"Nothing without labor. 

To my Hubbard Kinsfolk : 

For many years I have been of the opinion that there was sufficient 
material and data in regard to our family in general, which if properly 
compiled would make a very interesting volume and add to the history 
of our country and its records. 

Some years ago I was urged by the late Edwin Hubbard, as well as 
Douglas Hubbard, to aid in publishing a Hubbard Genealogy, but I was 
firmly convinced, upon examination (and I am much more so now), that 
while what they had done was most excellent, that it did not go far 
enough to be broad, comprehensive and satisfactory to all the branches. 

However, it is largely due to their patient work in exciting an interest 
in keeping records which makes this book possible to-day. A letter 
from each, to the publisher, after they had passed " three score and ten," 
will be found under miscellaneous on page 401, and both show that they 
felt the incompleteness of their work. 

A bright, intelligent man, loyal to the memory of his Hubbard mother, 
was, however, already grown, who stood ready to pick up the broken 
fragments and cement them, with other data, together into presentable 
shape. I refer to Mr. Edward Warren Day, who modestly insists that 
his title shall be simply " compiler." Fully as much credit is due to him 
as to any one else, if not more, and I am sure that the army of Hubbards, 
of all " clans " and " tribes," will not be slow in according it to him. 

I have known of the careful and painstaking work which he has given 

to all of the lines, taking up the broken and incomplete chains of Edwin 

and Douglas (with their forty years work) at their death a few years 

ago spending his time and money freely, traveling and buying records 




from t<>\vn, parish and probate clerks and other sources; and I have 
i marveled at his patience and perseverance in untangling the mixed 
threads, and keeping straight the mountains of dates and names. 

When I had the opportunity, as a publisher of experience, of inspect- 
ing the mass of highly interesting and instructive manuscript which Mr. 
Day had prepared, in addition to the genealogical part, I felt sure that 
the time had come to perpetuate it, and give to our family a record of 
which all will be proud. 

Here it is, not " absolutely perfect " perhaps, for we are only human, 
but it is from the best possible obtainable records. The book is of ne- 
sitya good deal like a good huckleberry pie, in that it will be found full 
of good huckleberries and with but little crust. Interesting matter kept 
coming up to the time of going to press, so that it has increased the 
size of the book, by at least ioo pages, over what I anticipated. Hence 
an increase of cost to me; hence the increase of price to all who did not 
order in advance of publication. 

As publisher, I have spared neither labor nor expense to produce a 
book of highest grade and quality, as well as profuseness of illustration 
and general mechanical excellence. I am proud of its appearance and 
believe all other members of the "tribe" will be pleased with it. If 
so, should like to hear from you, saying how much you are pleased. 

I know that it is the part of a host who is entertaining a distinguished 
company to see that the guests are properly introduced and grouped. 
What is true in a social gathering is true in such an eclectic book as this. 
Therefore I take pleasure in introducing all the Hubbardsto each other, 
through this choicest mosaic history of one thousand years. 
With kindest regards to each and all, I am, 

Yours very trulv.

With sharpen'd sight pale antiquaries pore, 

The inscription value, but the rust adore. 

This the blue varnish that the green endears. 

The sacred rust of twice ten hundred years— Alexander Pope. 

A FAINT frost of age is beginning to encrust this country, and saviors 
of historical salvage must at once rescue from oblivion that which 
will be precious and invaluable to posterity. The time is scarcely yet, 
perhaps, but is fast approaching, when genealogy will be highly prized. 
Genealogy and biography are the two eyes of history, yet the former is 
generally assailed and ridiculed, as most incoming strange customs are. 
Horses and dogs can have their pedigrees preserved with perfect pro- 
priety, but apply the practice to humanity and it becomes an idle con- 
ceit! So saith our worldly-wise neighbor. Yet preserved genealogical 
records have restored to rightful heirs many millions in estates that 
would otherwise have been lost to them. 

It is not an indication of vain-gloriousness or empty conceit that 
prompts us to record the careers of our ancestors, environ their memo- 
ries with circlets of laurel, or disparage the plebeian at the expense of 
the patrician. The great Cicero was of plebeian birth, though a monu- 
ment of nobility of character, and quite fittingly did he crush the pomp- 
ous patrician who said to him, " I am a patrician; you are a plebeian." 
" True," replied the grand Roman, " but the nobility of my family be- 
gins with me; your's ends with you." 

George Lillo, a London dramatist, once said: "A respectable birth 
and fortune, though they make not a bad man good, yet they are a real 
advantage to a worthy one, and place his virtues in the fairest light." 
The compiler firmly believes this, and also that fifty years hence will 
find the published family genealogy occupying the centre-table or 
library shelf with the Bible, Shakspeare, and other standard literature. 
Our ancestors paid too expensively in sweat, suffering, and blood to 



cement the foundation stones of the governmental superstructure we 
now so peacefully and prosperously occupy to be forgotten, slighted, or 
ignored by succeeding generations, so largely made up of vandals and 
mammon-worshippers, and in whose breasts no Divine spark burns for 
things noble, holy, venerable, or antiquated, but, instead, a consuming 
fire to possess those riches of the earth that so often " take unto them- 
selves wings and fly away like an eagle toward heaven." America is 
now peopled with restless spirits who " haven't time " for research, rest, 
or recreation — animation to-day, clay to-morrow ! This is the condition 
of the present age. O tcmpora ! O mores ! We are told, also, that we 
are not "progressive" when we live in the past or indulge in retrospec- 
tion, though the philosopher does it to learn his lessons in philosophy. 
The philosopher lives in the past, the animal in the present, the am- 
bitious in the future. The writer rejoices that he is not in harmony 
with the spirit of the present times. He loves to exhume, wonder at, 
and admire the antiquated. He wants landmarks preserved and rever- 
enced, be they old houses, decaying graveyards, ancient books, or ven- 
erable trees. Republishing historic literature, legends and traditions, 
building memorial monuments to the heroic, and perpetuating family 
names meet with his hearty approbation. William Makepeace Thack- 
eray said: "As you like your father to be an honorable man, why not 
your grandfather and his ancestors before him ?" Let us, then, venerate 
their memories, reset their falling tombstones, record their achieve- 
ments — simple or great — chronicle their names and virtues, and avoid a 
prospective charge of being a generation of ingrates. The stimulation 
of such inward reflections brings forth this book, imperfect, and sprinkled 
here and there with errors, as it doubtless is. From those unused to 
untwisting genealogical tangles the compiler expects but little compas- 
sion for mistakes, but from those familiar with such distracting compli- 
cations he looks for some charity. The novelist and the poet have much 
the advantage over the historian. They can let fly ubiquitiously their 
harmless darts of fancy, tipped and plumed with sentiment and poesies > 
but the chronologist must always abide in the domain of prosaic facts, a 
prey ever for the watchful, ambushed critic, who mercilessly trips him 
at every opportunity, and with malignant joy points out his errors. 
Verily there are but few roses, yet many thorns encountered in the 
genealogist's path. Volunteers to assist in such labors are few, finan- 
cial donators still more scarce (philanthropists donate to libraries, 
not to the makers of libraries), and the votary must comfort himself 
with the solacing thought that " the reward of good works is like dates — 
sweet, and ripening late." 


As it is the commendation of a good huntsman to find game in a ride wood, so it is no imputa- 
tion if he hath not caught all— Plato. 

THE compiler of this volume claims not that it is a Hubbard Geneal- 
ogyper se. It is, to be more exact a compendium, or Hubbard Hand- 
book. A genealogy, pure and simple, of all Hubbard lines, completed 
to date, would rival Webster's Dictionary in both size and expense. 
Such a volume will never be compiled. The obstacles are too great. 
Descendants will not answer letters, promptly or at all, furnish neces- 
sary data, or subscribe freely to the^e enterprises, so something less 
must we fain be content with. It is hard to stir the stagnant pools of 
genealogical indifference into a boiling enthusiasm. Better talent 
should have been secured to concrete these historical and genealogical 
scraps, but volunteers do not materialize. The mantles of Edwin 
Hubbard and Douglas Hubbard (veteran and painstaking genealogists) 
seem to have fallen to the ground. Both died very poor. They lived 
not long enough to enjoy appreciation or the harvest time. With them 
genealogy was an applied science, with the writer a diversion only, and 
he cheerfully admits that without their blazoning marks on the trees in 
the dense forest of genealogy he would have been many times hope- 
lessly lost. 

Beginning with the first ancestor of each line in this country, there 
are to-day seven or more distinct Hubbard branches. By adding to 
these the " Hobart " line, the " Hulbard-Hubbard " line, a ''Line of 
Maryland Hubbards " and the line of "Virginia Hubbards," we have 
about a dozen lines producing Hubbards to enrich this great Common- 
wealth. The compiler is in correspondence with representatives of all 
these lines, and there may be still other lines extant. If so, they have 
so far escaped his winnowings. It is possible John Hubbard, son of 
Anthony Hubbard of Dedham, may have a living posterity; also the 
male children of widow Elizabeth Hubbard of Boston, and the issue of 
Benjamin Hubbard of Boston, who returned to England and there died, 


though signs indicate that some of his children came back, possibly 
Thomas and Richard. This can not yet be positively proven, those 
surnames being very common among early Hubbard families. 

It being so easy to become bewildered in tracing genealogical threads, 
it is hoped the difficulty has been somewhat lessened by interspersing 
miscellaneous Hubbard matter between different branches. Blank 
leaves have also been added to permit descendants to take up their lines 
where the compiler leaves them. 

The sources of information herein utilized are too numerous to more 
than briefly mention. A considerable portion came from England, the 
major portion directly from town clerks' records, probate records and 
early deeds, and from professional genealogists, a little from published 
histories, some from Bible and prayer-book registrations, some from 
tombstone inscriptions and some from "trees" loaned. 

The compiler would be unmindful of the requirements of gratitude 
not to herewith record his deep obligations to Robert vSage Griswold, 
William Henry Hubbard and Hon. Gardiner Greene Hubbard for their 
loyal support and substantial encouragement. Without their contribu- 
tions and devotion to this enterprise the volume would have been 
longer delayed in appearance and less satisfactory in contents. Mr. 
Griswold is a great grandson of Jeremiah Hubbard (through Bathsheba 
Hubbard) and also of Constant Griswold, both Revolutionary War par- 
ticipants. He is a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, a 
genuine antiquary, and loyal to genealogists, who write to him from 
every locality, and lives in Cromwell, near Middletown, Ct. Mr. Wil- 
liam Henry Hubbard is a leading manufacturer of Duluth, Minn, (see 
Descent Line), a genealogist himself of no small attainments, and has 
contributed voluminous data to this book. Gardiner Greene Hubbard, 
President of the National Geographic Society (see Prominent Ameri- 
can Hubbards), as soon as he became satisfied of the good faith of the 
enterprise, gave timely financial aid, and personally attended to pro- 
curing valuable genealogical matter outside of the compiler's reach. 
Such support can not be overrated or overlooked. 

Non-contributors of family or ancestral data should not feel disap- 
pointed if much of their family data should happen to be omitted in 
this volume, or be printed incorrectly. Over 3,000 Hubbard descend- 
ants have been invited by circular to contribute their genealogical 
possessions, yet few have responded. Knowing full well that errors 
spring up like mushrooms, while truth rises but slowly, the compiler 
claims only correctness approximately in the contents of this volume. 
Many dates copied from miscellaneous sources he mistrusts, yet has had 
no means of verification. 


He also presents his sincere thanks to the following- subscribers for 
encouragement and data contributed: Mrs. Thomas Scranton Hubbard,

E. W. D 


(Descended from George Hubbard of Guilford and Middletown, Ct.) 

A good name is like precious ointment. It filleth all round about and will not easily away. For 
the odors of ointments are more durable than flowers— Lord Bacon. 

THE compiler having received from high English authority (notably 
from a Member of Parliament, the late Right Hon. John Gelli- 
brand Hubbard, Baron, the first Lord Addington and Governor-General 
of the Bank of England) versions unanimously supporting the family 
traditions regarding the origin of the name HUBBARD, with consider- 
able confidence presents herewith the following narrative, with its very 
dramatic climaxes, as the correct source of the name, which name, with 
its time-producing corruptions, has now overspread the world. From a 
crude, though reliable, semi-barbaric Danish and Saxon literature these 
historic gems have been mined and burnished, and are now offered to 
HUBBARD descendants with the compiler's strongest assurances that 
the appraisement of their historic worth has not been one of overvalue; 
nor has it been colored at the expense of probity with rich and sensa- 
tional embellishment. The latter indulgence is the license of the poet 
and novelist but not that of the historian and genealogist. 

Upon the accession of King Ethelwulf in 839 to the throne of Wes- 
sex — consisting of the provinces of Kent, Essex and Surrey, in Britain — 
about the first matter to spur his activity was the beginning of imme- 
diate preparations to resist the invasions of the rapacious Danes, or 
Norsemen, who ruled the northern seas, the Orkney and Shetland 
Islands, and Jutland (or the Scandinavian continent) with unquestioned 
authority and rigor. Scandinavia was the birthplace of a savage set 
of men who, like the Saxons of old, spent the best portion of their lives 
on the waves, despising the tranquil enjoyments of peace, and cultivat- 
ing instead the art of unlawful acquisition and rapine. Their maritime 
situation familiarized them with the science of navigation. The children 
of these sea-kings were educated to piracy. The eldest son received 


the patrimony of the father, and the remaining sons were given swords 
and ships with which they were expected to go forth and acquire glory 
and riches. Until the ninth centnry these adventurous sea-robbers con- 
fined their operations to their own waters. But later on, possessed of 
the spirit of Alexander the Great, and hearing stories of the great 
wealth of the Latin dominions, they embarked for the southern seas on 
their freebooting expeditions. Their first attempts were directed 
toward the British Isles. Then they desolated the coasts of Gaul and 
Spain, and, venturing into the Mediterranean Sea, taught also the in- 
habitants of those shores how to tremble. The establishment of the 
duchy of Normandie, the Danish dynasty in England, and, afterward, a 
kingdom in Italy, are monuments of their courage, activity and per- 

They made three important descents into England during the ninth 
century, one being upon the Isle of Thanet, and the other two upon 
the coasts of Northumberland and into the county of Kent. The 
famous King of the Franks, Charlemagne, sometimes called " Charles 
the Hammer," son of Pepin the Short and Bertha, and grandson of 
Charles Martel, conqueror of the Huns, Slavons, Saracens, Arabs and 
Britons, wept tears of sorrow at the future of his people at the hands of 
these wild Northmen. According to Guizot's History of France he thus 
expressed himself to his Court: " Know ye, my lieges, wherefore I weep 
so bitterly ? Of a surety I fear not lest these fellows should succeed in 
injuring me by their miserable piracies ; but it grieveth me deeply that 
whilst I live they should have been nigh to touching at this shore, and 
I am a prey to violent sorrow when I foresee what evils they will heap 
upon my descendants and their people." Charlemagne died Jan. 28, 
814; and during the ninth and tenth centuries in verification of his pre- 
diction the Northmen made no less than forty-seven incursions into 

John Lingard, D. D., a famous Catholic-English historian, says in 
better and more perspicuous language than the compiler can perhaps 
summon, that "among the sea-kings was Ragnar Lodbrog [Regner 
Lodbrok or Lodbrock] and his two* sons, Hingua and HUBBA [Ingua 
or Inguar — Ubba or UbboJ who was one of the most adventurous and 
successful. On the shores of the Baltic, in the Orkneys and the 
Hebrides, in Ireland, Scotland, and Northumbria, he had diffused the 
terror of his name. In France the intrepid pirate had conducted his 
fleet up the Seine, spread the flames of devastation on each of its banks, 
and taken possession of Paris, which was redeemed from destruction

only by the payment of ,£7,000 of silver. By his orders ships of a 
larger size than had hitherto been navigated by his countrymen were 
constructed for an invasion of England; but, whether it was owing to 
the violence of the weather or the unskilfulness of the navigators, they 
were wrecked on the coast of Northumbria. Ragnar with several of 
his followers reached the shore, and, heedless of the consequences, 
commenced their usual career of depredation. Though the Northum- 
brians had cast off the yoke imposed on them by Egbert, their country 
was torn by civil dissensions; and at this very moment their chieftains 
were divided by the opposite pretensions of two competitors, Osbert 
and ^FUla. At the first news of the descent of the Northmen, the latter 
flew to the coast, fought with the plunderers, made Ragnar prisoner, 
and immediately put him to death. He is said to have been devoured 
by snakes, and to have consoled his last moments with the hope ' that 
the cubs of the boar would avenge his fate.' Nor was he disappointed. 
His sons, Hingua and HUBBA, who were in Denmark, swore to avenge 
his murder. The relations, the friends, and the admirers of the dead 
chieftain crowded to their standard, and eight sea-kings, with twenty 
jarls [noblemen] combined their forces in the pursuit of revenge and 

In 868 King Ethelwulf having been dead several years — also his two 
older sons, Ethelbald and Ethelbert— the crown of Wessex descended 
about 871 upon Ethelred, the third son. There also remained the 
youngest son, Alfred, known afterward as Alfred the Great, who ably 
assisted his brother in their stout resistance against these ubiquitous 

In the Fall of 866, with an 
immense fleet and 20,000 war- 
riors, Hingua and HUBBA 
landed on the coast of East- 
Anglia or Kent to avenge the 
foul death of the "old boar." 
They fortified their camp 
strongly and awaited rein- 
forcements from the Baltic, 
spending the winter in pro- 
curing horses and in corrupt- 
ing the loyalty of some of the 
Northumberland chieftains 

toward their own king, Ethelred. In February, 867, they left their 
camp on the coast and marched landward and seized York. Osbert 
and ^Ella patched up a truce between themselves, united their forces, 




and engaged Hingua and HUBBA outside of the city, and eventually 
drove them back within its walls. The Northumbrians battered 
breaches in the walls, rushed through, and fell upon Hingua and 
HUBBA'S forces with great vigor and fury, but the ferocious Norse- 
men in their savage desperation finally turned and dispelled their 
relentless foes. Osbert was killed and yElla was taken prisoner. 
Hingua and HUBBA now enjoyed the exquisite pleasure of torturing 
the men who had thrown their father into a cage of snakes to be de- 
voured, and well they used the opportunity. The punishment they in- 
flicted upon yElla is called in Danish vernacular "at rista orn." It 
consists in dividing the ribs, drawing the lungs through the opening 
and pouring salt upon them. Thus was King Ragnar Lodbrog (/. e., 
Ragnar of the " Shaggy Brogues ") avenged by his loyal " cubs." 

This last victory gave to Hingua and HUBBA undisputed possession 
of all that dominion south of the Tyne and north of Nottingham. The 
native inhabitants were constrained to purchase the friendship of Hingua 
and HUBBA, who immediately began to prepare for a southern inva- 
sion. Leaving a small force in possession of York to cultivate the coun- 
try and retain possession of it, they proceeded against Ethelred and 
Alfred. They crossed the Humber into Lincolnshire, burnt the rich 
monastery at Bardenay and put its occupants to the sword. A small 
army of Saxons in the district of Kestevan stopped their progress for 
one day, however, killing three of the Danish chieftains, but soon the 
victorious invaders were sweeping on to the monastery of Croyland. 
Oskytue, a Danish leader, forced open the gates, and beheaded the abbot 
on the steps of the alter. Having pillaged and burnt the monastery, 
they marched to Medeshampsted, where the inhabitants resisted them 
stoutly and wounded Hingua. Soon the gates gave way and the blood- 
thirsty Danes slaughtered all whom they found, not sparing it is said 
women and children who had sought refuge in the abbey. HUBBA, to 
avenge his wounded brother, slew with his own hand the abbot and 
eighty-four monks. From the ashes of Medeshampsted they proceeded 
on to Huntington, destroying it, and then took the Isle of Ely. The 
nuns in this monastery were descended from noble Saxon families, and 
yet escaped not the cruelty and lust of these barbarous invaders. The 
King of Mercia, St. Edmund, was captured at Hoxon-on-the-Waveney, 
bound naked to'a tree, and, at HUBBA'S command, was whipped and 
otherwise tortured and finally beheaded. They met King Ethelred and 
Alfred the Great at Excesdune [AstonJ, and after a terrific battle were 
routed and in confusion fled as far as Reading. Bacseg, a Danish King, 
the jarls Osburn, Frean, Harold, and the two Sidrocs were killed. " A

feated." Other battles were afterward fought at Basing and Morton, 
in Berkshire, in which the Danes were victorious, they having- received 
fresh reinforcements from the Baltic. Ethelred was killed, and then 
the invaders returned to Reading- to divide their spoils and rejoice in 
the glory of their conquests. 

In 878 Hingua and HUBBA with a fleet of 23 ships "ravaged the 
coasts of Demetia or South Wales, and, crossing to the northern coast of 
Devonshire, the sanguinous HUBBA landed his troops in the vicinity of 
Apledore. It appears as if the two brothers had previously agreed to 
crush the king [Alfred] between the pressure of their respective armies. 

At the castle of Kynwith, built upon an almost impregnable rock, 
Odun,* the Saxon leader, took his position. The Danish leader [HUBBA] 
was too wary to hazard an assault, and calmly pitched his tents at the 
foot of the mountain in the confident expectation that the want of water 
would force the garrison to surrender. But Odun, gathering courage 
from despair, silently left his entrenchments at the dawn of morning, 
burst into HUBBA'S camp, slew him, with twelve hundred of his fol- 
lowers, and then drove the remnant of the routed army to their fleet. 
Odun captured HUBBA'S lucky battle-flag, the mysterious standard of 
Ragner, the " Reafan," [raven] which was "woven in one noon-tide by 
thehands of the three daughters of Ragner." The superstition of the 
Danes had accustomed them to watch this bird on their standard as they 
marched to battle. If it appeared to flap its wings, victory was certain, 
but if it hung motionless in the air they anticipated nothing but defeat. 

Thus perished HUBBA, and also for a long time the martial fire that 
burned within the breasts of the adventurous Danes, though Hingua after- 
ward invaded Ireland, but was killed there, while Half dene and Gothrun, 
the successors of Hingua and HUBBA, made a very creditable stand 
against Alfred the Great at Ethandune. Gothrun was captured by King 
Alfred, but was permitted to live on the condition of his embracing 
Christianity, which he accepted, and, with thirty of his followers, was 
baptised at Aulre, Alfred being Gothrun 's god-father. They jointly 
signed a compact wherein it was declared that "the lives of Englishmen 
and Danes were of equal value." It is not related what became of Half- 
dene [Half dan or Half dane], possibly the brother of Hingua and HUBBA. 
"The Hinguas," "the Gothruns," and "the HUBBA'S," then in the 
main adopted the names of their kings, with the habits of civilization, 
and, acquiring an interest in the soil, helped the Britains to protect it 
against subsequent marauding invaders; and sometimes these unwel- 
come visitors were their own erstwhile countrymen, but their allegiance 
to their adopted country was true, and they bec ame during Britain's

rapid advancement toward commercial and agricultural supremacy, her 
most skilled and reliable husbandmen. 

The rapid and extensive movements of HUBBA over the territory now 
England and Wales, and his penchant for encamping upon and fortify- 
ing high places, has been of great value to the historical and archaeo- 
logical student, leaving as he did indubitable traces of his remarkable 
marches. Throughout Britain and Wales have existed seven historic 
eminences that have borne the name of " Hubba's Hill." The picture 
of one spot has been happily preserved, though not located upon an 
eminence. Francis Grose, Esq., F. A. S., in his "Antiquities of England 
and Wales," thus refers to a spot known as " Hubba Stone Priory" (also 
Hubberston, or Hubbaston), and gives, with the foregoing inscription 
underneath, in the work, an illustration of it: "The ruin stands in Pem- 
brokeshire, not far from Milford Haven, and is called by the inhabitants 
the priory; but whether for monks or nuns, or what order, and when 

and by whom founded, are par- 
ticulars not handed down by 
tradition, or, at least, not known 
by the generality of the neigh- 
boring people. The building 
here shown seems to have been 
part of the gatehouse, in all 
likelihood the principal one be- 
longing to the monastery. This 
view was drawn by Air. Grimm 
anno 1 77 1." 
hubba stone priory * Mr Walter Hubbell, in his 

" History of the Hubbell Family," infers that this, family might also 
have descended from Hubba the Dane, making still another addition to 
the long list of names that had for their root " Hubba." He quotes 
Rev. William Arthur, father of the late lamented ex-President Chester 
Alan Arthur, as saying in his " Etymological Dictionary of Family 
Names " that it had this origin, and surmises that Hubbell came from 
Hubba's Hill perhaps, rendered " Hubb'll " by local pronunciation. In 
his preface Mr. Hubbell says: "For me to assert that the early members 
of the Hubbell Family were lineal descendants of Hubba the Dane 
would be supposititious; but I do say, and without fear of contradiction, 
that the surname Hubbell is of Danish origin." He claims no kinship 
with the Hubbard Family, and the compiler found no proof either of 
any affinity with it, though the word Hubba could easily have been the 
common root of both. 

* From an etching in Grose's "Antiquities of England and Wales." 


Referring- to Francis Grose's account of Hubba Stone Priory, Mr. 
Hubbell says further: " It is most probable that the ruin thus described 
was never erected nor used as a priory, but was the remains of a fortress 
or castle erected and inhabited by Hubba; for his last permanent forti- 
fication is known to have been near Milford-Haven, where his fleet 
harbored and whence he crossed the channel, landed from his twenty- 
three ships in Devonshire, England, where he was slain in battle. From 
the vast amount of historical research I have made in regard to this 
subject, I have been led to believe that several hills in Britain upon 
which he and his band had previously encamped afterwards bore his 
name. The name Hubba is not only very ancient in British historv, but 
probably of great antiquity in Asia.* * * Mr. Hormuzd Rassam 
paid a visit to the mounds called by the Arabs Tell Abu Hubba; the 
mounds, which are very extensive, cover an area of two miles in circum- 
ference, and the position of the walls and citadels is clearly marked by 
mounds and embankments of debris. Like most Babylonian edifices, 
the buildings at Abu Hubba are built with the angles to the cardinal 
points [here follows a full description of the citadel and its environ- 
ments]. * * * The remote ancestors of Hubba the Dane came from 
Asia, and it is more than probable from the very valley where the 
ruins — beneath the mounds of Abu Hubba — were discovered. Now, as 
personal names are handed down for centuries, why may not the name 
Hubba have been used by the remote ancestors of the chieftain in Asia? 
The very fact of the existence of the name in Asia at the present day 
indicates to my mind that it is of an antiquity probably as great as the 
ruins discovered beneath the mounds." 

In a historical account of Whitby Abbey, Yorkshire, England, the sub- 
ject is thus touched upon: " This monastery continued in a flourishing 
state until about the year 867, when a party of Danes under Hubba and 
Hingua landed at Dunesley Bay, two miles westward of this place, and 
encamped on an eminence on the east side thereof, still called Raven's 
Hill, which name it is supposed to have been obtained from the figure of 
that bird being worked on the Danish ensign which was there displayed. 
From thence, straggling into the country, they plundered and laid it 
waste, and among other depredations entirely destroyed this monastery, 
which lay in ruins for many years. The community being dispersed, 
only Titus, the abbot, fled with the relics of St. Hilda to Glastonbury.* 

"Old English History " and David Hume also relate much of him. 
The following is another extract: "In 871 Hubba and Hingua took St. 
Edmund,f the King, prisoner at Thetford, in East Anglia. They offered 

* The reputed birthplace of George Hubbard, the American emigrant. 

t Percy Lindley, in his "Holidays in England," records that "St. Edmund, the last King of the East 



him his life and kingdom if he would forsake Christianity and reign 
under them, When he refused they tied him to a tree and shot at him 
with arrows, and at last cut off his head. In the churches at Norfolk 
and Suffolk are to be seen pictures of him pierced with arrows. The 
Danes at the same time killed Humberht, Bishop of the East Angles, 
and after ravaging the country and burning the churches and monas- 
teries, they went into Mercia and carried on their depredations." 

The compiler in his researches has been often amazed at the number 
of grotesque mutations the name HUBBARD has undergone, fully 
equaling the number of ways the name " Shakespeare " has been 
spelled, which it is said overruns fifty. He has seen it spelled Hobbert, 
Hobart, Hubert, Hubard, Hobard, Hobbard, Hubord, Hubberte, Hu- 
bart, Hobbart, Ouabert [French Canadian], Hubba, Hubb, Ubba, 
Ubbart, Ubbo, Hoberd, Huberd, Hobert, Hubbar, Hubber, Hubbud, 
Hubburd, Hubud, Horberd, Horburd, Horbert, Hobbud, Hebbard, 
Hoebard, Hubbed, Hobbed, Hubed, Hobbar, Herbut, Herbeord, Hobood, 
Haburd, Hubird, Hobat, Hubbirt, Hubirt, Hobbet, Harburd, Hebberd, 
Heburd, Habberd, Hoppert, Harbard, Hapberd, Herbert and Happert. 

There are many descendants in this country who use the common 
form of Hubbart, Hubert, Hubbert, Hobert, Hobard and Hubard. The 
writer holds to the theory that HUBBA is the root of these multiform 
corruptions, though some other descendants incline to the contrary 
opinion. There was dense confusion in spelling names in the fifteenth 
century, the orthography being then very loose. Surnames only began 
to be adopted after the Norman Conquest (1066), and then only grad- 
ually and by families of rank. Almost all parish and legal records were 
written in Latin from the eleventh to the sixteenth century, which 
created great difficulty in furnishing the correct translation of proper 
names. Early town scribes in this country wrote the name as fancy 
guided them, totally indifferent to the perplexity they were surely 
entailing upon an enquiring posterity. The writer saw in an old town 
record the name HUBBARD (referring to one individual only), spelled 
in four different ways. With such indubitable proofs of this system of 
variform orthography in the early days it is taking an indefensible posi- 
tion to insist upon the unimpeachibility of any of these names regard- 
ing their purity of origin. 

Angles, who was defeated and slain by the Danes, is commemorated by a church dedicated to him, 
which was celebrated for possessing a fragment of the martyr's underlinen that wrought miracles 
till such ecclesiastical properties were committed to the flames at the Reformation. 'Norwich 'is 
Norse, say philologists ; and the physical characteristics and names of many of its inhabitants prove 
the former predominance of the Scandinavian element. Under ^Ethelstan and his immediate suc- 
cessors Norwich flourished and grew wealthy, only to be destroyed and plundered by the Danes, in 
the days of iEthelred the Unready." Norwich stands at the head of a fine natural harbor in Norfolk 
that was used in early days by the Angles, Danes and Normans. Wymondham Parish, but a short 
distance from Norwich, contains in its various church registers many Hubbard genealogical records.

It is far from my design to intimate that Heraldry can have any tendency unfriendly to the 
purest spirit of Republicanism— George Washington. 

AMONG Hubbard descendants the compiler has found considerable 
confusion and a misty knowledge generally about the HUBBARD 
COATS OF ARMS, especially as to which was the correct coat. To 
dispel this fog and settle beyond peradventure some conflicting opin- 
ions, the writer obtained from the Herald's College, London, its regis- 
tered data covering this much misunderstood matter, which he presents 
herewith under the seal of universally acknowledged authority. 

To start with, it is well to say that in early periods in England 
various grants of arms have been awarded to "Hubbards," " Hubbarts," 
"Hobarts," " Hubberts," "Huberts," " Hubarts," and " Hubberds," and 
all are correct, being grants made at different times to collateral 
branches of the HUBBARD tree trunk. The four leading coats only, 
as furnished by the Herald's College, are herein illustrated, though 
others mentioned in Burke's " Encyclopedia of Heraldry " are herewith 

There being founded in law or sentiment no college of arms in this 
country, or in existence any statutes recognizing such an institution of 
symbolism as " Heraldry," any Hubbard descendant is privileged to 
appropriate any Hubbard heraldic device to his own iise — or any other 
armorial design for that matter — should the fancy so seize him, though 
a consideration for the ethics of propriety would doubtless forbid 
choosing the latter course. Such liberties could not under any circum- 
stances be taken in foreign countries, where these rights are proprietary 
and inviolate. Persons unable to prove descent from the original 
grantee are punished there for assuming armorial bearings illegally. 
In the United States " Heraldry " has no legal status. 

The graceful art of heraldry began to show distinctive signs of exist- 






ence a little later than the beginning of the eleventh century. Its 
parentage comes from out of a cloud of fantastical romance interwoven 
with various superstitious skeins of allegorical entity. 

One account of its origin says that in 1098 the Christians being near 
Antioch, and the night waxing dark, to give them safety there appeared 
a white star, or " mulette," of five points, which "to every man's sighte 
did lighte and arreste upon the standard of De Vere, there shvning 
excessively." Hence the De Veres adopted upon their "escutcheon" 
(from " scutum " — a leather covering) five stars. 

In Sir John Froissart's Chronicles is given another version of its 
inception. It declares that the " Kynge of France " had a bright 
"visyon on a night as he lay in his bedde asleepe of a flyeing Hart," 
which " pleased hym so moche that when he went into Flanders to fight 
with the Flemynges he took to his devyse the flyeing Harte." 

Another writer says that it originated in Germany about 10 10, and 
cites the reclining figure of a certain Varmond, Count of Vasserburg, on 
a monument in the church of St. Emmeran, at Ratisbon, Anno Domini 
MX., as the oldest symbolic evidence in existence of architectural 
heraldry. It may have originated there, but it certainly developed in 
France, and at once engrafted itself upon the body-politic of Great 
Britain. It rose in importance and assumed great proportions during 
the Crusades. Every soldier's commander was distinguishable by the 
devices worn upon his "banneret " and shield. In tournaments a 
knight's identity was thus discovered, and when he championed the 
cause of one or more ladies, their insignia was also borne upon his 
shield in half or quartered sections, which were called " fields." In 
medieval times the armorial designs represented valorous achieve- 
ments, the descent of hereditary honors, or distinctions appertaining to 
nobility, and counterfeiting these designs brought severe penalties. In 
later periods the dignity of these devices became somewhat debased by 
appearing upon windows, tombstones, carriages, rings, tilings, family 
plate, and other household decorations. It is claimed with some force 
of plausibility that the heat of the sun was the direct cause of the " cote 
armure " (coat over armor). The heat and glare was often intolerable 
to the soldier or knight, and a "coat " or "habit " became a necessity 
and the devices or " charges " were then transferred to the " coat." 

The grant of the coat of arms shown in one of the illustrations was 
made in the time of King Henry VII, who reigned from 14S5 to 1509. 
This coat was granted to "THOMAS HUBBARD, of Calais," which 
garrisoned and fortified city was then under English domination and so 
remained until 1558, and which James Anthony Froude, the English 
historian, called a " rendezvous for malcontents."

The honor was conferred upon THOMAS HUBBARD by Sir 
Christopher Barker, the Garter King- of Arms at that time of the Her- 
ald's College, who was also the official confidential agent of royalty and 
invested with power to go abroad and confer titles and ofttimes adjust 
royal marriage preliminaries and negotiations. The officials of the Col- 
lege of Arms are the Earl Marshal (hereditary through line of Duke of 
Norfolk), the Clarencieux King, Norroy King, Garter King, six Heralds, 
and four Royal Pursuivants. THOMAS HUBBARD was said to have 
been one of King Henry's soldiers.

gorged with a crown (ur and gules). * No crest is recorded, and neither No. I nor No II have anv 

The Herald's College describes still another Coat in the accompany-

Aprd 20, 1550, upon the death of Sir Christopher] May 19. 1575, in the 17th year of Queen Elizabeth's 
reign, to EDWARD HUBBARD, of Burchanger, Essex County, Gentleman, one of the six Clerks of 
the High Court of Chancery, son and heir of Richard Hubbard, son and heir of John Hubbard citizen 
and mercer of London.

* Though the College has no record of the crests and mottoes adorning the accompanying illus- 
trations, that does not signify that they have been unlawfully acquired. These appendages are of 
subordinate importance anyway, and in some manner unknown have escaped registration ■ yet it 
has seemed proper to display them in the illustrations, because (1) the escutcheons would look' barren 
and incomplete without them, and (2) because the titled Hubbards of Europe are now using them 
and have been, for over 200 years at the least.

The ensuing narrations have been chiefly furnished to the compiler by a " professional searcher," 
who was highly recommended to him by the British Museum, and should be fairly accurate in details 
so far as the transcription of records goes. 

After the death of King HLBBA by Odun in 878 HLBB.VS descendants populated Eastern and 
Southeastern England from the river Humber down to the English Channel, comprising mainly Lin 
colnshire, Rutland, Cambridge, Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, and Kent. They engaged principally in agri- 
culture, horticulture and floriculture, and their doings to the historical ferret remain hidden up to 
about the thirteenth century. 

JOHN HUBBARD was born about 1235, and lived in Tye, Norfolk. 
(The name is also spelled Hoberd, Huberd, and Hobart). No 
record of his death. 

THOMAS HUBBARD (name also spelled Hoberd and Hobart), a 
descendant and heir of John, was born between 1400 and 1425, and 
lived at Leyham, Norfolk. No record of his death. He left sons 
James and William. 

Sir TAMES HUBBARD (name also spelled Hoberd and Hobart), was 
the youngest son of Thomas Hubbard (Hoberd or Hobart) of Leyham, 
Norfolk, and was born about 1425. He represented in Parliament in 
1467 and 1478 Ipswich, Norfolk, after having become a member of the 
bar at Lincoln's Inn during- the time of King Henry VII. He was one 
of the Governors of this famed law school from 1479 to x 5°3- Novem- 
ber 1, i486, he was created Attorney-General of England by King 
Henry VII, and soon thereafter sworn of the privy council. He ren- 
dered' good service to his sovereign during the- coast fisheries difficulty 
in November of 1487, and was knighted February 18, 1502-3. His first 
wife was a sister of John Lyhert, and he was the first Hubbard to settle 
in Norfolk. His third wife was Margeret, daughter of Peter Naunton, 
Letheringham, Suffolk. Sir JAMES died according to some authorities 
in 1507 and was buried in Norwich Cathedral. Other authorities claim 


he was alive in 1511, and upon death was buried at Loddon, Norfolk, 
where his wife Margaret was buried in 1484 and where he founded a 
church. Sir JAMES bought and resided at Hales Hall, and by his wife 
Margaret had a son, Sir Walter, and perhaps other children. 

WILLIAM HUBBARD, son of Thomas of Leyham and brother to 
Sir James, was born about 1420. He left a son Miles and probably 
other children. No record of his death. 

MILES * HOBART, a descendant of William, was born about 1550, 
and resided at Plumstead, Norfolk, and also in London. He married 
Eleanor Blaverhasset, daughter of John, and left sons Sir Miles, John 
and Thomas.

Sir MILES HOBART, son of Sir Miles and Elizabeth, his third wife, 
was born April 14, 1595, at Plumstead, Norfolk, and was knighted at 
Salisbury, August 8, 1623, and elected Member of Parliament in 1627 
from Great Marlow, Buckinghamshire. He became a famous politician, 
and March 2, 1628-9, during an exciting and memorable debate in Par- 
liament he locked the door to prevent some timid members from leaving 
and forcibly held the Speaker in his chair until a favorite measure of 
his could be passed. For this with Sirs Peter Heymen, Selden, Coriton, 
Long and Strode he was imprisoned in the " Kings Bench " and from 
there taken to the Tower and kept until 1631. He married Susan Pey- 
ton, daughter of Johr, Baronet, of Isleham, Cambridge, and had chil- 
dren Sir John and Alice. June 29, 1632, he was killed by the overturning 
of his coach, and was buried at Great Marlow, July 4, 1634. January 18,

testimonial to his virtues in opposing illegal and harmful measures 
while a member of Parliament. 

Sir HENRY HOBART, son of Thomas of Plumstead, was born prob- 
ably before 1550. He became a member of Lincoln's Inn August 10, 

* The name now is chronicled " Hobart." and will be so treated The parish registers, however, of 
Norwich, continued to carry many of these branches as "Hubbards,"as does the register at Wymond- 
ham, Norfolk, which has recorded there "Thomas Hubbard" and "Caleb Hubbard," the son and 
grandson respectively, of Edmund Hobart, of Hingham, the American emigrant.

ber of Parliament for St. Ives, Cornwall, in 1588-9, and for Yarmouth, 
Siiffolk, in 1597-1601, and Norwich, Suffolk, from 1604 to 1610. July 4, 
1606, he became his Majesty's Attorney-General, barring Lord Bacon's 
way to promotion for seven years, much to Bacon's great annoyance. 
He was Chancellor to Henry, Prince of Wales, and created a Baronet in 
May, 161 1. November 26, 1613, he was constituted Lord Chief Justice 
of the Common Pleas, and known as a most learned, prudent, grave, 
and religious Judge. In 16 17 he was Chancellor and Keeper of the 
Great Seal of Charles, Prince of Wales. He married April 22, 1590, 
Dorothy Bell, daughter of Robert, of Beaupre Hall, Norfolk, Lord 
Chief Baron of the exchequer under Queen Elizabeth. By her he had 
twelve sons and four daughters, of which nine of the sons died young, 
leaving Sir John, Baronet (who succeeded his father), and Henry, 
the daughters being Dorothy, Mary, Elizabeth, and Francis. 
He died December 26, 1625, and was buried in Christ Church, Norwich,

Sir JOHN HOBART, eldest son of Sir Henry and Dorothy (Bell) 
Hobart, was born April 19, 1593, at Norwich: knighted at ten years of 
age, and made a Baronet at 32. He lived at Blickling, Norfolk, and also 
acquired Plumstead from his cousin Sir Thomas. He represented Corf-' 
Castle, Dorsetshire, in 1603: also Lestwithiel, Cornwall, and Thetford in 
1625: also the county of Norfolk in 1641. He married Lady Philippa 
Sidney, fourth daughter of Sir Robert, Earl of Leicester. She was born

mark, Queen to James I. She died in September, 1620, leaving a daugh- 
ter, Dorothy. After her death, Sir John married Lady Francis 
Edgerton, eldest of the eight daughters of the Earl of Bridgewater, Sir 
John Edgerton. She was born in 1603, and died in 1664, leaving one 
daughter. Lady Francis was a noble and pious woman of beautiful 
character, one whom her chaplain, Dr. Collinges, loved to describe as 
possessing nearly every virtue " and of such a prayerful disposition as to 
not consider that kneeling spoiled silk stockings." Sir JOHN died in 
1647, and his title and estate descended to his nephew, Sir John. 

HENRY HOBART, youngest son of Sir Henry and Dorothy (Bell) 
Hobart was born November 17, 16 19. Nothing further of him known. 

EDMOND HUBBARD (or Hobart) was born in 1614 (parents not 
ascertained) and lived at Holt, Norfolk. He was an eminent royalist, 
and Cromwell's soldiers drove him from his paternal estate. A coarricr 
named Ant. N. Richards kept him concealed in an outhouse for three 
days, and then he escaped to London and found employment in a shoe- 
maker's shop in Turnstile, Holborn, the shoemaker being apprised of 


his unfortunate condition and his identity. Once he was nearly detected 
"by the wife of one of Cromwell's soldiers, to whom he had been sent to 
fit with a pair of shoes. She noticed his very white hands, and archly 
asked him if he were not some cavalier rogue in disguise, saying such 
hands had never handled shoemaker's wax. He confessed to being an 
idle lazy fellow and unable to learn the trade, so his master kept him 
only to deliver orders and fit shoes; thus her suspicions were allayed. 
After his peril had passed he returned to Holt, taking his master with 
him and maintaining him while he lived. Edmond died in 1666 
aged 52. 

WILLIAM HUBBARD (or Hobart), the younger brother of Edmond, 
and supposed to be a descendent of Sir Henry, was born about 1620, 
and was also an extreme royalist. He was a leader in an insurrection- 
ary plot to restore Charles I., the wandering exile, to the throne again. 
He was apprehended in the midst of these designs and beheaded at the 
market cross, Norwich, Norfolk.

declared the throne vacant. He was Equerry, or Gentleman of the 
Horse, to King William, and attended him at the battle of the Boyne in 
Ireland, July 1, 1690, when William fought his father-in-law, James I. 
In 1698 he was put up again for re-election from Norfolk, but was 
defeated. In the excitement of the campaign he resented some words 
spoken to him by Oliver LeNeve, Esq., and a challenge and duel was the 


result, in which Sir HENRY passed his sword through LeNeve's arm, 
and he in turn ran his sword into Sir HENRY'S stomach, of which mor- 
tal wound he died August 21, 1698, and was buried at Thetford, Norfolk, 
while LeNeve was tried at Norwich March 16, 1699, and found guilty 
of manslaughter. Sir HENRY married the daughter of Joseph May- 
nard, Esq. She died August 22, 1701, leaving an only son, Sir John,

* The compiler has enjoyed the privilege of reading many of his letters that have been written to 
Hubbards in this country. Touching quite fully, as they generally did, upon the old country history 
of Hubbards, their origin, inherited traits, occupations, etc., they made pleasant and profitable read- 
ing, and induced frequent perusals. The Baron was always glad to respond promptly and fully to all 
enquiries upon subjects concerning the Hubbard race. He was an Honorary Member of the New 
England Society, instituted in New York City in 1805. His European business plants were numerous 
and of immense proportions, embracing in part print works at St. Petersburg, a bank at Moscow, and 
lumber interests in Finland. The present firm is known as John Hubbard & Co., St. Helen's Place, 
London, nearly opposite to the American Consulate, which name it has borne for many years.

Wherever virtue resists temptation, -wherever men meet death for religion's sake, wherever the 
gilded baseness of the world stands abashed before conscientious principle, there will be the spirit ot 
the Puritans— Edwin Percy Whipple. 

ROBERT HUBBARD was " marryed " to Margaret Allen the second 
day of June, 1654, by William Hibbins according; to the early re- 
cords of Boston. Children— Daniel (b May 9, 1655), and John (b May 
18, 1656). No further traces of this ROBERT HUBBARD or his chil- 
dren have yet come to light. [Douglas Hubbard records report that 
"he went to Dover, N. H., and his descendants settled in Maine."] 

HUGH HUBBARD was born in Derbyshire, England, about 1640, 
and came over and settled in New London, Ct., in 1670. March 18, 1673, 
he married Jane, daughter of Gary and Elizabeth (Masters) Latham 
(widow of Edmund Lockwood) of (1) Cambridge, Mass., (2) New Lon- 
don, Ct. In 1685 he died and his widow married John Williams. She 
died May 3, 1739, aged 91. Children (born in New London)— Mary 
(b Nov 17, 1674), Lvoia (b Feb 7, 1676), Margaret, Jane, Ann, and a 
son (who died in infancy, leaving none to progenerate the male line) 
were born later at unknown dates. 

ANTHONY HUBBARD was born in England (probably after 1620), 
and with his sister Ann came over and settled in Dedham, Mass., prior 
to 1638. April 14, 1648, he married Sarah, daughter of Michael Bacon, 
(reputed to have come from Ireland) one of Dedham's original found- 
ers, which began its official existence September 10, 1636. His wife died 
in 1652, and January 5, 1652-3, he married Jane Ely, possibly a relative 
of Nathaniel and Martha Ely of (1) Cambridge, Mass., (2) Hartford, Ct. 
He acquired no prominence and but little property. His estate amounted 
February 20, 1656-7 to but £9 and 10s. Children, born in Dedham, 
(by Sarah)— John (b Apl 14, 1649), and Abraham (b Mch 11, 1650, d 
Mch iS, 1650). 


ANN HUBBARD was born in England (probably before 1620), and 
came over with her brother Anthony and settled in Dedham, Mass. 
July 8, 1638, she married William Barstow (son of John of Cambridge) 
who, with his brother George, came to New England in 1636 on the 
ship Truelove from London and were of the original founders of the 
"Plantacion of Dedham." This marriage was the third one celebrated 
after the founding of the town. She joined the church in June, 1639. 
The " Barstows " reached som<- prominence during the early colonial 
period. This family afterward removed to Scituate, R. I., where Wil- 
liam Barstow died January 1, 1669. ANN (HUBBARD) BARSTOW 
then married John Prince, of Hull. Children (born in Dedham)— Jo- 
seph (b June 6, 1639), Mary (b Dec 28, 1641), Patienxf. (b Dec 3, 1643): 
(born in Scituate)— Sarah, Daughter, Deborah (b Aug, 1650), William 
(b Sep, 1652), and Martha (b 1655). 

WILLIAM HUBBARD was an inhabitant of Saugus (Lynn), Mass., 
Mch 28, 1637. Thomas Hubbard was also an inhabitant therebetween 1637 
and 1640; (also James Hubbard, who went to Long Island. See Graves- 
end, Long Island, Hubbards). WILLIAM and Thomas stopped awhile 
in Wethersfield, Ct., and then Thomas probably went to Hartford (see 
elsewhere under Early Settlers), while of WILLIAM but little has been 
learned. The Connecticut colonial records show, however, that he was 
plaintiff in a suit against Thomas Marshfield June 15, 1643; damages 
^12. In Hartford is a church record showing that a daughter, Sarah, 
was born to him July 10, 1647. Oct 11, 1659, it is recorded that he 
testified regarding " a colt." This lawsuit, in which he was concerned, 
took place within the jurisdiction of New Haven, so he had in all prob- 
ability removed from Hartford before this date. These meager facts 
are all that have yet been discovered of him. 

THOMAS HUBBARD was born in England in (?) 1625, and (>) 
sailed with William Hubbard for New England April 13, 1635, in the 
ship Elizabeth and Ann, Roger Cooper, master. In 1647 * he appears to 
have been in Hartford, according to the following extract from the Co- 
lonial Records: "September 2, 1547— f Tho: Hubbert for refusing to 

* It is quite probable that he was related to the Hubbards who settled in Cambridge, Mass. James 
Hubbard, of Watertown, had a son Thomas, as also had James of Cambridge. Yet he could hardly 
have been the son of either of these James', for they were apparently too young to be settling away 
from home. Milton, in his Church Records of Cambridge, mentions as having left there " THOMAS 
HUBBARD— Joined to the church at Weathersfield." [No date]. So whether he was related to tin >se 
Hubbards there or not, there is but little doubt that he lived awhile in Cambridge before arriving in 
Connecticut. [Douglas Hubbard records state that this Thomas was born in 1620 and that he was 
the son of James and Sarah (Ives) Hubbard of Watertown. The scanty and fragmentary records 
about him prevent conviction.] 

t Royal K.Hinman, historian, says (erroneously) that "THOMAS HUBBARD was licensed to 
trade for beaver in 1633 " in Weathersfield. George Hubbard of Middletown was probably meant. 


watch is fyned Xs." From Hartford he went to Middletown, and was 
made a freeman there May 21, 1657. Lands were conveyed to him Jan- 
nary 16, 1666, and March 22, 1670, his estate was valued at £61 in the 
inventory made of the property of all householders and proprietors. He 
married Mary Curtis, of Middletown, died in 167 1, and was buried in the 
Riverside Cemetery. His widow afterward in Oct, 1674, married Dea- 
con John Hall, Jr., an early settler of Middletown, recorder, b 1619 in 
England, d Jan 22, 1694, in Middletown, son of John and Anna (Wilcox) 
Hall who both came to New England in 1633. His epitaph shines in 
rhyme with his various virtues, viz.: 

" Here lyes our Deacon Hall, who studied peace with all. 
Was upright in his life, void of malignant strife, gone to his 
Rest, left us in sorrow, doubtless, his good works will him follow." 

Children (born in Middletown)— Mary (b Jan 3, 1656), Thomas (b

ELIZABETH HUBBARD (supposed to have been the consort of a 
son of James and Naomi (Cocke) Hubbard, of Mendlesham, Suffolk, 
England) came over with her brother-in-law Samuel, and his (?) brother 
Benjamin, and wife Alice (Ward), in October, 1633, and settled upon 
Charlestown Neck. She probably at that time was a widow, and died 
in January, 1643-4, at Boston, Mass., leaving an estate worth ^239 and 
1 S.S-. Her will, probated June 7, 1644, is, substantially, as follows: 

" The said Elisabeth Hobert being not well, & yet being in perfect 
sence and vnderstanding, do make this as my last will & testament: 
that my daughter Hannah Hobert & my sonne Benjamin Hobert, I do 
make them my whole executors joyntly, together of all those goods wch 
are mine, with this pro visor: my executors to pay three score & ten 
pounds & ten shillings to Hannah Carrington assoone as the goods can 
be sould. also to pay to the said Stocdell Carrington foure pounds & 
some odde money: also to my sonne Richard Hobert twelve pence. 
Also todau Hanner Hobert & to sonne Benjamin Hobert &to daughter 
Sarah Hobert & to daughter Rachell Hobert equal portions of what io 
left when all cost of chardges is paid. Youngest daughter Rachell to 
have three pounds more than the rest of my three children — that is to 
say, Hannah, Benjamin & Sarah. The executors to have a tender care 


of their youngest sister Rachell. Robert Hull & Thomas Clarke desired 
to be overseers of will, to see it fulfilled as neere as they can. 


" Witnes: Robert Hull, Thomas Clarke. Proved 4 7° M° 1644, before 
me, Samuell Symonds, & me, Increase Nowell." 

Children (born in England presumably) — Hannah, Benjamin, Sarah, 
Richard, Rachell. 

BENJAMIN HUBBARD, son of (?) James and Naomi (Cocke) Hub- 
bard of Mendlesham, Suffolk, England, was born in 1608, and with his 
wife Alice (Ward) Hubbard came to Boston in October, 1633, and set- 
tled upon Charlestown Neck. There is reason to believe that he was 
also accompanied by his brother Samuel and sister-in-law Elizabeth and 
her children, and that they all sailed from Gravesend, Eng., in August, 
1633, on the ship James, Grant, master. He was admitted to the church 
November 9, 1633, with his wife Alice, and made freeman September 
3, 1634. Of a dozen householders in Charlestown at that time he was 
one of them, and dignified with the title of respect of " Mr.," then only 
given to important personages in the colony, the less distinguished form 
of address being " goodman," or " yeoman." He was a conservative 
friend of the celebrated John Wheelwright, the religious agitator, who 
was afterward banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony (with the 
equally celebrated Ann Hutchinson) and located in Wells, Me. It is on 
record that he was clerk of the writs of Charlestown in 164 1 and was con- 
siderable of a scholar and navigator. He owned land in Charlestown in 
1637, viz: 10 acres on the Mystic side, a house and two lots southwest 
of Mill Hill, 51 acres at Waterfield, 1 acre at Eastfield, and land at 

December 22, 1644, he sailed for England, and landed at Deal, in 
Kent, where he met his elder brother Thomas. He afterward went to 
see his cousin, Joseph Hubbard, who lived in Ipswich, Suffolk. From 
London he wrote to New England to Governor Win throp in 1645 about 
his "invention concerning longitude." In 1652 he was a minister in 
Cobdock, Suffolk. March 8, 1654, he was living in Ardleigh, between 
Dedham and Colchester, Essex. During 1645, after his wife Alice had 
sold their house and one acre at Eastfield to John Green, she and their 
five children rejoined him in England. 

