New Discoveries In The Bobbitt Family In Early America

There Are At Least 4 Bobbitt Family Variations  In America

Information found in "Cavaliers and Pioneers Abstracts of Virginia Land Patients and Grants Volume 3" by Nell Marion Nugent and researched by Marsha Berry

Marsha Berry Research produces yet another Bobbitt Family genealogical Super Nova.

Not all Bobbitts (or variant spellings) in America are descended from the same immigrant ancestor.  Please have your DNA tested so we can learn more.  Every Bobbitt line in America needs to be tested, compared, matched, or not matched.

Listed here are 4 immigrants with the name Bobbitt found by Marsha Berry.  There may be more that haven't been discovered.

Which of the above listed immigrants is yours?  How many more Bobbitt immigrants traveled to America?  The four listed are early immigrants.  How many immigrated after 1706?  We don't know.  We need to focus our research on finding the descendants of these immigrants.
