The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Babb come from when the family resided in Suffolk. The surname Babb refers to a person who came from Babe, which may refer to an area known as the Hundred of Babegh in the county of Suffolk. The place-name literally means Babba's enclosure. Babba is a personal name meaning protector.

Babb Early Origins



The surname Babb was first found in Dorset, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Babb or a variant listed above:
