DURBAN Family History

This unusual name is of French locational origin, from a place called D'urban or D'urbin in Languedoc. The family from that area are recorded heraldically before 1680. The name first appears recorded in England in the late 16th and early 17th Centuries, in the forms "Durban(n), Durbyn, Durbin". It is likely to be a French Huguenot surname, since the first influx of the continental Huguenots into England to escape religious persecutions occured during the late 16th Century. The name means "of the town or city", derived from the latin "urbs", town or city, hence "urbanus", city-dweller.