English records state that he died Oct 28, 1660, leaving widow Alice and 
five children. Before July, 1663, these five children (?) had returned to 
New England. Children (born in Charlestown, Mass) — Benjamin (b 
Mch 24, 1634, may have gone to Jamaica, L. I., in 1659), Ichabod (b Oct

JAMES HUBBARD, (?) son of James and Naomi (Cocke) Hubbard,* 
was born in 1609 in Suffolk County (probably Mendlesham), England. 
He may have been the James who sailed from London May 21, 1635, on 
the barque Mathew, Richard Goodladd, master, with his wife Sarah 
(Ives) Hubbard, nephew (?) Richard, children Sarah, James, and per- 
haps others. He settled in Watertown, Mass., and died there in Janu- 
ary, 1639. (His widow married William Hamlet afterward.) Children— 
James, Sarah, Thomas, and others, names unknown (see following). 

JAMES, the eldest (supposed) son, was born in England in 1631, and 
died in Cambridge, Mass., August 28, 1693. After his father's death hef 
removed to Cambridge, Mass., and Sep 29, 1659, married Sarah Win- 
ship. June 17, 1662, she bore him a daughter, Sarah (m Nicholas 
Bowes of Cambridge, Mass., June 26, 1684, and d Jan 26, 1688. Bowes 
was b in 1656 and d in Boston in 172 1, after being m to (1) Sarah Hub- 
bard (2), Dorcas Champney, and (3) Martha Remington). She then 
bore him Oct 20, 1665, Mary (m Jason Russel May 27, 1684, and had 
Hubbard Russet, b 1685, d June 4, 1726, who m and had children), and 
died in childbed Oct 22, 1665. JAMES was made freeman May 23, 
1666, and was one of Cambridge's tythingmen in 1679; he also served in 
the King Philip Indian War in Capt. Nathaniel Davenport's Company; 
and Jan 8, 1688, he married Hannah, daughter of Miles Ives, of Water- 
town, Mass., who after his death became his executor and residuary 
legatee. She died childless, but was a faithful mother to his step- 
children. The inscription upon her monument in the parish church 
yard at Cambridge adjoining Harvard University grounds reads: 

Here lyes buried Hannah Hubert, 

the loving wife of James Hubert, a tender and loving mother to his children; 

careful of their souls and bodies, 

loving and faithful, diligent and prudent, 

who departed this life in sweet peace the 24th day of 

November, 1690. 

* James and Naomi (Cocke) Hubbard, of Mendelsham, Suffolk, England, were the parents of ten 
children. Benjamin, James, Rachel, and Samuel came to America, but probably none of the others. 
Thomas, the eldest son, was born in 1604, and with his wife Esther lived in Freeman Lane, near 
Horsley,' down in Southwark, London. Sarah, the eldest daughter, married John Jackson, and lived 
in Yarmouth, Norfolk. She was born in 159:1 and had a son Robert, who served four years under 
Oliver Cromwell. Rachel married John Brandish, of Ipswich, Suffolk, England, and came to New 
England in 1633. They lived in Salem, Mass., Wethersfield, and Fairfield, Ct., and had children Mary 
(b in Ipswich, Eng., in 1628, and m Francis Purdy, of Fairfield, Ct.), John (b in Salem, Mass., in 1633, 
and lived awhile in Fairfield and then removed to Flushing, New Netherlands), Bethia (.b in Wethers- 
field, Ct., in 1637, m Timothy Knapp, of Greenwich, near Stamford, Ct.), and a posthumous son (b in 
1639 in Wethersfield). Rachel ^Hubbard) Brandish, after the death of her husband, married Anthony- 
Wilson, of Fairfield, Ct. The names of the other four children of James are unknown. 

t His own and wife's monument are yet standing in the old Cambridge Darish churchyard. This 
church was established in 1636. The monuments are of thick slate and have withstood time's ele- 
ments remarkably well, the inscriptions being quite legible. 


SARAH was born in England, and married at Billerica, Oct 13, 1657, 
Samuel Champney, of Cambridge, Mass. He was a representative from 
there in 1686, 1689 and 1692. Children— Samuel, Sarah, Mary, Esther, 
Samuel, Joseph, Richard and Daniel. 

THOMAS was born in Watertown, Mass., August 10, 1638. Nothing 
positively known of him. According to Milton (Church Records of 
Cambridge, Mass.) he went to Wethersfield, Ct. Milton says: "James 
Hubbard, Sarah Hubbard, now Champney, admitted into fellowship of 
the church; THOMAS HUBBARD now joined to the Church of 

SAMUEL HUBBARD, youngest son of James and Naomi (Cocke) 
Hubbard, was born in Mendlesham (a market town about eighty miles 
northeast of London), Suffolk County, in 1610. He arrived in Salem, 
Mass., in October, 1633, and probably came in the ship James, Grant, 
master, which left Gravesend, England, late in August, 1633, and arrived 
in Massachusetts Bay October 10, 1633. He says in his Diary,* " I was 
born of good parents. My Mother brought me up in the fear of the 
Lord, in Mendlesham, in catechiseing me and hearing choice ministers," 
&c. March 4, 1634-5, he was admitted a freeman, and shortly moved to 
Watertown, Mass., where he joined the church " by giving account of 
my faith." This same year he went to Dorchester (Windsor), Ct., with 
the overland migrators. He was married there by Mr. [Roger ?j Lud- 
low to Tacy Cooper, who was born in England in 1608 and came to 
Dorchester, Mass., June 9, 1634, and to Dorchester (Windsor), Ct., in 
1635. She had brothers Robert, of Yarmouth, Norfolk, and John of 
London, Eng. Robert returned to England from America in 1644. 
SAMUEL HUBBARD went to Wethersfield, Ct., in 1637, and May 10, 
1639, removed to Springfield, Mass., which he left for Fairfield, Ct, in 
1647, though staying there but a short time on account of church dis- 
agreements. SAMUEL was now with his wife imbibing freely and 
preaching ardently the doctrines of Anabaptism. He says in his diary: 
"God having enlightened both (but mostly my wife) into his holy 
ordinance of baptising only of visible believers, and being very zealous 
for it, she was mostly struck at, and answered two terms publicly, where 
I was said to be as bad as she, and sore threatened with imprisonment 
to Hartford jail, if not to renounce it or to remove: that scripture came 
into our minds: " If they persecute you in one place flee to another;" 
and so we did 2 day of October, 1648. We went for Rhode Island and 

* Copious notes were made from this diary by Dr. Isaac Backus, a Baptist historian of about 1777. 
These notes are now possessed by Ray Greene Hiding, of New Bedford, Mass., though the original 
diary and other valuable manuscripts of Samuel Hubbard disappeared about 1852. There are living 
descendants of this Samuel Hubbard through Bethiah Hubbard and Joseph Clarke of various names, 
but T"->ne of the name of Hubbard. 


arrived there the 1 2 day. I and my wife upon our manifestation of our 
faith were baptised by brother Joseph Clarke, 3 day of November, 


SAMUEL HUBBARD spent the remainder of his life in and about 
Newport, or " Mayford," as he termed it. He was a zealous Baptist and 
public religous disputant. For twenty-three years he belonged to the 
First Baptist Church of Newport, which sent him August 7, 1651, to 
Boston " to visit the bretherin who was imprisoned in Boston jayl for 
witnessing the truth of baptising believers only, viz: Brothers John 
Clarke, Obadiah Holmes, and John Crandall." In 1657 he went with 
Holme's on a preaching tour on Long Island. In 1664 he was appointed 
General Solicitor of the Colony. April 7, 1668, he went to Boston with 
Joseph Torrey and William Hiscox " to publicly dispute with those 
baptised there." December 23, 167 1, with his wife, one daughter, and 
four other persons he formed the first Seventh Day Baptist Church in 
America. In July, 1668, he wrote a letter to his cousin John Smith, of 
London, detailing his worldly possessions " through God's great mercy." 
In 1675 in his diary he refers to a " testament of my grandfather Cocke's,, 
printed in 1549, which he [Cocke] hid in his bed straw lest it should be 
found and burned in Queen Mary's days." In 1676 he corresponded 
with Dr. Edward Stennett, Pastor of the Seventh Day Baptist Church 
in Bell Lane, London. John Thornton and Roger Williams of Rhode: 
Island, and Governor Leete of Connecticut were his friends. He died be- 
tween '1688 and 1692, and his wife after 1697, but no traces of their burial 
places have been found. Children— Naomi (b Nov 18, 1637, at Wethers- 
field, Ct, d Nov 28, 1637), Naomi (b Oct 19, 1638, at Wethersfield, Ct, d

John, Bethiah, Mary, Susauah, Thomas and William), and Samuel (b in 
Newport Nov 30, 1649, d there unm Jan 20, 1670-1). 

THOMAS HUBBARD was born in 1653, but whether in England or 
America is unknown, but more probably in England. He settled in 
Boston and was there a merchant or trader, according to the records, 
which recite that in June, 1701, THOMAS HUBBARD, with others.. 


"merchants and traders," petitioned the deputy governor for a bank- 
rupt law, " as in England." The signs indicate that he was wealthy and 
prominent, of good family, and had the right to bear arms. He married 
Mary Tuthill, daughter of John and Mary (Holyoke) Tuthill, and sister 
to Lieut. Zechariah Tuthill of Boston (b 1669, d Jan 7, 1721), founder 
of Brattle Street Church and who was in charge of Castle William, Bos- 
ton Harbor. Her sister Sarah m Nov 12, 1702, James Gooch. Her 
sister Susannah m May 8, 1707, Abraham Blish. Her grandfather was 
Richard Tuthill, who sailed from London in Apl, 1635, in the ship 
Planter, owned land at Romney Marsh (Chelsea) and d May 8, 1640, 
leaving John (b 1625) who m Feb 10, 1647, Mary Holyoke. THOMAS 
HUBBARD (deacon) died in Boston Nov 7, 1717, and his widow Mary 
(Tuthill) Hubbard Aug 20, 1720. Both were buried in the Old Granary 
Burying Ground on Tremont Street in Lot 158. The immense brown- 
stone slab covering their tomb has on it a coat-of-arms said to be a Tut- 
hill coat. Of the inscription but little is now legible, though the greater 
part of the epitaph has been preserved in Thomas Bridgman's book of 
epitaphs. Her mother, brother Zechariah, and two children are also 
buried in this tomb. Of what church THOMAS HUBBARD was 
deacon could not be ascertained. In York County (Me) Book of Deeds 
there is mention made May 15, 17 13, of John Marion, Josiah Tay, and 
Thomas Hubbard, " Deacons of ye sd first Church in Boston " buying 
property there in trust for the church, of Ephraim Savage, administrator 
of the estate of Richard Wharton, late of Boston. This would appear 
to be this same Deacon THOMAS HUBBARD, and the " first Church " 
the one organized by Gov. John Winthrop, Thomas Dudley, John Wilson, 
and Isaac Johnson in 1632, corner State and Devonshire Streets, Boston. 
The fifth building succeeding from the original church now stands at 
the corner of Berkeley and Marlborough Streets and the denomination 
has become Unitarian. A search of these records, also of Old South 
Church and Old Christ Church (of Paul Revere fame) failed to show 
any data about this THOMAS HUBBARD. Much was discovered in 
the city records of his wife's ancestry, but none of his. From this we 
judge that his ancestors remained in England. Children — Zechariah

of Boston, Mass., on the site of the Blue Ball Tavern corner Hanover and TTnion Streets, opposite to the 
Old South Church. James went to England and returned from there in 1717 with a printing press 
and an outfit of letters. Dr. Increase Mather and the clergy drove him out of Massachusetts He

Hobart, or Horberd, etc.] appears on the Marblehead First Church rec- 
ords for the first time Oct 8, 1699, when he had a child baptized. 
There are no real estate transactions of record in his name in the county 
which might disclose his identity. He may have been of the Philip 
Hubbard (Kittery, Me.) branch, or the Richard Hubbard (Salisbury, 
Mass.) branch. The names Philip and Richard both appear in his fam- 
ily. Still, he may have been of neither line. He was probably a fish-

1756, his brother Benjamin, then in Philadelphia, forwarded to her the following letter of condolence : 

"Philadelphia, Feb. 23, 1750. 

" To Miss Elizabeth Hubbard, Boston : I condole with you. We have lost a most dear and valued 
relative. But it is the will of God and Nature that these mortal bodies be laid aside when the soul is 
to enter into real life. This is rather an embryo state— preparation for living. A man is not com- 
pletely born until he is dead. Why. then, should we grieve that a new child is born among the im- 
mortals—a new member added to then- happy society. 

"We are spirits. That bodies should be lent us while they can afford us pleasure, assist us in ac- 
quiring knowledge, or in doing good to our fellow creatures, is a kind and benevolent act of God. 
When they become unfit for their purposes, and afford us pain instead of pleasure, instead of an aid. 
become an encumbrance, and answer none of the intentions for which they were given, it is equally 
kind and benevolent that a way is provided by which we may get rid of them. Death is that way. 
We ourselves, in some cases, prudently choose a partial death. A mangled, painful limb, which can 
not be restored, we willingly cut off. He who plucks out a tooth parts with it freely, since the pain 
goes with it, and he who quits the whole body parts at once with all pains and diseases which it is 
liable to or capable of making him suffer. Our friend and we were invited abroad on a party of 
pleasure which is to last forever. His chaise is ready first, and he has gone before us. We could not 
all conveniently start together, and why should you and I be grieved at this, since we are soon to 
follow, and know where to find him ? Adieu, B.Franklin."

of Monmouth County, N. J. 

(Descended from James Hubbard of Gravesend, L. I.) 



pIsHefraii^oUMs^f Gravesend. 

Pride of ancestry is a natural and ennobling sentiment : and the man who does not feel it will 
contribute nothing of which posterity will be able to boast — Thomas Kinsella. 

JAMES HUBBARD, youngest of eleven children (four of whom were 
named William — born 1592 ; John — born 1598 ; Henry — born 1605, 
and Margaret), was born in 16 13, and was the son of Henry Hubbard 
(b 1570, yeoman, of Langham, Rutland County, England) and Margaret 
Hubbard. He arrived in America about 1637 and settled at Charles- 
town, Mass., where he owned " a house and lott." He soon, however, 
removed to Lynn, Mass. The colonial records, dated December 1, 1640, 
show that he was once tried for " assault," viz., " JAMES HUBBARD is 
discharged, the hurt being little and done unwiting, the other presseing 
upon him." In the Salem Court, 1640-41, he was a juryman, being sued 
also in that court in 1642-43. In 1643 his property in Charlestown was 
deeded to R. Lowden and Thomas Wilder through his attorney, Edward 
Tomlyns. About this period he removed to Long Island with many 
other families holding anabaptist and other religious doctrines odious to 
the rulers of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Among these migrators 
was a famous and beautiful lady of high rank, remarkable virtues and 
noble Christian character, Lady Deborah Moody,* accompanied by her 
son. Sir Henry Moody. She, her son, Ensign George Baxter, and Ser- 
geant JAMES HUBBARD were granted land December 19, 1645, where 
is now the town of Gravesend. This town was laid out by JAMES 
HUBBARD, " a surveyor by trade," who in January, 1648, was elected 
" scout," a position at that belligerent period of considerable importance. 
This action was because he was " a man as had been seen of great 
respectability and influence." He owned a " plantation lot " in Graves-

Garesden, Wiltshire, who was created Baron in 1621-22, and died in 1632. 




end, but how much other land is unknown, though it is known that he 
had " 176 acres at the head of Fresh Kil, on Staten Island." His Long 
Island land was obtained from the Indian Chief " Pamamora," and the 
confirmation* of this patent by Governor Richard Nicholls of New York 
was made out to " J E AMES HUBBARD, John Brown, Job Tilton, Jr., 
Richard Stout and William Goulding-," and recorded at Albany, X. Y., 
Feb. 25, 1664-5. An additional confirmation* was given by Governor 
Francis Lovelace July 1, 1670, who appointed as commissioners to report 
title " Mathias Nicholls, JEAMES HUBBARD, Jacques Cortelyou, 
Elbert Elbertson and Elias Doughty." 

JAMES HUBBARD was termed " Sergeant," and Apl 12, 1646, John 
Underhill sued him for" hireing his servant man ;" in 1650-1-3 he was a 
magistrate for Gravesend, Kings Co., L.-I. February 20, 1653, he sold 
by his agent and assignee, Daniel King, of Lynn, merchant, for £S, 
eleven acres of land to Allen Bread, of Lynn, Mass., husbandman. 
November 26, 1653, he represented Gravesend at New Amsterdam " to 
devise and recommend measures for the public security, and to put a 
stop to the piracies and robberies of one Thomas Baxter." History 
says also that " he rebelled with a George Baxter and Grover, July 27, 
1655, against the Dutch authorities and was imprisoned." Apl 18, 1663, 
proceedings were begun by the " Town of Utrecht against James 
Hubbard for trespass." December 10, 1663, he was a delegate to a 
meeting " to represent the state of the country to the authorities in 
Holland, Europe," also held at New Amsterdam. He frequently clashed 
with the Dutch Governor, and it was generally the personal influence of 
Lady Deborah Moody that permitted him to retain public office. He 
endeavored at one time to enlist the protection of Connecticut as an 
Englishman, to guard his rights, was thus recognized and made " Com- 
missioner " from that Colony May 12, 1664, together with Mr. William 
Wilkins, both of " Graves-inn." In 1654 he was the town assessor. " In 
1655 he had a wife Martha." No record of any issue. December 31, 
1664, he married Elizabeth Bailes (or Bayles), who died in Gravesend in 
1693. JAMES is supposed to have died before that time. Children— 
James (see following), Rebecca (b Apl 28, 1667), Elizabeth (b June 3, 
1669), John (b Mch 20, 1670, was living in Gravesend in 1695), Elias (b

1676, widow of Jan Barentze Van Driest), Samuel, supposed son (b May

Mrs. Judge Charles H. Conover, of Freehold, N. J., has proven the historian and genealogist. 
Tennis G. Bergen (deceased), to have been in error in chronicling JAMES, son of James and Rachel 
(Bergen) Hubbard and grandson of James and Elizabeth (Bayles) Hubbard, as the progenitor of this 
branch of the Long Island Hubbards. She possesses the will of James Hubbard who married Rachel 
Bergen. It is dated Jan 30, 1718, and was probated in 1723. It leaves one-half to his wife Rachel and 
the other half in trust to his son James. His brothers Elias and Samuel are named the executors. 
After the death of his son JAMES this half is. to revert to his (son JAMES) sister Mary, wife of John 
Wall, if living; if dead, to her daughters, Williampe. Rachel and Mary Wall. There is no mention 
whatever in the will of any other children or grandchildren. From the fact that the son's share was 
left in trust with no provision for possible issue by him, it is conjectured that he was an imbecile. If 
that deduction is correct, this branch then expired in the male line, and the present generations of 
Long Island Hubbards descended through one of the brothers of James Hubbard who married Rachel 
Bergen. These brothers were named John, Elias and Samuel, and Elias was in all probability the one.

There is a moral and philosophical respect for our ancestors which elevates the character and im- 
proves the heart— Daniel Webster. 

WILLIAM HULBERD (Hulbard Hulbert. Hulburt, Hulburd, etc.), came from England (Northum- 
berland County?) to Dorchester, Mass., and applied for freemanship Oct. 19, 1630— made freeman 
Apl 3, 1632. (The compiler of the Thomas Hurlbut— Saybrooke, Ct., 1635 -Genealogy discovered no 
relationship between this Thomas and William.) He lived in Dorchester until 1635-6, when he sold 
out and removed to Windsor, Ct. He there lived on "Backer Row" until the Pequot War of 1637, 
when he, for consideration of safety, moved into the "public palisado." Land was apportioned to 
him in 1640. By his first wife (no record) he had John (see following), William (m (1) Ruth Salmon (2) 
Mary Howard), Hannah (lived in Northampton, New Haven, and died in Enfield, Ct.), Abigail (no re- 
cord), Sara (b July 10, 1647), and Anna (bap Mch 17, 1648-9). In April, 1648, Samuel Allen died and 
WILLIAM HULBERD married his widow, who had Samuel, Nehemiah, John, Rebecca, Mary (d y), 
and Obadiah Allen. In 1657 he removed to Northampton, Mass., and there died in 1694. His eldest 
(?) son— 

JOHN HULBERD married in 1671 Mary Baker (d 1707), and died in 
17 13. Children — John (see following), James (d y), Samuel (d unm 
in 1748), Mary (m 1711 Thomas Ponder of Westfield, Mass.), and James 
(m 1732 Mary Ganston, d 1767 in Northampton, and had Mary b 1733, 

fames b 1735, John b 1737, m Susannah , and Hepzibah b 1740). 

His eldest son — 

JOHN HULBERD was born in 1676 and died in 1737. Hemarried 

Ruth , who died March 27, 1720. Children — Daniel (supposed 

son — see following). 

DANIEL HULBERD, the supposed son of John and Ruth Hulberd, 
was adopted by Thomas Ponder and Mary (Hulberd) Ponder of "West- 
field, Mass., and was born in 17 14 in Westfield, where in 1736 he mar- 
ried Naomi Root. In 1759 he removed to Pittsfield, Mass., where he was 
generally known as Captain DANIEL HUBBARD. The change in the 
spelling from Hulberd or Hulburd to HUBBARD now takes place, and 
for what reason can not at this late period be determined. Correct 
spelling was not then deemed of much importance. His children bore 
the name " Hubbard " thereafter. He was a surveyor, Revolutionary 


War soldier, one of the orignal eight members of the Pittsfield Church 
(organized in 1763), and died of "camp fever and hard labor." It is 
claimed that all his four sons and five sons-in-law were Revolutionary 
soldiers. Two of his sons, Capt. Danif.l, Jr., and Lieut. James Hub- 
bard, with their wives, are buried in Pittsfield Cemetery. There also is 
buried DANIEL and his wife. A handsome marble shaft in " Saints 
Rest " is thus inscribed: " This monument is erected in memory of 
Capt DANIEL HUBBARD, who died December 19, 1777, in the 64th 
year of his age; also Mrs. Naomy, his relict, who died January 29, 1800, 
aged 82. They were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their 
death they are not divided."

Happy and innocent were the ages of our forefathers, who ate herbs and parched corn, drank the 
pure stream, and broke their fast with nuts and roots -Jeremy Taylor, D. D. 

JOHN HUBBARD* first appears as an inhabitant of Boston, Mass. 
about 1670. The records read: "John Hubert of Boston removed 
to Roxbury." Military records show that a " John Hubbard of Roxbury 
was in Capt. Isaac Johnson's Company in the King Philip Indian War," 
period of 1675-76. He had a wife Rebecca (Wells?) who, Feb 17, 1683, 
" confessed her sin and repentance and faith in Christ: was reed to full 
comunion and baptized." They were both members of Rev. John 
Eliot's (the Indian apostle's) church of Roxbury, Mass. April 13, 1684 
(after their removal to Roxbury), their daughters Rebecca and Rachel 
were baptized. They were then, probably, good-sized children. Sep- 
tember 21, 1684, a daughter, Sarah, was baptized. April 11, 1686, Mary 
and five children of other families were baptized. July 21, 1686, about 
forty of Roxbury's citizens left that place and founded New Roxbury, 
afterward called Pomfret, then Woodstock, or " Mashamequet." This 
town remained under Massachusetts jurisdiction ttntil 1794. Here, May 
3, 1689, a son, John Hubbard, Jr, was born. In 1707 JOHN HUB- 
BARD, Sr, and family removed to the northern half of Woodstock, and 
further traces of him and his wife Rebecca are lost. He was one of the 
original proprietors of Pomfret— none of whom could be under 1 9 years 
of age by covenant entered into — and was assigned " lot 21." Children — 
Rachel (bap Apl 13, 1684, m Apl 9, 1690, John Holmes of Woodstock, 
this being the first marriage in the town), Rebecca (bap Apl 13, 1684, m

between Canterbury and Mortlake, and subsequently became Brooklyn, 
Ct. He was a member of the Second Church in 1731. Children — Ben-

WILLARD, eldest son of Benjamin and Susannah (Cady) Hubbard, 
was born in Brooklyn, Ct, Nov 10, 1737, and died in 1813 of pneumonia. 
He married July 20, 1767, Lucy Starr (b 1727, d 1815), youngest daugh- 
ter of Samuel Starr of Norwich, Ct, and Annie (Bushnell) Starr. Phil- 


anthropic people in England became interested in and attempted the 
evangelization of the Mohican Indians, and WILLARD HUBBARD 
was chosen their missionary and teacher, with headquarters at Mont- 
ville, Ct, where, about 1667, a church and school-house were erected. 
Sampson Occum, a Mohican, was educated and ordained in England and 
preached a sermon before the Queen of George III. He then returned 
to America and assisted Mr. HUBBARD in his labors. Good results 
were becoming visible when the Revolutionary War interrupted and 
ended their efforts, and Mr. HUBBARD and his accomplished wife 
returned to Brooklyn and re-commenced teaching school, which he con- 
tinued until 1798. He and his wife were well endowed with intellectual 
gifts, of spiritual temperaments, quite orthodox, and well fitted for their 
vocation. Children — Simeon (b Sep 10, 1769, d Mch 6, 1771), Simeon

The subjoined ilata. taken from the town records of Brooklyn, Ct— Brooklyn was set off from 
Pomfret and Canterbury— cannot be connectedly attached to this line of Hubbards by the compiler at 
tin place where it belongs, but is considered worth printing, nevertheless: " Calvin Hubbard married 
Sarah Derby November 10. 1778 [d ? 1781]. Children— Filena,* born January 6, 1780: Calvin,* born De-

The following data lias been copied from a " tree " prepared by Douglas Hubbard. The compiler 
cannot determine where it should be attached to this line, if of this line: "Children of John and

There is but little that can be given of this Hubbard Branch that is of a satisfactory nature. The 
comDiler upon visiting: Virginia found genealogical records illy kept. None i if the descendants pos- 
any preserved lines of their own descent, and knowledge of their forefathers was hazy 
indeed. But few church parishes ever pretended to keen records of births, deaths, or marriages : and 
town records, which possibly might have shed genealogical light the compiler found had been carried 
lyed by the ravages of war. 
?re-ent generation of Hubbards in Virginia use but one "b " in their name, some pronounc- 
ing it Hu-bard and others Hub-ard. An inspection of the early land grants discli ised several forms • if 
spelling. James Hub-ard. i if Nels >n County, had a book-plate copy of a coat of arms with the wife's 
shield impaled with the husbands upon the wrong (dexter) side of the escutcheon, which bore the 
motto, - - Fidelis.'" and which was surmounted with the crest Sagittarius. This was not duly 

authenticated, though showing some points of similarity to the "Hobart " Coat of Buckinghamshire

research attended with vexations difficulties and a considerable expenditure i if time and money. He 
unearthed in Richmond, however, in the land office, the following information regarding some early 
land grants, which is herewith given to enable any future Hubbard students in genealogy to start off 
with acuiate clues. The spelling of the names is given as found in the records

* This date (1760) ends the land grants made to Hubbards. It will be noticed that the later gran- 
tees' names were spelled "Hubbard," though the former ones were distorted into almost unrecog- 
nizable forms. Still there is no question that in all cases " Hubbards " were meant. It is barely pos- 
sible that owing to the close connection the following name had with " Hubbard " records, this per- 
son may have been also a "Hubbard." "April 25, 1703, Edwd Hobday was gr. 263 acres in King and 
Queen Co." There were various other names mentioned in many of these grants which were not

Mississippi; many more located in the region of Stokes and Gilmore 
counties, N. C, a few being Quakers and intermarrying freely with this 
sturdy sect. Many of them were opposed to slavery and even suffered 
persecution in preaching its unholiness. 

There is a record or tradition of a JOSEPH HUBBARD, Quaker, 
who came to America with William Penn and settled with him at Phila- 
delphia in 1681, but afterward removed into Virginia and North Carolina. 
Among other children, he had a son Jeremiah, who preached the Quaker 
or doctrine of the " Friends " to the inhabitants of North Carolina. The 
data of the descent from JOSEPH and Jeremiah of families now living 
bearing the Hubbard name is quite imperfect and can not here be given 
with regard for accuracy. It is quite possible the following genealogical 
scraps spring from these ancestors: Rev. Jeremiah Hubbard, descended 
from this Joseph Hubbard; and a missionary among the Indians at 
Afton, Indian Territory, and publisher of The Indian Moccasin, writes 
that JOSEPH HUBBARD married Ann Crews, a half-breed Cherokee, 
and by her had Hardy, Jeremiah, Jacob, Woodson, Joseph, Rhoda, 
Susannah and Anna. Hardy had Joseph and Caleb. 

