The surname "Clayburn"as spelt, appears
to have originated in
Yorkshire, particularly in the Howden area of the East Riding of
Yorkshire, from which many
family groups around Britain and the world emanate. If the name
was brought into the East
Riding of Yorkshire from elsewhere, we have yet to discover and
prove the source.
The name "Clayburn" is used as a main
heading in the I.G.I.
We have investigated and continue to research emigration from
