To the Members of the Stubbs Family: 

This little pamphlet is printed for private distribution only. 
copy will i3€ presented to each member of the family, with tne 
hope that after a close examination a report will be made of all 
errors, either of omission or commission, to the undersigned for 
correction in the next edition. 

The author is painfully aware of its imperfections, but it is the 
best that he could extort from the various branches of the family 
after the expenditure of much time and labor. On account of 
apathy and indifference, his letters of inquiry were frequently un- 
answered ; hence the incompleteness of several lines. His thanks 
are due, however, and are hereby tendered to several members for 
the valuable assistance given him. 

While conscious of the incompleteness of his work, the author 
is yet emboldened to publish what he has, realizing that the infor- 
mation contained herein is too valuable to be withheld from print. 
He hopes in the future to publish a revised and more comple- 
edition, and will do so at an early day if every member of 
family will assist in making the necessary corrections and am 

Whatever the merits of this little pamphlet may be, it is g --"- 
to the family with the modest hope that it may stimulate each and 
every member to nobler deeds and higher aspirations.

In writing of the Stubbs family every effort has been made Lo 
secure all the information possible, both in England and America. 
There is accordingly given, first, a chapter embodying "glean- 
ings" that have been gathered from various sources in England, 
mainly, however, from a delightful little volume, "The Lays and 
Leaves of the Forest" (of Knaresborough), by Rev. Thos. Parkin- 
son — whose mother was a Stubbs. 

The next chapter is devoted to the early settlers by the name 
of Stubbs in America, with their land grants, etc. 

The remainder of the pamphlet is devoted to the descendants 
of John Stubbs of Cappahosic, the earliest immigrant to Virginia 
(about 1652), w^ho is believed lo be the ancestor of all the South- 
ern Stubbses.

The Origin of the Family of Stubbs 

is by common consent located in the Forest of Knaresborough, 
Yorkshire, England. This Royal Forest of Knaresborough is a 
range of country about twenty miles in length and eight in width, 
diversified with mountain and moor, rocky eminences and fertile 
valleys, and extending from Knaresborough westward and south- 
westward to the heather-clad hills overlooking Bolton Abbey. 
Originally it was a wild and rugged district with rich, heavily- 
wooded valleys, and uplands covered with ferns and heathers, a 
place admirably adapted as a refuge for the superstitions of the 
old British and Saxon creeds. In mediaeval times it was sur- 
rounded by feudal strongholds and ecclesiastical establishments 
of the first magnitude. Later the lowlands were enclosed and cul- 
tivated, but wide, wild uncultivated tracts of great extent re- 
mained open and unclaimed until the end of the Eighteenth Cen- 
tury, when by Act of Parliament it was enclosed. 

Modern times have completely changed the original scenes, and 
to-day nothing remains of the Forest but its name. The town of 
Leeds has taken possession of the Washburn valley and trans- 
formed it into a chain of reservoirs to supply water to the city. 
An obscure hamlet has risen into a fashionable, world-famed town 
of Harrogate, where healing waters and bracing breezes attract 
the invalid from every clime. Eugene Aram, Blind Jack of 
Knaresborough and the famous Mother Shipton are some of the 
local characters and celebrities of this Forest. 

In this Forest originated many of the families whose names are 
familiar to us all. The Yorkshire Archaeological Society has re- 
cently published a roll for the whole countv of Yorkshire, taken 
from the rolls of the King's Exchequer of the names who paid a 
subsidy or tax to the King in the second year of King Richard II. 
(June, 1378, to June, 1379). The text is in Latin, but can be 
easily translated. In this list are many familiar names— some in 
their primitive spelling, indicating their origin. Here are some 
of them: Richard Wil-son (that is, Richard, the son of Wil) ; 
Thomas Atkyns-son, Adam Alice-son. Richard Nelle-son, Agnes 
Nelle-doghter, John de Beckwith, William del Hall, William del 
West. John Cowhird, Richard Carter, Richard Lyster (Lister, /'. e.,

Richard the Dyer), Agnes Parcour (the park keeper, now 
Parker), Richard Polayn (now Pullein, a forest name derivt'i 
from "Pullus," a colt given to the keeper of the Royal stud",. 
William Stubbe (the ancestor at an early date of the late illus- 
trious Right Rev. William Stubbs, Bishop of Oxford), William 
de Thakwra (a name made famous by his descendant William 
Makepeace Thackeray), Elias Moor-house, Richard Schiphird 
{i. e., Sheep-herd, now Shepard), Thomas del Holme (/. e., of the 
"holm"" or flat land by the water, now Holmes), Margaret Web- 
ster (a trade name, a weaver), Robert Fflesshewer (a flesh cutter 
or butcher, now Fletcher). 

Besides the above may be found the familiar names of Legitt, 
Hudson, Banks, Simpson, Swynton, Deen, Brewstir, Colyer, John- 
son. Robynson, Scott, Moss, Hill, Gyll, Neusom, Turpyn, Taillour, 
Young, Wright, Milner, Boiler, Bland and others. 

From a poem called "The Hunt," given in "The Lays and 
Leaves of the Forest"' (of Knaresborough), by the Rev. Thomas 
Parkinson, the following verses are selected: 

"John Jeffrey of 'The Trees' is there, 

And Stubbs of Whitewall Nook — 
Guy Palmes of Lindley th' sport to share 

Hath come o'er moor and brook." 

"But oft a root though hid away 

By shoot is not unknown, 
And Fairfax, Stubbs and Thackeray 

Are names the world doth own." 

