Belbin Family History

BelbinMania is primarily aimed at those of you researching your Belbin ancestors but also at those researching the many variant names, especially that of Belben, which until the early 18th century was interchangeable, rather than the separate name it has become.

Development of the site is an ongoing project and if you wish to make any contribution such as providing some ideas as to the origin of the name, passing on some Belbin family gossip or photographs, repeating family lore or submitting details of your Belbin ancestry, then please get in touch with me, Terry Belbin, as I will be pleased to hear from anyone if they can help improve and expand on knowledge of our Belbin ancestry.

I have more data offline than is currently online. My interest in the name is such that I am happy to discuss and share research about any Belbin family, whether it is from the UK or overseas. My accumulated research, which lies partially sorted in my office at home in England, may contain information you are looking for. You, on the other hand may have information, documents, old photographs, etc. that I would be very keen to see and perhaps publish here. Please get in touch and let’s see if we can help each other.

Thank you for visiting BelbinMania.
