Libbett is a name of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from the given name Isabel; Libbett 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 Libbett is a metonymic surname, which is derived from the name of the mother.

Libbett Early Origins



The surname Libbett 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.

Among the first immigrants of the name Libbett, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were : 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.
