The ancient roots of the Bobby family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Bobby comes from when the family lived in two distinct parishes in the county of Lincolnshire, each named Boothby.

Bobby Early Origins



The surname Bobby was first found in Lincolnshire, where the name is associated with three locations called Boothby. Hugo de Boebi, also recorded as de Bothebi, was registered in Lincolnshire in 1190. During the Middle Ages the family in Lincolnshire included several prominent landholders, such as Osbert de Boby who was recorded there during the reign of King Henry III. Hugo de Bobi, Emma de Boby, and Walter de Boby were all registered in the county in 1273. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

One relatively recent invention that did much to standardize English spelling was the printing press. However, before its invention even the most literate people recorded their names according to sound rather than spelling. The spelling variations under which the name Bobby has appeared include Bobby, Boebi, Bothebi, Boby, Bobi, Bobie, Bobbie and others.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Bobby arrived in North America very early:
