Domesday Book [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
the village was listed as Sandburne and was held as "the land of the Church of Evesham." At that time, there was land for 4 ploughs, 2 slaves, 2 villagers and 4 smallholders with 3 ploughs and was worth 20-30 shillings.

By the seventeenth century, Sambourne was one of the earliest centers of the local needle-making industry, By the late 1800s, the village contained 662 residents and comprised 2,200 acres. Today, the village has 1,805 residents as of 2001 and is now largely agricultural.

One of the first records of the family was Peter de Samborne who was listed in Somerset in Kirby's Quest temp. 1 Edward III. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. 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 Samborn were among those contributors: John and William Samborne (sometimes spelt Sanborn) and their grandfather, the Reverend. Stephen Bachiler of Hampton, who all settled in Boston in 1632.
