Lathan?? Bibbey??
« on: Sunday 04 November 18 03:59 GMT (UK) »
The 1891 census on Familysearch shows Lathan Bibbey, aged 23, footman of Kensington.
Should it say Nathan and is the surname correct?

Only birth using ‘similar sounding variations’ on surname and christian names 1868+-2 give each nothing for an L and one for Nathan:

BEEBY, NATHAN  BURNYEAT mmn BURNYEAT
GRO Reference: 1866  D Quarter in WHITEHAVEN  Volume 10B  Page 512

An interesting aside:

Nathan on the 1871: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V5BG-DHT

Parents of the above married in Australia:

1855 310 BEEBY Nathan to STUBBS Elizabeth

It is the correct family, as birth of first son in VIC:

1859 12607 BEEBY Wm parents names Nathan and Elizth (Burnyeat)

Thanks everyone. I did a Google search and apparently Lathan is a valid Christian name (and surname) and is reminiscent of Nathan. However, I cannot find any other reference to him as a Bibby.
If he's a Beeby then he's not my clan so I think I will ignore him.
