Kilburn Family History

Kilburn Name Meaning
English: habitational name from a place in North Yorkshire or one in Derbyshire, both of uncertain etymology. They are possibly named from an Old English personal name Cylla or Old English cyl(e)n ‘kiln’ + burna ‘stream’. The place of this name in London has apparently not contributed to the surname.
