Gilbert Genealogy & History

Gilbert genealogy originates with the Norman name of "Gislebert" or "Gillebert" (from the Germanic "gisil", meaning hostage or noble youth), and "berht" (bright or famous), and was brought to England in 1066. In the Middle Ages, Gilbert was a very popular given name in England (due in part to St. Gilbert of Sempringham, founder of the only native English monastic order) and consequently generated many surname variants, including Gylberte, Gislebert, Guilbert and Gilebert. The Gilbert family history in America starts in 1607 in Maine. Notable Gilberts include the dramatist, librettist, poet, and illustrator W. S. Gilbert and the engineer Barrie Gilbert.
