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'.
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.
