GUBBINS Family History

This unusual and interesting name has two possible origins, the first and most generally applicable being as a patronymic form of the medieval male given name Gibbin, itself a diminutive of Gibb, a common medieval pet form of the personal name Gilbert. This was a Norman personal name "Gislebert", introduced into England at the time of the Conquest (1066) and composed of the Germanic elements "gisil", meaning hostage or noble youth, and "Berht", bright, famous. The second possible source is from the Germanic personal name "Gebwine", composed of the elements "geba", gift and "wire" friend. In the modern idiom the surname can be found as "Gibbons", "Gibbens" and "Gubbins"...
