    Name Meaning

    English:

    from the Middle English female personal name Stanburgh, representing an unrecorded Old English Stānburg, from stān ‘stone’ + burg ‘fortress’.

    occasionally a habitational name from one or more places so named, including Stanborough in Bishops Hatfield (Hertfordshire), and perhaps also Stanborough in Halwell (Devon) and Stanbro in Elmstone Hardwicke (Gloucestershire). The Hertfordshire and Devon placenames derive from Old English stān ‘stone, rock’ + beorg ‘hill, mound’, while the Gloucestershire placename derives from Old English stān + burg ‘fortress’.
