I just stumbled across this site while looking for the Hibbard coat of arms and being a Hibbard living in Wiltshire am interested to read all the stuff about the Hibbards who came from Wiltshire in the 17th Century.

I haven't done any research into my family tree (although am beginning to think I should after reading all this!) but does any one have any info on Wiltshire Hibbards? I'm wondering if it would be possible to join up my family with those who left?

Hi Duncan, what are you doing with a Scottish christian name!

My line comes from Wiltshire and Berkshire.

Early Hibbard comes from Little Somerford in 1685.

My Grandfather came from Westbury, born 1874.

What have you got.

My private email address is, this will get a faster response.

Duncan I hope there may be a link.

Hi Duncan,

I just found your entry which interested me. My Great great grandfather was sent to Australia in 1832 and came from Wiltshire. According to his death certificate his father was William and mother was Ann and that is all I know at present. I have a man searching trials trying to find more.

Regards and all the best for 2007,

Hi Mauzie, I replied to Duncan too.

I have a William in Wiltshire and Berkshire and the only one I can trace back to is my G-G-G-Grandfather William b1754 in Berks.

His Grandfather Daniel had 4 boys born in Wiltshire in the early 1700's 1 was another Daniel his father, but his children were all born in Berkshire.

My email address in case I lose this favorite site again is

Hi folks,

John. 1797
Charles. 1802
Robert. 1806
Elizabeth 1808

I have a website

We started out as Hibbard 1720 but changed to Hibberd about 1820.
