Bobbitt Family Around The World

This is the place we refine, present documentary proof, sort out, and rewrite our Bobbitt family history.


Marsha Berry has researched and documented two Bobbitt lines.  Both lines have been DNA tested and proven.  The first line was her own and it also includes Stephen Bobbitt, Rosser Bobbitt, and Keith Bobbitt.  The second line includes Chird Bobbitt and William Bobbitt.

Thanks to Stephen Bobbitt we have a new DNA site at this address...

You may be able to compare DNA results by going to and clicking on the DNA link.
You may also be able to use this link to compare DNA results...

Our surname is Bobbitt but we are not members of the same family.  Today's genealogy requires we have a DNA test for genealogical purposes and that we share and compare our results.   We can not know our pedigree without a DNA test.  Our DNA test results must match our paper trail.  We can't have one without the other.

At the present time, this web site is programmed for IE browsers.  If you are using Google Chrome, you will need to use their IE tab extension.

Email from Marsha Berry, 6/4/2010

Hello Keith,
I need to send you this information as there may be an Irish Bobbett family looking for this information.
While I was working on Chird Bobbitt's genealogy several days ago I came across an Ireland Bobbett family.
On the Madden Surname web site or
Hi, Maybe I may be able to help you, I am researching my maternal family Bobbett of Co. Meath, Ireland.  I have two Madden ladies married into the Bobbett clan.
Anne Madden married John Bobbett on June 27th 1842.  They had one son William Bobbett and Anne Bobbett nee Madden died 1843/1844, Balbriggin, Co. Dublin.
2.  In 1904 Leonora Madden married Joseph S. Bobbett in St. Mary's Church, Haddington Road, Dublin.  Leonora was youngest daughter of John Madden of Oughterard, Co. Galway.  Joseph and Leonora have living relatives.  Leonora Bobbett nee Madden died Oct. 19th 1942.
If I can be of anymore help please contact me, at

Marsha Berry and husband George are one of the best research teams I have ever known.  The Bobbitt family and other families are very lucky to have found this team.  Associated with this team is Dr. Amy Harris and several of her students.  Eileen Sears is currently researching also.  The Bobbitt family owes all these people a big 'Thank You'.

Email from Marsha Berry to Keith Bobbitt

On Wednesday, 5 April 2006, I heard from Amy Harris and you may share this email with the others:   "Marsha:   Yes, I am just finishing my PhD at UC Berkeley and will graduate in May.  I begin teaching full time at BYU in the fall.  My dissertation was on eighteenth-century English siblings and I read a fair amount of probate documents.  Your Bobbett wills have also reminded me of a job I had while an undergrad at BYU transcribing 14th, 15th, and 16th century wills; it's quite enjoyable.   I leave today, but I have glanced at the wills and they appear pretty straight forward.  I will start on them next week.   Cheers, Amy"


DNA testing is now needed to verify Paper Trails.

Many Bobbitt genealogists have false Paper Trails.

We can not 'adopt' other people's Paper Trails.  If you have adopted another person's Paper Trail, in all likelihood, your trail is false.

If you have found all or part of your family in John W. Bobbitt's book "Bobbitt", it doesn't mean you are a member of that line.  It simply means you have found all or part of your family written in a book.  John's book contains people from more than one Bobbitt line.

You can not substitute William Bobbitt from Suffolk for William Bobbitt of Wales.  Won't work.
