DIBBEN, Cecilia J. 18?? — 19??. Britishwoman, apparently interested in Pāli. Her sister is perhaps Miss A. M. Dibben, who compiled the index to the first vol. of Buddhadatta’s manuals (L., P.T.S, 1915), rev. by C. A. F. Rhys Davids. In the Niddesa edition (vol. 1. L., P.T.S. 1916) the editors (La Vallée Poussin & E. J. Thomas) thank both A. M. and C. J. Dibben for collating a Burmese manuscript for it.
Publications: Assisted with others C. A. F. Rhys Davids in the edition of Yamaka. 1-2. L. 1911-13.
Sources: Not in Br. Biogr. Arch. 1st & 2nd Series; no further works in the N.U.C.; genealogical pages offer at least three English ladies of possible age called C.D., but nothing for identifying.
