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

The name Hibler is rooted in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It was originally a name for someone who worked as a hobeller, or light horseman. A hobler held tenure on his Lord's lands by maintenance of a hobby, or horse, for use in the service of his Lord. Occupational names that were derived from the common trades of the medieval era transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries. Occupational names have remained fairly common in the modern period. This is attested to by the continuing appearance of occupational suffixes at the end of many English surnames. Some of these suffixes include: herd, monger, maker, hewer, smith, and wright. Similarly, surnames of office such as this one, included military, judicial, papal and other positions of authority, and are widespread throughout Europe. Those who were involved in the military, or feudal armies, were given names such as the English surname Archer, the French name Chevalier and the German name Jeger, which means hunter. Names that were derived from judicial and papal titles, such as Bailiffe, Squire and Abbott, are still commonly seen with the same surname spelling today.

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Hibler are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Hibler include Hobler, Hoble, Hobeler, Hobbeler, Hoblair, Hoblaire and many more.

First found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from the Middle Ages.

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Hibler or a variant listed above:
