The surname of DYBALL was of the baptismal group of surnames meaning 'the son of Theobald'. The name was brought into England in the wake of the Norman Invasion of 1086. When the coast of England was invaded by William The Conqueror in the year 1066, the Normans brought with them a store of French personal names, which soon, more or less, entirely replaced the traditional more varied Old English personal names, at least among the upper and middle classes. A century of so later, given names of the principal saints of the Christian church began to be used. It is from these two types of given name that the majority of the English patronymic surnames are derived and used to this day. Early records of the name mention Ralph Dibald who was documented in the year 1273 in the county of County Yorkshire. Edward Dibble appears in County Lancashire in 1300, and Richard Dippe of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Later instances of the name include John Dibble who married Sarah Wincote, St. George's, Hanover Square, London in 1761 and George Schleicher and Hannah Dyble were married in the same church in 1788. Sarah Deble, the servant of Mr Eddowes, was documented in London in the year 1729. The name has many variant spellings which include Dipple. Deeble, and Diable. The associated coat of arms is recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. (Diable, Dibble and Dible). The lion is the noblest of all wild beasts which is made to be the emblem of strength and valour, and is on that account the most frequently borne in Coat-Armour. It has long been a matter of doubt when the bearing of coats of arms first became hereditary and it was not until the Crusades that Heraldry came into general use. Men went into battle heavily armed and were difficult to recognise. It became the custom for them to adorn their helmets with distinctive crests, and to paint their shields with animals and the like. Coats of arms accompanied the development of surnames, becoming hereditary in the same way.
