Origins of surname

This is a medieval English surname of Viking origins. It is derived from the Norse personal name Asbiorn, composed of the elements As= 'god' and Bjorn = 'the bear. The Vikings were keen on names which indicated strength and conquest. The name was also recorded in Normandy, but the family in one of the trees below originated neither in England, nor Normandy, but were of German descent. Their surname started life as Asbrandt, and was anglicised when they moved to England.

Early records

The name first appeared in Jersey records in the mid-17th century and families were established in St Martin and Grouville. They appear to have died out, and new lines were established in the 19th century. One of these started with soldier William Osborne, who married Mary Hubert in St Helier in 1806.
