In Reply to: origin of Ibbitson by Jessica Ibbitson of 58

The Ibbitson name originally was a derivitive of Is and this is from a book of the history of names. My Ibbitson family originated in Yorkshire England and this I had researched by a researcher. It seems the Ibbotson's were from a different area of Yorkshire, but the origin originally is anybody's guess and was probably from the people of Norway and Sweden who raided the English coast way back when, but this is just theory on my part. A lot of my family was baptised as Ibbotson, but then it seems later on they changed the name to Ibbitson. Myra
