Early Origins of the Sandbourn family


The surname Sandbourn 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]

Sandbourn Spelling Variations


It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Sandbourn are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Sandbourn include Sambourne, Sambourn, Sanborn, Sanbounre, Sanborne, Samborn, Samburn, Sanburn, Sandborn, Sandorne, Sanbourne, Sandbourn, Samburne, Sandburn, Sandburne and many more.

Migration of the Sandbourn family to the New World and Oceana


Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Sandbourn, or a variant listed above: John and William Samborne (sometimes spelt Sanborn) and their grandfather, the Reverend. Stephen Bachiler of Hampton, who all settled in Boston in 1632.
