The Pictish clans of ancient Scotland were the ancestors of the first people to use the name Dibble. It comes from on the lands of Dipple in Morayshire where the name can be found since very early times. The name means dweller by the hollow and is originally derived from the personal name Theobald.

Dibble Early Origins



The surname Dibble was first found in Moray, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many Scots left their country to travel to the North American colonies in search of the freedom they could not find at home. Of those who survived the difficult voyage, many found the freedom they so desired. There they could choose their own beliefs and allegiances. Some became United Empire Loyalists and others fought in the American War of Independence. The Clan societies and highland games that have sprung up in the last century have allowed many of these disparate Scots to recover their collective national identity. A search of immigration and passenger ship lists revealed many early settlers bearing the Dibble name:
