HOBBINS EXTENDED FAMILY WORLDWIDE
Posted by: CYRIL HOBBINS (ID *****1239) Date: October 02, 2004 at 02:13:38

As most of you know I am one of the Hobbins's still living in Warwickshire England UK.
After extensive research I have the strong conviction that ALL the Hobbins originate from one stock.

Why do I believe this? All of my searching to date puts every Hobbins recorded (prior to the end of the 18th Century) within a 100 mile radius of Birmingham England.
Mainly within the COUNTY of WARWICKSHIRE.

The earliest HOBBINS (HOBBENS HOBBYNS) recorded so far is one JULIAN HOBBYNS (Buried 1427 aged 68 years)that puts his birth at the end of the 12th Century. The entry is from the records of the GUILD OF STRATFORD-UPON-AVON (Yes! William Shakespeare's home town)

The Guild records go on to note the following:

William Hobbyns (wife Joan's burial 1491) Loxley Warwickshire.

Gwylnston Hobbyns STatford-Upon-Avon 1515

Thomas Hobbynns, (wife Alice) Stratford-Upon-Avon 1523

Sir John Hobbyns: Clifford (Chambers) a village just outside Stratford. 1524

These then are the oldest of our ancestors recorded to date, should any of you know any different please contact me.

My findings continue to show that ALL recorded Hobbins lived in and around Warwickshire. We seem to have spread far and wide during and after the Industrial Revolution.

Of great interest to me are the last few forum entries from Jim Hobbins. Many Hobbin's in the USA and Canada have originated from Ireland.

I had a theory that an English Redcoat soldier of the Hobbins clan married an Irish girl and the rest is history.

Admirably, James has followed up with further research of his own that seems to confirm my conjecture.

MESSAGE TO ALL HOBBINS'S

WITH MODERN TECHNOLOGY AT OUR FINGERTIPS, WHAT A GREAT OPPURTUNITY WE HAVE TO POOL ALL OF OUR FAMILY RECORDS IN ONE BIG BOOK? FORUM? ANY ONE HAVE ANY IDEA HOW IT CAN BE DONE. I AM CERTAIN THAT DIRECT LINKS WILL BE DISCOVERED.
IT GETS EASIER THE FURTHER BACK YOU CAN GO.

I AM CERTAIN THAT WE ALL STEM FROM ENGLISH (WARWICKSHIRE) ROOTS.

BEST WISHES TO ALL COUSINS.
