There's a Wibbelstr. (street) in Münster.

The following farms existed in the Münsterland, the area surrounding Münster - just a few examples. Please search through this document for more information.…uensterland.pdf
  • Wibbeling (Wubbels) in the parish (Kirchspiel / Ksp.) of Heiden, Leblich neighborhood (Bauerschaft / Bsch.)
  • Wibbels, Hermann, same place
  • Wibbelt, parish of Holsterhausen

  • Wibbeling, parish of Reken, Groß Reken village
  • Wibbel, parish of Velen, Bsch. Waldvelen
  • Wibbelt, parish of Wulfen, Dorfbauerschaft
Another variation of the surname is Wibbelman(n).

Church registers of Münster-Überwasser back to 1616 are available on LDS films. Maybe you can visit a FamilySearch Center close to your home.
