MCKIBBEN Family History

Recorded in many spelling forms including MacGibbon, McGibbon, MacKibbon, McKibben, McKibbin, and sometimes as Gibbon, Gibben and Gibbin, this can only be described as being a surname of the British Isles. It is a patronymic and when recorded without the Gaelic Mac or Mc may be either of Scottish or English, but with the prefix is either Scottish or Irish. However spelt and from whatever part of the British Isles, the origin is still ultimately French. It derives from the pre 8th century Germanic personal name Gilbert, a name very popular with the Norman-French and carried by many members of the army of Duke William of Normany in the Invasion of England in 1066.
