Ibbitson Family Genealogy Forum
I am an Ibbitson descendant: the family arrived from Kilburn North Yorkshire in Cumberland County, Nova Scotia abt 1820-1825. The parents were William and Frances (Thompson) Ibbitson: 6 of their offspring are documented in Canada (British North America then). I've found no record of the parents in Canada but believe they also came as the children were quite young. The eldest, my g'g'g'ggrandmother, joined Chapman relatives in the Sackville NB area. The rest of the family settled initially in the Shinimicas/Goose River area of Cumberland County, Nova Scotia not far across the border. Sarah was the granddaughter of the youngest in the family, James Ibbitson b 1809 who married Elizabeth "Betsy" Seaman. Her father Wentworth b1847 married Ellen (Hollis): Sarah was the 5th of their 8 children: I had no information on her other than her 1879 birthdate, so thank you for sharing your data here. My records of the Ibbitsons can be found here: http://www.gencircles.com/users/mlund/28
