Origin of the surname “Dibble:”

 

Per a 1949 letter from Lynn Eugene Brown: “Our ancestors were English.  [They were] known as beansetters.  They used an instrument called a ‘Dibble,’ a sort of punch-like affair for setting beans. [It] looked something like a funnel.  They established that instrument as a symbol and their coat of arms.”
