Gibbon Ancestors in the North-East of Scotland
At this writing, I cannot prove any blood connection to the Gibbon families in Aberdeen. The elusive link is the incidence of the Gibbon name in my great-aunt Margaret Gibbon Udall Brebner (1894-1974), and my great-great-aunt Margaret Gibbon Brebner (1854-1929). William Brebner (born c 1805) was a seaman in Aberdeen, and may well have been involved with the Gibbon families that had shipbuilding and ropeworks at the Aberdeen harbour.
The Gibbon family in Aberdeen were involved in a number of businesses with the Brebner family of Learney, including the Brebner Gibbon Brewery that was located on Virginia Street in Aberdeen during the first decade of the 19th century.
