Migration of the Knibs family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Knibs or a variant listed above: Thomas Knibb, who settled in Virginia in 1635; Danll Nibbs, who settled in Virginia in 1662; Samll Knib, who settled in Virginia in 1664; Richard Nibbs, who arrived in Carolina in 1684.
