The distinguished Old English surname Gebbie means "of Gopheye," and indicates someone who hails from the town of Gopheye in Dorset.

Gebbie Early Origins



The surname Gebbie was first found in Dorset, where thee family was anciently seated as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. However, many Saxon surnames survived and the family name Gebbie was first referenced in the year 1327, when Nicholas Gopheye held estates in Somerset whence they had moved from Dorset.
