The name Ibit originated with the Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled Britain. It is derived from the baptismal name Isabel.

Ibit Early Origins



The surname Ibit was first found in Yorkshire, where they were a major north country family. 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 wellwooded park, overlooking the river Wharfe."

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Ibit arrived in North America very early: 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.

Motto

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.