The Stubbses were then foresters from the Royal Forest of 
Knaresborough. As before mentioned, in the subsidy roll of the 
second year of Richard H. (1378-1379), for the Villa de Clynt, 
occurs the entry, Willelmus .Stu])be et uxor : 

"The home of William Stubbe and his wife was at Birstwith, 
then included in Villa de Clynt." 

William was probably the first who bore the name of Stubbe. 
The name was not fixed fifty years afterward, as his grandsons 
were still called "dc Stubbe" or "Stubbes." The name is thought 
to be derived from "stob" or "stub," the root end of a broken tree. 
Such an object may have existed in the vicinity of the family 
residence, and hence the members would receive the designation 
"de," i. e., of Stubb or Stubbs. (See "Lay and Leaves of the For- 
est," by Rev. Thomas Parkinson.) 

The Yorkshire Archaeological Society's Journal mentions that 
"about 1350 A. D. flourished Thomas de Stubbes, or Stubs, who 
was born in Yorkshire and entered the order of Black Friars at 
York and became a Master of Theology. He was remarkable for 
ecclesiastical learning and religious life. He was ordained Priest

'.].'■■; I h is unknown. From his learned pen fourteen valuable works 

rom a sketch of the ancestry of the late Bishop William Stubbs 
Oxford, it appears that — 

"William Stubbe of 1379 A. D. Imd a son also named William, 
and his son, John de Stubbes, in 1430 was an ofBcer, — the Grave 
of the Forest of Knaresborough. John de Stubbes' son, William 
Stubbes, resided at Ripon, but John de Stubbes' property at Birst- 
with descended in 1442 to William's son Thomas. This Thomas 
was followed in succession by his son, also named Thomas, in 
1490. This second Thomas was also 'Grave of the Forest,' and 
therefore had probably returned to the residence at Birstwith in 
1498. His brother, William Stubbs, was chaplain in 15 16 to the 
Shepherd Lord Clifford of Skipton and Barden. Thomas Stubbs 
died in 1535, and his son and successor, Miles Stubbs, died in 
1555. Miles left two sons — William, the elder, married Alice 
Belton and went to reside at Fellisclift'e ; John, the other brother, 
also resided at same place. William of Felliscliffe died in 1575. 
His third son was Thomas Stubbs, who resided at Whitewall and 
died there in 1648, aged 75 years. Thomas the son of Thomas of 
Whitewall was connected by marriage with the Atkinsons, who 
held one of the principal farms under the Ingilby family of Ripley 
at Haverah Park, and between 1664 and 1672 he succeeded 
Thomas Atkinson there as tenant. His son, Thomas Stubbs, born 
1650, married Alice Simpson of Clint and died in 1716. 

"Though tenants on the farm of Haverah Park the family was 
of substantial yeoman rank, owning considerable property in the 
neighborhood. The eldest son of Thomas, and his successor on 
the farm, was John Stubbs, who had numerous descent. The 
fourth son of Thomas was Joseph Stubbs, who broke away from 
the family home and resided at Graystone Plain in Felliscliffe. 
He had three sons — Thomas, Joseph and William — who resided in 
London and from whom descended the Rev. Stewart Dixon 
Stuhbs, vicar of St. James's, Pentonville. Thomas Stubbs, the 
eldest son, born in 1735, removed to Ripley and thence he or his 
descendants successively to Boroughbridge and Knaresborough, 
where, in the last generation, the family occupied the position of 
Wise merchants, bankers and solicitors. At Knaresborough in 
1S25 the great-grandson of Thomas Stubbs of Ripley was born. 
Bishop William Stubbs, the subject of this article." 

-■ study of the pedigree of Bishop Stubbs will show many 

H: ches unaccounted for. It is suggested by one of our English 
•ns that a son of John, the son of Miles above, went to London 


The Descendants of John Stnbbs. 

and may be the progenitor of the John Stubbs who came early t - 
Virginia. In a recent letter to the writer from Rev. Charles Wil- 
liam Stubbs, D. D., Dean of Ely, given below, mention is made ( ' 
Stubbses in later times in Shropshire, Suffolk and London. 

In 1620 "Mr. Stubbs" bought of Mr. Thomas Maddox for £2^^ 
two shares in the Virginia Company of London. Mr. Stubbs was 
also member of the London Company in London in 1622 (Brown's 
Genesis of V. S., i^age 940). That a descendant of this Mr. 
Stubbs came to Virginia and settled is highly probable. 

In Burke's General Armory we fiind "Lawrence Stubbs and 
Richard Stubbs' (1525) arms in the chapel Balliol College, Ox- 
ford." (Vist. Oxon. 1574.) 

"Sa. on a chevron engrailed between in chief two lilies and in 
base a pheon ar. three leopards' faces az. a chief gu. charged 
with two keys saltirewise between as many trunks of trees erad- 
icated and couped or. pierced through with arrow of the second." 

The coat of arms as given by our English cousins is described 
as follows : 

"Field of shield azure, with bend in gold upon which are three 
buckles in sable. L^pon the field are stags' horns with an arrow 
head above them. The stag's head above is the same which Ed- 
ward I. of England used upon his coat of arms. 

The motto is Aequo adeste aninio (Be of just mind). 

Arms: Az. on a bend or. between three stag's horns pieroecl with 
arrows, three buckles sa. 
Crest: A stag's head. 
Motto : Aequo adeste aninio. Be ye ready with ^mruffled courage.

The following is a copy of letter received from Rev. Charles 
William Stubbs, D. D., Dean of Ely : 

"Deanery Ely, 24th Mar., '02. 

