Subject:        Theobald

I appeal to the collective wisdom of the list regarding the
pronunciation of the surname Theobald in the eighteenth century. When
Pope pillories the Shakespeare editor Lewis Theobald in his (first)
Dunciad, he calls his fictionalized character Tibbald. Was Theobald's
name commonly pronounced as though it were Tibbald?

If this is not of much interest to the list, I'd welcome private replies
