Dibbin History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Dibbin family

The surname Dibbin was first found in Hampshire at Dibden, a small village that is listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Depedene and was held by Odo of Winchester at that time. [1] The name Dibden is from the Old English words "deop" + "denu" which collectively meant "deep valley." [2] "This place, the name of which, anciently Depedene, was descriptive of its situation in a thickly wooded dell, was of some importance at the time of the Conquest." [3] The first record of the family was Geoffrey de Depeden, Norfolk, c. 1150 as listed in the History of Norfolk. Later, the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 listed Randolph de Depeden in Oxfordshire. [4] In 1332 Thomas Dybyn was listed as holding estates in the Dibden, Hampshire area. The Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 list Ricardus Depeden. [4]