"My Dear Sir — There is little doubt, I think, that Knaresbor- 
ough Forest is the original home of the Stubbs, the village of 
Fewston and its neighborhood not far from the Harrogate 
being its centre. My grandfather, who at one time lived at New 
Hall, a substantial yeoman farmer and corn factor, close to Fews- 
ton, and the family may be traced back steadily to the time of 
Richard II., when William Stubbe, 1379, is found on the roll. In 
1430 his grandson, John de Stubbes, was "reeve" of the Forest of 
Knaresborough, so on down through the centuries, Johns, Wil- 
liams, Thomases, for the most part. There are Stubbses also in 
later times to be found in Shropshire, Suffolk and London. In 
this neighborhood one of the oldest of the Norman families, the 
Le Stranges, married an Alice Stubbs of Ledgeford, and I saw 
the other day over the old Inigo Jones gateway carved the arms 
of Sir Harmon Le Strange quartered with those of his wife. The 
Stubbs arms of course you know. The Stubbs type of build and 
face is, I fancy, very persistent. Bishop Stubbs and myself trace 
back to a common ancestor two centuries, but our friends have 
said there was a distinct family likeness, especially of coloring. 
The habit of blushing pretty late in life is a noticeable trait and 
one of which I at least do not choose to be asliamed. A son 
of the Shropshire stock whom I knew in Liverpool was possessed 
of the same physical heredity. 

"Historically I suppose we may be proud of Thomas the Do- 
minican Monk of York ; Historian Philip Stubbs, author of 
Anatomy and Malady; John Stubbs, the Puritan pamphleteer; 
George Stubbs, the great horse painter. 

"If I come to America again, as I may possibly do next winter, 
we must try to meet. I need hardly say that if you are in England 
I shall be glad to welcome you here. 

"Cousinly yours, 

"Charles W. Stubbs." 

10 The Descendants of John Stuhbs. 

Illustrious Members of the Family. 

Biographical dictionaries contain accounts of several Stubbses 
who have become famous. Allusion has already been made to 
Thomas the Dominican ]\Ionk ; to the late Right Rev. William 
Stubbs, D. D., LL. D., Bishop of Oxford; to the Rev. Charles 
W. Stubbs, D. D., Dean of Ely, and to Rev. Stewart Dixon 
Stubbs, D. D., Vicar of St. James. 

Another distinguished minister was John Stubbs, who, accord- 
ing to Fox's Journal, was a very zealous itinerant Quaker 
preacher. He traveled extensively in England, Scotland, Ireland, 
Wales and Holland. He was a man of great literary attainments 
and was one of those who out of thirty languages paved the way 
of "thee" and "thou" as the words with which to address a single 
person. He finally came to America with Fox, and seems never 
to have returned. 

In the legal and political world two distinguished representa- 
tives of the Stubbs family are found. 

First, John Stubbs, an English lawyer and Puritan, born 1540. 
He wrote a pamphlet against Queen Elizabeth's marriage with 
the Duke of Anjou, entitled "The Discovery of a Gaping Gulf 
Wherein England is Like to be Swallowed by Another French 
Marriage," and was condemned to lose his right hand. The sen- 
tence was carried out and the intrepid lawyer raised his cap with 
the other hand and said, "God save the Queen." 

Second, Henry Stubbs was a great English scholar and writer, 
born in 163 1, in Lincolnshire. He joined the party of Cromwell 
during the civil war and wrote "A Vindication of Sir Harry 
Vane," "Light Shining Out of Darkness," and other works. After 
the .restoration he went over to the royalists and published numer- 
ous attacks upon his former friends. He was accidentally drowned 
in 1676. 

George Stubbs, born 1724 in Liverpool, was a very distin- 
guished painter. Possessed of an extensive knowledge of anat- 
omy, he excelled in delineating animals, particularly horses. He 
published in 1766 a treatise on "The Anatomy of the Horse." His 
picture of the "Grosvenor Hunt" is esteemed a masterpiece. He 
died in 1806. 

But the most distinguished member of the family, past or pres- 
ent, was the great prelate and historian, to whom frequent men- 
tion has already been made. Bishop William Stubbs of Oxford, 
whose death recently occurred. Born at Knaresborough in 1825 
and educated at Christ Church, Oxford, he became a fellow of 
Trinity and was ordained in 1848. He became Regius Professor 
of History at Oxford in 1866, Bishop of Chester in 1884. and 

Illustrious Members of the Family. ii 

Bishop of Oxford in 1888. He was author of many works. His 
work, "The Constitutional History of England," is acknowledged 
the world over as a standard authority. He was nominated on 
behalf of the Crown in 1879 by the late Earl of Beaconsfield to 
the canonry. The graceful act on the part of the Premier was 
received by all parties with much favor as the recognition of great 
erudition and untiring industry, and merited the encomium of 
the "Review" as being equally to the honor "of him who gave and 
him who took." 

Bishop Stubbs married, 1859, Catherine Dellar of Naverstock 
and had issue : 

(i) William Walter, b. 1866, now Assistant Master at Dal- 
wich College; (2) Launcelot Henlock Ascough, b. 1869; 
(3) Lawrence Morley, b. 1874; (4) Wilfred Thomas, b. 
1875; (5) Reginald Edward, b. 1876; (6) Katherine Isa- 
bella, b. 1863. 


Immigratiox to America. 

Mention has already been made of the purchase by ^Ir. Stubbs 
of Mr. Thomas Maddox for £25 two shares of the Virginia 
Company of London, Nov. 13th, 1620. He was also a member 
of the London Company in 1622. Probably John, the son of this 
man, settled in Virginia, as the old court records show a John 
Stubbs in \lrginia in 1671. It is highly probable that John pat- 
ented lands in Virginia as early as 1652, since we find on the 
land books at Richmond that John repatented 300 acres, patented 
by William Roberts in 1652 and subsequently escheated to the 
commonwealth. In this patent, given below, this land adjoined 
the lands of said Stubbs, because in "its metes and bounds" it 
mentions one of them as the said "Stubbs spring." It is believed 
that this John or his father patented before this a large tract ad- 
joining this (Roberts') tract, since he was possessed later of a 
large area. He also, in 1706, obtained the escheated lands of 
Christopher Webster, 150 acres. In 1703 he patents 50 acres 
(i head right) betwixt the lands of Augustine Warner, Mr. 
Woll and William Boiling, in another part of the county, now a 
part of W^hite Marsh ("Stubbs"). The records of Gloucester 
county, \'irginia, were destroyed in 1820 and again during the 
late civil war, and hence the absence of valuable information con- 
cerning the early settlers of this county. The land books at 
Richmond and the records of Petsworth and Abingdon Churches 
in Gloucester county are the chief sources of information at this 
early date. 

Here are the copies of the patents from the land books at Rich- 
mond : 

"In 1652 William Roberts patents 300 acres of land on the N. 
side of York River and N. W. side and at ye mouth of Jones 
Creek, bounded as follows : South up Jones Creek, east upon a 
white marsh, north upon the lands of Ed. West upon York River." 
(V^ol. X.. page 214.) 

This land was escheated to the commonwealth and in 1714 
John Stul^lis repatented it, and it is thus described on the Land 

Land Patents. 13 

Book, Vol. X., page 537: "In Petso (Petswortli) parish, Glou- 
cester county, Virginia, beginning on Jones Creek and running 
along a gut, and thence on south side to the mouth of said gut, 
and thence N. W. to an ash tree, and thence to a holly bush in a 
white marsh, and thence N. 80° to a small pine and hickory stand- 
ing near the branch, and on, crossing the head of Fleming's little 
creek, and then N. E. 74 poles, etc., to the marsh of said creek, 
and thence south near to the said Stitbbs' spring, and thence S. 
to York River, and thence down the river 104 poles to the begin- 

This land adjoined the land upon which the original home of 
John Stubbs was located, and since all of this section was patented 
about 1652, soon after the opening of the county to settlers, it is 
highly probable that John Stul)bs originally patented his home 
tract about the same time that William Roberts did the escheated 

In 1703 John Stubbs patents 50 acres ( i Head right, John 
Maytor) in Abingdon parish, Gloucester county, Virginia, be- 
twixt the lands of Augustine Warner, Mr. Woll and Wm. Boiling. 
Vol. IX., page 535. 

In 1702 John Stubbs patents 150 acres, viz. : "Christopher Web- 
ster's escheated land as per William Jones, deputy of Mathew 
Pope, escheator of same county, and a jury sworn before him for 
that purpose, 15th May, 1701, John Stubbs, of County of Glou- 
cester, hath made composition, etc., this 25th May, 1702. ffr. 
Nicholson, Gov." 

These lands were situated on York River and Jones Creek, and 
included the Cappahosic tract, together with "Valley Front" and 
"Concord" (formerly Mulberry Hall), now owned by the writer. 
John Stubbs "the younger," in 1786, sold Cappahosic out of the 
family. It was repurchased by the father of the author in 1852, 
and by him sold in 1868. "Valley Front" and "Concord," parts of 
the original tract, are still held in the family. At "Valley Front" 
is situated the old home, and here, too, is the burying ground of 
ihe Stubbses. 

In the old General Court records of Virginia occurs a suit in 
1 67 1 between John Stubbs and Richard Moore, with""Lawfence 
Smith and Richard Booker appointed by court to adjust the dif- 

In the York records in 1672 is a suit of John Stubbs vs. 
William Gilbert. 

In 1698-99 and '02 the names of John and Richard Stubbs occur 
several times. 

14 TJie Descendants of John Stubbs. 

In 1702 Richard Stubbs was arrested by John Young for debt, 
and, said Young not prosecuting, was discharged. This is the 
last time that his name is found in Virginia. 

It may be mentioned here that in 1704 a Richard Stubbs is 
among the petitioners for a court in the precinct of Neckham, in 
County of Bath, North CaroHna (N. C. H. & G. Reg., Vol. I., No. 
3, page 162). It is almost certain that this Richard moved from 
Gloucester county, Virginia, to Bath county, North Carolina, and 
became the ancestor of all of the North and South Carolina 
Stubbses, as will be shown later. 

. From the Abingdon parish record the following are taken : 

"Sus [anna] dau. of John and Susannah Stubbs, b. Aug. ye

Stubbses in Pennsylvania, 

Allusion has been made to John Stubbs, a distinguished Quaker 
preacher, who came to America with Fox and seems never to have 
returned. This was 1 671 -1673. Whether this John was the an- 
cestor or a relative of the Thomas who married, in 1721, Mary 
Minor, in Chester county, Pennsylvania, is unknown to the writer. 
They were both Quakers. Hon Jesse Stubbs, at a reunion of the 
Stubbs family in West Elkton, Ohio, August 28th, 1895, gave 
the genealogy of the descendants of this couple. He claims that 
this Thomas (died 1763) came from England to America in 17 18; 
that he married, in Chester county. Pa., Mary Minor (who was 
from Ireland though of English parents) in September, 1721. 
They had nine children, viz. : Daniel, Esther, Thomas. John, Jo- 
seph, !Mary, Elizabeth, Sarah and Ann. The descendants of these 
children are now found scattered all over the Union. 

