Gobin History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Early Origins of the Gobin family
The surname Gobin was first found in Bedfordshire and Derbyshire. The Pipe Rolls of 1130 list Hugh Gubion as holding lands in Northamptonshire in 1130 and in 1165 Richard Gubiun, or Gobio, held fiefs in Bedfordshire and Derbyshire from Beauchamp, and Ferrers Earl of Derby 
In Bedfordshire, "Higham-Gobion, a small village about nine miles from Luton, derived its additional name from the family of Gobion, to whom the manor belonged from an early period till the year 1301; when it passed by marriage to the Botelers." 
Gobions in Hertfordshire was another of their manors. Richard Gobion, of that place, and of Knaptoft in Leicestershire, was the last male heir, and died in 1300, leaving two daughters: Hawise, married to Ralph le Boteler of Norbury in Staffordshire; and Elizabeth, married to Sir Robert Paynel, of Boothby-Paynel, Lincolnshire. Hugh Gubiun served as Sheriff of Northamptonshire in 1161 and 1163. Gobions in the parish of Up-Havering, and Gobions in Toppesfield, retain their name in Essex, where they had a considerable estate. 
"Sir Hugh Gobyun, of York, occurs about 1300 in Palgrave's Parliamentary Writs. The name was corrupted to Gubbins." "Gebon, or Gibbon, is a corruption of Gobion, a very considerable family, which held the estate of Le Gibbon's Fee in Bumsted, one at Toppesfield, and others in divers parts of the county."
