I too would be interested in any replies you may get to your enquiry. The only origin I have found was in a book of Cornish surnames which states: "Breakaway from Carnebone [spelt Carnebwen 1298 - hence Ebwen's rock-pile". I believe that Carn[e] was an old Cornish word for a pile of rocks or a small rocky hill. Perhaps we may hear from others on this subject.
