The Ebanks's although reportedly from Scotland, were probably not originally from that area.
I am sure that you know that the name derives from Ewbanks, or Ubanks, and means to come from Yew Bank, in Cumbria. Cumbria is on the Scottish Border region but is in England.
Whilst on holiday in Scotland last year, I tried to find the tartan for the Ebanks family. Alas there was none because it is an English name. I have spoken to people fom Cumbria and they tell me that there are still many Ewbanks's in the area and they are famous farmers. It may be that the Ebanks accompanied Scottish sailors, hence there Scottish link.
