Bourbon Family HistoryThis interesting and uncommon name is of Old French origin, introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066, and distinguished by being first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086. It has two possible interpretations; firstly, it may be a diminutive form of an Old Germanic personal name, "Burdo", of now obscure origins, which has also generated the surnames Burditt, Burden, Burdon, Burdoun and Bourdon. The personal name is recorded in Norfolk in 1166: Hamo filius (son of) Burdun.
