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.

Migration of the Sandburne family to the New World and Oceana
at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Sandburnes to arrive on North American shores: John and William Samborne (sometimes spelt Sanborn) and their grandfather, the Reverend. Stephen Bachiler of Hampton, who all settled in Boston in 1632.
