The Bibby name is an important part of the history of the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Bibby is derived 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.

Bibby Early Origins



The surname Bibby 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.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Bibby family emigrate to North America:
