Re: Nobbs, Isle of Wight, UK
I just came across these Nobbs postings on the internet. I come from a direct line of the Nobbs family through my mother. Hopefully this information will be able to reach some of you, however, I do know this posting was back in 2006... anyways Frederick Nobbs (1860) was born in Isle of Wight and married to Sarah Anne Ringer. He had a son named Joseph Nobbs, who was always born in Isle of wight and later moved to Ontario Canada, where he married Ivy Bishop. Joseph & Ivy had their own farm and antique shop in the village of Markham, Ontario, Canada. Their house is now a museum in Markham because it is considered a heritage home. Joseph & Ivy had a family, three boys, out of the three boys is Henry Nobbs. Henry is my mother's father and my grandfather. My grandfather is still alive and if anyone has any questions about the Nobb's family let me know and I'll try my best to answer your questions!
