Ibbotts History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The ancestors of the Ibbotts family migrated to England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The surname Ibbotts is based on the Norman personal name Hildebert, which is composed of the Germanic elements hild, which meant battle or strife, and berht, which meant bright or famous. One of the first records of the name was Hygbert, the Anglo-Saxon bishop of Lichfield. [1]

Early Origins of the Ibbotts family

The surname Ibbotts was first found in Cheshire where the Hibberts of Marple and Boirtles claim descent from Paganus Hubert who accompanied Richard Coeur-de-Lion (Richard the Lion Hearted) in the Crusade of 1190. [1]

The Hibberts of Marples and Birtles in Cheshire claim descent from Hubert of Curzon in Calvados, a Norman noble who was granted land in Cheshire and also in Nottingham.

Migration of the Ibbotts family

The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Ibbotts arrived in North America very early: John Hibbitt who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1868; Catherine Hibbotts settled in Virginia in 1635; Daniel Hibbart settled in Philadelphia in 1856.
