Hello from Fiji. Looking for Elbourne family history.
« on: Tuesday 03 March 15 22:15 GMT (UK) »
Bula.

Posting my first topic from Fiji. My family are of mixed blood with our surname being Elbourne. We are planning a family reunion for 2017. I would like to draw up a family tree of the Elbourne family which also touches on the origins of the name and where in England it most likely originated. I would be very grateful for any help that could be given.

Vinaka.

If you go to the Diocese of Chelmsford website, you will see that the Director of Education is a Tim Elbourne and he comes from the Cambridge area. There may well be a way of making contact with him through that website and knowing him, if he finds a connection with Fiji, he will be very interested.
