The Bobbitt - Bobbet Family In England and America

This web site has evolved into a repository of research that has been reported to us in 2006 - 2007 - 2008.  New information has been found  by  genealogists  Marsha  Berry,  Dr.  Amy  Harris and students --  Bobbet British Researcher Kellie Scherbel and Center for Genealogy and Family History Newsletter Verification Specialist  Bradley Marchant -- British and Scandinavian Research Emphasis.

Updated May 7, 2008

If you are new to this web site, please get comfortable, pour yourself two or three cups of coffee, and be prepared to possibly re-write and make adjustments to your Family Tree software.  Also, find a Bobbitt male in your line and arrange to have him take a DNA test and to share the test results with the rest of the family for genealogy purposes.

The following statements have been proven true both with paper sources and/or DNA testing.  These statements are not listed in any particular order.

Not all Bobbitts in England are from the same family.

Not all Bobbitts in America are descended from the same immigrant ancestor.

There is more than one Bobbitt family line in America.

Bobbitts in America are not all from the same line.

New  generations  have  been  added  to  the  top  of  our family tree.

New 15th (1600s) and 16th (1700s) century Bobbitt immigrant ancestors to America have been found.

Prior to 2005 and to the present day, no sources have been found that proves an immigrant named William Bobbitt came from Wales in the 1600s.

Results of Sturdivant family DNA results show no Bobbitt ever in their family.

It is verified Isham Drury Bobbitt, Junior's ancestors came from eastern England in Suffolk County.

Burial of William Bobbet and his wife Elizabeth Bobbet was on the south side of Jones Hole Swamp, south of today's Carson, Surry County, Virginia, which is south of Templeton, Prince George County, Virginia. They were not buried in Ferry Chapel South of Petersburg, Bristol Parish, Prince George County, Virginia.

Your family tree MAY NOT BE THE SAME as those you will find on this web site.

Most Bobbitt pedigrees you find on the Internet will list a William Bobbitt from Wales.  This is probably not true.  There are no sources that support this.

 

I would love to read your comments about Bobbitt family research.  We have a special web site for this purpose.  It is titled "Bobbitt Family Online 2008".  It is very secure and is accessible by invitation only.

Reported on 01 Jan 2008 -- Bradley Marchant Finds Burial Date Of Our Earliest Ancestor

"Although you weren't looking for it specifically, I did find the burial date for William Bobbet (b. 1558).   It was not listed on your family group record so I decided to record it.   Below is a transcription of that burial for your ancestor William.
'Grundisburgh Parish Register Transcripts, Film # 991934 Page 14 ….   Wm. Bobbitt buryed the XXIIIJth of June Aop'd [1582]'
(Should be the 24th day of June 1582)" -- Bradley Marchant

"Today, 2 January 2008, I was looking through an old family group record for William Bobbet that my/our former Bobbet in Suffolk County, England researcher Kellie Scherbel used.   Kellie said nothing to me but she found the same burial record of 24 June 1582.

  This is documentation that proves no Bobbitt/Bobbet or variations thereof were buried in Wales until the late1800's to 1900's.

 "There are Bobbitt/Bobbet variation spellings in Cambridgeshire, Cardiff, Dorset, Essex, Kent, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Norfolk, Salop or Shropshire, Somerset, Suffolk, Warwickshire, and Yorkshire, but there is no Bobbitt/Bobbet or variations family buried in Wales in the 1500's to 1700's, but there is a Bobith family buried in Wales in the late 1800's to 1900's." - - Marsha Berry

If William Bobbitt - The Immigrant came from Wales, certainly his parents or some family member(s) would have been buried there.  I have yet to see any proven evidence that a William Bobbitt or variant spelling came from Wales in the 1600's. - - Keith Bobbitt

Dock Scene at a British Port.  1673 Painting by Jacob Knyff With Explanation and Sources.  Highly possible this is the ship "Martha" that sailed our immigrant William Bobbet to Virginia, America

Late 1673 and 1674 Immigration: Ship "Martha" sail to Virginia from London, England, stop in Wales.
Wm Bobett
Voyage Origin: Felixstowe, Suffolk, England to London, England
Voyage: London, England to Virginia

Jacob Knyff: 1638 - 1681.  Dock Scene at a British Port by Knyff Date 1673
Materials: Oil on canvas
Measurements: Painting 965.2 x 1270 mm

Description:
England and Dutch ships taking on stores or cargo at a port. The activities relating to
the loading has been closely observed. It has been set in a harbor, with the tower of a
gate and a quay visible on the right, and the coast in the distance on the left. An
England flagship is on the right, firing a salute and flying the ensign from the stern
carved with the royal coat of arms. Beside the quay is an English flyboat that, from her
shape, was probably Dutch-built. A royal yacht is arriving on the left and this has
prompted the firing of the salute. On the extreme left is the stern of a Dutch ship. On
the quay two bales of stores or goods with clear markings have been positioned in the
foreground. Men are involved in loading up small craft. a horse dragging a barrel on
skids to the water's edge and there are several groups of gentlemen and women
observing the activities. A guard stands outside a sentry box in the gate-way.

Bobbitts Linked To Bobbet, Bobbett, Babbitt and various other spellings.

 

Previous to 1992 and from 1992 until today, Bobbitt family genealogists have searched for Bobbitts in Wales to find ancestors of our immigrant William Bobbitt "of Wales".  None have been found.

Our family has been blessed with two authors of Bobbitt genealogy books the likes of which will probably never be seen again.  The amount of information found in the books written by Allen Wade Mount, Sr. and John William Bobbitt is very impressive and extremely useful to those of us trying to find and extend our family roots.  Both authors did what they could to lead us to our early ancestors. 

