Mabbott Early Origins



The surname Mabbott was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls year of 1379 when Mabota Ryder held estates in that shire. The same rolls listed Willelmus Mabotson and Willelmus Mabotsen [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Mabbott were among those contributors: Jane Mabbett settled in Virginia in 1657 probably with husband John spelled Mabett, same year; Gideon Mabbett settled Mississippi in 1854.
