I've looked in a surname dictionary to find the origin of Tibbett, and as you probably know there are many spelling variations. This is what it said - some early examples -John Tybote 1327, Stephen Tybet 1332, James Tibbett 1674.
May be diminutive of Tibb, from Tibaud (variant of Theobald).
Tibbe, Tybbe 1286, 1290. In the 13th century Tibbe was used as a pet name for both men and women from Isobel or Tibald (Theobald).
