Welcome to the Internet home of the 5robbins.   Our site includes family history of the Robbins family, plus added history and reflections of the much smaller world of the Robbins of Tupelo, Mississippi.

If you’re seeking the Robbins Family history, be sure to check our forum which covers our ancestors of hundreds of years ago and how they’ve spread to where they are today.

Many of the images are, of course, of my closest family and close ancestors, but would love any relatives, near or far, that have additional photos to please add them to the collection.
Just shoot me an email attachment and description to grayson@5robbins.com!

Origins of the Robbins Name

I would be the first to state that I am by far no means a genealogist.  However, with the technology of today, I find it intriguing to look back and investigate the origins from which I/we came.  I assume we all have this curiosity and offer my novice research those of with the mutual interest or of ancestry.  Anyway, that being stated, from what I have uncovered via the internet is my lineage goes back some twenty-two generations to before the “Dark Ages” of humanity.

Should, by chance this lineage be correct, then here are some interesting details regarding the Robbins family:

  • John Robbins appears to be the family member to bring our lineage to America.  He was born in 1581 in Long Buckby, Northamptonshire, UK, crossed the Atlantic with his family at some point (as his son was also born in the UK), and returned to the UK where he dies in 1622.  He would be considered my Great-(10) Grandfather.
  • His son, also a John was born in Long Buckby and died in Gloucester County, VA around 1655.  He would be considered my Great-(9) Grandfather.  He is the first observed family member to have taken the spelling of Robbins with two “b’s”.  Possibly, coming to a new world brought along with it a new name!
  • John’s son, Thomas had the title of “Dr.” and is the last ancestor using the spelling of “Robins”.  Why he reverted back to the previous spelling of our name is unknown.  However, from his children forward, the Robbins name has been unchanged.
  • Although there is conflicting information, it appears the spelling changed from Robyns in the late 1400’s, possibly after Edward, my Great-(14) Grandfather, born appx. in 1460.


This forum is for family, friends, or anyone interested in the Robbins family history.  Feel free to leave photos, links, details of long-lost family, ask questions, or whatever your heart desires.  Anything resembling spam, indecent, or junk posts will likely be blown away!

From my knowledge, it's just a small church and cemetery located in the Alabama countryside a few miles northwest of Alexander City, Alabama.

My father's boyhood "home place" is just a few miles down the road.   Childhood memories of this place go back fifty years as the annual "homecoming" of all the local families in the area, past and present, gathered here annually on a late Summer Sunday for fellowship and support of the cemetery grounds.  Plus, an awesome spread of down-home good ol' southern "bring a dish" dishes.

One colleague claimed that Helen Thomas’s aggressive questioning of Ronald Reagan had destroyed the tradition of presidents visiting the press section of Air Force One, while one of Gerald Ford’s press aides accused her of oversimplifying complex issues. On the other hand, there were many who applauded her for pushing presidents to explain their policies.