Another account relates that about the middle of the eighteenth cen- 
tury there existed one GEORGE HUBBARD, who lived at White Oak 
Swamp Monthly Meeting, Va., and who died after 1789. He had a wife, 
Judith, who died before this date. They had a son John (b July 30, 
1752, d Mch 27, 1834, in Deep River, N. C), who removed to Deep 
River, N. C, in 1789. About 1778 he married Martha Sanders (sup- 
posed), daughter of Hezekiah Sanders, of Stokes Co., N. C. wShe, it is 
supposed, according to tradition, was thought to have had Cherokee 
Indian blood in her veins. At any rate his father opposed this mar- 
riage and disinherited him, which caused his removal to North Caro- 
lina, where he became an influential and upright citizen and a leading 
member of the Friend's Church at Deep River. By her he had eight 
children, two of the daughters being married to Elias Henley, of N. C. 
Children — Susannah (b Apl 24, 1780), Elizabeth (b Sep 12, 1781),^//// (b 
Mch 29, 1784, d July 19, 1807, in Deep River), George (see following), 
Jane (b July 24, 1788, d Mch 7, 1825, in Deep River), Martha (b July 6, 
1791, d Mch 10, i85i,in Deep River), Judith (b Mch 24, 1794, d abt i860 
in Ind), John (b Sept 12, 1796, d in 1856 near Wabash, Ind, kicked by a

of Nantucket, Mass., and had Susannah, Martha, and other daughters, 
and sons, Thomas D., of Lawrence, Kas., and William G., of Columbus, 
Ohio, lecturer, and publisher of temperance literature. John was a 


strong- abolitionist, and in the Spring of 1844 he was compelled to leave 
Deep River for the Northwest by the slaveholders, which he did upon 
horseback, his family following him in the ensuing Fall), and Sarah (b 
Dec 26, 1798, d Sep 11, 1825, in Deep River). John then married a 
niece of his first wife in 1804, one Sarah Patterson, of Muddy Creek 
Meeting, Stokes County, N. C, and had Jemima (b in Deep River Feb 
25, 1805, d 1880 in Kansas, m Eli Vestal and lived awhile in Plainfield, 

GEORGE — b Apl 14, 1786, in Virginia, d in Monrovia, Ind., in 1870. 
He was a man of firm and upright character, of amiable disposition, and 
enjoyed the eventful experiences of pioneer life. He first settled in 
Wayne County but removed afterward to Morgan County, and was also 
a member of the Friends Church. About 1806 he married Nancy 
Shields, of N. C. Children— Martha (b in Guilford 1808, d in Mon-

Monrovia, Ind. He was a pioneer of Morgan County, N. C, and out of 
the green woods developed a fertile farm. His word was received as 
his bond, and he belonged to the Friends Church. In, or about 1832, 

he married Ludah Vestal (d 1863-4), dau of Dr. Benjamin and

Another branch of the Virginia Hubbard vine of which we possess 
but meager information regarding its American beginning starts with 
DANIEL CAMPBELL HUBBARD, who was born in Maryland (?) 
Dec 23, 1746, and died after 1776 in Pittsylvania County, Va. He mar- 
ried in Maryland Sarah Filpot (bjan 5, 1756), and had a daughter and 
a son Moses (see following). 

MOSES — b Aug 17, 1776, removed with his parents to Pittsylvania 
County, Va., near head of Banister Creek, and married Elizabeth 
Hodges (b Aug 17, 1777). They had five daughters and sons Daniel Per- 
kins (see following), John Nicholas (who removed to Warren Co., Mo, 
with his family), Barton (who settled in Lincoln Co., Mo, with his 
brother Harrison), Harrison and Josiah (who migrated to St. Charles

There was also a WILLIAM HUBBARD, b abt 1730, who had a son

There is said to have been a Col. BENJAMIN HUBBARD who came 
direct from England, settled in King William County and married Mary 
Todd (b 1747). Among other children he had Ann, who married Col. 
James Taylor, of the War of the Revolution, and a member of the Vir- 
ginia House of Burgess. [This tradition, as sent in by a descendant,

i, ^ ^ f, ^JiBP f Salisbury, Mass. 

God sifted a whole nation that He might send choice grain into the wilderness- William 

Eaton's History of Candia, N. H. (published at Manchester, N. H., in 1852), gives an account, 
among those of other early settlers, of the entree into America of the progenitor of this branch of New 
England Hubbards. It reads as follows: " In the good old days of yore, says tradition, there was born 
in England one RICHARD HUBBARD, probably of a family in easy circumstances, if not wealthy. 
An uncle, living in France, offered to make RICHARD his heir. Accordingly, his passage was paid 
across the channel by his father. But fortune had determined otherwise than that he should become 
a citizen of France, where his descendants might have lost their heads in the chances of revolutii m. 
The captain of the vessel proving to be a rogue, our young voyager was carried to the West Indies 
and sold for his passage money. There he was bound an apprentice to a blacksmith. After serving 
his time, the New World— then the El Dorado of all adventurous spirits— attracted his attention, and 
he came to Boston He was there married and had two sons, one of whom moved to Salisbury, 
Mass. * * * " 

HOW much of the foregoing version is true and how much mythical 
it would be hard at this late date to determine in the absence of well- 
authenticated records. From what source Mr. F. B. Eaton derived this 
account is not known. He says " tradition ". If it were a family tra- 
dition it is entitled to a little weight, but if simply a promiscuous tra- 
dition of the town, but little reliance ought to be placed upon it. The 
account is probably in error in stating that two sons were born in Bos- 
ton. The Salisbury records show that they were all born in Salisbury* 

* There is some room for belief, however, that this RICHARD HUBBARD of Salisbury was born 
about 1043 and was the son of an earlier Richard who came into New England and may have been the 
Richard mentioned in a work edited by John Camden Hotten and published in London in 1874. It was 
compiled from records in London, and is entitled "The Original Lists of Persons of Quality," who 
left that port between 1600 and 1700. The extract relating to Richard Hubbard thus reads: " May 21- 
1635-Theis under written are to be transportd to St. Christophers, imbarqued in the Mathew, of Lon- 
don, Richard Goodladd, Mr. per warrant from ye Earl of Carlisle: James Hubbard, age 27; Richard 
Hubbard age 18 [and others]." The '-James Hubbard " mentioned may have been " Jamesof Water- 
town, Mass.." who died there in 1639 (see Early Hubbard settlers). [Since the foregoing was pre- 
pared the compiler finds data in some Douglas Hubbard manuscripts which may be in the main cor- 
rect ro means remaining now for discovering the source from winch the late Douglas Hubbard 
secured his information. He records that " RICHARD HUBBARD, b about 1620, from Surrey County, 



Before going to Salisbury it appears that he lived awhile in Dover, N. 
H. Dover records show' that " Dec. n, 1658, RICHARD HUBBARD 
was not taxed." He may have had a brother; there was a " Mr. Hu- 
bard " mentioned in Exeter, N. H., town records May 4, 1636; also in 
1667 "Captain Hubbard and Josiar Hubbard." July 26, 1669, Jeremiah 
Hubbard of Portsmouth, N. H., was witness to a deed from " ffrancis 
Champnowne to Abraham Corbett, both of Kittery, Me." He married 
Martha Allen (b in Salisbury in 1646, d there Oct. 4, 17 18), dau of 
William and Ann* (Goodale) Allen, and is spoken of as a man of influ- 
ence and property, being styled " Mr." then a title of some importance 
and only worn by authority. In 1690 he was made freeman, and in 
1694-5 he represented Salisbury in the General Court. For some years 
he lived in Boston on Fort Hill, removing there in 1697. This residence 
he gave to his son Joseph March 24, 1706, or rather at that time what 
he termed in the deed as the " Easternmost part or End of our now 
Dwelling hous." To all of his sons and daughters during the latter 
years of his life he gave away much of his landed property, some of it 
being located in Amesbury, Mass. He died in Salisbury — " Mr. RICH- 
ARD HUBBARD departed this life June ye 26th, 17 19." Children (all 
born in Salisbury — Mary (b Jan 19, 1667, m Nov 17, 1686, Tobias Lang-

The compiler found nothing in Ins investigations showing the existence of this earliest Richard, 
his son Jeremiah and his descendants, yet it could all be easily missed by him, and no time now re- 
mains for him to verify its accuracy. The late Douglas Hubbard must have certainly found some- 
thing as a basis for these statements.

B 3 THOMAS — b in Boston, Mass, Aug 4, 1702, d there July 14, 1773. 
THOMAS, like his father, Joseph Hubbard, "blacksmith," was taught 
a trade, that of "brazier." He owned a brazier's establishment at the 
head of the " Towne Dock ", Boston, as late as June 30, 1749. He grad- 
uated from Harvard College in 1721, and from 1750 to 1773 was its 
Treasurer.* April 9, 1739, he was elected deacon of the famous Old 
South Church, Boston, and held that position until he resigned Jan 23, 
1764. He held also many other positions of trust, being Indian Com- 
missioner to treat with the Indians at Fort St. George (now Warren, 
Me.), a member of the Boston Council, Speakerf of the Legislature, and 
also a large landholder or " proprietor " of many surrounding towns, 
notably Sheepscott (York Co. Me.), Damariscotta, Princetown, Hub- 
bardstown (named after him), and Royalston, being Treasurer of the 
latter town. Dec 8, 1737, he bought of the executors for ^600 the 
Leonard Vassall mansion (afterward appraised at ^1,000) on Summer 
Street, formerly owned by Simeon Stoddard, where he resided until 
his death. An early map of Boston shows the location of this mansion. 
A long obituary of him appears in the Massachusetts Gazette, dated 
Boston July 26, 1773. The following is an extract from it: "But if 

* His portrait hangs in Memorial Hall, Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass. It was executed 
by John Singleton Copley, a very famous gentleman of the brush in those days, and shows him as a 
pleasant, smooth-faced gentleman, largely bald, dressed in gown and university habit, with the 
Treasurer's keys lying upon a table beside him. His headgear resembles a Turkish turban, and is not 
of college distinction. Many of Copley's portraits have this odd-looking covering on the heads of his 
subjects. It seemed to be a "fad" of his. Thomas Hubbard's successor was John Hancock, who 
made a poor college treasurer, though a distinguished patriot and gifted statesman. 

tMay 14,1751, Hon. James Allen, Mr. John Tyng, Mr. Harrison Gray, and the Hon. THOMAS 
HUBBARD were electecURepresentatives. The three first-named gentlemen had 253, 263, and 300 votes 
respectively, but Mr. HUBBARD had "a great majority.' " 


there was any one Virtue more conspicuous in this good Man than an- 
other, it seems to have been the Charity and Liberality of his Heart; 
a more soft and tender, a more sympathizing or more liberal Disposi- 
tion, no Man perhaps ever experienced. * * * His House was a 
Temple of Hospitality: Oft did fill the Hands of the Indigent, oft wipe 
away the Tears of Poverty, and Distress, and how often has he caused 
the Widow's Heart to sing for Joy." In (?) Lot 70, Old Granary Burying- 
ground on Tremont Street he was buried. A bluestone sculptured tab- 
let on the tomb close enough to be touched by the hand from the street 
shows in strong relief a Hubbard coat-of-arms, surmounted by a knight's 
head, and over all a griffin's head.* A fac simile of his signature: 

His will dated June 21, 1773, probated July 23, 1775, makes many 
charitable bequests. To Harvard College is given ^300 and such 
books in his library as Dr. Andrew Eliot and Samuel Cooper may select; 
to my wife " all my negroes, plate, household furniture, chariots, chaises, 
and other carriages, horses, provisions, liquors, and other such like 
articles, my mansion house, stables, and outhouses, situate on Summer 
Street, so called, in sd Boston, and after her death to my daughter Sarah 
Fayerweather and son-in-law William Blair Townsend." He bequeaths 
to his pastors Rev Mr. Hunt and Rev Air John Bacon ^50 each; to the 
Old South Church ^100; to the deacons of Second South Church ^200 
for the " use of the poor of this sd Town of Boston;" to Elizabeth Green 
^30. He further mentions Thomas Hubbard Townsend, Mary Board- 
man, and Sarah Fayerweather. Executors: Wife Mary Hubbard, and 
sons-in-law William Blair Townsend and Thomas Fayerweather. He 
married Sep 10, 1724, Mary Jackson (d Feb 15, 1774), dan of Edward 
and Mary Jackson. (Some historians give her father as Jonathan Jack- 
son, who was a brazier of Boston.) Children (all bap in Old South

* In 1756 and thereafter he is mentioned in legal instruments as an " esquire." There then exist- 
ing a certain punctiliousness in the bestowal of titles it argues that he was either knighted between 
1749 (when he was called " brazier," and later on "merchant ") and 1756, or else he possessed a hered- 
itary right to the honor as eldest son of Joseph Hubbard, which honor the colonists sometimes allowed 
to languish. Probably the latter construction is the best one, as the " coat " on his torn!) resembles 
the one granted May 19. 1575, to Edward Hubbard of Burchanger, Eng., in so far as coats sculptured 
in stone can be made to resemble printed drawings, the architectural coat being of course minus 
many of the finer details. The writer does not assert positively that Hon. THOMAS was here 
buried. Harvard College records were searched, but no traces ot his burial place could be found. 
There was another and earlier Deacon Thomas Hubbard (b 1653, d 1717), and some of his descendants 
who were buried also in this cemetery in Lot 158 (see Early Settlers). This Deacon Thomas Hubbard 
also has a coat-of-arms on his tomb; and had a wife Mary, daughter Mary, and son Thomas, and yet 
they both appear to be of entirely different family lines, notwithstanding these coincident

THE United States Military Academy at West Point, N. Y., has had 
but one Hubbard graduate. Lieut. ELMER WILCOX HUB- 
BARD, U. S. A., of Connecticut, enjoys this solitary distinction. He was 
born in Cromwell, Ct., Sept. 27, 1861; entered West Point July 1, 1881; 
graduated thirteenth from the top in a class of thirty-nine June 13, 1885; 
commissioned 2d Lieut. June 14, 1885, and assigned to the 1st Artillery; 
promoted 1st Lieut. June 13, 1892, and transferred to the 3d Artillery. 
He is the only son of Daniel Roberts and Lucetta Mildrum (Wilcox) 
Hubbard, and comes of " fighting blood," his ancestors having partici- 
pated in the Revolutionary War and his father in the late civil war (see 
Abridged Descent Line). 

Lieut. HUBBARD has seen frontier service, having been stationed at 
Fort Canby, Wash., and at the Presidio, San Francisco, Cal., since re- 
ceiving his commission. August 28, 1889, he was detailed for duty at 
West Point as Instructor Professor of Chemistry, Mineralogy, and 
Geology. August 17, 1893, he rejoined his regiment at Fort McPherson, 
Ga. April 2, 1892, he married Adele Louise Constans, of Alsace, and 
has one child, Ruth, b May 15, 1893.

PHILIP HUBBARD came from the Parish of St. Saviour in the 
Isle of Jersey, one of the Channel Islands situate in a very deep 
indentation at the mouth of the English Channel and close to the French 
coast. The language spoken there is Norman-French, though it has been 
an English possession since William* the Conqueror, Duke of Nor- 
mandy, defeated Harold the Saxon at Hastings and ascended the 
English throne in 1066. St. Saviour is one of the twelve parishes of 
Jersey, its western boundary line running close to the Capital of the 
Island, St. Helier, an ancient town whose foundations were laid in the 
dusky ages of Gallic barbarism during the sixth century. 

PHILIP HUBBARD probably sailed from the bay of St. Aubin with 
his brother Joseph, who died in Maine April 1, 1701. Joseph's will is as 
follows : 

In the name of God, Amen ! I, JOSEPH HUBART, of the Parish of St. Sover, on the Island of 
Jearsey, but now in New England, * * * will and bequeath to my Loving Brother Phillip Hubart 
of Kittery, in the county of Yorke in New England, with whom I have lived, and by whom I have 
bin Provided for and Maintained ever since my Coming to New England; All my Estate, Real and 
Personal. That doth belong to me, even my whole Title & Interest to any Estate or part of an Estate 
in any wise pertaining to me in any part of the World, and Particularly a Tract of Land or a Field 
Scituate in the Parish of St. Sover in Jearsey, lately in the Possession of my Brother John Hubart of 
Sd Parish, to him, his Heirs, or assigns forever. * * * I set my hand and Seal Mch 24, 1701. 
JOSEPH HUBART. [seal] Witnesses: Daniel Stone, Jonathan Stone, John Wade. Recorded Apl 
21, 1701. Inventory returned June 16, 1701, at £3. 00. 10. 

The time of arrival of these two brothers in New England is unknown, 
though in a written instrument it is stated that PHILIP was " sometime 

* William (b 1024 in Falaise, Normandy, France) had Danish blood in his veins, being sixth in de- 
scent from Rollo the Dane, who conquered and settled Normandy with his followers about 885. He 
was named after Rollo's son, William Longsword. His mother was Harlette, or Harleve, dau of Ful- 
bert, a tanner of Falaise, and his father was Robert, Duke of Normandy, who barefooted and bare- 
headed made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem to expiate his sins. 


of ye Island of Jersey." Probably they were unmarried upon their 
arrival, as no mention is made by Joseph of wife or children. The 
records of Kittery and Berwick furnish the following- scraps of mis- 
cellaneous information about PHILIP HUBBARD: 

July 5, 1698, PHILIP HUBBARD was fined 20 shillings (afterwards 
remitted) by the court of Sessions of the County of York for delinquency 
in not appearing as a grand juryman. March 30, 1702, he was chosen 
constable. Feb. 2, 1702-3, he is mentioned as selectman of the Parish 
of Berwick, and presented a bill at the next meeting of 15 shillings 
" for work upon the meeting-house." Berwick was set off from Kittery 
and incorporated as a parish in 1701 or 1702, and as a town in 17 13. At 
a meeting of selectmen Jan. 5, 1707, at Berwick, it was ordered that 
^145 and 15 shillings be paid towards the building of the meeting-house 
to " Philip Hobood," treasurer of the parish — " Daniel Emery, clerk." At 
a legal town meeting held at Berwick, Aug. 5, 17 13, he was again elected 
selectman and town treasurer for the year ensuing, also surveyor of 
highways. Shortly after this he died, as the town meeting of March 15, 
1713-14, elected John Hooper his successor. "Voted — the present 
treasurer, John Hooper, is empowered to account with the administra- 
tors of Mr. Philip Hubbard, the late treasurer, deceased," etc. He was, 
judging from the offices he held, one of the foremost citizens of Kittery 
and Berwick. Dec. 22, 1692, he married Mrs. Elizabeth (Goodwin) 
Emery,* daughter of Daniel and Margaret (Spencer) Goodwin (inn- 
keeper at Berwick), and widow of Zecheriah Emery who died prior to 
Dec. 22, 1692, and who m her Dec. 9, 1686, and by whom she had Eliza- 
beth (b Nov. 24, 1687) and Zechariah Emery (b Oct. 5, 1690). In 17 16 
his widow Elizabeth (Goodwin-Emery) Hubbard and his son Philip of 
York, "mariner," unite in the sale of his property as administrators. 
He had seven children, all born in Kittery. 

The first land or "homestead lot " PHILIP HUBBARD bought was 
from James Emery, Sr., of " Barwick, Mass," to whom it was " laid out " 
Nov 1, 1654, by the " lot layers of Kittery." He and his wife Elizabeth 
for a consideration of ^120 quitclaimed it to PHILIP HUBBARD Jan 
27, 1696-7. It comprised — 

" All that my Land and building Scituate, lying and being in Barwick 
aforesd, Containing forty Acres, be it more or less, butted and bounded 
as followeth, vidzt: beginning at a Red oak tree Standing in the fence 
between my sd Land and Mr. John Playsteds, or birchen point, Lot Soe 

* Daniel Stone married Patience Goodwin (Elizabeth's sister) and.had seven children. Their grand- 
father was Thomas Spencer who settled early in the Indian village of Newiekawannock, near 
Mewickawannock Falls, where in 1633 or 1624 the first sawmill in New England was erected. Thomas 
Spencer had a wife Patience, 


called, and Soe to the Main River Side, and up the sd River Northward 
to a small brook and valley, which is a parting bounds between sd Land 
and Daniel Stone's Land; and from thence, running as the fence now 
Stands, to a tall white oak stump Standing within Daniel Stone's garri- 
son; and from sd Stump upon a Streight Course to ye first mentioned 
red oak tree, where it began, together with all my Right, title and inter- 
est of and to the Marsh, Comonly Called the fowling Marsh Joyning 
to sd Land." 

April 25, 1703, he bought for £70 an additional forty acres from Be- 
noni Hodgson of Kittery; May 17, 1706, a 50-acre tract for £30 from 
William Goodwin of Kittery, formerly granted to James Barry by the 
town of Kittery June 24, 1673; Jan 2, 1706, 50 acres for £36 from Dan- 
iel Mackentire, granted Feb 9, 1663, by the town to Micham Macken- 
tire; Dec 19, 1709, 40 acres for £8. \os. from Ephraim Joy, house wright, 
and wife Sarah Joy; and Jan 11, 1709-10, 50 acres that was laid out May 
10, 1703, to Alexander Grant and James Grant. 

The inventory of his estate, sworn to Feb 22, 17 13-14, amounted to 
£1223.01. Some of the items mentioned are: 4 oxen, with hay to win- 
ter them, £26; 9 cows at £4 p, with hay to winter them; 3-yr old hefer 
£ 3; 5 2-yr old cattle £10; 2 3-yr old steeres, with hay to winter them 
£7; a bull £3; 6 yearlings £7. 10^; a calfe 6s; a negro woman £35 ; 2 
mares & a horse £6 p; 29 sheep at 7^. £10. 3s; 2 sowes and 8 piggs 50^; 
2 shoats jos; carpenters and joyners tools, lathe, etc. £3. 2s; 1 cyder mill 
& press £4, and many other items of personal property. His widow died 
before Dec 16, 1736, when her thirds were divided and Philip the eldest 
son received £80 and the rest of the children £40 apiece, being John, 
Moses, Aaron, Elizabeth Redington, Patience Farnam, and Mary Bean.

Joseph and Elizabeth Roberts, of Dover, N. H., who was received into 
First Cong. Church at Berwick Apl 2, 1727. Widow Elizabeth (Roberts) 
Hubbard afterward rem to Dover, N. H., where she is mentioned July 
14, 1727, as a " shopkeeper." She m there abt 1727 or 1728 Capt John 
Gage, who d there in 1783, and who had by her, sons William, John, 
Moses and Jonathan Gage. The history of Wells and Kennebunk 
states that Sep 16, 17 12, Elisha Plaisted and Hannah Wheelwright, dau 
of Rev. John Wheelwright, were married at Wells, numerous guests 
from adjacent towns being present. After the nuptials were concluded 
the garrison was attacked by Indians, and among the brave defenders 
were "Captains Robinson and John Heard,* PHILIP HUBBARD, 
and others." Captain Robinson was killed, and the bridegroom captured, 
though afterward redeemed by ransom. At a town meeting held Mch 
14, 1717-18, PHILIP HUBBARD was elected "field driver for the 
year ensuing," and May 7, 17 18, "grand juryman for court of assize 
and general goal delivery" and Mch 9, 17 18-9, "surveyor of highways," 
and Oct 17, 17 21, "trustee for letting out upon interest ^240 .15^.", and 
Sep 20, 1722, "moderator." He was occasionally mentioned as a "ma- 
riner " in legal documents, but having inherited by allotment the larger 
part of his father's homestead and added to it several new land pur- 
chases, upon which he kept considerable live stock, it is quite likely that 
farming was his chief occupation. He owned, though, one-half of a 
small fishing boat with his brother John, " valued at £9." At that period 
the Newichawannock and Piscataqua Rivers were famous salmon sta- 
tions, and doubtless their fishing boat was employed principally in 
catching salmon. There are pretty good grounds for believing that 
PHILIP was killed suddenly by Indians in May of 1723. Children —

and was known locally as a lusty Indian fighter, his first wife Phebe (by whom he had Dorcas, Phebe, 
Shuah and James) having been killed by Indians July 4, 1C97. He then married in July, lt>98, widow 
Jane (Cole) Littlefield, dau of Nicholas Cole and relict of Joseph Littlefield, and had Jane, Mary and 
Abigail. His will was probated Jan 6, 1753, the inventory amounting to £674. lis. 


his brother Philip was appointed his guardian, and John Heard and 
Nathan Bartlett sureties to the bond of ^200, MOSES being in his 
" noonage, and disenabled to act on his part and proportion of his 
father's estate." MOSES HUBBARD later became a " joyner," and was 
elected July 2, 1724, "juryman for ye next Inferior Court to be held at 
York/' and Feb 20, 1724-5, " constable for the year ensuing and refuses 
to serve," and Mch 12, 1732-3, "grand juryman," also Mch iS, 1733-4, 
" grand juryman for trials for next Superior Court, to be holden at

and their children, Tohn Heard and Jane [were] baptized." Aug 8, 
1736, "Abigail, wife of MOSES HUBBARD, received into the Chh." 
He resided in South Berwick until 1737. and then removed to Kittery,

UXlt + ••Berwick originally formed a part of the patent to Capt. John Mason and Sir Fernando Gorges. 
It wis called by the Indians 'Xewichawannock.' Settlements were supposed to have been made 
there as early as 1624, as mention is made of the settlement of Xewichawannock being seven years 
old in 1631 Ambrose Gibbons and Humphrey Chadbourne lived at Xewichawannock in 1631. In 
1634Mason and Gorges divided their possessions and the territory east of the Piscataqua was assigned 
to Gorges while Mason took New Hampshire. Another name for the place was 'Piscataqua, so 


selling any. He gave to his sons Aaron, Richard and Jonathan some 
300 acres in Shapleigh, where they settled in the westerly part of the 
town, and to his daughters Elizabeth Neal, Hannah Hodgdon, Abigail 
Goodwin, and Sarah Goodwin he left " each a feather-bed." To John 
and Ichabod he bequeathed the homestead and buildings, and to sons 
Moses and Stephen " if the said Moses and Stephen are now living and 
return home to Berwick all my interest in the 3d Division in Shapleigh, 
and if they do not return, then to go to John and Ichabod." His estate 
at death was valued at ,£1,031. iS. 8. From Mch 17, 1766, he was called 
"Captain," and led a company in Rev. War in Col. James Scammon's 
regiment. A copy of his commission from Congress, signed by "John

Kittery was incorporated under the name of Kittery late in 1G00. In 1713 the northerly portion of 
Kittery was incorporated under the name of Berwick. In 1814 the southerly part of Berwick was in- 
corporated as South Berwick, and in 1831 Berwick was again divided and the northwestern part in- 
corporated as North Berwick. In 1810 Kittery was again divided and the town of Eliot taken from

Andrew and Dorcas Neal, both adm to church Jan 25, 1756, when Han- 
nah was also baptized. He was a "tanner", and a prominent, enter- 
prising citizen of Wells; elected Mch 5, 1759, and Mch 10, 1760, surveyor 
of highways, and was the first inhabitant of Wells to adopt a middle 
name, which he always signed in full. A senseless custom prevailed in 
that period of rating men in the church, there being three ranks. JOHN 
HEARD HUBBARD was declared to be of the first rank, and his 
brother Warwick of the second rank. He was called " captain," was a 
Rev. soldier, and was particularly prominent as a successful Indian 
fighter. His will, probated Mch 25, 1791, bequeaths "to my son Heard 
Hubbard £\o, to my son Asa Hubbard £3. 2s., to my daughters Abigail 
Emmons, Hannah Hussey, Eunice Chaney, Jane Neal, and the heirs of 
my daughters Dorcas Buffum and Mary Gillpatrick, deceased, each a 
new testament, they having received their portion, and to my son Noah 
Hubbard [named executor of the will] all my lands and all my estate 
not already disposed of." The inventory amounted to ^104. 18., and 
the liabilities to ^136. 2. 6.; so the estate was insolvent. Children —

Kittery, but by June 13, 1754, had removed to Wells, or to that part 
afterward set off as Kennebunk. In 1749 he was architect and builder 
of Second Cong. Church at Wells, a two-story building 30 feet long, the 
nails in which were wrought by hand at the anvil. Mch 10, 1760, he 
was chosen surveyor of highways. During subsequent periods he was 
chosen constable, tithingman, warden and surveyor of lumber, select- 
man, and auditor of town accounts, and lived in Kennebunk. He was 
firm and resolute in his devotion to principle, and was elected Mch 22, 
1775, member of committee on correspondence dealing with war mat- 
ters. Afterward he enlisted a company for eight months and marched 
to Cambridge, Mass., where he was killed. "Joseph Storer, John Lit- 
tlefield, Noah M. Littlefield, and JAMES HUBBARD were active offi- 
cers in the great struggle and sealed their devotion to their country 
with their blood," reads the history of Wells and Kennebunk. The in-

amounted to ^465.1. Children — Mary (b abt 1760, d Mch 20, 1794, m

Old warriors ! whose adored remains, in weeping vaults her hallowed earth contains— Alexander 

The original records of the War of the devolution are scattered over the world— some in England 
(captured by the enemy), some in the hands of private individuals, and the balance (not burned or 
destroyed in various conflicts) are in the custody of libraries and State governments ; also in the State, 
War, Navy, Pension, Treasury and Interior Departments at Washington, D. C. These valuable docu- 
ments are practically inaccessible, particularly in the State Department, where the most important 
ones are, they being not yet indexed or open to public scrutiny ; hence the difficulty of furnishing a 
complete roster of all -Hubbard"' combatants (probably, though, nine-tenths of the whole number 
are contained herein) or full data about those hereinafter mentioned. The compiler embraced some 
unusual opportunities, however, for examination of a part of the records in government custody, and 
has copied from them the information substantially as found, which, though incomplete and dis- 
jointed, is sufficient to show actual participation in the great conflict. In many cases the length i >f 
service is greater than the subjoined data would indicate. Where the faintest uncertainty existed 
whether those of the same name were identical or not, the name will be found repeated. When 
known, the names of commanders of organizations are given. The designations " company," " regi- 
ment," or "battalion," are usually omitted to save space. Occasionally will be found conflicting 
dates, not explainable. No "Hubbards ' were discovered among Maryland, Delaware, Georgia, 
North Carolina, or South Carolina troops. Not conclusive proof, however, that there were none. 
Some soldiers went from their own into other States and enlisted. 

