Gibbs Surname History
The Gibbs have a long, long history that includes many Lords. The family has served all the Kings & Queens of England from William, Duke of Normandy, to Elizabeth the Second. There has been a Governor of the Bank of England, a Cardinal of France, a Lt Col who was in charge of the bodyguard of Washington. A Gibbs family member was also the last tutor of the Romanov Family.
The Gibbs surname first appeared in England at the Battle of Hastings - the name is recorded at Battle Abbey. The family were not Normans but Bretons. One of that line of the family became Cardinal of France in 1500. He is buried at the Vatican in Italy. The DNA shows the family to have moved up through Spain via North Africa (Carthaginians) who themselves were originally Pheonicians from Byblos (in Israel) where they were called Cananites.
