Hello Paul.
According to some sources the Phibbs originated in England and two brothers came to Ireland at the end of the sixteenth century, they were soldiers and received a grant of land from the crown, William lived near Cork and Richard in Kilmainahm in Dublin.Many descendents of the latter obtained land in Co. Sligo.
I visited a grave in Glanworth, near Mitchelstown in Co Cork where the last member of the Phibbs from that parish is buried. I have had correspondence from a Mr. Tom Whibbs of Canada and I wonder have you been in contact with him.
my email is
Regards. Maureen
