Shambourne Early Origins



The surname Shambourne 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]

Shambourne Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Sambourne, Sambourn, Sanborn, Sanbounre, Sanborne, Samborn, Samburn, Sanburn, Sandborn, Sandorne, Sanbourne, Sandbourn, Samburne, Sandburn, Sandburne and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlantic. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Shambourne 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.
