Rev. George Nibbs

1765 - 1832


Rev. George Nibbs of Cutcombe, son and co-heir of James Langford Nibbs (q.v.) and beneficiary also under the will of James Nibbs of Upton House (q.v.).

  1. Nibbs, George, son of James Langford of Bettshanger Kent matriculated Oriel Oxford 18/10/1783 aged 18, BA 1787, vicar of Cutcombe with Luxborough Somerset 1791 until his death in 1832.

  2. Will of Rev. George Nibbs Clerk of Cutcombe proved 25/10/1832. The will is a litany of bequests of specific assets to his son and sole executor George Langford Nibbs, and includes no reference to property or enslaved people in Antigua. He thus appears to have disposed of his interests in slave-property between 1806 and 1834.
