Henry Tibbetts and some of his Descendants by May (Tebbetts) Jarvis, San Diago, Calif., 1944, NEHGR Vol. 98 pgs. 57-61:
Henry Tibbetts, of ancient Dover, NH, (Dover Neck), the founder in America, of the Tebbetts (Tibbetts) family which forms the subject of this genealogy and the progenitor of the great majority of this surname who are of New England ancestry (whatever the various spellings of the name), was born in England in 1596 and came at the ae of 39 Years in the JAMES, which sailed from London 13 July 1635, accompanied by his wife ELIZABETH, aged 39, and to children Jeremiah ("Jeremy"), aged 4, Samuel aged 2, Rememberance, aged 28 (Henry's sister) (REGISTER, vol. 14, pg. 321). He died in Dover Neck in 1676, at the age of 80 years, having survived his wife Elizabeth several years. The statement has sometimes appeared in print that he had a second wife MARY, but this is an error.
The following brief probate record of his will is to be found in the New Hampshire Province Probate Records, Book 5, p. 18, on file in Concord: "1676 June 27 Will of Henry Tibbetts proved by Mrs. Judith Reyner. [She was probably the witness] Allow John Roberts an inventory of the estate. Lb. 207.05.00. Sworn to by John Roberts".
By some error the above probate record of the will of Henry Tibbetts, the immigrant, has been omitted from the printed volume, Probate Records of the Province of New Hampshire, vol.1, 1635 - 1717 , State Papers Series.
Where he first located is unknown. It was probably in Boston. He is said by Pope to have been a proprietor at Dover Neck in 1642. he settled at Dover Neck in 1643 where he was a farmer and shoemaker engaged in lumbering. He held various minor offices in the town.
