Ellbourn/Ellbourne/Elbourn

Researcher: Marguerite ELLBOURN
Other Names:

Edward, or Arthur Edward, ELLBOURN, was born about 1835. A PRO record shows his birthplace as Weymouth, Dorset. Marriage certificates show his father's name as William. He may also have had a brother William. Arthur Edward joined the navy when 17 years old and served aboard the HMS Victory for a few months, then joined HMS Highflyer which was involved in the Crimea War. Arthur Edward may have been the Edw. Ellbourne who deserted "Rolling Wave" in Adelaide, South Australia in 1857. He married twice in South Australia and has 100s of descendants in this State, which is the only place in the whole wide world which appears to spell the name ELLBOURN with two Ls. Arthur Edward died in Aldinga, South Australia in 1911. I would be delighted to hear from anybody researching the name of ELLBOURN.
