Whitburn Surname History



Early Origins of the Whitburn family


The surname Whitburn was first found in Herefordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. 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 year 1327 when Thomas de Whitbourn held lands.
