The generations and branches of the Ibbotson family share a name that has its roots in the ancient Anglo-Saxon
culture of Britain. The name Ibbotson comes from the baptismal name Isabel.
Early Origins of the Ibbotson family
The surname Ibbotson was first found in Yorkshire
, where they were a major north country family. By example, "Denton Park, the property of Sir Charles Ibbetson, Bart., lord of the manor, is a handsome mansion, built in 1760, and situated in a wellwooded park, overlooking the river Wharfe." CITATION[CLOSE]

Ibbotson Spelling Variations
Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon
surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations
. Changes in Anglo-Saxon
names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Ibbotson include Ibbetson, Ibbotson, Ibbitson, Ibetson, Ibotson, Ibitson, Ibbet, Ibbot, Ibbit, Ibiot, Ibboteson, Ibotessone, Ibbison and many more.

Migration of the Ibbotson family to the New World and Oceana
Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Ibbotson or a variant listed above:

The Ibbotson Motto
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Vixi liber et moriar
Motto Translation: I have lived a freeman and will die one.
