One Name Study
|Time to pray?|
pages are recreated from the original K/NIBB/S One Name Study web site, in memory of Alan Jackson at the request of many
of the K/NIBB/S Family researchers who received so much help from Alan
over the years. His dedication to researching the many different
variations of the surname on a global basis, and the help always so
willingly given, will never be forgotten.
From all your fellow researchers, THANK YOU, ALAN!
Alan Charles Jackson, 1946-2012

The longcase clock (commonly called a grandfather clock) is a typical specimen of a fine KNIBB clock. Click on the KNIBB Family of Clockmakers to find out more about them.
Below is a portrait of The Rev. William KNIBB, the eminent Baptist missionary and emancipationist. He was, though white, the Martin Luther KING of his day, so passionately did he espouse the black man's cause. Click on his name to find out more about William KNIBB and his family.
|"Liberator of slaves"|
|"I here pledge myself, by all that is solemn and sacred never to rest satisfied, until I see my black brethren in the enjoyment of the same civil and religious liberties which I myself enjoy, and see them take a proper||stand in society as men". |
So declared William KNIBB on 1 Aug 1838 at a public meeting in Falmouth, Jamaica, the first day of freedom for the slaves in the British Colony and Empire.
|Having introduced you to the above luminaries, I must stress that the One Name Study is really about the thousands of K/NIBB/S who didn't hit the headlines. Some of the following pages tell their stories as well - see Contents for full details.|
Over 75 K/NIBB/S researchers participate in a friendly and informative Mailing List.
