Sibethrup is one of the many names that the Normans brought with them when they conquered England in 1066. The Sibethrup family lived in Nottinghamshire. Further research showed the name was derived from the Old Norse words sib, meaning victory, and thorp, meaning outlying farm or hamlet. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Sibethrup Early Origins



The surname Sibethrup was first found in Nottinghamshire at Sibthorpe, a parish in the union of Bingham. "In the reign of Edward II., Thomas de Sibthorpe founded a chantry in the church, and subsequently erected it into a college for a warden, nine chaplains, three clerks, and four choristers; he also added four chapels, in honour of St. Anne, St. Katharine, St. Margaret, and St. Mary." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
The family is conjecturally descended from a Norman noble, Fredegis, who held the lands of Sibetorp (Sibthorpe) from Count Alan. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Survey in 1086 Sibetorp consisted of a church and one and a quarter mills. In the graveyard of the church there were twenty Irish yew trees, which have gained fame throughout the years. "A Robert and William de Sibetorp occur in the Domesday [Book] of that county, and the name is found in connection with Sibthorpe down to the 14th century. " [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Sibethrup Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Sibetorp, Sibthorp, Sibthorpe, Sibethorp and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Because of the political and religious discontent in England, families began to migrate abroad in enormous numbers. Faced with persecution and starvation at home, the open frontiers and generally less oppressive social environment of the New World seemed tantalizing indeed to many English people. The trip was difficult, and not all made it unscathed, but many of those who did get to Canada and the United States made important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers with Sibethrup name or one of its variants: Christopher Sibthorpe and his wife Barbara, who settled in Pennsylvania in 1686; Ann Sibthorpe, who landed in America in 1771; and William Sibthorpe, who landed in America in 1756..

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Nil conscire sibi
Motto Translation: To have a conscience free from guilt.
