Gilbee Early Origins



The surname Gilbee was first found in Lincolnshire at Gilby, a hamlet in the parish of Pilham. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

However, more records point to Leicestershire where the surname was descended from the tenant of the lands of Galby or Gilby held by Robert Burdet's son from Hugh Grandesnil, a Norman noble who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086.

The earliest record of the family was Geoffrey Gilbe who was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Leicestershire in 1327. A few years later, John Gilby was listed in 1414. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
