Hi Emma,

Which country do you live in (this helps to work out where you fit in the family tree).

The name WENBAN (earlier it was WENBOURNE, WENBORNE, WENBORN etc) comes from Waena's Bourne, meaning Waena's stream. There is a property in Wadhurst in Sussex of this name, and either the family took the name from the property or the property took the name from the family. The family name is found in Wadhurst and neighbouring Mayfield as early as 1295.

Regards
Jenny Joyce
