About the Yarbrough surname

The English Yarborough family is one of the oldest families in England. The Yarbroughs actually can be traced back to 853 AD when the House of Yarborough was formed by Germund.The family was of Danish origin and it is assumed that they came into England (then known as Anglo-land) during the Danish invasion in 800Ad. The Danes in England were enemies of the Anglo-Saxons and they sided with the French William, called William The Conqueor of Normandy, during the invasion of 1066AD. As a result William awarded these Danes with various estates when he came into power. According to records at this time Eustachius de Yarburgh, a descendent of Germund, was made Lord of Yarburgh, which was known by both names, (Yarburgh & Yarborough) This estate of course received a charter from the King and was allowed a representative in Parliment. The Yarborough or Yarburgh family is reportedly the eleventh oldest recorded family in England and the longest in the New Land.
