The rich and ancient history of the Bibbee family name dates back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes 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.

The surname Bibbee was first found in Leicestershire where they had been settled since ancient times before the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William in 1066 A.D.

Spelling variations in names were a common occurrence before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago. In the Middle Ages, even the literate spelled their names differently as the English language incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other European languages. Many variations of the name Bibbee have been found, including Bibby, Bibbee, Bibee, Bibbie and others.

Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Among the first immigrants of the name Bibbee, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were : William Bibbie, who came to Virginia in 1621; James Bibby, who came to Maryland in 1681; Mary Bibby, who settled in Virginia in 1636; Edward Bibby, who arrived in Annapolis, MD in 1719.
