Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Saintbury in Gloucestershire, recorded in the 12th century as Seynesbury. The place name is probably from the genitive case of the Old English personal name Sǣwine (composed of the elements sǣ ‘sea’ + wine ‘friend’) + Old English burh ‘castle’, ‘fortified town’.
