In Reply to: Kebby of Broomfield, Somerset, England 17th century by SM White of 4

I too am related to Kebby's of Somerset. I have done some extensive research and can trace back to a Richard Kebby married to Joan Coalzare as a direct line of g-g-g-g grandparents. This brings me back to about mid 1700's. I believe that the Somerset Kebby's of Broomfield and surrounding towns and villages are all probably genetically related in some form or another -- brothers sisters to distant cousins etc. It is hard to plot the relationships though because there are so many repeat first names and I assume children are naming their children after their parents and so more than one grandchild will have the same name. As for the spelling Kebby - Kibby etc. I find the spellings vary. My family used Kebby. The Kebby's of Somerset also went to America as Colonists in 1636 aprrox. And there is a James Kebby who was sent to Australia as a convict in 1801. After he served his time he did get land and livestock and in 1853 sailed back to London with a wife, presumably to visit the family. I am interested in knowing your relationship to Kebby's and can you trace a direct line down to the present day? If might help me find link back further to the 1500's.