Again the compiler calls attention to the grotesque spelling of this and earlier periods. There is 
probably no surname in its transmission from the ancient to the present epoch that has not suffered 
radical changes. So readers in tracing ancestry from old documents must continually remember that 
sounds to the ear and not forms to the eye governed "ye olden scribe," and be not, consequently, 
diverted from the trail. For instance, in the Massachusetts Revolutionary archives on file in the 
State House at Boston the name " Hawkes Hubbard " gives the same war service under the names 
Hobart, Hobard, Hubbart, and Hubbard, thus proving them to be identical. Being of Hingham, 
where "Hobarts" were numerous, he doubtless descended from Edmund Hobart, whose posterity- 
have nearly all retained the "Hobart " form of spelling their name.

Vermont was not a state in 1775, consequently there were no state regiments. Companies were 
formed, however, in this section and called out from time to time as occasion demanded, and then 
relieved from duty. These names have been taken from the " Pay-Roils," " Pay-Tables " and " Or- 
ders and Receipts " in the Adjutant-General's Office, Montpelier, Vt.

And ever since historian writ, and ever since a bard could sing. 
Doth each esalt, with all his wit, the noble art of murdering. 
And while in fashion picturesque, the poet rhymes of blood and blows. 
The grave historian, at his desk, describes the same in classic prose. 

— William Makepeace Thackeray. 

In the Spring of 1774 two families left Connecticut and settled on a very arable and high rolling 
table-land in Rutland County on a spur of the Green Mountains, called, locally, Pittsford Mountains. 
This territory was then in New York State. In 1775 they were followed by seven other Connecticut 
families, some of which were named Hickock, Hubbard, Keeler, Kellogg and Selleck. Hubbard ton is 
accessible by roads running from Port Orwell on Lake Champlain, Ticonderoga, Crown Point and 

July 7, 1777, a hot battle was fought here, the principal fighting being done on the slope between 
the meeting-house and the big tree seen in the foreground. The British were victorious in this con- 
test, and were commanded by General Fraser, who was reinforced late in the contest by General 
Reidisel with his German regiment. Colonels Warner and Francis commanded the American troops, 
the latter meeting here a brave death. The defection of Colonel Hale with 700 men was the principal 
cause of the American defeat. He claimed that his men were too sick and worn out to fight and 
retreated with them toward Castleton, about six miles southwest, to join General St. Clair, who was 
then stationed there. The day before this battle a band of Indians and Tories under Captain Sher- 
wood captured the male inhabitants of Hubbardton and confined them at Ticonderoga. Two after- 
ward escaped. The rest were rescued upon the surrender of Burgoyne. The females and children of 
the deserted families then retraced their steps over the rocky hills to their old Connecticut homes. 
From the prominent boulder in the foreground a British soldier was shot dead by an American sentry, 
as he leaped upon it to reconnoiter the American encampment.

— Felicia Dorothea Hemans. 

The compiler spells this name "Hobart" because his descendants generally prefer such form of 
orthography and scout at the idea of any other being correct. The writer think* he was a "Hub- 
bard " scion, and so gives him and his descendants space in this volume, but quarrels not with those 
who think differently. Many of the early Colonial writers wrote the name 'Hubbard." and 
Adolphus Skinner Hubbard, San Francisco, Cal , one of EDMUND'S descendants, now uses this form 
of spelling the name. A large portion of the following genealogical records has been taken from town 
histories, which somewhat impair their accuracy and throw a little shadow of doubt upon the number 
and correct names of his children. In the shire of Norfolk, England, are various parishes giving in 
full the antecedents and data of the family of this EDMUND HOBART, including his first wife's 
name, his children's names, etc, which the compiler was precluded from obtaining on account of ex- 
orbitant fees demanded. 

EDMUND HOBART was born about 1574 in Hingham, Norfolk, 
Eng., and died in Hingham, Mass., Mch 8, 1648. He arrived with 
his wife, son Joshua, daughters Rebekah and Sarah, and servant, Henry 
Gibbs, in May, 1633, and settled in Charlestown, Mass. (The mother of 
these children, whom he married in England in 1597, died in 1641.) He 
was made a freeman March 4, 1633-4 and admitted to full communion 
in the First Church of Christ* in Boston August 19, 1633-4, and stood 
N( >. ''15 " on the " freeman's list," and was one of ten citizens October 
13, 1634, who, with Increase Nowell, agreed that only certain desirable 
persons should be allowed to "sit downe and dwell in the towne." In 
1635 he was the constable of Charlestown. This same year he removed 
to Bear Cove (Hingham) and assisted in organizing the first church 
there, of which his son Peter was the first minister, and was made a 
commissioner Sep 6, 1638, the functions being similar to those of a Jus- 
tice of the Peace nowadays, permitting him to officiate at marriage cer- 
emonies, a privilege then denied to many ministers. He was Deputy

She was "a grave matron and of good carriage," and died June 23, 
1649. Children — Nazareth, Rebecca, Sarah, Edmund, Peter, Thomas

PETER, second son of Edmund Hobart, Sr., was born in 1604 in 
Hingham, Norfolk, England, and died in Hingham, Mass., Jan. 20, 1679. 
He graduated at Magdalene College, Cambridge University, in 1625, as 
Master of Arts, and taught there for a short period, and was ordained by 
the Bishop of Norwich in 1627. He preached in England for 10 years 
and left Haverhill, Eng., in April, 1635, arriving at Charlestown, Mass., 
June 8, 1635, with his wife (d about 1636) and four children in one of a 



fleet of seven vessels. He joined the Charlestown church June 30, 1635. 
The first entry made in his Journal reads as follows: " 1635 — June 8, I, 
with my wife and four children, came safely to New England June 8, 
1635. Forever praised be the God of Heaven, my God and my King!" 
His father, Edmund, and brothers Joshua, Edmund, Jr. and Thomas, had 
arrived a year or two earlier. September 2, 1635, he was made a free- 
man, and September 18, 1635, he, with 29 others, founded Hingham 
(name changed from Bear Cove), Mass., formally drawing their house- 
lots upon that day. From 1635 to 1679 he preached in Hingham, ac- 
cording to the memorial tablet now in the church, which was open for 
public worship January 8, 1682, the land being donated by Capt. Joshua 
Hobart,* PETER'S youngest brother. The new church cost "^£430 and 
the old house." PETER was then dead. Rev. Robert Peck was his 
colleague, or " teacher," the functions of which office were " doctrinal 
and scriptural explanation," the minister's being "private and public 
exhortation." PETER was an independent and spirited clergyman 
and espoused somewhat too warmly his late sovereign's cause and Eng- 
lish customs generally, which occasionally brought him up before the' 
General Court to answer for his outspoken opinions. In 1646 he was 
fined ,£20 for " seditious practices and derogation of and contempt for 
authority," and was "bound to his good behavior." He defended his 
brothers Joshua, Edmund and Thomas against charges of insubordina- 
tion preferred by Lieut. Anthony Eames, commanding officer of the 
"train band," and a member of his own church. This was a bitter and 
disagreeable quarrel and agitated Hingham for many years. The vari- 
ous active participants were fined a sum total of ,£155, io.y., to which 
Joshua contributed ^20, Edmund Jr. £5, and Thomas and PETER £2 

Governor Winthrop referred to him in the following language: " There 
was a great marriage to be solemnized at Boston. The bridegroom 
being of Hingham (Mr. Hubbard's church), he was procured to preach, 

* Capt. Joshua Hobart gave the deed for the site of this meeting-house July 8, 1681. But little is 
known about the first meeting-house except that it was enclosed by a palisade and had a belfry and 
bell, which were used principally for defensive purposes against the hostile attacks of the unconverted 
aborigines. The present meeting-house (see illustration) stands on Main Street, near the railway sta- 
tion, and is the oldest church in New England that has been used continuously as a house of worship. 
The principal timbers in it were taken from the first house. There were no stoves in it until 1622, 
when two of the front pews were removed to make room for them. The deacons occupied seats 
directly under the pulpit. Most of the seats were simple oak benches arranged in rows. One pew 
was reserved for the widow of Rev. Peter Hobart, which was occupied upon her death by the wife of 
the second minister, Rev.. John Norton. A warm division of opinion, lasting over a year, existed 
among the congregation regarding its site. Thiswasonly terminated by the mandate of the Governor 
of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and his Magistrates, who ordered the building erected where it now 
stands. The Tablet gives the list of divines from the beginning to the present, together with their 
terms of service. 


and came to Boston to that end. But the magistrate hearing- of it sent 
to him to forbear. The reasons were, ( i ) For that his spirit had been 
discovered to be averse to our ecclesiastical and civil government, and 
he was a bold man and would speak his mind; (2) We were not willing 
to bring in the English custom of ministers performing the solemnity 
of marriage, which sermons at such times might induce; but if any 
minister were present, and would bestow a word of exhortation, &c, it 
was permitted." 

He signed his name " Hubberd," though it was more commonly 
spelled "Hobart."* By his parishioners he was greatly admired, re- 
spected, and loved. He had a second wife; the names of both have 
never yet been ascertained. Children (first four born in England)— 
Joshua, Jeremiah, Josiah, Elizabeth, Ichabod, Hannah, Hannah, 
Bathsheba, Israel, Jael, Gershom, Japhet, Nehemiah, David, Rebecca, 
Abigail and Lydia.

JOvSHUA, youngest son of Edmund Hobart, Sr., was born in England 
(probably Hingham) in 1614, and died July 28, 1682. He came with 
his father to Charlestown, Mass., in 1633, and was admitted to the church 
December 27, 1633; made freeman September 3, 1634. He was No. 53 
on the Freeman's List of 1635-6, and then owned " 2 acres of planting 
ground." In 1637 he sold his 10-acre lot on the Mystic side of the 
river to T. Squire and T. Ewer; removed to Hingham in 1635; mar- 


ried at Cambridge March 14, 1638, Ellen Ibrook. He was deputy mag- 
istrate in the General Court from 1643 to 1668. June 28, 1645, he 
prominently figured in the revolt against the authority of Lieut An- 
thony Eames, commanding officer of Hingham's " train band," a famous 
militia organization in those days. Bozoun Allen, whose cause JOSH U A 
espoused, was elected captain in opposition to Eames, and so fierce 
was the factional feeling resulting from it that the grave magistrates 
at Boston were kept busy many months in their efforts to quell the 
agitation this disturbance had brought into the community. The 
" Hingham Mutiny," as it was called, occupied a prominent place in 
colonial matters in those days and made the warmest friends bitter 
foes, threatening alike at one period to disrupt that prosperous col- 
ony. Afterward JOSHUA was made captain of this Artillery Com- 
pany. For his activity and "sedition," displayed in this insurrection, 
he paid into the General Court's exchequer June 28, 1645, the sum of 
^20. May 8, 1656, he was the attorney that settled the estate of Wil- 
liam Vassall (deceased), a prominent English immigrant. Afterward 
this estate was sold for ^120. JOSHUA, John Cushen and Mathyas 
Briggs signed the deed of conveyance. He was the Speaker to the 
General Court at Boston from Hingham during the years 1674-75-76, 
and served as Captain in the King Phillip Indian War. Children — 
Hannah, Peter, Sarah, Deborah, Joshua, Solomon, Enoch and Han- 
nah. (Probably all were born in Hingham Mass.)

ISAAC HUBBARD settled at New Brunswick, and at his decease 
was the senior magistrate of the county of Sunbury. He died at

Boston in 1847. 

"DANIEL HUBBARD, of Boston— An Addresser of Hutchinson 
in 1774, and a Protestor against the Whigs the same year. In 1775 
he was an addresser of Gage " — Ibid. 

" NATHANIEL HUBBARD went to St. John, New Brunswick, in 
1783, and was a grantee of that city. He removed to the Parish of Bur- 
ton, County of Sunbury, where he was a magistrate and where he died 
in 1824, aged 78 " — Ibid. 

"WILLIAM HUBBARD— At the Peace he went to St. John, New 
Brunswick, and was a grantee of that city. He settled in Sunbury

pleas. He died in that country in 1813" — Ibid. 

REV. BELA HUBBARD, of New Haven, Ct, was a mild royalist, 
the nature of his ordination vows, taken in England, vowing allegiance 
to his sovereign, was sufficient to keep him neutral. He saved much of 
the valuable personal effects of his parishioners from British capture by 
hiding such in his church in New Haven, and often used his official in- 
fluence to prevent overt acts against their persons and property (see 
Prominent American Hubbards). 

JOSEPH HUBBAP.D, son of Elizabeth and John Hubbard, one of 
the early settlers of Pomfret, Ct, had tory proclivities, according to a 
family tradition, and fled to Nova Scotia— then a rendezvous for royal- 
ists—to avoid participating in a conflict against his neighbors and near 


kinsmen. Another account by one of his descendants, of more value, 
probably, relates that he lived on a farm adjoining that of "Old Put." 
Both continued to be good friends despite their adverse views upon 
colonial government. " Old Put " advised him to sell out, which he did, 
disposing of his farm and farming utensils for ^"1,000 sterling. Taking 
what household goods he could load upon an ox wagon he removed to 
and settled upon " Tory Hill," in Salisbury, Ct, where he remained and 
brought up his family. 

JAMES HUBARD, Jr. (son of "James of Gloster " [Gloucester], a 
large land and ship owner and vestryman of the Church of England), 
was born Feb 6, 1743, and known as "A United Empire Royalist" at 
the outbreak of the American Revolution. Partaking largely of com- 
mercial benefits by maritime trade with England fostered his allegiance 
to the crown, which prosperity he imagined would decay if the suprem- 
acy of American independence was established. His pronounced sym- 
pathies caused his departure to that country upon the British man-of- 
war Fedowa in company with Lord Dunmore, Royal Governor of 
Virginia, where he remained until the war's close, when he returned, 
only to find his entire possessions confiscated. He then settled in New 
York City, where he eventually died and was buried in Christ Church 
Cemetery. His wife was Fanny Morton, daughter of Henry Morton. 
Of his four children, Mathew went to India with Lord Cornwallis and 
probably died there; Frances (who was once engaged to Lord Dun- 
more's brother and eventually discarded him), married a son of General 
St. Clair, Robert St. Clair, of Staunton, Va.; Charlotte married a Mr. 
Griggs, lawyer, of Jefferson County, Va.; and the remaining daughter 
married a Mr. Bowyer of Lexington, Va. JAMES HUBARD, Jr., 
had brothers Mathew, William and John, and sisters Anne, Elizabeth, 
Margaret and May, one of whom was the grandmother of President 
Zachary Taylor, who had a brother named Hubbard Taylor. 

of Wheeling, West Virginia. 

(Descended from William Hubbard of Ipswich, Mass.) 


Ipswich • mass.- 

Civil and religious freedom go hand in hand, and in no country can much of the one exist without 
producing a corresponding portion of the other— Charles Caleb Colton. 

WILLIAM HUBBARD of Ipswich, Suffolk, Eng\, was born in 
1594, and graduated at Cambridge University, Eng-, in 1620. He 
sailed from London in the ship Defence in 1635, " Edmond Bostocke, 
master," and landed in Boston, Mass, Oct 6, 1635, accompanied by his 
wife (probably second wife) Judith (Knapp) Hubbard, daughter of John 
and Martha (Blosse) Knapp, of Ipswich, Eng, and six children. The 
shipping list of passengers of the Defence reports him " husbandman,* 
aged 40 years; Judith, 25; Martha, 22; Mary, 20; John, 15; William, 14; 
Nathaniel, 6; and Richard, 4 years." 

He bought land of Thomas Dudley, Esq., to whom it had been 
granted in October this same year (1635). Mr. Dudley had erected a 
house upon it. This parcel consisted of nine acres " lyinge betweene 
Goodman Cross on the West and a lott intended to Mr. Bradstreet on 
the East." Another parcel he purchased consisted of " twentie five 
acres, late Goodman Mussey's, lyinge betweene John Shatswell and a 
lott late Goodman Cross's, now Mr. Saltonstall's;" also "a ten-acre lott 
in the Reedy Marsh:" also " 100 acres of Meaddow and 100 acres of 
upland at the farr meaddow where he would choose it." He acquired 
considerable more land later. Some of it was on Plum Island, Hog 
Island, and Castle Neck. Among " Old Norfolk County Deeds " is the 
following instrument recorded: "May 22, 1657, William Hubbard, 
Senr, of Ipswich, New England, in ye County of Essex, gent., and 

* Chaucer defined "husbandman" as "the master of a family." Since his time it has lost that sig- 
nificance and now means a tiller of the ground. William Hubbard was undoubtedly a gentleman of 
easy circumstances and much landed estate in England, and left there because of a sense of irritation 
to his religious views caused by the unbearable interference and restrictions then placed upon free- 
dom of worship in the old country. 


Judith, his wife, to Captain Thomas Wiggin, of Quamscooke, in New 
England," for consideration of ^60 quitclaim 1000 acres of land, more 
or less, consisting of " all yt their pcell & pcells of land granted them 
by a genl Court held at Boston on ye fourteenth day of October in ye 
yeare of our Lord 1656, containing of estimacon 1,000 acres of land, be 
the same more or less;" also 890 acres "situate, lying and being uppon 
the north side of Quocheche River, about eight or nine miles from the 
Mills, the nuber of eight hundred & ninety Acres in a pine swamp;" 
also no acres "on both sides of the same river, about three or four 
miles above the mills." (Signed:) " WILLIAM HUBBARD, Judith 
Hubbard." Acknowledged May 22, 1657. The 890 acres laid in 
Whitehall Swamp in what is now Rochester, N. H., and the no acres in 
Dover, N. H., which that town granted to him prior to this date. 

He was the founder and principal benefactor of the Ipswich 
Grammar School in 1636, and gave one acre for its site (the Cogswell 
School House now stands upon that acre). He was made freeman May 
2, 1638, and was Deputy to the General Court for six years, between 
1638 and 1646, and commissioned in 165 1 by the General Court to 
"marry people," not then a clergyman's prerogative; "Mr. Hubbert '" 
was commissioner of Salem Court, 1654-56; Justice of the Quarterly 
Court in 1658; and "assistant" in 1659. In 1656 "for land granted 
him in 1652 and for ^50 paid by him in England for the country, he 
has a grant of 1,000." In 1659 he was on a committee of complaints 
" that the ministers suffer for want of support." He removed to Boston 
in 1652, and was considered by [Captain Edward?] Johnson "a very 
learned man, being well read in state matters, of a very affable and 
humble behavior, who hath expended much of his estate to helpe on 
this worke. Although he be slow in speech, yet is he downright for the 
businesse." This laudation is supposed to refer to him when he was 
the principal of the Ipswich Grammar School. He died in Boston be- 
tween June 8 and Aug 19, 1670. His will mentions sons William, Na- 
thaniel, and Richard (but not John who must have died previously) 
and was probated Aug 19, 1670. It devised a considerable portion to 
his son, Rev. William, his then eldest son, according to the English law 
of primogeniture. It consisted of houses, buildings, and lands in 
Tendring Hundred, which is in Essex County on the south side of the 
River Stour, separating Essex from Suffolk County. The language of 
his will is: " My eldest son, William Hubbard, shall enjoy all my lands 
in Old England situated in tendring, both free and Coppyhold, with all 
other houses, buildings, and appurtenances thereunto belonging;" also 
house and land at Ipswich, " together with a parcel of meadow, six 
acres more or less, adjoining to ye land of Corporall Whipple, Cornett 


Whipple, and Serjeant Jecob, purchased of my cozen John Brown;" 
also another tract of 300 acres. Some of this land, in Essex County, 
England, may have included the " Maner of Bovills, Little Clacton 
(Devill or Dovell)," which was owned by a William Hubbard since 
1552; then it was the property of "William Cardinall, gent." This 
William Hubbard may have been the ancestor of the William Hubbard 
of Ipswich who emigrated. Children — Martha, Mary, John, William, 
Nathaniel, and Richard. 

MARTHA, eldest child of William, was born in England in 16 13 in 
(probably) Essex County, and died July 13, 1689. She married John 
Whittingham of Sutterton (Southerton) near Boston, Lincolnshire, 
England, who came to Ipswich, Mass, in 1637-8, and died therein 1648. 
His wife MARTHA (to whom he bequeathed his realty in England 
jointly with his eldest son John), Rev. William Hubbard of Ipswich, his 
father-in-law, and his brother Samuel Hough were named as execu- 
tors. He was reputed to have been the son of Daniel, born Nov 12, 
157 1, living at Kingsgate, Durham, Eng, in 1690, Daniel was the son 
(?) of William Whittingham, Dean of Durham. (Some authorities con- 
tend that John was the son of Baruch Whittingham.) He was a mem- 
ber of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Boston, a mer- 
chant and part owner of the ship Sarah. MARTHA (HUBBARD) 
WHITTINGHAM then married in 1651 widower Simon Eyre of Wa- 
tertown and Boston, a surgeon who came from London in 1635 in the 
ship Increase and figures prominently in Watertown (Mass) annals. 
Children (by Whittingham)— John (d y), Martha, Richard, William,* 
Elizabeth, Judith: (by Eyre)— Maria, and John (b Feb 19, 1653-4, 
mem Hon Arty Co in 1682, com safety 1689, representative 1693 and 
1698; he had nine children.) 

William Clarke, Boston, Mass, in Oct, 1731, wrote the following 
about her: "My grandmother by the mother's side was MARTHA 
HUBBARD, of the Ipswich Hubbards. The family was very consid- 
erable, she being in England brought up at a boarding school, and had 
always her attendants to wait upon her, and in those days wearing her 
gold watch, which was worn only by persons of distinction; * 
and I have often heard my grandmother speak of her living in Eng- 
land and the meanness of her living here, though at the very best 
rate, but would flatter herself that here she had pure worship which 
they were deprived of in the land of their nativity." 

MARY, second child of William, was born in Ipswich, Eng, in 1615, 
and came with her parents to Ipswich, Mass. She married Thomas 
Scott, Jr., son of Thomas and Ann Scott, from Ipswi ch, Eng, who ar- 

* See will of, under Nathaniel Hubbard, following. 


rived on the Elizabeth in 1634 and removed to Hartford, Ct, about 
1636, where he died Nov. 6, 1643, " by accident," and his widow, Ann 
Scott, married Nov 11, 1644, Thomas Ford and removed to Northamp- 
ton, Mass, and died there May 5, 1675. Thomas Scott, Jr., died in 1657 
at Stamford, Ct, and MARY (HUBBARD) SCOTT then became the 
second wife of Ezekiel Rogers, son of Rev. Nathaniel Rogers, whose 
first wife was said to have been a " Miss L. Paine " and second wife Mar- 
garet Crane. MARY (HUBBARD) SCOTT ROGERS died in 1675, 
leaving a son, Thomas, by her first husband, and Martha, Nathaniel, 
John, Ezekiel, Timothy, and Samuel by her second husband, whose 
death occurred July 5, 1674. 

JOHN, third child and eldest son of William, Sr., was born in 1620 in 
England, probably in Essex County. Nothing has been learned of his 
career after arriving in Ipswich, Mass. He is supposed to have died 
within a short period after his arrival. He is not mentioned in his 
father's will, probated in 1670, nor does his name ever appear in any 
legal instruments wherein his brothers' and sisters' names are of fre- 
quent occurrence. It is a pretty safe conclusion that he died before 1665. 

NATHANIEL, fifth child of William, Sr., was born in 1629 in Eng- 
land, probably in Essex County. He returned to England before 1672. 
This is proved by the will of his nephew, William Whittingham, whose 
father, John Whittingham, married NATHANIEL'S sister Martha. 
Mch 25, 1672, William Whittingham of Sutterton, Eng, late of Boston, 
Mass., merchant, made his will, which was probated in London, Eng., 
Apl 15, 1672, and a duplicate of it recorded July 23, 1672, in Liber 7, 
page 224, Probate Records Office, Boston, Mass. In this will among 
others, he mentions his mother Mrs. Martha Eire [Martha Hubbard, dau 
Rev. William, who m (1) John Whittingham and (2) Simon Eire], father- 
in-law John Lawrence of New Yorke, in America, gentleman, brother- 
in-law John Clarke of Boston, uncle Nathaniel Hubbard, gentleman, 
London, Eng. [to whom he bequeathed ^163], his "cozens Mary Hub- 
bart & Anne Hubbert, daughters of my saide Uncle [Nathaniel] Hub- 
bert, ^5. to each, to buy them Rings." He appointed as executors John 
Lawrence of New York, William Hubbard of Ipswich, Nathaniel Hub- 
bard, and John Lewine of London. The inventory is a long one, of 
household effects and merchandise, including "one negro boy at ,£25," 
and amounts to ,£666. $s. \od. NATHANIEL'S father's will, probated 
in Boston Aug 19, 1670, thus speaks of him: " To my son Nathaniel I 
have already given a sufficient portion of my land at Dover Court & 
otherwise." These various references to him seem to prove effectually 
that he returned to England and lived either at Dover Court or in some 
part of London. 


