The History of Ancient Windsor Vol II by Henry R. Stiles, Genealogies and
Biographies of Ancient Windsor - The Gibbs Family:
Gibbs (Gibbes), Giles, supp from Co. Devon, Eng., where the name is common;
freeman and grantee of lds. at Dorchester, 1633; selectman 1634; at Winsor,
early; bu. 21 May 1641 (this can't be right); his will directed that his eldest
son should be apprenticed to some godly man for 5 yrs., and to have the lot
over the Great River, if he faithfully served out his time; to his ch. Samuel,
Benjamin, and Sarah he gave L20 each; to Jacob, his house, home lots, and all
lots west of the River, after the demise of his mother; est. val L76, 18s. 8d.;
wid Katherine app. his ex'r she died 24 Oct 1660.

The Mary and John by Maude Pinney Kuhns.
Giles Gibbs was born in England, but was evidently not a Puritan before coming
to AMerica in 1630, as Giles is an English name and the Puritans gave their
children only biblical names. Giles first son, born in England, was also given
an English name, Gregory, whereas the later children, born of a second wife,
Katherine, all bear biblical names.
Giles Gibbs was an assessor, as shown by the following order (Early Dorchester
records) (see photocopy)
17 Apr 1635 it is granted, to Giles Gibbes to have 2 acres of medow ground
betwixt Mr. Thomas Stroughtons lott and the sandy poynt of the necke.
It is also ordered that the lott of medow that was Symon Hoytes, next to Boston
side, joyning to John Witchfield, shall be devided betwixt Mt ROdger Williams
and Gyles Gibbes.
Giles Gibbs removed to Windsor, CT where he became a member of the First
Congregational Church. The records of that church, kept by Matthew Grant, give
the date of his burial as 21 May 1641. His will, dated 18 May 1641, shows that
all his children were minors at that time. The will of Katherine, his widow,
written 1660, shows that Gregory was not her son, Katherine being Giles second
wife.

The Search for the Passengers of the Mary and John, 1630, Vol I.
Giles Gibbs came on the Mary and John in 1630 with his first wife and first
child. He first settled in Dorchester, MA, where his first wife probably died,
soon after 1630. He remarried soon after and began raising a second family.
It is believed he was not a Puritan because "Giles" is an English name and the
Puritans gave their children biblical names. His second wife may have been a
puritan because all of her children were given biblical names. In 1633 he was
ordered to build a fence for his cow in Dorchester. This fence marked the line
of an abbatis, erected during the seige of Boston in 1776 and it later became
the boundary of Boston Street. He later moved to Windsor, CT.
One child by his first wife (1628) (Giles Bulletin No. 5-39) and four by his
second wife, 23 grandchildren and 58 greatgrandchildren identified.
