Where did the English Bibby family come from? What is the English Bibby family crest and coat of arms? When did the Bibby family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Bibby family history?The Bibby name is an important part of the history of the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Bibby is derived from Bibbe, an ancient personal name which is now a Yorkshire and Lancashire surname. A family named Bibby, which possessed a freehold at Ribchester during the 14th century, is descended from Richard Bibby, who lived in the late 13th century and who was the son of a woman named Bibbi.
Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Bibby were recorded, including Bibby, Bibbee, Bibee, Bibbie and others.

In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Bibby family emigrate to North America:
