Recently several members from various parts of the North Carolina and Eastern Virginia Babb lineage have gathered via email and are working together to identify the details on the branch that have eluded many a researcher for decades.
At the Babb Family Association, we refer to the group collectively as the White Stags. The creature they are named after is often elusive and extremely rare. This describes the line perfectly.
We can tell through DNA research that they are all related, but early records in the area were lacking and we do not know exactly how they connect. As with all 3 of the core English Babb lines in the US, we do not have proof of where in England they come from.
If there are any other researchers from this line out there, please reach out to me by commenting on this article, and I will connect you to the group.
If you’d like to start your own group for any of the other branches, I’m happy to help facilitate those as well. There is more research needed than one person will ever be able to conduct. So, the more the merrier!

Thank you for all of your encouragement and research sharing you have done for years.
Did they originate from Thomas and Bathsheba Babb? I remember reading that I believe two of his sons moved to Virginia using a land grant from the King given to Thomas Babb (Old New Castle, De) in the late 1600’s.
