GIBSON Family History

This notable surname is one of the patronymic forms of the popular medieval pet-name "Gib", itself a short form of the personal name "Gilbert", which was introduced into England by followers of William the Conqueror after the Norman Invasion of 1066. The Norman name was originally found as "Gislebert" or "Gillebert", and is composed of the Germanic elements "Gisil", meaning "hostage" or "noble youth", and "berht", meaning "bright" or "famous". Gilbert became a very popular given name in England during the Middle Ages, and generated a great number and variety of variant forms, such as: Gibson, Gibbs and Gipps, all meaning "son of Gib"...
