I have a hunch: My Durbins, came from FRance, to England. They went from England to America, in the mid 1600's about.
It's hinted, that Durbin could have been something like D'erbonn, earlier. I had read somewhere that it possibly could have been Dearborn, in earlier times. I was thinking of a French speaking person, going to England, and how the accent might have sounded.....could it possibly have ended up being from Dearborn...Derban..Derben...and later Durbin.
I have also seen, that they were on the Normandy coast of France, and had earlier been Vikings, and not well liked...and later migrated to England...in efforts to restore somebody to some thrown....Does anybody see any similarities to any Dearborn history? Like I said, this is just a hunch. thanks. Ladylaughalot1@yahoo.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