RICHARD, sixth and youngest child of William, Sr., was born about 
163 1 in Essex County, England, and came over with his parents in the 
Defence in 1635. He attended Harvard University and became B. A. 
Aug 9, 1653, and M. A. in 1655. His college bills were paid (for his 
father, doubtless) by James Oliver, "mr will payne of Ipswich," and 
Joseph Jewett, according to Harvard College records. He married about 
1658 Sarah Bradstreet, dau of Governor Simon and Anne (Dudley) 
Bradstreet (a brilliant poetess and the daughter of Gov. Thomas Dud- 
ley ). There is no record showing when he was made freeman, though 
he was a deputy to the General Court in 1660, feoff er of the grammar 
school in 1665, and a selectman Feb 20, 1665, and up to Nov 2, 1680, 
when he was made chairman; chosen " tithinman " Dec 20, 1677, and 
possessed of right of " comonage." In 1672 he is mentioned in the

"April 16, 1666, At a meeting of the selectman Mr. RICHARD HUB- 
BARD, Cornett Whipple, Ed: Coborne, and William Reiner [were] 
apoynted to run the line between Wennam and us," which shows that 
he possessed a knowledge of surveying. In 1679-80 he was on another 
committee appointed by the General Court to settle the boundary lines 
between Salem, Beverly, and Wenham. His father left him a valuable 
farm of 800 acres at " the Hamlet" when he removed to Boston in 1662, 
which is now the town of Hamilton. He also owned ten " double 
shares" in Plum Island in 1664. He was one of the 27 richest men of 
the 230 freeholders of Ipswich in 1664. "Monday, May 2, 1681, Mr. 
Richard Hubbard of Ipswich Farms, dyeth suddainly in the afternoon. 
Goeing to ly on's Bed after diner was there found dead by his daughter 
accidently goeing in thether." The inventory of his estate taken June 
4, 1 68 1, showed him worth ,£1,457. 5s., which was settled by his adminis- 
tratrix, Sarah, his widow, who afterward and by Apl 12, 1683, had mar- 
ried Major Samuel Ward, widower, of Marblehead, who had a son, also 
named Major Samuel Ward. The court ordered Sep 27, 1681, in the 
distribution of his estate " that the eldest sonn shall for his portion have 
^260 and the rest of the children ^130 p. peace," naming Sarah, Rich- 
ard, Nathaniel, John, and Simon, "and the rest be left to his widdow," 
etc. His assets consisted mostly of real estate, the land records in 
Ipswich showing a large number of transfers between him and others.

be equally divided among his brothers and sisters. 

NATHANIEL— b in Ipswich about 1663. When his father died in 
1681 Capt Thomas Ward was appointed his guardian. Later he became 
a merchant in Boston. He embarked on the Brigantine Swallow 
(which was bound presumably for the West Indies) and never re- 
turned. He was unmarried. Letters of administration upon his es- 
tate were granted Apl 26, 1699, to William Clarke of Boston, also a 
merchant. The inventory of his estate, taken Aug 3, 1699, consisted 
of, "Sugar, ,£24. 6$s.; cash for sugar to be received, jQn. 10s. &d ; 
one-fourth part of 18 tons of Brasilletto Wood, ^"52; 17 yds of silk, 
£3. 8s.," and other articles, amounting in all to ,£102. $s.; also "one- 
fourth part of a Farme at Ipswich, containing, the whole, abt 150 
acres." May 17, 1700, by Mr. Clarke's account the assets were ^176. 
8s. 6d. He paid out as follows: " Paid Major Francis Wainwright a 
debt due by bond from the decedent, with interest, ,£88; paid Colo. 
Penn Townsend, due to him upon charter party for hire of the Brig- 
antine Swallow, ,£55; paid Col. John Appleton nine thirty-secondths of

Rev. William Hubbard, became his guardian at his father's death. He 
removed to Boston, and Nov 9, 1697, m there Elizabeth Clarke,* 
daughter of Dr Johnf and Martha (Whittingham) Clarke. Dr. John 
Clarke had a second wife, Elizabeth Williams, and died Dec 19, 1690.

died Feb 5, 1728, and was buried in Copp's Hill Burying-ground, 
where were also buried Increase, Cotton and Samuel Mather. RICH- 
ARD was a merchant and mariner. Letters of administration were 
granted to his widow Elizabeth May 24, 1699 They had one child only, 
Richard, born in Boston Apl 14, 1699, who died unmarried at the- age 
of 22. He continued in his father's business and was also lost at sea. 
Feb 25, 1720, he made his will, which was probated in Boston, Mch 5, 
1 72 1. It thus reads: "I, Richard Hubbard of Boston, in the county 
of Suffolk, in New England, merchant, being bound to Sea, and not 
knowing how God may deal with me in my voyage, Do make & Or- 
dain," etc. The will bequeaths his " Real as well as Personal estate 
Two-Thirds unto my well beloved sister Elizabeth Mather, and one 
Third unto my well beloved Brother Sam'l Mather." 

JOHN— b in Ipswich in 1664, d there in 1747. He was elected Mch 8, 
1719-20 surveyor of highways and held that position until Mch 1, 
1734-5- When his father died Capt Daniel Epps was appointed his 
guardian. Letters of administration were granted to his widow May 
6, 1747. Feb 1, 1750, the inventory of his estate amounted to £^2\. 04, 
the house, barn, and 50 acres being worth ^250. He is mentioned as a 
"farmer," "taylor" and "gentleman." His marriage to Mary Brown 
of Ipswich was published Apl 22, 17 10. His will reads : " To my loving 
wife Mary I give the use of one-third part of all my Real Estate dur- 
ing her natural life;" also certain personal property; "To my only son 
John Hubbard I give all Real Estate whatsoever and wheresoever; to 
Richard Hubbard Dodge and Nathaniel Hubbard Dodge, the children

This Roster of Commissioned Officers in the Union Army during our late civil war was found 
among the manuscripts of the late Douglas Hubbard, and is printed in this volume that our posterity 
may pay homage to the memory of those who placed country above life. Hundreds, perhaps thou- 
sands, of others, bearing the Hubbard name, who served in the ranks and yielded to the same spirit of 
devotion, have not yet been collated from war records for various reasons. It is to be hoped that 
this will be done at some future period.

WILLIAM HUBBARD, fourth child and second son of William 
Hubbard, Sr., of Ipswich, Mass., was born in 1621 in Essex 
County, England. After his parents had settled in 1635 in Ipswich, he 
entered Harvard College and graduated, a Master of Arts, in a class of 
nine, the second Tuesday in August, 1642, in the first class ever gradu- 
ated from an American college. He also studied medicine there, in 
conjunction with his other studies. May 18, 1653, he was made a free- 
man. About 1646 he married Mary Rogers* (b in Feb, 1628, alive as 
late as Mch 25, 1685), only dau of Rev. Nathaniel and Margaret (Crane) 
Rogers, formerly of Coggeshall, Essex Co, Eng. July 4, 1656, he began 
to preach in Ipswich as the colleague of Mr. Thomas Cobbett. Nov 17, 
1658, he was ordained minister and began then to make himself felt in 
the colony as a scholar, historian, and divine. Until this period, since 
graduating, but little was heard of him. Many of his sermons have 
been printed. His last publication was entitled " Dying Testimony to 
the Order of the Churches," prepared jointly by himself and Mr. John 
Higginson of Salem. Mch 19, 1677, his " Indian Wars " received the 
approbation of the colonial censors and was soon published in Boston. 
Under the name of " Present State of New England "f it was licensed 

* Many writers in referring to her call her "Margaret." In all legal instruments on record from 
Mch 20, /G61, to 1685, she is called " Mary," and Apl 3, 1662, she signs herself " Mary Hubbard ' to a 
quitclaim deed to John Appleton of Ipswich, of 12 acres of land, for consideration of £f8. 10s. It 
could be possible, though doubtful, that he had a still earlier wife named Margaret. Of his public 
affairs we know much, of his domestic ones but little, he avoiding reference to them in all of the 
numerous papers he bequeathed to posterity.

to appear in London. Mr. Hubbard went over early in 1678 to superin- 
tend its publication and returned in October, 1678. For his History of 
New England, brought up to 1650 and finished in 1680, he received, Oct 
11, 1682, £50 as a "manifestation of thankfulness" from the General 
I Court. £25 was to have been paid to him when " he procured a fayre 
■ coppie to be written, that it be fitted for the presse." The manuscript 
of this work, in several handwritings, is in the Library of the Massa- 
chusetts Historical Society, the corrections only being in his handwriting. 
This copy was rescued from the flames in August, 1775, by Rev. Dr. 
Andrew Eliot in an attack made by a mob upon the house of Gov. 
Thomas Hutchinson, who held royalistic ideas, and presented to the 
Society April 9, 1791, by his son, Rev. John Eliot, D. D. It is quite 
smoky looking, and also brown with age. The Preface, Chapter 1, and 
nearly all of Chapter 2 are missing, as well as the end of the book. As 
it now appears, the beginning is upon page 9, which abruptly reads — 
"famous Prince Charles of blessed memory," etc. Many of the events 
in this history were taken from Gov. Winthrop's Diary, for which the 
credit was doubtless given by him in the missing preface. Cotton Ma- 
ther in his Magnalia gives him credit for assistance as follows: "Mr. J. 
Higginson and Mr. W. HUBBARD have assisted me, and much obliged 
me with information for many parts of our history." Rev. John Eliot 
considered Mr. HUBBARD the most eminent minister in the county of 
Essex, Mass, " equal to any in the province for learning and candour, 
and superior to all his contemporaries as a writer." 

Herewith is a fac simile of his signature : J?P lilL^. 

July 1, 1684, on account of the "sudden visitation by sickness" of 
John Rogers, his wife's grandfather, President of Harvard University, 
he was appointed to " manage " the commencement and confer the de- 
grees. The day following " the Rev'd Mr. Rogers dyed, the sun begin- 
ning to emerge out of a Central Eclipps." President Rogers had 
changed the date of the commencement to one day earlier than the 
first date set, after learning of the expected eclipse. "Wee are not 
superstitious in it, but reckon it very inconvenient," he said. June 2, 
1688, while President Increase Mather was in Europe, Rev. WILLIAM 
was appointed by Sir Edmund Andros, Royal Governor, to again 
officiate as President of the College at the commencement exercises. 
As no degrees were conferred that year he could not have presided this 
second time. In 1693 he certified to the good character of Sarah 
Buckley, wife of William Buckley, which saved her life, she being tried 
for " witchcraft," but cleared on account of her good character. June 


26, 1696, he sent an important paper to Gov. John Archdale of South 
Carolina, treating upon the immigration of Ipswich residents to that 
vState. " March 15, 1694, he contracted to marry his housekeeper, Mary, 
the widow of Samuel Pearce " (who had a daughter Abigail Pearce who 
m John Fiodgkins of Ipswich), which was extremely distasteful to his 
parish, she being considered greatly below him in station, though they 
" would allow her to be a worthy woman." He officiated as pastor of 
the Ipswich Church until Aug 2, 1702, upon which day, according to the 
church records, "The Rev'd Mr. HUBBARD detained the Brethren of 
the Church and signified and declared his inability [through age] to 
carry on the work of the ministry any longer among them, and desired 
that they would take care and procure helpe to carry on sd work." May 
6, 1703, he formally relinquished the pulpit and his people donated him 
^60. He lived near the River at a place called " Turkey Shore." Sept 
14, 1704, he died. " He goes to ye Lecture, after to Col. Apleton's, goes 
home, sups, and dyes that night." The town of Ipswich voted £32 to 
pay his funeral expenses, and Oct 17, 1704, the proceeds of the old 
meeting-house (,£20) were added to the original sum. His widow was 
left in indigent circumstances. At a town meeting held " March ye 14, 
1709-10, voted: that ^20 money be added to the Town rates for sup- 
plying of Mrs. Hubbard, in her distressed condition." She died "Feb 
28, 1710, [11] aged 53," according to the epitaph upon her tombstone in 
Ipswich. Students and scholars are much indebted to Mr. HUBBARD'S 
patient, painstaking historical researches for their knowledge of New 
England events between 1620 and 1630. He toiled ceaselessly for 
knowledge — human and divine, and possessed some property during his 
lifetime, but his liberality caused him to mortgage much of it. July 20, 
1674, he mortgaged his Ipswich house and 30 acres, "part of Haffield's' 
farm," and 12 acres of other land for ^324 sterling to John Richards of 
Boston. February 14, 1664, he owned 7 double shares in Plum Island, 
Hog Island, and Castle Neck. July 24, 1676, he had an interest in the 
land and dwelling-house of one Thomas Cowell, and Elizabeth his wife, 
living near Kittery, Me, on a neck of land between Spruce Creek and 
the Piscataqua River, together with " Granthum's Island," the consider- 
ation being ^80, "payable in merchantable fish within four years." 
This property afterward came into the possession of his eldest son John, 
which was conveyed by his son, " Nathaniel Hubbard of Dorchester' 
Mass, Esq, as administrator of his father's estate, June 26, 1719^0 Elisha 
Gunnison of Kittery, shipwright, for £35." Children (by Mary Rogers), 
Margaret, John, and Nathaniel (see following). 

MARGARET, eldest child of Rev. William and Mary (Rogers) Hub- 
bard, was born Oct 15, 1647, and died Nov 11, 1716. She married John 

1 8 4 


Pyncheon, Jr.,* a distinguished scholar and soldier, who ranked as 
colonel in the King Philip Indian War and who commanded all the 
Connecticut Valley troops during this period. He was the son of John 
and Amy (Wyllys) Pyncheon, whose father, William Pyncheon,f was 
one of the original founders of Agawam (Springfield, Mass), where 
John, Jr., his grandson, was Clerk of the Courts and Register of Deeds, 
and who died there Apl 25, 1721, though he and his wife had lived pre- 
viously in Boston and Ipswich. While living in Boston MARGARET 
joined the Ipswich Church by "taking the covenant" Jan 18, 1673. 
Children— John (d July 12, 1742), Margaret (m Capt Nathaniel Down- 
ing), and William (b 1689, d Jan 1, 1741, m Catherine Brown, dau Rev. 
Daniel Brown of Ipswich). 

NATHANIEL, youngest child of William and Mary (Rogers) Hub- 
bard, was born in Ipswich in 1650 and is thought to have removed 
to Boston after 1680. He is supposed to have been in business with 
his brother John as a merchant. Further traces of him are lost. The 
Ipswich town records from 1634 to 1700 are missing; only a few scat- 
tering ones now appear. If Nathaniel died there at an early age, 
which might possibly be the case, there is now no record of it in the 
town books. 

JOHN, second child of Rev. William and Mary (Rogers) Hubbard, 
was born in 1648 in Ipswich, Mass. He joined Ipswich Church Jan 
25, 1673, and was made freeman Oct 11, 1676. His talents were of a 
commercial cast, and he soon became a leading merchant of Boston,

when he was a child he, with his mother, removed to Boston, thence to 
Hartford, and finally to New Haven, Ct., where he died Oct 29, 1773. 
At the age of 17 he was apprenticed to a physician. In 1730 the 
Rector and Trustees of Yale College conferred the honorary degree of 
Master of Arts upon him " for his eminent attainments in the Latin and 
Greek languages, as well as in philosophy, medicine, poetry and belles- 
lettres." He was for many years a Representative of New Haven, 
Judge of Probate, and Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, and 
was frequently mentioned as "Colonel." In 1724 he m (1) Mrs.

H 3 JOHN— b Jan 24, 1727, d in Meriden, Ct., Nov 18, 1786; graduated 
at Yale College in 1744, and invited by Congregational Church of Meri- 
den to become their pastor in Nov, 1767. This call caused widespread 
discussion throughout the State, his views being in advance of his time. 
An active minority opposed his ordination, which finally took place 
June 22, 1769. At length his uniform courtesy to his opponents, amiable 
disposition, and pleasing manners healed the breach. His theological 
views accord with those of the Cong. Church of the present day. He 
was thrown from a sleigh during the winter of 1783, which caused his 
retirement from the ministry and led to his death about two years later.

which are dated February 19, 1814, and November 10, 1814, Norwich, 
Ct. He also served fourteen days as private, doing guard duty under 
" Old Put " at Horseneck during the Revolution. Though professedly 
a farmer he owned and conducted a stone quarry, saw-mill, and brick- 
kiln, and filled various civil offices, being Justice of the peace, tax col- 
lector of New Haven, a chorister and afterward deacon of the First 
Society (now Center Church) of New Haven. He lived in an old stone 
house that was supposed to have been built by his grandfather, Dr. John 
Hubbard. It stood about one mile east of historic Judge's Cave, near 
Springside Home. Through attention to the public weal and neglect 
of his own private business interests he became poor and lost his landed 
possessions. He m in 1775 (0 Anna Atwater (d Feb 2, 1778) and had

liberties and privileges." In the list of 29 persons submitted by the

DOUGLAS HUBBARD, second son of Henry and Sophia (Whitney) 
Hubbard, was born in Pittsfield, Mass., June 21, 181 7, and died in 
New York City Sep 18, 1885. He married March 2, 1837, widow Lo- 
retta Watson of Washington, D. C. (d Sep 12, 1877) whose children 
changed their name from "Watson" to "Hubbard." DOUGLAS 
HUBBARD was a scholarly gentleman, and was the Consulate Clerk 
at Hobart* Town, and Melbourne, Australia, from 1850 to i860, when he 
returned to the United States and was appointed by Secretary Chase to 
a si, 600 clerkship in the Second Comptroller's Office, Treasury Depart- 
ment, Washington, D. C. This position he filled from 1861 to 1878, 
when he removed to Saint Johnland, Long Island, where he gave his 
entire time to studying the science of genealogy and making numerous 
family "trees" for various Hubbard descendants. He was a rapid 
and tireless worker in the cause, the mainspring of his efforts being un- 
bounded enthusiasm and a natural aptitude for statistics. His work 
was confined chiefly to the descendants of George Hubbard of Wethers- 
field, Milford, and Guilford, Ct., though he traced out some of the branches 
of the William Hubbard, Ipswich, Mass., branch, whom he regarded as a 
tble brother to this George Hubbard. Nothing has arisen since his 
time to prove or disprove this theory. In his genealogies he recorded 
George Hubbard of Middletown, Ct., as the son of George Hubbard of 
Wethersfield, Milford and Guilford, Ct. During his last years he lived 
in New York City and left a valuable collection of genealogical data, 
much of which, unfortunately, fell into unappreciative Hubbard hands. 
A part of this collection was a monster " Hubbard Tree " fully thirty- 
two feet long, and about two feet wide. This is a marvellous specimen

of patience and research. His daughter, Agnes, however, has nearly as 
large a " tree " or roll, which, though received very late, lias been made 
some use of by the compiler. It is twenty-eight feet long by sixteen 
inches wide. Children — Marcellus (b 1862, d y), Sophia (b 1863), 
Agnes (b 1S65), Isabel (b 1867), Elfreda (b 1868), and Mantel (b 
1S70, d y). 

EDWIN HUBBARD, eldest child of Harvey and Jennie Doane 
(Galpin) Hubbard, was born in Berlin, Ct., July 29, 181 1, and died in 
Bennington, Vt., April 13, 1891. He married in Berlin Oct 14, [832, 
Hannah Root Xorth (b Oct 14, 181 6), dan of Lemuel and Rebecca 
(Goodrich) Xorth, and had ten children, four of whom, surviving 
childhood only, died before he did. EDWIN HUBBARD was a born 
genealogist, and collected data from boyhood to old age about his own 
and numerous other families, comprising Bradford, Goodrich, Heald, 
Drury, Towne, Powers, and others. His inventions of Ancestral Reg- 
isters or printed tabular forms were most excellent models for copying 
data into. 

In early life he was in the carriage business, but abandoned that in 
1838 to remove " away out west " to Millersport, Ohio, where in a log 
cabin he kept store for awhile. In 1S43 he returned East to Meriden, 
Ct., and engaged in the insurance business. He started in 1854 a bank- 
ing business at Cape May, N. J., but returned to Meriden and opened a 
news office, which he maintained until 1S59, when he left for Chicago, 
and lived at Oak Park, a suburban villa, for many years. Here he did 
a ^reat deal of genealogical labor, being remarkably conscientious and 
painstaking in preparing his data. The couple were now childless, and 
accepted the invitation of their grandson, Charles Hoadley, to pass their 
remaining days at his home in Bennington, Vt. His widow died May 
4. [894, at Clinton, Ct. Children — Walter Norkis (b June 10, 1S34, d

9RQE Hubbard 

of GUILFORD, Connecticut. 

Children's children are the crown of old men ; and the glory of children is their fathers. — 

Proverbs, 17 : 

A not inconsiderable portion of the following data of GEORGE HUBBARD, his wife, and their 
descendants has been copied from a huge manuscript volume filed in the town clerk's office at Guil- 
ford. The original of this volume was compiled from town records by Dr. Alvan Talcott, A. M., dur- 
ing a residence of 50 years in Guilford, who bequeathed it to the New Haven Colony Historical Society. 
It embraces 178 family pedigrees of the early inhabitants of Guilford and is fairly correct. The com- 
piler does not indorse all data found therein, however. In the list of GEORGE HUBBARD'S children 
is mentioned a son "George Hubbard, born 1633, removed to Greenwich." No son George is men- 
tioned in his will. He must either have died before his father, or else the date of his birth is incor- 
rect, also the statement that he removed to Greenwich, if we attempt to reconcile the identity of this 
George with the George Hubbard who settled in Middletown and died there March 18, 1684-5. Thebe- 
fore-mentioned volume gives the birth of GEORGE HUBBARD of Guilford as 1594. If George Hub- 
bard of Middletown was born in 1601, according to his will, it is hard to become reconciled to the 
theory that he was the son of GEORGE HUBBARD of Guilford, though he might have been a cousin. 
Old England records could alone unweave this tangle. The compiler does not believe American 
records can do it. 

GEORGE HUBBARD was born in England, and probably somewhere 
in the southeastern section, that part being numerously populated 
by Hubbards. There remains nothing but conjecture to determine the 
exact locality, the towns enumerated by various chronologers being so 
plentiful as to shatter all faith. It has been written that he was born 
near Boston, Lincolnshire; in Ockley and Guildford, Surrey; Wethers- 
field, Essex; Wakefield, Yorkshire; in the shire of Devon and in the 
county of Kent. A slight preference perhaps might be given to Essex 
or Surrey. 

Tradition says that he came first to Watertown,* Mass, about 1633. 
Traces there of him, however, are faint, which is not singular, as his 
stay there was short. His wife was Mary Bishop, who died in Guilford, 
Ct, September 14, 1675. She was the daughter of John and Anne 
Bishop, who first stopped in Wethersfield and then in 1639 removed to 
Guilford, Ct., where John Bishop was one of the seven pillars or pro-

prietors of the town, and where he died in February, i66r, leaving John 
who married Susannah Goldham, Stephen who married Tabitha Wil- 
kinson, Betsey who married James Steel, Esq., and Mary who married 

May 6, 1635, permission from the General Court of Massachusetts Bay 
was granted " to the inhabitants of Watertown to remove themselves to 
any place they shall think meete to make choice of, provided they con- 
tinue still under this government. * * * The occasion of their de- 
sire to remove was, for that all towns in the Bay began to be much 
straitened by their own nearness to one another, and their cattle being 
so much increased. * * * In the summer of 1635 a few explorers* 
from Watertown established themselves where Wethersfield at length 
grew up. * * * October 15, 1635, about sixty men, women and little 
children went by land towards Connecticut with their cows, horses and 
swine, and, after a tedious and difficult journey, arrived safe there." 
With these migrators went GEORGE HUBBARD, his family, his 
father-in-law, John Bishop, and his family; also another George Hub- 
bard, a Thomas Hubbard, and a William Hubbard — relationships un- 
known, if any existed. 

The winter of 1635-36 was a bitterly cold one. Snow and ice sur- 
rounded their poorly-constructed habitations, and their furniture and 
provisions, sent by ships, did not arrive, being frozen up in the Con- 
necticut River; so that they had to subsist that winter upon " acorns, 
malt and grain." 

In 1636 GEORGE HUBBARD and Samuel Wakeman were author- 
ized by the General Court of Connecticut, assisted by " Ancient " 
(Thomas) Stoughton, "to consider the bounds and survey the breadth 
of Dorchester (Windsor) towards the Falls, and of Watertown (Wethers- 
field) towards the mouth of the River." The bands of migrators from 
the vicinity of Boston settled Springfield, Mass., Windsor, Wethersfield, 
and Hartford, Ct. 

Though entirely outside the jurisdiction of the Massachusetts Bay 
Colony, according to their English charter, Massachusetts still kept 
Wethersfield (called Watertown until February, 1637), under her pro- 
tecting aegis and governed it by " commissioners " the first year. There 
was much friction in the Wethersfield Church. Governor John Win- 
throp wrote that " the rent at Connecticut grew greater, notwithstanding 
the great pains which has been taken for healing it; so the church of 

* William Barshum (Bassum or Barsham). John Clarke, Abraham Finch and three sons— Abraham, 
Daniel, John; (Sergt.) John Strickland, Robert Rote and three sons— Robert, John, Daniel; Andrew 
Ward, William Swayne, Leonard Chester, and probably Nathaniel Foote. It is claimed that prior to 
these explorers came about September, 1633, John Oldham and three others and established upon this 
site a trading-post to obtain beaver skins from the Indians. 


Wethersfield itself was not only divided from the rest of the town, ete., 
but of those seven which were the church four fell off, so as it was 
conceived that thereby the church was dissolved, which occasioned the 
church of Watertown here (whieh had clivers of their members there 
not yet dismissed) to send two of their church to look after their mem- 
bers, and to take order with them." GEORGE HUBBARD may have 
been a member of this "Watertown, Mass., body, though no record exists 
of it. He represented Wethersfield at the first colonial General Court 
under the constitution of 1639, and, consequently, must have been made 
a freeman prior to 1639, freemen alone enjoying' such important honors. 
Wethersfield* originally comprised a parallelogram of land extending 
east and west nine miles and north and south six miles, and was divided 
north and south by the Connecticut River so as to leave three miles by 
six miles of territory upon its eastern bank. This strip of 54 square 
miles was bounded on the north by what was afterward the Hartford line, 
upon the south by what was afterward the Mattabesett or Middletown 
line, on the east by the wilderness, and on the west by Tunxis, or Farm- 
ington. This tract was purchased from Sowheag, sachem of the Matta- 
besetts, Wongunks, or Black Hill Indians. The original deed is not 
on rile. GEORGE HUBBARD was acquainted with the particulars of 
the transaction, however, and to confirm and strengthen the title to this 
purchase the General Court placed upon file his deposition, which he 
forwarded from Guilford, at the Court's request. The following is a 
literal copy of the certificate: 

Guilford, June 16, 1065. 
Thin is to certify unto all whom it may concern: 

That upon his certaine knowledge, by the advice of the Court, Wethersfield men gave so much 
unto Si >wheag, as was to his satisfart ion, for all their plantations lyeing on both sides the Great River, 
with the Wands, viz : six miles in bredth on both sides the River. &c., six miles deep from the River 
westward, and three miles deep from the River eastward. Thus testifyeth George Hubbard.

Taken upon oath before me, Willm. Leete. 

This is a true copy of the originell, being examined and compared therewith this 18 of May, 1667, 
pr. me: John Allyn, Secretry. 