"Trips to Wales were made and letters were written but no information was found on the name Bobbitt or it's variants.  Glamorganshire was the primary center of the 'cross the pond' Bobbitt research. John William Bobbitt, his sister, and a cousin went there several years ago and met some Bobbitts in the area." --  Newsletter Producer/Historian Julie Bobbitt Vass  John hired a professional genealogist to do further research to no avail.

There is no documentation that proves William, our immigrant ancestor in America, was from Wales.  More recently,  Bobbitt  family  genealogists  have researched  documents  that  prove  William  lived  in  another  area  of the British Isles.

Marsha Berry, a Bobbitt family genealogist, published new information on her Rootsweb site that proved William, his father Willm, grandfather John, and great grandfather William were christened in churches located in Suffolk, England.

Marsha and her family knew nothing about books written by Allen Wade Mount and John W. Bobbitt.  Our family history would have been much more accurate if these authors had contacted Marsha's family prior to publishing their books.

William Bobbet
Christening: 12 Aug 1647 Saint Mary, Woodbridge, Suffolk, England

Father: William or Willm Bobbett b: 18 Oct 1610 in Campsea Ash,Suffolk,England
Mother: Mrs. Francisse Bobbett born in Suffolk,England

Wife:  Miss Whittington, daughter of William's neighbor, Mr. Francis Whittington, and his father spelled Mr. Francis Withington born/chr in West Bridgeford, England Wife born about 1652 living in Bristol Parish in City Point, Charles City County now Prince George County, Virginia, USA Elizabeth Whittington, daughter of William's adjacent neighbor Francis Whittington and his wife Effie Elizabeth Whittington Wife born 1652 Isle of Wight County, Virginia Source:  1860 Bible of Isham Drury Bobbitt Junior and his son William W. Bobbitt of old Caledonia near Magnolia, Putnam, Illinois plus other old Virginia records.

"My great grandmother Ida Belle Bobbitt Funk wrote: quote 'Because my 5th Great Grandfather William Bobbett was not a married young man who sailed from Felixstowe, Suffolk County, England and settled on the land granted him in late Oct 1673 near January 1674 adjacent to the Francis Whittington family in Citty Point, Charles City County, Virginia, it was love at first sight for William and the eldest Whittington daughter of Francis and Effie Elizabeth Whittington, and after a month's courtship it led to a Miss Whittington marrying William Bobbett would be most likely.  Back in William Bobbett's day it was very proper to call a young lady Miss instead of by their first name and last name like we do today.  Elizabeth Whittington, daughter of Francis and Effie Elizabeth Whittington, who was born 1652 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia, married my 5th Great Grandfather William Bobbett in late February 1674 in Citty Point, Charles City County, Virginia according to our 1860 Bible and other old Virginia records that belonged to my Grandfather Isham Drury Bobbitt Junior and my Father William W. Bobbitt.' unquote  

Please note that none of my family heard of a Sturdivant marrying our William Bobbett but the Whittington/Withington name has been written on family pages, particularly the 1860 Bible of my Great Grandmother Ida Belle Bobbitt Funk's Grandfather Isham Drury Bobbitt Junior and his son and my Great Grandmother Ida Belle Bobbitt Funk's Father William W. Bobbitt from old Caledonia near Magnolia, Putnam, Illinois and other old Virginia records.  Written beside William Bobbett's name is Miss Whittington on a family record.  The Whittington/Withington spelling of the name is both used.  Others in my family descended from and related to Isham Drury Bobbitt Junior and William W. Bobbitt have Bibles that has both the Bobbitt/Bobbett/Bobbet and the Whittington/Withington family within the pages.  

Also note:  According to The William and Mary Quarterly, Vol. 5, No. 4, April 1897, page 261: quote ....'The term "Mr." accorded to the immigrant, is indicative of social standing.'  This would also include "Miss."  

Another note:  The parents of my/our Elizabeth Whittington who married my/our Immigrant Ancestor William Bobbett, Francis and Effie Elizabeth Whittington, had a grandson John Whittington and his wife Mary that followed William Bobbet and Elizabeth Whittington Bobbitt's son John [of Chowan] Bobbitt [Marsha Berry's 7th Great Grandfather] to settle in North Carolina." - Marsha Berry

Fifth Documented Generation

Not all Bobbitts in America are descended from the same immigrant ancestor.

First things first –  do not be disturbed about the spelling of the Bobbitt family name.   You will find many different spellings in your research.   They are all of the same family… well, maybe.   Ancestry.com’s ship and immigration lists show many Bobbitts coming into America from different countries at different times.   Any one of these could be your immigrant ancestor.  

Do not assume your line leads to this line...



2. i. WILLIAM BOBBET, JR., b. 1675, Hopewell, Virginia; d. 1738, Probably Ferry Chapel Cemetery, Hopewell, VA.

3. ii. JOHN BOBBET, b. 1678, Hopewell, Virginia; d. 06 November 1736, Chowan Precinct North Carolina.

4. iii. JAMES BOBBET, b. 1680, Charles City Virginia; d. 1740, Halifax Virginia.



Research your line very carefully.  Children's names and birth dates must be exact.  A birth date that is off by one year or less may be a child in another line.

Microfilming of Parish Registers by the LDS (Mormon) Church

Most of the Parish Registers for England have been microfilmed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Consequently, the LDS church has become a tremendous research tool for genealogists and the microfilm copies of Parish Registers may be ordered from any branch Family History Library of the LDS church.

It's important that the record you find in your search is from the International Genealogical Index and that under "Messages"  the words Extracted birth or christening record for the locality listed in the record are present.

The word 'extracted' tells us the information was copied from original records.

If the word 'extracted' is absent from "Messages",  it means the record was sent in by 'anyone' and is not necessarily valid or true.
