An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The roots of the Woodbine family are in the Boernician tribe of ancient Scotland. The Woodbine family lived in any of a number of places of the same name in Ayrshire, Kincardine, and Midlothian. The place-name Woodbine comes from the Old English words, wudu and burna, which mean wood and stream. The place-name referred to a stream which ran through the woods. The original bearer of the surname Woodbine would have lived near such a stream.

Woodbine Early Origins



The surname Woodbine was first found in Northumberland, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, before and after the Norman Conquest of 1066.

The Great Migration



Some of the Boernician-Scottish Clan families who came to North America were Loyalists who went north to Canada after the American War of Independence. Families on both sides of the border went on to found two of the world's great nations. This century, families with Scottish roots have rediscovered their heritage through highland games and clan societies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Woodbine or a variant listed above: Mary Woodburne, who came to in Virginia in 1685 with her husband; as well as James W. Robert and William Woodburn, who both arrived in Philadelphia between 1864-1878..