The eastern portion of this tract extended from (now) Hartford line 
to Roaring Brook or Sturgeon River, and was called Naubuc Farms. 
It was the first instance in Connecticut of a town being cut out from 
another town, for which permission was given in 1690, but which did 
not actually occur until October, 1693. About 1653 the eastern colony 
practically enjoyed independence however, being exempted from 
"training" with the western colony. This eastern portion of Wethers-

water River, in Hinckford Hundred, Esse* County, Eng., a celebrated English sheep-raising town in 
its day. 



field, or Naubuc Farms, was named Glastonbury, which subsequently 
became North and South Glastonbury, and in 1639 was surveyed by 
GEORGE HUBBARD, a "prominent surveyor," by order of the Gen- 
eral Court, and apportioned to the original settlers. The apportion- 
ments or lots extended from the river east three miles, and were very 
narrow, that all might have water on the west, fertile meadows in the 
centre, and wood and pasture land on the east. They were called the 
" three-mile lots" and were numbered up to 44, GEORGE HUBBARD'S 
being No. 14, in North Glastonbury. It was 32^ rods wide, contained 
195 acres, and laid between Thomas Uffoot's [Ufford] on the north and 
George Wyllys' (Gov. Conn. 1642) on the South. Afterward George 
Wyllys' tract of 30 rods wide by 3 rods broad, containing 185 acres, 
was purchased by GEORGE HUBBARD'S descendants and some of 
the tract remained in the family until 1850 or later. In 1672 this eastern 
section of Wethersfield was enlarged by an addition of 30 square miles 
upon its eastern boundaries, called (some of it) Eastbury, and gave 
Glastonbury* considerable dimension. 

The west side of the river, Wethersfield proper, has lost some of its 
territory, Stepney Parish or Rocky Hill being taken out, also Newington, 
and a part to form Berlin. The river also has encroached by a change 
of channel at the expense of Wethersfield and to the advantage of Glas- 
tonbury, which gained thereby Manhannock Island, comprising about 
200 acres, and mentioned in GEORGE HUBBARD'S deposition. On 
this island lived Thomas Wright and his descendants. There being 
(apparently) no burials of Hubbards in the cemetery at Wethersfield 
proper, it is a fair inference that none occupied the western portion. In 
this cemetery is the oldest slab the writer has found in New England. 
It is quite well preserved, and at its head has a very crude coat-of-arms 
scratched unskilfully upon it, representing, perhaps, two winged horses 
(Pegasus), with ermine or squirrel-tail "charges" scattered about the 
escutcheon. It reads: " Here lyes the body of Leonard Chester, armiger, 
[armorer, or esquire] late of the towne of Blaby, and severall other 
Lordships in Leicestershire, Deceased in Wethersfield Anno Domini 
1648. Etatis 39." Mount Lamentation was named thus because this 
man was once lost there in the dense woods and nearly perished before 
being found by the inhabitants who beat drums, fired guns, and made 
outcries and lamentations to attract his attention. 

As a stimulus to punctuality and early rising the Connecticut Colonial 

* Alonzo Bowen Chapin, D. D., editor, historian, lawyer, and pastor of St. Luke's Church, Glaston- 
bury, in 1850 and several years thereafter says that "an apostolic splendor irradiates Glastonbury " 
(Fulgor Apostolicus Glastoniam irradiat). The wide thoroughfare, lined with elms, the numerous old 
houses, quaint, roomy, and substantial, certainly produce upon the emotional inner senses a kind of 
sophorific delight or peaceful calm. 



records read: " 163S-9, April 5 * * * Thurston Rayner, GEORGE HUB- 
BERTE (members of General Court from Wethersfield) are fined is a 
peece for failing att the hower appointed which [is] 7 of the Clocke." 

GEORGE HUBBARD lived about three years in Wethersfield, and 
then with his neighbor Thomas Ufford, William Fowler, Rev. Peter 
Pruden and others went southward to the shore of Long Island Sound 
and settled in Milford, being assigned Milford Island as his grant. He 
was one of " those persons — whose names are hereunder written — who 
are allowed to be free planters, having for the present, liberty to act in 
the choyce of public officers for the carrying on of public affayres 
in this plantacion. * * * George Hubbard: came from Weth- 
ersfield." There are 44 names in the list of original Milford settlers ; 
which appears on the first page of Book 1 of Milford Records and bears 
the date of entry of November 20, 1639. These 44 planters represented 
only heads of families. He was admitted to the church there January 
15, 1644. 

Before 1650 he sold Milford Island to Richard Bryan (this island con- 
tained 10 acres and was called Poquahaug by the Indians, and was their 
favorite summer resort) and removed with his son-in-law, John Fowler, 
to Guilford, where his wife's parents, John and Anne Bishop, had pre- 
ceded him, and September 22, 164S, he bought there the property of 
Jacob Sheaffe (" one of the seven pillars of Guilford "), who with his 
family went to Boston, where he died in 1659 a prominent merchant, or 
leather dealer, a street in Boston being named after him. GEORGE 
HUBBARD was admitted to church membership in Guilford October 
6, 1650. During years 1652-55-57-58-60-62-65-66 he was a Deputy 
Magistrate. In 1666-67 ne was a member of the Assembly at the union 
of the Hartford and New Haven Colonies. In May, 1670, the Court in- 
vested him with authority to " joyne persons in marriage." "He was 
a man of high standing and prominent in the politics of his times," and 
died in Guilford in January, 1683. His will is on file in Vol 1, pages 96-97 
(new numbers) Probate Records Office, New Haven, and is dated May 
23, 1682, with a codicil dated Dec 30, 1682; inventory, taken May 30, 
l68 3> is ,£5 6 4- 08. 06. He was buried in the graveyard then located 
south of where now is the soldiers' monument in the centre of the vil- 
lage green (see picture), a rectangular square patterned after the 
original New Haven plat. This cemetery was used up to 181 7, when 
two new ones, East and West, were begun. The pond holes were filled 
by leveling down the hillocks, the Episcopal and Congregational 
churches and the town hall removed, and the old headstones were scat- 
tered about the town. Some were taken to the new cemeteries and 
tumbled up against the fence, some were claimed by descendants, while 



others were flatly laid around the Congregational and Episcopal churches 
to catch rain-water from the eaves and to make runways for small boys. 




Children — Mary, John, (? George), Sarah, Hannah, Elizabeth, Abi- 
gail, William and Daniel. 

MARY was born in England about (?) 1625 (Dr. Talcott gives 1634), 
and came with her parents to Watertown, Mass., Wethersfield, Milford, 
and Guilford, Ct. She married in 1647 John Fowler (son of William 
and Sarah Fowler of Milford and New Haven), who first appears on the 
Guilford records June 30, 1650. He was a marshal there from 1652 to 
1 66 1, and Deputy Magistrate from 1661 to 1664. From August 3, 1669, 
to 1673, he was " sole deacon of the church," and also Deputy to the 
Colonial Court until his death, which occurred Sep 14, 1676. He lived 
on the corner of what is now Broad and Fair Streets, diagonally oppo- 
site to his father-in-law's house, which faces the beginning of Fair 
street. His widow died April 13, 17 13. Children— Abigail, Mary, 
Abraham, John, Mehetable and Elizabeth. 

SARAH was born in 1635 in Wethersfield, Ct., and married Daniel 
Harrison, son of Richard, Jr., who came to New Haven in 1644. This 
family of Harrisons (Samuel, Benjamin, John, Joseph, George and 


Daniel) removed to Newark, N. J. There was a large exodus of Con- 
necticut families into that locality about or prior to 1665, that settled 
Newark, Elizabethtown, and Bergen Point. 

HANNAH was born in 1637 in Wethersfield, Ct., and baptized at 
Milford, Ct., May 26, 1644. She married Jacob Melyen (spelled in 
George Hubbard's will " Molynoe "), son of the Patroon, Cornelius 
Melyen, of New Haven, in 1662. He had a brother Isaac (possibly 
Samuel of Fairfield was his brother also). They came from Holland 
to New Amsterdam, thence to Connecticut before 1655, when Jacob and 
his father ("Mr.") took the freeman's oath. After 1663 Jacob and family 
removed to Boston, where he was a leather merchant and constable. 
His will, probated Dec 26, 1706, names widow, HANNAH, and children 
Samuel (H. U. 1696) and Abigail (who married William Tilley). 
HANNAH (HUBBARD) MELYEN died in 1717. 

ELIZABETH was born in 1638 in Wethersfield, Ct. She married 
very late in life Deacon John Norton, a widower, son of Thomas and 
Grace Norton, of Guilford, formerly of Ockley, Surrey, Eng. He had 
first married Hannah Stone, dau William and Hannah Stone; he was 
made freeman in 1667, and died March 5, 1704. It is not known which 
wife was mother to his children — John (d y), John, Samuel, Thomas, 
Hannah, Mary — but probably his first wife. 

ABIGAIL was born in 1640 in (probably) Wethersfield and baptized 
May 26, 1644, in Milford, Ct. She married, October 14, 1657, Humphrey 
Spinning (died Nov, 1689), of New Jersey, nephew and legatee of 
Humphrey Spinning (Spinage or Spenning), who came from the Dela- 
ware River country in 1639 to New Haven. He had cousins Mary and 
Edward, and was of German parentage. She is supposed to have died 
after 1662 and prior to 1682. Children — John (b Feb 11, 1659, d Feb 27, 
1 712, m Mch 16, 1687, (1) Deborah Bartlett, d Dec 14, 1692, and Aug 20, 
1694, (2) Rachel Savage, b Apl 15, 1673, dau John and Elizabeth 
(D'Aubin) Savage of Middletown; she afterward m (2) Phineas Hall of 
Middletown), David (b Feb 5, 1661), and Abigail (b abt 1662).

Antiquity ! Thou wondrous charm, what art thou, that heing nothing, art everything 
thou wert, thou wert not antiquity!— Charles Lamb. 

Yet when 

DR. CHARLES HUBBARD of Brooklyn, X. Y., is the owner of a 
rare old Dutch Bible that came from Holland in early colonial 
days. Upon its fly leaf is written the marriage of " Roelef Schenck to 
Geertie Hendricks May 29, 17 14," with the names of their children, after- 
ward born, indicating its early possession by either a Schenck or Hen- 
dricks family. It then passed into the possession of Dr. Jacobus Hub- 
bard, senior, of Monmouth County, X. J., who transmitted it to his son 
Elias. From Elias it went to his son William Henry, who bequeathed it 
in turn to his only son, Dr. Charles Hubbard. 

The act of authority to print this volume was granted Sep 6, 1698, by 
the " Bergermeesters and Regeerders of the Stadt of Dordrecht" to 
•• Pieter Keur en Amsterdam, Dordrecht, and Pieter Rotterdam in com- 
pagnie," who issued it in 1716 from Amsterdam, the birthplace of the 
art preservative of all arts. It is printed in various sizes of old German 
type in sometimes one, two, or four columns, copiously annotated, upon 
durable hand-made paper, and bound in stout calf (embossed) with 
heavy brass clasps to preserve its shape. The illustrations are numer- 
ous, symbolical of the important sacred events, and beautifully printed 
fr< 'in steel plates, included in which are maps of the world and the Holy 
Land. It includes the Xew Testament, Old Testament, and certain 
Apocryphal chapters, and is in a fine state of preservation, inscribed 
therein being the family records of several Hubbard generations upon 
blank leaves inserted for the purpose. It makes 709 good-sized pages. 

Another old Bible in the possession of a Hubbard family is a very 
interesting one now owned by the Rev. George Henry Hubbard of Nor- 


ton, Mass. It came to him through his father, Henry Hubbard of Sher- 
brooke, P. Q., who in turn received it from his brother the late Rev. 
Austin Osgood Hubbard. It is a copy of Theodore Beza's New Testa- 
ment and was printed in the year 1582. Theodore Beza, the great re- 
former of Geneva, Switzerland, published in 1556 in Latin a translation 
from the Greek; in 1565 he published his first Greek Testament with 
his Latin and an old Latin translation in parallel columns with copious 
foot notes. A copy of this edition is now on file in the Congregational 
Library in Boston. In 1582 a second edition was published, making 
three editions, including the Greek, to which the one now referred to 
belongs. We are happy to be able to give a reproduction of the title 
page which is in an excellent state of preservation. The title page when 
translated into English reads, " The New Testament or New Covenant 
of our Lord Jesus Christ, of which two translations are given to the 
text, the one old and the other the new one of Theodore Beza, carefully 
edited by him. THEODORE BEZA'S NOTES, in which he has also 
revised in this third edition his response to Sebastian Castellio in which 
many passages of the New Testament and in his own notes are 
thoroughly discussed, stands printed separately." The legend on the 
tree, " Do not taste the top," will undoubtedly bear investigation, and 
our readers are entitled to whatever conclusions they may draw from it. 
This book is remarkably well preserved, considering its great age, 
and it is exceedingly to be regretted that there is now no one living 
who has any information as to how it came into the Hubbard family. 
The book was evidently rebound in the early part of the 19th century, 
and the edges of the leaves were trimmed at that time, so that several 
interesting memoranda which were written in the margin have been 
mutilated and their history or worth can not be exactly determined. 
The Testament was written in two volumes, and they are bound to- 
gether in this book. On page 120, Vol. 1, appears a pen sketch of the 
head of the family bird, and on page 526 of the same volume a pen 
sketch of the same in full. On page 279 appear the names, "John," 
"Lock" and " Eliott," without definite connection. On page 338 are 
part of the names " Hubbard," "John," and on page 351 are parts of 
the words, "John," "Eliott," and the letters "Cam." This latter in- 
scription may stand for Cambridge, and, if so, the question naturally 
occurs, " Was this book at one time in the possession of the famous In- 
dian apostle ?" A collection of names appears on page 369, of which 
we give a reproduction. In Vol 2, on page 327 appear the words " Eli, 
Ejus, A.D," and underneath, "John, 17-." Upon the title page when 
held to the light appear a number of names, some of which can not be 
distinguished. Among them is the name "John Brown," and on the 

' I i< I s T I

opposite side of the tree on the outer edge, " John Eliott to Chester 
White" (or "Williams"). The surname cannot be accurately deter- 
mined. There are two well drawn English letters a trifle below the 
middle which are intended, evidently, for initials, "J. L." On the fly 
leaf appears the inscription, " Austinius O. Hubbard, Colegii, Valensis, 
Novi Portus, A. D. 1823." From what has been said it will appear that 
the book has been in the family at least since some time in the 18th 
century. It is possible that the signatures on the margin are those of 
some former collegiate Hubbard. In itself, aside from family associa- 
tions, the book is a valuable one, and it is especially so to the Hubbard 
family by reason of its long sojourn among them. The pages of the 
book bear marks of age, being yellow and much stained; but all the 
pages, except the title page, are intact, and like the members of the 
family in which its last years have been spent, age but gives a dignity 
and glory without disfigurement. 

Still another old Bible, more ancient than either of the foregoing ones, 
is owned by a Hartford, Ct., family of Hubbards. Five editions of this 
volume (Protestant) were printed between 1568 and 1585, and this copy 
bears the date of 1570. It is usually called by scholars the "Bishops' 
Bible," because, under the supervision of Archbishop Mathew Parker,* 

* The American Encyclopedia of Printing relates that he was the liberal patron of fine printing 
and employed an eminent English printer to publish his works, one John Day (Daye, Daie, or D'Aije), 
b 1522, d July 23, 1584. Day published the Tyndale Bible, Mathews Bible, and some 245 other works, 
many of them being handsomely illustrated. His device was a rising sun with a man awakening a 
slumbering figure in the foreground, and the motto: Arise, for it is Day. This was intended to con- 
vey his religious devotion to the cause of the Reformation as well as a pun upon his name. Being an 
enthusiastic adherent of John Rogers and John Fox he was imprisoned by Queen Mary. On the 
accession of Queen Elizabeth he was given the highest offices in the Stationers' Company and espe- 
cially befriended by Bishop Parker. Under his patr< mage he cut the first Saxon letter, which was used 
by the Bishop in a homily published in 1567 and in the Saxon Gospels edited by Fox in 1571. John Day 
was twice married and had 26 children, 13 by each wife. One of them, Richard Day, succeeded him 
and printed exclusively religious publications. He afterward abandoned printing and succeeded Fox 
as minister at Reigate. Two other sons also became clergymen and authors. Another (supposed) son, 
Stephen Daye, b 1611 , became the first printer in America, arriving in 1638, where he printed the Free- 
man's Oath, Almanac (by William Pierce, mariner), and Bay Psalm Book, translated from Hebrew by 
Rev. John Eliot and Rev. Mr. Weld. Stephen Daye died in Cambridge, Mass., in 1668. 

John Day was buried at Bradley-Parva, Suffolk County, England. Upon a curious mural entabla- 
ture in the chancel are inlaid in brass, effigies of himself and first wife, kneeling beside a table, before 
which are two babes in swaddling clothes. Behind Day's figure are grouped six sons; behind his wife 
five daughters. The inscription is as follows, cut in Old English letter: 

" Here lyes the Daye that darkness could not blind, 

When popish fogges had overcaste the sunne. 

This Daye the cruell nighte did leave behind. 

To view, and shew what blodi actes were donne. 

He set a Fox to wright how martyrs runne. 

By death to lyfe. Fox ventured paynes and health 

To give them light; Daye spent in print his wealth. 

But God with gayne returned his wealth agayne. 

And gave to him as he gave to the poore. 

Two wyves he had. pertakers of his payne. 

Each wyfe twelve babies had. and each of them one more; 

Als [Alice] was the last encreaser of his store. 

Who. mourning long for being left alone. 

Set up this tombe, herself turned to a stone."

seven bishops, besides the Archbishop, out of thirteen translators, trans- 
lated it from the Latin. It is supposed to have been brought from Eng- 
land in 1633-5, or thereabouts, by George Hubbard, of Middletown, 
though this can not be proven. 

When Queen Elizabeth was in 
the twelfth year of her reign, and 
vShakspeare but twelve years of age, 
she sanctioned the printing of this 
Book to circumvent the adoption of 
the Geneva Bible. Her half sister, 
Queen Mary I., who preceded her 
and reigned five years, had been 
very active in causing to be de- 
stroyed all the Protestant Latin edi- 
tions. When Elizabeth succeeded 
her in 1558 she heartily encouraged 
the preparation of this Protestant 
version. In fact, her interest led 
her vanity into having the title- 
page adorned with an illustration 
of herself being transported into 
heaven upon the shoulders of an- 
gels. This frontispiece has disap- 
peared from the Book by time's 
ravages, but other illustrations 
abound therein. The coat-of-arms 
of different dignitaries appear at 
the beginnings of various chapters. Archbishop Parker, of Canter- 
bury, placed his seal at the opening of Genesis with the inscription, 
Mundus Transit et Concupiscentia Ejus, and his sovereign's initials 
underneath, " E. R.," meaning Elizabeth Rcgina. The next illustration 
is that of William Cecil, or Lord Burleigh, a layman translator, who 
caused his " coat " to be inserted at the beginning of the chapter of 
Isaiah. Around the " coat " is the buckled garter with the well-known 
inscription, Honi Soit qui vial y poise, showing him to have been a 
member of the most noble Order of the Garter, the highest honor ever 
conferred in knighthood, which was instituted by King Edward III. in 
1350. Following his crest comes that of the Earl of Leicester, a great 
favorite of Elizabeth's, whose crest decorates the beginning of Joshua, 
and which also shows upon it the symbols of the Order of the Garter 
with the additional motto underneath of Droit et Loyal. Probably these 
nobles translated these various Books. The King James Bible was pat- 


terned after this largely, though the translations in the " Bishops' Bible " 
are far more unique and startling. As a substitute for the headline 
" Song of Songs," or Canticum Canticorum, over the Book of Solomon, 
there appears in astonishing and bold letters "The Ballet of Ballets." 
In Jeremiah, Chapter VIII, verse 20, is found the words: "Is there no 
triacle [treacle] at Gilead? Is there no phisition there? Why then is 
not the health of my people recovered ?" In the Douay Bible, published 
shortly afterward, "rosin "is used instead of " triacle," which is now 
read as "balm." In Ecclesiastes the admonition to " Cast thy Bread 
upon the Waters " is rendered in this Book in the almost unintelligible 
language of " Lay thy bread upon wet faces, and so shalt thou find it 
after many days." It is replete with many other equally interesting 
phraseological expressions. 

This old Book is now 325 years of age, and very much thumb-worn, 
indicating that our ancestors were in frequent moods of piety. Some of 
the leaves are missing, and it has lately been rebound. Upon one of 
the blank spaces in it is written in scrawling penmanship these words: 
" Georg Hubbard's Book, who lived about the year 1720: Left this Bibel 
to Caleb Hubbord & Died about A, 1785, and left it to Mary Hubbar, 
wife of Capt. Amos Try on," etc. 

This George was probably of the third generation. Though the lineal 
transmission of this ancient heirloom through the early families can not 
be exactly determined, tradition indicates that it descended from George 
Hubbard (who m Elizabeth Watts) to his eldest son, Joseph Hubbard 
(who m Mary Porter), thence to their third son, George Hubbard (who 
m Mehitable Miller), thence to Caleb Hubbard (who m Elizabeth Mil- 
ler), and thence to their daughter Mary Hubbard (who m Capt. Amos 
Tryon); and from the Tryon family it came back into the possession of 
Hon. Charles C. Hubbard (ex-Comptroller of Conn.) of Hartford, Ct. 

The compiler was unable to obtain the privilege of having this valua- 
ble heirloom photographed.

form their duty to the world— Darnel WebsU r. 

JOHN HUBBARD,* eldest son of George and Mary (Bishop) Hub- 
bard, was born in England about 1630 and came an infant with his 
parents to America about 1633. It is claimed by some of his descend- 
ants that he lived a few years in Concord, Mass., with the Merriams, 
relatives of his wife, Mary Merriam. If so, he removed afterward to 
Wethersfield, for his first four children were born there. The Con- 
necticut colonial records show that " at a meeting at Goodman Ward's 
house April 18, 1659, the Company there met engaged themselves under 
their own hands to or by their deputies to move out of the colony into 
the jurisdiction of Massachusetts." Some thirty persons signed this 
agreement, but not all of them kept it. A settlement was accordingly 
begun at " Norwottuck " (Hadley) with Rev. John Russell, Jr.,f as the 
spiritual leader and governing power of the band. With them went 
JOHN HUBBARD and his family of four children and wife MaryJ 

* The compiler begins and continues this article to the end on the assumption that John Hubbard 
who married Mary Merriam of Concord, Mass., was the s<m of George Hubbard and Mary Bishop of 
1 Juilford, Ct., though lie is not convinced of it. Undeniably George Hubbard had a son John, yet the 
writer can not prove that this one was his son. Genealogists (deceased) Edwin Hubbard, Douglas 
Hubbard, and Dr. Alvan Talcott of Guilford, Ct., so declared it (giving birth about 1(130). as also did 
numerous family traditions, while Bond's Genealogies and History of Watertown, Mass., inferred it, 
viz : " supposed to lie the eldest son of George and Mary." 

t He came from Cambridge. Mass., to Wethersfield about 1650. succeeding there Rev. Henry 
Smith. The principal reasons appearing to actuate his removal were a censure received from the 
General Court for "carelessness" growing out of charges preferred against him by Lieut. John Hol- 
lister, whom he had "excommunicated " from his church. His dignity became offended, and, with 
his sympathizers, he went to Hadley. JOHN HUBBARD'S name is in the list of those who went with 
him, so he must have been a "sympathizer." A few persons from Hartford also joined them. 

t It is difficult to identify the parents of this "Mary," unless he married the sister of Robert Mer- 
riam, the universal belief. According to English parish records, however, Robert had no sister 
" Mary." William and Sara Meriam of Hadlowe, Kent, Eng.,had children Joseph, George, and Robert 
'who came to Concord, Mass. i, Susan, Margaret, Joane and Sara. They may have had a daughter 
Mary whose record of birth h is evaded investigators. Joseph (eldest) had wife Sarah (? Stone, dau 


(Merriam) Hubbard, formerly of Concord, Mass., whom he must have 
married about 1648-9 at an early age. He was made freeman Mch 26, 
1 66 1, and had five children born in Hadley. After 1672 he went to 
Hatfield, and died there at the home of his son Isaac in 1702. His will, 
probated in August, 1702, showed seven children then living, Mary and 
Hannah having died. Children — Mary, J 1 John, Hannah, K 1 Jonathan, 
L 1 Daniel, Mercy, M 1 Isaac, Mary and Sarah. 

MARY — b in Wethersfield, Ct, Jan 27, 1650, died young. 

J 1 JOHN— b in Wethersfield Apl 12, 1655, lived and died in Glaston- 
bury, Ct, about 1748, m abt 1676 Mary Wright, dau Thomas Wright 
(and the widow of John Elson), who lived on " Wright's Island " in the 
Connecticut River. He owned the " Hubbard Lots," which his father 
left to him when he removed to Hadley and which were largely aug- 
mented by the purchase of the George Wyllis* tract of 185 acres. On 
this tract is located the old cemetery which adjoins the " meeting-house 
green," donated to the town by JOHN HUBBARD and Samuel Smith 
in 1692, each giving five acres. On it is now the one-story town-hall, 
the congregation having moved into more central quarters and con- 
structed a finer edifice. He owned 365 acres in 17 13, one tract of 205 
acres being "on the Hebron line," and was rated worth ^"102. \os. In 
1707, when Glastonbury had acquired 6,000 acres by a second purchase, 
he was granted 60 acres more with others " in consideration of their ex- 
traordinary charges and good service." In 1704 he was called sergeant 
and was on the school committee, and was permitted to build a saw-mill 
on Roaring Brook. From 1700 to 1724 he served as representative to 
the legislature. Children — J 3 John, J 3 Isaac, J 4 David, J 5 Ephraim 
(see elsewhere), and Sarah (b 1683 in Glastonbury, m (?) Abraham Hol- 
lister — b May 5, 1705 — son of John and Abiah Hollister of Wethersfield, 
and had nine children).

Robert Merriam of Concord." It would thus seem that she was the sister of Joseph, George, and 
Deacon Robert Merriam.

to the apex, is the Hubbard and Merriam burial plat. John Hubbard married a Merriam, but the 
compiler is of opinion that there might have been another, a blood relationship, between these 
families in Old England. 

There is a record, however, in Wethersfield showing that in 1684 the surveyors assigned a lot in

BARD, hoping to improve his earthly fortunes, started for Canada in 
midwinter upon an ox-sled containing his household effects, wife and 
three small children. He followed the course of the Connecticut River 
nearly all the way, stopping occasionally at small settlements until he 
reached a small hamlet called Stanstead, in Canada, just over the Ver- 
mont State line. This place seemed to be the promised land of his 
search, and he therefore stopped, bought a farm and constructed a tan- 
nery upon it. He became soon a leading citizen, his educational ac- 
quirements investing him with power and the positions of magistrate 
and deacon of the church. His knowledge of letters and kindness of 
heart caused him to indite love letters for the illiterate of the vicinity 
and then he afterward married the happy couples. He left a large- 
sized family who gave a good account of themselves. Children (three 
eldest b in Sunderland, balance in Stanstead) — Benjamin Franklin (b

Cling to thy home: If there the meanest shed yield thee a hearth and shelter for thy head; 
And some poor plot with vegetables stored be all that Heaven allots thee for thy board; 
Unsavory bread, and herbs that scattered grow wild on the river bank or mountain brow; 
Yet e'en this cheerless mansion shall provide more heart's repose than all the world beside.— 

Leonidas of Tarentum. 

IN the beginning of this volume is a view taken of an old Hubbard 
house that once belonged to the Swart family. It is located at 
Holmdel, near Red Bank, Monmouth County, N. J. When Rebecca 
Swart married Nov 7, 1785, Dr. Jacobus Hubbard, a surgeon in the 
Revolutionary War, they settled in this homestead, which for years 
prior had been occupied by various generations of the Swart family. 
Since the foregoing date this property has been possessed by descend- 
ants of the Long Island Hubbards, whose first ancestor was James 
Hubbard of Gravesend. Near the house is an old cemetery where Dr. 
Jacobus Hubbard was buried and aUo many others of the family. The 
house is picturesquely situated, and is surrounded by magnificent stately 
trees and makes an interesting landmark in that locality. 

