Early Origins of the Shelburn family
The surname Shelburn was first found in Essex

The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that county. They held a family seat at Colchester.
