In England, in the Middle Ages, rhyming was often used as a device. 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.

Migration of the Hobbint family to the New World and Oceana
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Hobbints to arrive on North American shores: Thomas Hobin, who sailed to Barbados, Joane Hobbin, to Virginia in 1660; Peter Hobben to Philadelphia in 1754; Mary Hobbin to Boston in 1849; John Hobin to Philadelphia in 1859.
