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


The annals of Scottish history suggest that the ancestors of the name Woodburne lived among the Boernician tribe of the Scottish-English border region. The Woodburne family lived in any of a number of places of the same name in Ayrshire, Kincardine, and Midlothian. The place-name Woodburne 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 Woodburne would have lived near such a stream.

Woodburne Early Origins



The surname Woodburne 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



The ancestors of Boernician-Scottish settlers dot North America even today. They settled all along the east coast when they came over, but some went north as United Empire Loyalists at the time of the War of Independence. However, these strong lines endured as Scottish families in the United States and Canada have rediscovered much of the heritage that was taken from them centuries ago. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Woodburne, or a variant listed above:
