Bibye was the great nephew and grandson in the title to Sir Edward Bibye Lake (1600-1674) who was a noted royalist and wounded at Edgehill.
He was an English lawyer and aristocrat. He was sub-governor of the African Company, and was created a baronet by Queen Anne in 1711.

Loggan married in 1663, and in 1665 they moved from London to Nuffield, Oxfordshire, to avoid the Great Plague epidemic. In 1669, Loggan was appointed 'public sculptor' to the University of Oxford. Then he proceeded to draw and engrave all the Oxford colleges in bird's-eye views. His folio Oxonia illustrata was published in 1675.

In the NPG is a line engraving of Bibye and Mary Lake taken in 1694 which is loosely based on this drawing by Loggan (NPG D31217)
