The founding heritage of the Kibe family is in the Anglo-Saxon culture that once dominated in Britain. The name Kibe comes from when one of the family worked as a person who made or sold cudgels, which were short, stout sticks used as weapons. The surname Kibe was also applied as a nickname to a person who was considered as stout and heavy.

Kibe Early Origins



The surname Kibe was first found in Middlesex 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.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland.