John, the fourth child, moved from Pennsylvania to North 
Carolina in 1755, and married Esther Maddocks (also of Penn- 
sylvania), daughter of Joseph Maddocks, in 1757 or 1758. To 
this couple were born fourteen children, six of whom were born in 
North Carolina, viz. : Nathan, Isaac, Jolin, Mary, Samuel and 
Esther. In 1768 they removed to Georgia, about thirty miles 
from Augusta, where the rest of their children were born, viz. : 
Hannah, Joseph, Rachel, Thomas, Deborah, Sarah, Jesse and Wil- 
liam. John died December 27th, 1803, and Esther ^Maddocks 
Stubbs in 1786, both in Georgia. All of the children (except one, 
Sarah, who died young,) married in Georgia. After the death of 
their father they all moved to Ohio (1804 or 1805) and settled in 
the southwestern part, along and near Elk Creek, and all lived 
until 1828. The descendants of John Stubbs are widely scattered 
throughout the West and Northwest and are thought to be greater 
in number than those of his brothers and sisters. His total num-- 
ber of grandchildren were ninety-two, great-grandchildren nearly 
500, and great-great-grandchildren will probably reach 1,500 or 
2,000. (This was in 1895.) 

In a letter from Hon. Lewis D. Stubbs of Richmond, Indiana, 
he savs : 

Sfiibbses of Pennsylvania. ly 

"Samuel (above), bom May loth, 1766, died July 28th, 1846, 
was my grandfather, and he marrir,'d, January 5th, 1791, Mary 
Jones. The issue of this union was ten children, of whom my 
father (born November 13th, 1807,) was the only survivor. He 
married also a Jones who came from Georgia. One of my broth- 
ers was a member of the Eleventh Ohio Volunteer Infantry dur- 
ing the war between the States, first as sergeant, then captain of 
his company, and finally rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel; 
was at Chickamauga. Atlanta, etc. Joel Cloud of Georgia mar- 
ried one of my grandfather's sisters, and I have often heard from 
my grandfather of his brothers and sisters, that all fheir relatives 
had moved away from the South except one Joel Cloud, who lived 
near Wrightsboro, Ga. One or more brothers of John Stubbs 
went to Xorth Carolina and afterward to Georgia, as I under- 
stand, about the same time that John went, but their descendants 
also moved to Ohio about 1804 or 1805 and lived near Mount 
Pleasant. There are a number of the Stubbs family living in 
Lancaster county. Pa. They are farmers and in possession of 
large estates. Some of them are prominent citizens and have oc- 
cupied important positions."

"My father, an only son, was born in the city of Middleton.

lecting information for a history and i;^enealog-y of the descendants 
of Thomas and Mary Minor. This branch of the Stubbs familv 
in America will, therefore, be dismissed with the above brief re- 
cital, given to explain who were those Stubbses whose names are 
so frequently found in the early records of Georgia. 


Stubbs Family of Virginia and the South. 

Although it is believed that a son of the Mr. Stubbs who 
bought of Mr. Thomas Macldox the two shares of the Virginia 
Company in 1620, settled in Virginia about 1652, there are no 
official records known to prove it. The first official record oc- 
curs in 1671. From that time on the name of John Stubbs occuis 
frequently in the court records, land books and church registers. 

Our official records of births begin in the Abingdon parish regi- 
ter in 1678, with Sus [anna], the daughter of John and Susannah 
Stubbs. After this date occur in records the names of Richard, 
Thomas, John and Francis Stubbs, presumably the sons of John 
and Susannah Stubbs. 

Richard apparently left the State in 1703 and probably went to 
Bath county. North Carolina (see page 20). 

Thomas signs the protest, with others, in the vestry book of 
Petsworth parish, against transubstantiation in 1714, was Sherifit' 
of Gloucester county in 1735, member of vestry of Petsworth from 
1745 to his .death, in 1762. 

John (afterward Captain) was a member of the vestry of Pets- 
worth from 1748 to his death, in 1760. 

Francis was processioner in Second precinct in 1741 and mem- 
ber of the vestry of Petsworth from 1753 to his death, in 1767. 

The Petsworth vestry book mentions the death of John Stubbs 
in 1 719. It is iDelieved that he was the husband of Susannah and 
father of the four boys given above, and the ancestor of all of 
the Stubbses of the South. By being called John, Jr., in 1701, ii 
is probable that he was the son of John the immigrant and per- 
haps the grandson of the shareholder in the London Company 
( 1620-1622). 


Mention has already been made of Richard Stubbs, the son of 
John and Susannah Stubbs. This Richard appears in the York 
records between 1698 and 1702 as plaintiff and defendant in sev- 
eral suits. In the latter year John Young has him arrested for 
debt, and, failing to prosecute at the time, the said Richard is

discharged. His name does not occur subsequently in the Vir- 
ginia records. 

In 1704 Richard Stubbs was among the petitioners for a court i^^ 
the precinct of Neckham, in the County of Bath, North Carolina.

The will of Thomas Stubbs. dated January 17th. 1738. proved 
March 7th, 1738. mentions sons William, Thomas, Bassett ( ?) 
(Everitt), John and Richard, and daughters Hannah and Mary. 
(N. C. H. & G. Reg.) This Thomas Stubbs evidently married 
Mary Everitt, as per following deeds : 

Thomas .Stubbs and wife Mary, April I4t'h, 1722, a conveyance 
to Nathaniel Everitt, 100 acres land near Morattucks bridge, ad- 
joining lands of Benjamin Blount. Witnesses, William Rodes 
and Cornelius Callahan. 

Nath. Everitt to Thomas Stubbs, a conveyance of same land, 
with same witnesses. (Chowan Countv Deeds, Book C, No. i, 
in N. C. H. & G. R., Vol. H., page 144.') 

The will of Richard Stubbs, Jr., of Tyrrell county, N. C, 
February 25th, 1754, mentions brothers Everitt, William, Thomas 
and John ; Ann Jones, sister Mary and my two other sisters ; 
brothers Thomas and Everitt, executors ; testators, Esther Walker 
and Mary Stubbs. (Vol. L, No. 4, page 486, N. C. H. & G. R.)

to John Stubbs, son of James Stubbs o'f Bath county. 

William Stubbs and Jean CuUen were married December. 1733, 
in St. Thomas parish, Beaufort precinct. 

From the above, taken from the North Carolina records as 
given in North Carolina Historical and Genealogical Register, it 
would appear that Richard had at least two sons, Thomas and 

(I.) Thomas married Mary Everitt and had 

Stnbbses of North Carolina. 21 

(i) William, (2) Thomas, (3) Everitt, (4) John and (5) 
Richard (d. 1754, s. p.), and (6, 7 and 8) three daugh- 
ters, one probably born after death of father, 
(i) William married, 1733, Jean Cullen and had William 

and Margaret. 
(2) Thomas occurs in the records of Tyrrell county in an 

affidavit against the tory, Thomas Harrison, July 14th, 

1777, and may be the Thomas above, son of Thomas. 
Nothing is known of Everitt and John, though the occurrence 

to-day of the name of Everitt in one of the Georgia 

branches of the Stubbs family would suggest a descent 

from Everitt. 

(II.) James, the second son of Richard, had at least one son, 
John, living in 1760. Probably this John, or John the son of 
Thomas, obtained, in November, 1753. a grant of land on Cat- 
fish Creek, Peedee River. South Carolina, who, according to 
Bishop Gregg's History of South Carolina, was the ancestor 
of all the Stubbses since known in the Marlboro district, South 

Hon. Harry W. Stubbs, State Senator, of Williamston, Martin 
county, N. C, writes that his father was Jesse Rolin Stubbs, who 
married, March 3d, 1868, Mary W. Badham, in Chowan county; 
that Jesse was the only son of Martin Stubbs of Bath and moved 
to Martin county in 1857 or 1858. 

The above information is given with the hope that it may stim- 
ulate some one in North Carolina to continue these investigations. 


Bishop Gregg, in his "History of the Old Cheraws," says: 
"John Stubbs, November, 1753, obtained a grant of land on Cat- 
fish Creek, Peedee River, and was the ancestor of the Stubbses 
since known in the Marlboro district." 

This John came from North Carolina and is believed to be a son 
of James of Bath county and grandson of Richard who went to 
North Carolina from Virginia, 1703, and who was a son of John 
and Susannah Stubbs of Gloucester county, Va. 

Rev. J. A. W. Thomas, in his History of Marlboro county. S. C,

Descendants of Thomas and Mildred Stnbbs. 

Allusion has already been made to Richard, Thomas, John and 
Francis as the probable sons of John, (d. 1719) and Susannah 
Stuhbs, of Gloucester county, Virginia. The descendants of 
Richard, as far as known, have been given. Thomas, the next- 
brother, married Mildred, presumably a Smith, since the name of 
Smith has been quite common among his descendants. At "Point 
Lookout," in Robins' Neck, Gloucester county, Virginia, the ola 
burying ground of the Robins, occurs the following epitaphs : 

"Jn memory of Frances Robins, daughter of Thomas and Mil- 
dred Stubbs, born 14th February, 1745, died 18th July, 1800." 

"Tn memory of Thomas Robins, son of William and Elizabeth 
Robins, born ist February, 1745. died 8th November, i!

Robins (1782), probated 1786, in which are mentioned the chil- 
dren of said union. As far as is known Thomas (d. 1762) and

Georgia Stubbses. 

James and Peter Stuhbs, believed to be brothers, went to Geor- 
gia from Virginia, the one before and the other after the Revo- 
lutionary war. They are believed to be the sons of Francis, the 
son of John and Susannah Stubbs, previously mentioned as living 
in Gloucester county, Va. It is probable that Benjamin and Allen 
of the Revolution were either the sons of Francis or Thomas, and 
that the Thomas of Washington and Wilkinson counties, Ga., 
given further on, was a son of Benjamin. No descendants of 
Allen are known. 

James Stubbs was in the Georgia line during the Revolution 
(Smith's Story of Georgia) and is believed to have moved to 
Georgia circa 1770. He married, circa 1770, Mary Eliza Scott, 
daughter of Col. James and Frances (Collier) Scott of Prince 
Edward county, Va., who moved to South Carolina in 1770, and 
died in 1776. (vScott Family Tree.) 

Col. James Scott was son of Col. Thomas Scott, the immigrant 
who married Ann Baytop, sister of Col. James Baytop, of Spring- 
field, Gloucester county, Virginia, and daughter of Thomas and 
(Alexander) Baytop. 

Col. James and Frances (Collier) Scott are the ancestors, also, 
of the McGehees and Scotts throughout the South. 

The issue of James and Mary Eliza (Scott) Stubbs (as far as 
known) are as follows : 

I. Ann, eldest daughter of James and Mary Eliza (Scott) 
Stubbs (b. 1771), married, 1802, second wife (first .wife Miss

Peter, born June ist, 1744, in Virginia, died 1821 in Putnam 
county, Ga. ; married, 1776, widow of Louis Tyler, nee Mary 
Baradall Palmer (d. 1804). The following has been furnished by 
Hon. Lyon G. Tyler, President of William and Mary College, and 
son of John Tyler, President of the United States : 

(i) John Tyler (d. 1773), married Anne Contesse, daugh- 
ter of Dr. Louis Contesse, and had : 

(a) John (Governor of Virginia), who was father of 
President Tyler. 

(b) Lewis (d. 1775), married Mary Baradall Palmer. 

