Origins of surname

This is a surname which originates in a place name, probably Ebdon in Somerset, although Hebden in Yorkshire is also in the frame. The derivation of the name is from the old English heope = 'rose hips' and denu = 'valley'.

Early records

Henry Ebdon from Dorset married Sara Reed from Hampshire in St Saviour in 1786, but there is no record of the couple having children. The only other Ebdon marriage before 1842 was that of Thomas and Rosamond Mosey in St Helier in 1822. They had four children baptised in the parish during that decade.

Family businesses

This LL postcard from the 1900s was taken to show what was then the island's General Post Office in Halkett Place'; but as far as George Ebdon's family were concerned, their florist's shop next door was by far the more important establishment. Of further interest is the large sign next to the shop advertising the Scientific Dress Cutting Association at 75 Halkett Place. This was a branch of a London organisation (possibly an early example of a franchise) run by Daniel Poingdestre. More information can be found on our Poingdestre family page
