Places in Connecticut connected with the Dibblees


This page refers only to my immediate ancestors, not other Dibbles or Dibblees.

Thomas Dibble (or Deebell as he signed himself) was born in England, probably in the West Country. He emmigrated to Dorchester, near Boston, in 1635, but almost immediately moved to Windsor, Connecticut. His family stayed in Connecticut for several generations, but were associated with several different towns.
