Hibbins or Hippy

Hibbins or Hippy

I have been researching Rutland, Northants, Lincs, Cambs and Hunts and have found this variation in the Parish Records. I would be willing to check my notes if I could help anyone in their research. My Grandmother was Sarah Jane Hibbins born 1887 at Stamford in the UK.

Graham, have you any details of Felix Hibbins anywhere in the UK? Any details would do on anyone with that name, but my main interest is about 1793 +- 100years.

Maxine, I am making a little progress and have I believe found the family on the 1851 census at Orton Longueville which has William aged 32, Elizabeth 27 born at Haddon and John aged 5 and Mary aged 3 born at Orton Waterville. Do you have a copy of their marriage certificate? as I cannot logically deduce an Irish connection. I am going to try to obtain the 3 parish records from the Family History Centre and will let you know the result in a month perhaps.

Gareth, I am sorry but I have looked through my notes and have not come across Felix before. I am a member of the Berkshire FHS and will ask them to do a surname search and will let you know if I am successful. I have not done any research into the Hibbins from London though.

Thanks Graham for your help with Felix.

By the way, have you visited Jon Hibbins website at www.hibbins.com. He has recently got married.

I have just chosen any message to reply to, but I am a Hibbins living in Australia.

My father was Mark William Hibbins, my grandparents were Alma and William. I have an aunt Margot.

All from the north of England.
I don't know much else as my father died 11 years ago and I have not researched as yet.

Is anyone familiar with this family?

I know this is ridiculous,so long after your orig message !
I too was born in Aust,and I am revising my knowledge of my English ancestry.My family came (comes ?) from Northants Rutland-Lincoln (1650 1950 ). Eustace and Jane ,about 1707,had a lot to do with our expansion, and Henry Hibbins and Mary came to Aust in 1851.I know there was a Hibbins family that came here about 1853 and eventually settled in Tumut--are you perhaps part of that group.
My great concern at this time is the wife of Eustace's grandson Robert,born 1753/4. My research tells me he married Ann,born1778,died 1852.She is reckoned to be the mother of Mary Ann, born 1790. mmmm! seems very doubtful.Do you have any info on this? Regards Ian H.(1927)
