Hibbins History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The history of the name Hibbins begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from Robert. The name is derived from a pet form of the personal name Robert.

This practice continued on into the 18th and 19th centuries; cockney, a London dialect of the 19th century, used rhymes almost exclusively to get its point across without the "upper classes" knowing what was being said. A common diminutive of Robert is Rob and Hobb.

Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed.
