Ibberson History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Ibberson is a name of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from the baptismal name 'Isabel' as in 'the son of Isabel.' [1]

Early Origins of the Ibberson family

The surname Ibberson was first found in Yorkshire, where they were an important north country family with a rich and unique history. By example, "Denton Park, the property of Sir Charles Ibbetson, Bart., lord of the manor, is a handsome mansion, built in 1760, and situated in a well-wooded park, overlooking the river Wharfe." [2]

The Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 included listings as a forename and surname in a wide variety of spellings: Johannes Ibotteson; Ibot Baker; Ibota Waferer; Robertus Ibbotson; and Matilda Ibot, doghter (daughter). [1]

John Ibotessone was found in Nottinghamshire in 1392. [3]

As one might suspect, the "son" was added at some point as the root of the name was indeed recorded earlier. Ybot and Ibbota were found in Yorkshire in 1286 and 1314, and in 1415 Roger Ybott was registered in London. [3]

Migration of the Ibberson family

Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Among the first immigrants of the name Ibberson, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were : Persival, Elizabeth and Anne Ibotson, who sailed to Virginia in 1623. Arthur William Ibbotson sailed to Philadelphia in 1852; Harvey Ibbotson to Philadelphia in 1854.



The Ibberson Motto +

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Vixi liber et moriar
Motto Translation: I have lived a freeman and will die one.
