GIBBS Family HistoryThis name is one of the patronymic forms of the popular medieval pet name "Gib", itself a short form of the personal name "Gilbert", which was introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066. The Norman name was "Gislebert" or "Gillebert", composed of the Germanic elements "Gisil", meaning "hostage" or "noble youth", and "berht", meaning "bright" or "famous". Recordings from London Church Registers include the marriage of Agnes Gibbs and William Chanler on February 13th 1562, at Harrow on the Hill, and the marriage of Ann Gibbs and Thomas Fleetwood on April 2nd 1604, at Cranford. Gilbert became a very popular given name in England during the Middle Ages, and generated a great number and variety of variant forms, such as Gibson, Gibbs and Gipps, meaning "son of Gib"...