(2) Mary (d. 1789), married, 1745, Rev. William Preston 
(b. 1719, d. 1778). 

(3) Edith, married Rev. Thomas Robinson. 

(4) Joanna, married Dr. Kenneth McKenzie. 

(5) Elizabeth Lowe, married, first, Bowcock (d. 1746) ; 
married, second (1753), John Palmer (d. 1760), a lawyer 
and bursar of William and Mary College, Virginia. 

In 1775 Governor John Tyler advertised sale of brick house, 
near Capitol, belonging to daughters of late John Palmer. Lewis 
Tyler was a lawyer and lived in Charlotte county at "Red Hill," 
afterwards the home of Patrick Henry. From above it appears 
that Lewis Tyler married his cousin, Mary Baradall Palmer, 
daughter of his Aunt Elizabeth Lowe Tyler. It is probable that 
the mother of John Palmer was a Baradall. 

The following is taken from the Cliarlotte county (Va.) 
records : 

Will of Lewis Tyler. — I, Lewis Tyler, of Charlotte county, 
very low and weak though in perfect senses, do make my last will 
and testament. Item : My will and desire is that the land I pur- 
chased upon Turnip Creek to be sold to relieve my securities of 
the said land, which land was purchased of John Rogers and 
Robert Caldwell, which was the property of Robert Daugherty. 
The residue of my estate, after my debts are paid, I give and 
bequeath unto my wife, Mary Baradall Tyler. I leave my brother 
John Tyler, Richard M. Booker and Peter Stubbs executors.

Peter, after marrying the Widow Tyler, moved from Virginia 
to Wilkes county, Georgia, probably about 1783. Smith in his 
"History of Georgia" says he came 1787 to 1793, along with John, 
Sylvester and Abner Hammond. He moved from Elbert (taken 
from Wilkes) to Putnam, where he died in 1821. 'Of Mrs. 
Stubbs it is said, "She suffered during the Revolution with small- 
pox, from the effects of which she went blind. It is said that she 
never saw but one (John, the eldest) of her children. She was 
very diminutive and wore No. 13 shoes." Letter from Miss Kate 
Palmer Stubbs.)

82 The Descendants of John Stuhhs. 


There is a family of Stubbses, widely scattered through the 
South, that are the descendants of a George Stubbs who married 
Sarah Osprey. This George is said to have been the son of 
James Stubbs and had a brother Thomas, well known to the older 
members of the family, and another brother, Samuel, of whom 
nothing is known. 

George Stubbs lived and died at Cuthbert, Ga. He had a first 
cousin by name of Thos. Stubbs. The above, obtained from liv- 
ing members of the family, may be correct. It is possible for 
George and Samuel to be sons of James and Alary Eliza (Scott) 
Stubbs, ten of whose children have already been given, among 
them a son of Thomas. James had a brother, Peter, who had 
also a son Thomas. 

This may be the origin of this family, but it is uncertain and it 
is therefore deemed prudent to place this branch alone until future 
investigation shall transfer it to its proper place.

more extended record of those who are near and dear to the 

It was always a pleasant duty to give proper respect, obedience 
and affection to my devoted parents when they were alive, and 
now after death it is with peculiar pride that we chronicle their 
many virtues. 

In the old graveyard at Valley Front, a monument of purest 
marble bears the following inscription : 

"our mother^ 

"Ann Walker Carter Stubbs, wife of Jefferson W. Stubbs, Esq., 
eldest daughter of Capt. James Baytop and Lucy Taliaferro 
Catlett, his wife, of Springfield, in the county of Gloucester, 
the ancient seat of the family and place of her nativity. She 
died on the 22d September, 1894, in the 78th year of her age 
and the 60th of her marriage. She was of great and exem- 
plary piety and charity and in every relation of life, whether 
considered as a Christian, a wife, a mother, a mistress, a 
neighbor or a friend, she was equalled by few and excelled 
by none. 

"Death came peacefully and with gentle step and with tender 
touch, framed a lullaby fit for a Christian's rest." 

This monument was erected by her children and their modest 
tribute to her exalted worth is more than corroborated by the 
many eulogiums spoken by her neighbors, friends and acquaint- 
ances. From a large number only extracts from two will be 
given. The first is by the Rev. James C. Martin, once her pastor, 
who officiated at her golden wedding, and a 'distinguished minis- 
ter in the Virginia Methodist Conference. He, too, has since 
gone to reap his reward. 

"Her marriage was blessed with a large family of children, a 
number of whom preceded her to the better land. * * * jjgj. 
boys on earth are the Hon. James N. Stubbs, state senator ; Prof. 
Thos. Jefferson Stubbs of William and Mary College, and Prof. 
William C. Stubbs of the Louisiana State University. * * * 
The writer of these lines was honored with a chief place at their 
golden wedding, which occurred at Valley Front about ten years 
ago. Never was there a more beautiful and appropriate hour 
expressive of a long and happy union of two loving hearts * * 

90 The Descendants of John Stubbs. 

* She was a friend to the poor ; the widow and orphan, the sick 
and the suffering knew the tone of her voice, the kindness of her 
hands, and rise up to call her blessed. * * * jf children have 
ever had a truer, sweeter, tenderer, nobler Christian mother, I 
have failed to see her. If husband has ever had a finer type of 
all that constitutes a real helpmeet, 1 have never known her. If 
church and community have cause to mourn the loss of one of 
their chief treasures, then many eyes were moist with tears when 
God took this venerable woman to Himself. Mourners white 
and colored, in great numbers, gathered at Valley Front on the 
day of her burial. Rev. J. D. Hank, her pastor, assisted by the 
Rev. Wm. E. Wiatt of the Baptist church — the Rev. Wrn. B. 
Lee of the Episcopal church, performed the funeral services at 
Valley Front, and then the mortal remains were laid to rest in the 
graveyard there, where have slept the precious dust of the house 
of Stubbs for an hundred years." 

