Shernborne Early Origins



The surname Shernborne was first found in Norfolk at Shernborne, a civil parish that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was listed as Scernebrune at that time. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
Conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Shernborne on the Sandrigham estate, held by Berner the Crossbowman, a Norman noble, who was recorded as under-tenant to Bishop Odo. The place name literally means "dirty or muddy stream," having derived from the Old English words "scearn" + "burna." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
Rather large, the parish comprises about 1300 acres, of which more than 1200 are arable. The estate was for many generations the property of the Shernbourne family, whose ancient residence, the Hall, is now a farmhouse. The church was built by Thorpe, Lord of Shernbourne, when Felix, Bishop of the East Angles came to the area converting the inhabitants to Christianity. Today, only the nave remains, but on the north side are sepulchral brasses with the effigies of Lord and Lady Shernbourne.
