Old Photograph Mcgibbon Pastry Shop Forfar Scotland
Old photograph of the Mcgibbon Pastry shop in Forfar, Angus, Scotland. Recorded in several spelling forms including: MacGibbon, McGibbon, MacKibbon, McKibbon and McKibbin, and sometimes as Gibbon, Gibben and Gibbin, without the prefix Mac or Mc at all, this is a Scottish surname of ancient origins. It derives from the Norman French name Gilbert itself of Germanic or Anglo Saxon pre 7th century origins, and it may have been the name of a Norman knight granted lands by the kings of Scotland in the 12th century.
