Osborne Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Osborne Family History


Osborne Family History


The Osborne ancient family history was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. Meaning 'the son of Osbern', this is a baptismal name that was established in England before the Norman Conquest. Variants include Osborn, Osbourn, Osbourne, Osburn, Osbon, Osband, Usborn and Usborne. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout the above islands. Examples of such are a Gerard filius Oseberne, County Huntingdonshire, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273 and a Osbarn Dawson, who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax', of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in the year 1379. A Robert Oseberne, County Oxfordshire was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', in the thirteenth century. In Ireland settlers bearing the name Osborne became established in Counties Waterford and Tipperary during the 1550's. The name is now well established throughout the four Provinces of Ireland. The Osborne family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Osborne descendants.
