John Gibbs (also written Gibbes), the son of Gregory Gibbes and his first wife, was born in about 1600 in Dorsetshire, England. In 1619, John sailed from the port of Weymouth in Dorsetshire aboard the ship “Supply,” bound for the English Colony of Jamestown in Virginia. Having fortunately survived the massacre of Virginia colonists by Indians in 1622, John’s name was later found on a list of inhabitants which were residing at Jordan’s Journey. This list was dated 16 February 1623. Two years later, in 1625, John was commissioned a Lieutenant of Militia at Jordan’s Journey.
