  Visitation starts with Sir Richard's father, naming him Sir John Ashburnham and describing him as "knight descended from Anchetell Fitz Piers Lord of Ashburnham in the time of William the Conqueror." Note that Visitation is identifying the family name as already Ashburnham. We follow BP1934 which reports that the family name derives from a hamlet situated on the Ashburn, a small stream in Sussex.
