Surname spelled as Ogbourne, Ogborne, and Ogburn

Extensive researches have been undertaken to trace the origin of Symon in the UK and it seems likely (though not proven) that Symon came from the City of Gloucester in the west of England, where several generations of Symon Ogbourne's lived before this date. The following references to a line of Symons in Gloucestershire have been found, although research has been hampered due to the absence of a number of church registers of births and marriages in the early part of the 17th century.

A study of the surnames in the group to try to establish clues to the origin in England of these people, but the surnames proved to be common in widespread parts of the country, e.g. from Cornwall to Lancashire.

A reference to a Symon Ogborne, aged about 20 of Hardwicke, Gloucestershire is found in "Men & Armour for the County of Gloucester" in 1608. [Please note, this was earlier stated in error to be Thornbury, Gloucestershire] This record was compiled on the King's instructions to identify the men available and fit to fight in a war with France.

Searches in the church records of Hardwicke, (now known as Elmstone Hardwicke) near Cheltenham Gloucestershire have been unrewarding - no record of an Ogbourne in the following records was found in: Baptisms 1564 - 1652, Marriages 1594 - 1612, Burials 1608-1620. This suggests that Symon’s residence in [Elmstone] Hardwicke was temporary, rather than long standing.

Given that other Ogbourne's were found in the same ‘Men & Armour ‘ record in Thornbury, one might be tempted to think that the Hardwicke concerned was the village of that name to the south-west of Gloucester City, and nearer to Thornbury, but the parish in which Symon is listed is clearly in the hundred of Westminster now known as Deerhurst. The Dean of Westminster was Lord of the hundred in those times, hence the name.

Two daughters were born to a Symon Ogborne and christened in the Gloucester City church of St Mary Lode in the 1620s: Anne OGBURNE C: 10 Jan 1622. Father: Simon OGBURNE Susanna OGBORNE C: 15 Mar 1628. Father: Symon OGBORNE The registers for for St Mary de Lode parish actually commence from 1675, and the Bishop’s transcripts have therefore been searched for the above entries. 1619, half of 1621, 1627, and 1630 - 1636 are missing.

Ogbourne, Ogburn, Ogborne, it makes no difference – all are variations of the same name. In the United States the name is more commonly spelt as Ogburn, though descended from people who at the time of emigration spelt the name as Ogbourne or Ogborne. It seems clear that the name was first used by people who had associations with the villages now known as Ogbourne St George, Ogbourne St Andrew and Ogbourne Maisey in the County of Wiltshire, south west England
