There are various and many spellings of this name. "The same person will frequently use several varieties of spelling the name in the same document... Bobbett was a common family name in Suffolk and Devonshire in the middle ages in England... The land grant of William Bobbitt on October 27, 1673 spelled his name as "Bobbett". The land survey for his son, in 1706 in Prince George County, Virginia, spelled the name as "Bobbett" and as "Bobbitt" in the same document... In the 1700's and early 1800's the name was spelled the way it sounded. Frequently the person using the name, did not know how to spell it correctly, since he did not know how to write it." - John W.