The second extract is from tlie pen of Prof. Alexander Hogg 
of Fort Worth, Texas, our first male teacher : 

"It is a pardonable if a proud recollection of the writer that her 
boys were among his first pupils. 

"The greatest amount of care for the sick and distressed was 
during the late war, when the troops at Yorktown were stricken, 
under the terrible results of camp life. Gloucester county extend- 
ed a welcome to these sufferers, and 'Valley Front' cared for over 
fifty at a time, and thus for months i'ts charity never failed. 

"But yesterday, the writer listened to an essay in which the 
virtues of the Spartan women were extolled. Spar'tan women ! 
Roman mothers ! ! Virginia has furnished as great examples of 
womanly virtue, Christian character and patriotic, devotion as the 
world ever saw. 

"She gave the service of her three sons to the Confederate 

"The funeral was the largest ever seen in the county. There 
was about this a fitness and a tenderness that must be mentioned 
here that will not soon be forgotten by those who witnessed the 
same. Her remains were borne to their last resting place, just 
over the ravine, in full view of the house — a bright spot — by her 
sons, her grandsons, her nephews and her cousins. The home at 
Valley Front will be gloomy this Christmas. The neighbors and 
friends who are accustomed annually to meet there will miss the 
bright cheer and large hospitality of this household — this home- 
stead that has been occupied by the same family descendants 
through several generations. 

"Not least among those who will sigh are the old familv ser-

vants. Few people understand the close and confiding relations 
that existed between there and their old owners. * * * 

"But out of all these losses and the exceeding sorrow of the 
household, a bright gleam — a radiant assurance comes to us, that 
society, the church, the state and mankind have been helped, have 
been infinitely blessed, through the noble character, the Christian 
life and the patriotic devotion of Airs. Jefferson W. Stubbs." 

Side by side with our mother lies our father, Jefferson W. 
Stubbs, who followed her to the grave a few years later. 

The Richmond Christian Advocate says : 

"He had attained his eighty-sixth year and had been for more 
than sixty years recording steward of Gloucester Circuit, witness- 
ing in that long period as many as six rearrangements of the ter- 
ritory known by that name as a pastoral charge. 

"After a long and faithful service, active, intelligent and useful, 
'he sleeps well,' his mortal part resting beside the dust of his wife, 
who was removed from his home a few years since and placed 
amidst the graves of other loved ones of his own and past genera- 

"The place on which he lived so long, being there born and dy- 
ing there, had been inherited from his father and has been in the 
possession of the Stubbs family for more than a hundred years. 
Their title is traced directly to the grant from the British crown." 

Tributes of respect were paid to his memory by the stewards of 
the AI. E. Church. South, of which he was a member for nearly 
sixty years; by the Gloucester Charity School, of which he was 
for fifty years president, and by the bar and people of Gloucester 
county, where he was the presiding justice for many years. The 
following are extracts from resolutions of the Gloucester Charity 
School : 

"Whereas, The relations as chief officer and fellow associate 
of this corporation held for a series of more than four decades, 
render it proper that we should place upon record our high ap- 
preciation of his valuable services as an officer and member, and 
his merits as a citizen ; therefore, 

''Resolved, That his memory as a man and as a fellow member, 
as president of this corporation, and as a Christian gentleman is 
precious to us all, and will remain unclouded as the years roll on. 

"That for his keen perception of right and wrong, his unswerv- 
ing fidelity to duty, his wise counsels, his discriminating judg- 
ment, and prudent forethought, his commendable conservatism, 
his fervid sympathy for the needy, the Gloucester Charity School 
and the communitv have sustained a great loss.

"That no token of affection can be too profuse, no mark of res- 
pect too emphatic, no rendition of honor too conspicuous for one 
whose virtues were so eminent and whose memory is so deeply 
enshrined in the affections of his associates. 

"Wm. F. Hogg, 
"Chas. Catlett, 
"Thos. S. Taliaferro, 


At a meeting of the bar and people of Gloucester county to take 
appropriate action with reference to the death of Jefferson W. 
Stubbs, General William B. Taliaferro was made chairman and 
Maryus Jones secretary, and the following resolutions were 
adopted : 

"Resolved (i). That we have heard with profound sorrow of 
the death of Mr. Jeff. W. Stubbs, for many years the presiding 
justice of the county of Gloucester, as organized before the adop- 
tion of the present constitution of the state. 

"Resolved (2), That Mr. Stubbs had been prominent in ail 
business and religious affairs of the county for many years, and 
although his age and infirm health had for some years prevented 
him from active participation in the affairs of life, we feel that a 
prominent landmark is missing from the county and the church. 

"Resolved (3), That the portrait of Mr. Stubbs now hanging 
in the courthouse be draped in mourning for thirty days. 

"Resolved (4), That these resolutions be spreads on the records 
of the county court of Gloucester county," etc. 

Appropriate remarks were made by Wm. Ap. W. Jones, Maryus

From small beginnings he has witnessed with delight the evolu- 
tion of agricultural teachings, until to-day few states can claim 
more agencies at work in behalf of agriculture than Louisiana. 
The gradually increasing appropriations made biennially by the_ 
Legislature of the state are the best evidences of the appreciation 
of the public of his laborious work. He lias published over one 
hundred bulletins upon various agricultural topics and has become 
an authority on Southern agriculture. His published works on 
sugar cane and the manufacture of sugar are known and appreci- 
ated wherever sugar cane is grown. He has also published sev-
