    • 1. Information taken from Sibley Family in America, by James Scarborough Sibley. C.1982.

      2. Ancestry, Life and Times of Hon Henry Hastings Sibley, LLD.
      Tradition vibrates somewhat as to the precise time when these two brothers first appeared in America. One account states that, "In the year 1637, John Hampden, Oliver Cromwell, and John Pym, and others, weary of the tyranny of Charles Rex and Archbishop Laud, determined to emigrate, in a body, from England to America, with the purpose of establishing themselves as the nucleus of a free community; but the king prohibited their embarkation. Among the many young men who were thus balked in their purpose were two Sibley brothers, natives of Middlesex county, Near London, John and Richard Sibley, who contrived to escape, however, and safely landed in that part of America then known as 'North Virginia,' but now as 'New England,' locating themselves in Salem, Essex county, Massachusetts. Both these brothers were unmarried. The date of their arrival is somewhat conjectural, one authority fixing it at 1614, another at 1620, still another at 1624; Derrick Sibley of Cincinnati saying his record is at 1632.
