The Kibbey Family in Devon

This page lists those members of the Kibbey family whose origins we are researching. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, or have been supplied by other researchers and not personally verified by us. The list does not include children known to have died in infancy. Please contact Chris and Linda Warren if you feel that the family listed here is connected with your own research.

The Kibbeys we are researching lived in Tiverton in Devon, where many family members worked in the lace industry. The surname was also spelt Kibby in many records. The earliest confirmed record is the marriage of Benjamin Kibbey and Mary Hayman in Cullompton in 1756. We have found evidence of earlier generations in Tiverton but we have been unable to prove that they are connected. Children of Thomas Kibbey were baptised between 1729 and 1738, but we have not found Benjamin. This Thomas was probably born in 1706, the son of Thomas Kibbey and Susanna Rawley.

Some of the names below are linked to a more detailed record in the on-line family tree (people marked with an asterisk do not have a full record). When you click on a link, the linked record will be displayed in a separate window. There you can see the family relationships as we understand them, together with notes on what we have found in parish registers, census returns and other records. All the places named below are in Devon unless otherwise indicated.
