Hibbs History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Hibbs is a name of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from the baptismal name Isabella. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are very few Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.

Early Origins of the Hibbs family


The surname Hibbs was first found in Yorkshire 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.

Among the first immigrants of the name Hibbs, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were :
