Gibbs (Derry)

The Gibbs family of Cork city and Derry, county Cork, are possibly descended from Gibbes of Devon. Daniel Gibbes is mentioned by Smith as having made "very good improvements" at Derry in the mid 18th century. Daniel Gibbes married Frances daughter and co heiress of George Bennett, Alderman of Cork. They had two sons Daniel of Derry and the Reverend John. In 1778 Daniel married Mary Warren of Warrenscourt and they were the parents of John Bennett Gibbs and the Reverend Robert Warren Gibbs who married Maria Cross of Shandy Hall. The descendants of the Reverend John Gibbs of Inchigeelagh and Ballynora, county Cork, were living in Sheffield, Yorkshire, in the 1880s. At the time of Griffith's Valuation the Reverend Robert Gibbs owned land in the parish of Donaghmore, barony of East Muskerry, county Cork. The Gibbs are not recorded as owning land in the county in 1876.
