    Name Meaning

    English: (i) locative name from Cowburn in Kirkham (Lancs), as the earliest bearers below suggest. The -r- is sometimes lost or metathesized. Colborne is probably a hypercorrect form, restoring an unhistorical -l- ( see Colbourne ). (ii) in WR Yorks it is possibly a variant of Colbran , as Redmonds argues, with vocalization of the -l- and metathesis of -r-, or a variant of Colbourne .
