I am researching mainly Thornber but there are many confusions between Thornber, Thornborough and Thornburgh with other variants too. You may like to look at the survey I have done of these names in four English counties. It is not uncommon for families to have records under two or three variants. In places where Thornber is more common, a number of the Thornborough records turn out to belong to the Thornber families. There seem to be at least two major groups which overlap but it is probable that Thornber is a corruption of Thornborough/Thornbrough/Thornburgh. However, Thornber goes back at least to 1500 in records in East Lancashire and West Yorkshire in England.
