CREBBIN - ISLE OF MAN & AUSTRALIA
CREBBIN - Variations to the spelling of Crebbin include: Crebbin, Crebben, Cribbin, Cribben, Crabbin, Crabben, Crabbing, Cubbin.
No Crebbin’s or variations of have been found in NSW until 1903. Nor in Tasmania between 1803-1899. There has been a book written about Crebbin’s coming to Australia and it listed the first Crebbin in Australia as having come on the first fleet as an Officer.
The Crebbin line I am researching begins with Thomas Crebbin who married Elizabeth Naomi White in 1874, in Victoria, Australia. However, Thomas came from the Isle of Man, UK.
Thomas and Elizabeth had 8 children and lived mostly in the Richmond area of Melbourne, Victoria. Their children were: Richard Crebbin (1874 – 1940), Emily Elizabeth Crebbin (b: 1876), Ada Annie Crebbin (b: 1878), Elizabeth Jane Crebbin (1880 – 1934), Thomas George Crebbin (b: 1882), Henry Crebbin (b: 1886), Allan Crebbin (1888 – 1889), Elsie Crebbin (b: 1889).
I would like to find out who Thomas’ parents were and what happened to all of his children.
