Where did the English Hibbens family come from? What is the English Hibbens family crest and coat of arms? When did the Hibbens family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Hibbens family history?

The name Hibbens is from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of the Britain and comes from Robert. The name is derived from a pet form of the personal name Robert. In England, in the Middle Ages, rhyming was often used as a device. This practice continued on into the 18th and 19th centuries; cockney, a London dialect of the 19th century, used rhymes almost exclusively to get its point across without the "upper classes" knowing what was being said. A common diminutive of Robert is Rob and Hobb.

Hibbens has been spelled many different ways, including Hobbins, Hobbin, Hobbis, Hobbiss, Hoben and others.

First found in Huntingdonshire, where they held a family seat from very early times.
