I am descended from Thomas Seabourne b1797 and Martha ( nee Pearce)b1807. It seems their name seemed to change throughout their lives between Seabourne and Vines and Seabourne-Vines and Vines-Seabourne.
I wondered if anyone knew the reasoning behind the name changes, or if there are any descendants still living in the area going by those names who might know.

There is one family called Vines that I know of in Wotton-Under-Edge. I only know the wife though. If I can get in touch with her (We met briefly last week) I can pass on the fact someone is looking for people with this name. I haven't met or heard of Seaborne though.

I can't help you, but you have helped me! I have been looking for a Naomi Seaborne born around 1773 without any joy - but I have just found a Naomi Vine, baptised in 1774. Possibly an aunt of your Thomas?

It seems that the family was known as Vine(s) until around 1760 or so when the alias Seabourne crept in. The names were interchanged a lot until around the 1850's. This has caused me grief until I figured out what was going on. It appears that both Vine(s) and Seabourne were used separately after 1850, perhaps when aliases were frowned upon.

I am a descendant of William Elliot Seabourne Vines but I am not sure where the Vines comes from.
