Lineage. — This patronymic is spelt in deeds of Henry
Vllth's time NyMet, Niblet, and also Niblett, as nowadays.
It has been conjectnred to have been a name of local oiigin,
derived from one or other of the three parishes or hamlets ia
CO. Gloucester called Nibley.

They were lords farmers under the Abbots of Gloucester of
the manor and demesne of Brockthrop, and were bound by
tenure to find a \icar, and to maintain him at their own
proper cost and charges, the vicarage being about a furlong
distant from the court-house, where they resided. John, the
father, and Andrew, his son, appear in succession as holding
under this tenure. Next we find another Andrew, inStandish,
of whom presently.

Dr. Stephen Niblett, forty years Warden of All Souls' Coll.
Oxford, and who d. 1776 (desciibed in the University Register
as son of John Niblett, of St. Martin's, Westminster, Gentle-
man), was supposed to be of the same family, and to have
sprang from Richard, 3rd son of .Andrew, of Standish. He
gives for his arms, as seen in the college chapel, sa., a serpent
rising in pale ppr. and in chief a cinquefoil or, between two
doves arg., beaked and membered gu.

Andrew Niblett, of Standish, co. Gloucester, m. 1581, Alice
Baily, and had five sons. The youngest,

Samuel Niblett, of Standish, b. 1594; m. Jane, dau. of
Robert Payne, of Colthrop, in Standish, by whom he left at
his decease, 1688, a son,

Samuel Niblett, of Standish, Gent., b. 1640; m. 1665, .\nne,
dau. of Anthony Rowles, of Great Haresfield, and by her (who
d. 1676) left at his decease, 1719, a son,

Daniel Niblett, of Haresfield, Gent., in. 1st, 1690, Judith,
dau. of John HoUiday, of Woodchester, co. Gloucester, by
