Origins Available: English, French


Lebbay is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from the given name Isabel; Lebbay is a pet form of that name. Isabel is itself a form of the very popular female personal name Elizabeth which developed in the French region of Provence. Thus, the name Lebbay is a metonymic surname, which is derived from the name of the mother.

Lebbay Early Origins



The surname Lebbay was first found in Yorkshire 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



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 Lebbay or a variant listed above: John Libby landed in Maine in 1630; and had eight sons, which contributed greatly to the large population of Libbys in the States; William, L. and Miss A. Libby all arrived in San Francisco in 1851..
