In the late 1700s and early 1800s few persons, especially males, were given a middle name. Some were given middle initials that had no particular meaning. In one instance John Bobbitt is recorded as having the middle initial of "P". We think that the "P" meant Person, which was his mother's maiden name. In church records John is noted with the middle initial of "N". If we are interpreting the writing correctly, there is some confusion. I doubt that John had a middle name and he may have used one or more middle initials that he adopted on his own. It was not uncommon for people of this time to adopt two or three middle initials or middle names.

The Bobbitt lineage of John Bobbitt is:

William Bobbitt from Wales    1645 - 1703 Joanna Sturdivant 

William Bobbitt Junior   1675 - 1738 Mary Green 

Lewis Bobbitt Senior              1703 - 1769 Elizabeth Moore 

Lewis Bobbitt Junior              1742 - 1818 Mary Person 

John Bobbitt                          1789 - 1866 Nancy Huse (Hughes)


John Bobbitt born in 1789 in North Carolina, died May 1866 

Married in 1808 probably in Tennessee to Nancy Huse (Hughes) born in 1793 in Kentucky, died March 1871
