Has ydna shown any proof of origin for the Bibber surname? Years ago when I was doing research on this family name, there was speculation that it was English, but then we found out it might have originally been German "Vibert" or something similar. I know that my earliest Bibber ancestor was said to have come to Maine via the English Chanel Isles...Jersey or Guernsey. However a lot of folks from various countries went there during turmoil times to escape troubles in their native lands, but that doesn't necessarily mean our Bibber's were English.
Thank you for any updates.