In 1733 John Kent purchased a house and some land upon what has 
now become South Main Street, Middletown, Ct. How long this house 
had been built prior to his purchase is unknown, but it is generally con- 
ceded to be, at least, the second oldest house in town, the Samuel 
Gaylord mansion on Washington Street, built in 1720, being, perhaps, 
older. John Kent died in February, 1775, and left the property to 
Hannah, his daughter, who soon became the first wife of Hon. Elijah 
Hubbard. The house is practically unchanged in its appearance to-day, 
at least exteriorly, and in front of it stands about the largest and most 
majestic elm in Middletown. When Elijah Hubbard died it was inher- 
ited by his daughter, Elizabeth Hubbard, who married Thomas Mather, 
an Albany merchant, and who left it to her son, Thomas G. Mather 


In 1837 Hon. Samuel Dickinson Hubbard, the half brother of Elizabeth 
(Hubbard) Mather, bought it from Thomas G. Mather and occupied it 
for some years. While he lived here he was a member of Congress 
from Connecticut. He afterward moved into a fine mansion on High 
Street, and the property was sold about 1S54 to Jonathan Kilbourne, 
whose daughter, Elizabeth Kilbourne, now owns it. It is to be re- 
gretted that it is now out of the possession of the Hubbard family. 

When John Hubbard (who married Mary Merriam) went from Weth- 
ersfield, or Glastonbury, to Hadley in 1660-61 he had four children, 
Mary, John, Hannah and Jonathan. While living in Hadley five more 
were born, named Daniel, Mercy, Isaac, Mary and Sarah. After 1672 
he removed to Hatfield and located upon the site where now is the resi- 
dence of Roswell Hubbard, one of his descendants. Here John Hub- 
bard died in 1702 and his son Isaac Hubbard inherited the homestead. 
Isaac subsequently removed to Sunderland and was well known there 
as a good citizen and church deacon. Some of his children remained 
in Hatfield upon the homestead. How long the first house stood is not 
known, but it came into the possession of Elisha Hubbard in 1760, and 
then became famous as "Hubbard's Inn." Elisha died Apl 11, 1768, 
leaving five daughters (Hannah, Lucy, Anna, Lucretia and Sarah), and 
two sons (Elisha and John). His widow and son Elisha continued to 
conduct the tavern, which became shortly afterward invested with his- 
toric interest, as Continental troops passed and repassed its doors. Here 
were quartered one entire winter the French staff officers under com- 
mand of Count Rochambeau, who, when ennui was upon them, cut with 
diamonds* their names and epigrammatic sentences of hostile portent 
to their British adversaries. Here also one of General Washington's 
Quartermasters, General Epaphroditus Champion, loved to linger. 
He lingered so effectually that he eventually married Lucretia Hub- 
bard, one of the widow's five daughters, thus proving himself to have 
been a " gallant Champion in peace as well as war." 

The house, built upon the site of the old tavern, sits upon a gradu- 
ated terrace running up from the road, or Hill Street, and is surrounded 
by the most beautiful of towering elms, the cool shade of which in sum- 
mer is a paradise for dreamers and dusty wayfarers. It is to be hoped 
that it will always be inhabited by Hubbards. 

The old Hubbard homestead at Guilford, Ct., is prolific of incident 
and attractive to the eye. September 22, 1648, George Hubbard 
came from Milford (where he had lived nine years after his removal 
from Wethersfield in 1639) and bought land in Guilford from Jacob 

Upon the window panes. 


Sheafe, who thereupon removed with his family to Boston. On this 
land George Hubbard domiciled himself, and at his death bequeathed 
the house and homelot to his youngest son Daniel (the only one of his 
sons who came to Guilford) and made him sole executor. In 17 15 the 
old building was torn down by Daniel and a large and spacious house 
erected upon the old foundations, which was finished in 17 17, and of 
which the engraving is a correct likeness. The roof, however, was 
raised by the fifth Daniel in descent from George some time about 1800, 
and since that period a wing and other additions have been made, so 
that there are now twenty-five rooms in the structure. There have 
been seven Daniels in direct line from George Hubbard of Guilford, 
five of these having been, it is claimed, inheritors of this house and 
homelot, which have never been out of the possession of the family, and 
never will be while there remains kin to leave it to. The house is a 
jutted one and stands on Broad at the head of Fair Street, and is replete 
with old fireplaces, bake ovens, spacious low-ceiling rooms and closets, 
small window-panes, sound oak timbers in the framework, and is in an 
excellent state of preservation. Here Rev. Bela Hubbard, D. D., was 
born in 1739. He owned a part of this house and homelot and sold his 
share to " Mrs. Deborah, Daniel and William Hubbard " May 8, 1790. 
In his deed he states that one-half of the house and homelot was " left 
me by my Honored Father Daniel containing by eftimation, four acres, 
be it more or less," etc. The place is now owned and occupied by John 
Bartlett Hubbard and his family and Miss Mary Linsley Hubbard, who 
possesses the old deed Bela Hubbard gave of it and also the old Linen 
Chest George Hubbard brought over in 1633, which also has always 
been in the family's possession. May this interesting old homestead be 
standing when the " last trump " blows is the fervent wish of all its 
many fervent admirers. 

Where now stands the residence of Mr. Isaac Libby (built in 1826) in 
South Berwick, Me., there was erected early in the seventeenth century 
a stoutly built log structure about fifty feet long and perhaps twenty 
feet in width, which was known all over that section as the Philip Hub- 
bard Garrison House. It is supposed that the first Philip Hubbard of 
Kittery, Me., built the structure and used it both for his family domicile 
and as a fortification for himself, family, and neighbors against savage 
Indian attacks. It fronted the south, and the highway ran close by the 
western end. It was one room deep, and, opening to the south, was a 
door at the corner that entered the bar-room; for in later days it was 
used as a tavern, before which stopped the hungry and thirsty passen- 
gers from the stage coach, together with driver and four horses, to 



investigate the quality of its refreshments for man and beast. This 
stage ran from Berwick to Portsmouth, N. H., and on to Boston, Mass. 
A large chimney arose from the western end, in which the traditional 
back-log crackled and flamed. Further along toward the eastern end 
was another large chimney, with bake ovens, which the family used for 
their private domestic comforts. The beams showed plainly overhead, 
and the walls, it is alleged, were boarded up and down. The family 
door was a huge double one, probably of oak, to resist unwelcome red- 
handed midnight marauders. The tipper part of the garrison house 
jutted over the lower, and opening downward were holes made to fire 
upon the enemy when they approached too near. It was the safest re- 
treat in the vicinity, and stood for over a century. In the rooms were 
the usual old-fashioned household appurtenances, consisting of solid 
chairs, desks, chests, and tables of the hardest wood. The spinning- 
wheel and the loom were also there, as well as utensils for dressing 
leather. It is not known how many rooms were in it, but they were 
numerous and large. There is yet living a lady who lived in it when a 
girl, but her memory fails her as to the number of rooms. Back of the 
old house grew several scraggy-limbed pear trees, the trunks of which 
were nearly the circumference of a hogshead. The fruit of these trees 
was made into a liquor called " perry." Perhaps Philip Hubbard, Sr., 
planted them. Near by, on the edge of Birchen Point Brook, was an 
immense tan-yard, comprising two acres, where Philip Hubbard dressed 
into wearing apparel and shoes the skins of wild and domestic animals. 
The old pits are now beds of flag. The brook has its source at the foot 
of Rocky Hills, and winds its crooked way a distance of two miles or 
more and empties into a creek, up which the tide flows at the south end 
of Birchen Point. The Newichawannock River, about one -fourth of a 
mile wide, was 90 rods away at the western end. Nearly between the 
river and this house was the garrison house of Daniel Stone. There are 
along the route of Birchen Point Brook low places where nothing grows 
but water-grasses, flags, and cat-o'-nine tails — places where the water 
glides over a bed of shining sand; others, where it flows silently under 
the shadow of clumps of alders, where patience sometimes rewards the 
fisher with a few trout. Near the end of the water-way it foams and 
gurgles and .sings over a bed of rocks, once the foundation of a saw-mill. 
The estate extended down to the Fowling Marsh, which was alive 
with screaming, cackling water-fowl, the paradise for the neighboring 
Nimrod. Near the house was a cemetery " 4 rods square, set off to be 
used as a Hubbard Burying Ground forever." Illustrations of these 
points of interest are given elsewhere. The old garrison house has now 
vanished, but it still savors the recollections lingering in the memory of 



old residents and descendants around Berwick, Me., who have had re- 
counted to their eager ears its past historic career and pleasant associa- 

The old Hubbard Homestead at Long; Hill, Ct, is now standing upon 
the soil that in its virgin purity is supposed to have been originally as- 
signed to the first George Hubbard, who helped found in 1650 the little 
settlement of Mattabesett, that afterward became Middletown. It finally 
came to be owned by one of the fourth generation, Nehemiah Hubbard, 
who was born in Middletown July 22, 1721, the son of Nathaniel and 
Sarah (Johnson) Hubbard. Nehemiah erected this house when he came 
to manhood, and it sheltered, beside himself, a loving wife and thirteen 
children. It was, and still is (being substantially unchanged), the typical 
New England homestead, with its adjacent stone walls, apple orchard, 
oak and elm trees casting delightful shade near by, and an old-fashioned 
well-sweep and bucket that will yet raise to your lips the clearest of 
pure water. There is also to be seen near by the long stone horseblock 
and the shallow concaved stone that served to catch and run off the lye 
in the bottom of the leach-tub. In the house is the long, narrow kitchen, 
o-uiltless of lath and plaster, with bedroom at one end, pantry at the 
other, and a huge fireplace between, and across which extends a beam, 
from which still hang the pot-hooks and trammels that supported the 
numerous kettles below, that were in " ye olden time " necessarily filled 
with beats, turnips, cabbages and potatoes, to quiet the clamour of thir- 
teen young mouths. The chimney is an enormous structure of stone, 
with a few bricks at the top, and takes up nearly half the area of the 
house. The rooms are large, but have low ceilings, and in one of them 
could be heard (far into the night many times) the fascinating whirr of 
the spinning-wheel that spun the coarse but durable cloth that enveloped, 
besides the father's and mother's, the thirteen small bodies aforesaid. In 
this house were born, of the thirteen, five trusty and true Revolutionary 
War patriots, namely, Isaac (see elsewhere), Nehemiah Jr. (see Prom- 
inent American Hubbards), Elisha (hereinafter mentioned), David 
(who contracted a brain fever while returning from the army, ultimately 
making him helpless for life), and Jacob (who was a teamster and pres- 
ent at the battle of Saratoga). There were no more sons to volunteer, 
Mathew having died young and Nathaniel also, the latter being swept, 
when a young man, off the yard-arm of his ship while furling sail for a 
less courageous shipmate in a terrific gale off the coast of Ireland while 
sailing homeward. As a fair sketch of the life of a Revolutionary sol- 
dier, the writer presents herewith a copy of a paper read by Mrs. Mary 
Hubbard Bunce before the Wadsworth Chapter of the Middletown (Ct.) 


Daughters of the Revolution, herself the granddaughter of Elisha, one 
of these patriots, and the present owner of the old homestead: 

" Into this house its owner brought his bride, Sarah Sill,* with whom 
he had fallen in love at first sight when she, a blue-eyed slip of a girl 
only twelve years old, was picking wild flowers by the wayside. Here 
was born one October morning a boy for whom stern work was waiting, 
little as he dreamed of it. The fourth child in a family of thirteen, all 
but two of whom lived to maturity, he seems to have brought into the 
world as his special endowment a vigorous constitution and cheerful 
temper, which would do him good service in the trying time to come. 
Small chance was there in that busy time of much petting. The music 
that lulled him to sleep was more likely to have been the whirr of his 
mother's wheel than any lullaby she found time to sing, and after a brief 
reign of eighteen months he abdicated the throne of babyhood in favor 
of a younger claimant. 

" Indeed, they followed each other so rapidly that the poor father, 
hard pressed to find names, seems to have opened his Bible at Genesis 
and, beginning with Sarah, Isaac and Jacob, gone steadily on to the 
New Testament names of Matthew, Nathaniel, Mary and Phebe. Being 
by this time as far along as 2nd Kings, the little one was named Elisha, 
and henceforth, promoted from babyhood, his place was among the 
workers, though he could do no more than rock the little sister's cradle 
or bring kindlings for the fire. How the busy mother of this host kept 
them clothed or even fed is more than a modern woman can compre- 
hend, for all this was in the day when every article of food or clothing 
must be evolved from the raw material. Given the land and the plow, 
the farmer himself must be the third factor in that problem of domestic 
comfort which his busy hands wrought out. Never in this old house 
could the music of wheel and loom cease if this troop of boys and girls 
were to be clothed, and where in the brief twenty-four hours of the day 
she found time for its necessary labors a wiser head than mine must 
tell. Verily the labors of the good wife in Proverbs sink into insig- 
nificance beside such toil as this. Yet it neither shortened nor saddened 
their lives, for this husband and wife kept step together for sixty-six 
years, and came down to the close of their pilgrimage a cheerful pair, 
whom even death could not separate but by a few months. 

* At the home of her father, Joseph Sill, of Lyme or Saybrook, Ct., was built in secret the first 
American torpedo boat, that was designed to blow up part of the British fleet, then anchored off shore 
from there. The project failed because " Long Lige," the navigator, who was to anchor it under 
Admiral Howe's ship, claimed that he became "narvous " at the critical juncture because, in feeling 
for his usual quid of tobacco, there was none to be found, and the " turtle-back" (as it was called) 
thus became unmanageable, and, drifting away from the ship, exploded harmlessly at the appointed 
time. Though doing no material damage, it frightened from their mooringe the whole British fleet. 


" By the time the little Elisha was four years old he was among the 
scholars of the district school, where he learned (if he learned nothing- 
else) that the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever. 
An active, hardy boy, he could compel the most prosaic employment to 
yield him some amusement, and having learned the trade of a cooper 
he used to divert himself by placing six of his finished hogsheads in a 
row (one head being out of each) and then jumping from the ground 
into the first, from this into the second and so on through the row with- 
out touching his hands to their sides. 

" He came to manhood in those stirring times preceding the Revolu- 
tion, when the air was full of the spirit of liberty and the new idea of 
the rights of the people was battling with the old idea of royalty to a king. 
It was inevitable that he should hear these great principles fully dis- 
cussed, for if one may judge the fathers by the children, reading 
heredity backwards, as it were, I know that quiet household was stirred 
to its depths by the unusual excitement, and that the heroic words of 
Patrick Henry and John Adams thrilled those boys as a hundred years 
later their descendants were thrilled when the command rang out, ' If 
anybody attempts to tear down the Flag shoot him on the spot.' 

:> Middletown was fully in sympathy with the patriots of Boston and 
had sent substantial aid to that beleaguered town, while a few of her 
citizens had fought at Lexington and Concord. Fired by such exam- 
ples it was only natural that at the age of twenty-three he should enlist 
in the Continental army. His youngest daughter has told me that this 
enlistment was for three years, but the Connecticut Official Records has 
it, ' For the war,' from which it appears that he meant to fight it out 
to the end. The exact date of enlistment is June 17th, 1776, just one 
year after the battle of Bunker Hill. His regiment was attached to 
AVadsworth's Brigade and was until October stationed at Bergen 
Heights, now Jersey City. In October it moved up the river near Fort 
Lee, then under General Greene's command. In November it was sent 
to assist in defending Fort Washington and on the fall of that strong- 
hold was captured by the British. 

" And now, if never before, our young volunteer learned to ' endure 
hardness as a good soldier.' In fact, endurance was about the only sol- 
dierly quality called out by the new circumstances in which he found 
himself. It would tax our credulity to believe all that is told of the 
treatment of these prisoners of war did we not remember Libby, Belle 
Isle and Andersonville. Thrust into the crowded hold of the old prison 
ship Jersey, where a thousand men suffered and died, robbed of 
the barest necessities of life they became so desperate that an armed 
guard was necessary to compel them to man the pumps and keep their 

2 SO 


horrible prison afloat. Transferred after a time to the old Sugar 
House in New York, they gained a little comfort perhaps by their 
larger quarters, though the cruelty of their treatment in no way dimin- 
ished. Their food was scanty and unfit to eat, their clothing hung in 
rags, and weakened by cold and hunger it was not strange that disease 
found them an easy prey, or that despair — that sure precursor of death — 
should settle like a pall over them. On one occasion a number of hal- 
ters was offered them from which each man was bidden to choose one 
wherewith to be hanged. Under these circumstances the man who 
coitld raise a laugh was a public benefactor, and our soldier had his own 
way of doing it. Their prison was on the second floor, from which a 
broad staircase led clown to the door below. Back and forth at the foot 
of this staircase paced the guard ready to shoot any desperate man who 
might be tempted to make a rush for the liberty beyond that door. 
Watching his opportunity when the sentry was at the further end of his 
beat this undaunted prisoner would rush half way down the stairs 
shouting at the top of his voice, ' Damn King George!' and then fly 
back again before the angry sentinel could fire. Often was the musket 
levelled at his head, but he always managed to mix with the crowd in 
time to save himself and enjoy the laugh his sally had raised. But he 
was capable of other moods than merriment, and on one occasion when 
a dying comrade was about to be dragged out by a heartless British 
officer he rushed to the rescue, stood between the dying man and his 
tormentor, vowing that he should be allowed to breathe his last among 
friends. For this he narrowly escaped the bayonet in the hands of 
the angry Englishman, who may well have smarted under the hot in- 
dignation of his prisoner's words. It is easy to understand how one who 
knew him well in after life should say, ' He never counted danger till it 
was past.' 

" The weary captivity came to an end at last through an exchange of 
prisoners, and a day arrived when their last meal served by British 
hands was before them, i, c, hot bread fresh from the baker's oven It was 
scarcely safer than poison for those starved men, and one soldier had 
enough self-control to refuse a morsel, though every fibre of his body 
cried out for food. He earnestly entreated his comrades to deny them- 
selves the dangerous indulgence, but for many the temptation was too 
strong, and some of their number died in the very hour of release. 

" His last act before leaving the prison was to kneel beside a dying 
comrade, receive his last message for home, and then close his eyes 
and wrap his emaciated body in his tattered blanket for burial. He 
lingered so long that the officer in charge came back and hurried him 
away to join his companions. One would think he had had enough of 


war by this time and might plead with a clear conscience that he had 
done his full duty to his country; but we find him the next year vol- 
unteering for the ' Continental Line,' which was recruited throughout 
Connecticut, and was ordered late in the Fall to join Washington's 
army in Pennsylvania. Following this was a winter at Valley Forge, 
where, to quote Mrs. Stowe, ' The American soldiers went on the snow 
with bleeding feet and had scarce anything for daily bread except a 
morning message of hope and patriotism from George Washington.' 
This second term of service lasted a year and a half, and still later he 
enlisted for a brief campaign in defense of the sea-coast towns of his 
native State against a threatened British invasion. 

"The war over at last he came home to enjoy his well earned liberty. 
His four brothers had all served in the army in some capacity, one as 
State Commissary, two as teamsters and one, like himself, in the ranks. 
This last had given, not life, but liberty to his country's cause, for a 
severe cold contracted on his journey home had resulted in brain fever, 
and though he recovered and lived for forty years he was never there- 
after a sane man. The three older brothers soon married, the elder 
receiving a portion of his father's farm and building thereon the house 
now occupied by A. M. Colgrove. A few years later he removed to the 
fertile lands of Central New York, from which came back in time a 
homesick wail to the effect that he never regretted leaving New Eng- 
land but once and that was — always. Another brother became a car- 
penter and built for himself the small house upon which the Old First 
Church meeting house was afterward grafted, and which has figured 
since as school house, boarding house and Home for Aged Women. 
Still another built and for many years occupied the house now owned 
by the heirs of the late S. L. Warner. 

" So it was left to our hero to remain at home and care for father and 
mother and the poor elemented brother for whom no friendly asylum 
could open its doors. Soon he took to wife the sister of a comrade in 
arms, giving one of his own in exchange, and settled down in the home 
of his childhood to repeat in his own family the homely hard working 
life of his ancestors. 

" Nine children grew to maturity around his hearthstone, and again 
the old house hummed like a hive with its busy industry. The promise 
of good citizenship made by the early years of his life was not broken 
in manhood, and the same spirit of fidelity to duty which sent him into 
the army kept him true to his obligations at home. When a new 
meeting house was resolved upon his gift towards the enterprise (a 
large stick of timber) was the first upon the ground, and when the 
building was completed his own little daughter was the first child bap- 



tized in it. As his sons grew to manhood the same roving instinct that 
brought his ancestor from his English home sent two of them to the 
West and in the next generation sent ' Forty-niners ' to California and 
Free State pioneers to Kansas. Five grandsons did valiant service in 
the Civil War to. preserve the Union he helped to found, and two laid 
down their lives in its defense. But long before this one veteran well 
past his fourscore years had answered the last roll call and was at rest. 
No one of his descendants but is proud of the memory of this common 
soldier who did what he could to make this fair land free and inde-

Our ancestry! A gallant, Christian race' 

Patterns of ev'ry virtue, ev'ry grace — William Coicper. 


vS the child is the father of the man so is the mother the parent of 
both. From her blood, bone and sinew, equally with the father, 
comes those complex strains in nature that in maturity blossom into 
qualities we all delight in paying homage to — courage, endurance, per- 
severance and integrity. New England mothers produced daughters 
from the same mold she yielded sons. It is not enough to know this in 
the abstract. We should be moved by a timely justice to prolong her 
memory also, alongside of man's, by the same medium of stone shaft 
or statue, the master's brush, or the enduring lines of the prose writer 
or poet. This we pretend to do, but are a little tardy about it, also in- 
frequent in occasion. 

It was a New England woman who fought two years in the Revolu- 
tionary War in a Massachusetts company with her musket in hand 
before her sex was suspected. It was a New England woman who car- 
ried her husband upon her back into the city of Quebec during Arnold's 
campaign after he had been left to die of exhaustion. It was a New 
England woman who, with her maid and a young boy, killed her ten 
Indian conquerors in an early Indian war in Maine, escaped, and lived 
many years afterward to relate the circumstance. This shows that 
occasion makes the u<oman as well as the man. 

The picture of these old ladies is a good type of what was the composi- 
tion of our pioneer woman, is most pleasant to look upon, and agreeable 
and instructive to know about; and, furthermore, let us hope, an in- 
spiration in the fading twilight of our American history that will serve 
to lead us gently back into those old-fashioned channels through which 
flowed the^streams of human benevolence, Christian charity and pure 
godliness. Not that these good and noble old ladies were heroines of 


(Descended from George Hubbard cf Middletown, Ct.) 


Indian or British Wars, but that there shines in their characters what 
called out that heroism that in their sisters crystallized into acts of 
heroism when the occasion came. 

The daughters of a Revolutionary soldier and a mother disciplined in 
goodness and truth they naturally inherited the prime virtues of earth 
and heaven; they were deft housekeepers, intense patriots, fine singers, 
good Bible and English scholars and full of vim and the spirit of indus- 
try. In their countenances we see intelligence, determination and in- 
tegrity. Beneath we see cheerfulness, good nature, vivacity and wit. 
Every year until past the age of seventy they met in annual reunion, 
played jokes upon each other and sang with great gusto and tremendous 
volume the songs they learned at the singing-school in the country 
school-house. Each one took her musical part, and when the Sapphic 
Ode was rendered the ceiling would nearly crack and the roof slowly 
raise. Here is the first verse of the Sapphic Ode which they sang with 
such intense unction: 

When the fierce north wind, with his airy forces, 

Rears up the Baltic to a foaming fury; 

And the red lightning, with a storm of hail comes rushing amain down. 

How the poor sailors stand amazed and tremble: 

While the hoarse thunder, like a bloody trumpet. 

Roars a loud onset in the gaping waters quick to devour them. 

In the refrain Anna, who sang in a low key, would stop long enough 
to say, " That's base, but I have to sing it." All eventually married ex- 
cept Mary, the youngest, and all lived to be eighty and over, while three 
of them reached ninety and more. Their aggregate ages amounted to 
524 years, 8 months and 7 days. Martha married Uriah Hayden of 
Essex, Ct., and died in her ninety-fourth year; Rebecca married 
Chauncey Wetmore of Middletown, Ct., and died in her ninetieth year; 
Anna married Augustus Phillips of Ithaca, N. Y., and died in her 
eighty-second year; Sarah Sill married Josiah Meigs Hubbard of Mid- 
dletown, Ct., and died in her ninety-third year; Phebe married Seth S. 
Hall and died in her eighty-third year; and Mary died unmarried in her 
ninety-third year. 

In proper order under the head of Descendants of George Hubbard 
of Middletown, Ct., will be found their exact ages in years, months and 
days. May the shades of their goodness and graciousness fall benignly 
upon many coming generations.

Remember the relation that bindeth you to unity, and prefer not a stranger to thine own kin— 

Robert Dodsley. 

(The following dates are only approximately correct. The compiler has been unable to obtain 
family records from descendants of this line.) 

WILLIAM HUBBARD, youngest son of George and Mary (Bishop) 
Hubbard, was born in 1642 in Connecticut (probably Milford). 
He married Abigail Dudley and removed to Greenwich, Ct., before 
1664. He owned land there in 1667, and prior to 1672 bought " Miose- 
hasseky " of the Indians in common with 26 others. They were styled 
the " 27 proprietors of 1672," and called their tract Horseneck and later 
West Greenwich. This is where Gen. Israel Putnam made his famous leap 
with his horse, though the name was imposed because of the shape of 
the tract, which jutted out like a neck far into the sound and was a 
famous public horse pasture. 

Between 1664 and 1750 mention is made of the name " William Hub- 
bard " ten times in the land records there, meaning sometimes the 
father and sometimes the son. It is thought WILLIAM afterward re- 
moved to Stamford, where he died in 1684.* Children— Abigail,

George, William and possibly others. Of Abigail (b 1670) nothing is 
known. George continued to live in Greenwich, where he was born in 
1675 and died in 1688. * He is mentioned in a land record there of 1684. 
There are no further traces of him in Greenwich, though at a later 
period another George is mentioned seven times in the land records, 

*Dr. Alvan Talcott's records, town clerk's office, Guilford, Ct. 


also John, Abraham and Abraham Jr., probably sons and grandson of 
his brother "William. 

WILLIAM, Jr., supposed eldest son of William and Abigail (Dudley) 
Hubbard, was born about 1670 in Stamford. In 1697 he bought land 
there. In 1704-5 he bought another parcel there west of Mill River on 
Pepperwood Ridge. He died about 1723, having been married to Han- 
nah Mead. Children— Hannah (b abt 1694), Daniel (b abt 1696; in 
Greenwich land records mention is made in 1729 of Daniel, "son of 
William, Jr;" no other traces of him), Mary (b abt 1700), Nathaniel

The places enumerated below were named after Hubbards, but not in all cases could the historic 
name be ascertained. 

HUBARD, Washing-ton Co, Ark. Named after George Hubbard, of 
Neosho, Mo.

named after J. G. Hubbard, who owned land upon which station was 


HUBBARD, Sawyer Co, Wis. Named in 1S88 after C. L. Hubbard, 


HUBBARD, Hill Co, Tex. Named after Gov. Richard Bennet 


HUBBARD, Trumbull Co, Ohio. Named after Nehemiah Hubbard,

company there about 1852. 

HUBBARDSTON, Worcester Co, Mass. Named after Hon. Thomas 
Hubbard, of Boston (see Descendants Richard Hubbard, Salisbury, 
Mass). Tradition says that in appreciation of the honor of adopting his 
name he promised to pay for the window panes of the first meeting-

which the worthy citizens had afterward to glaze themselves, as Thomas 
Hubbard died before the church was completed. 

HUBBARDSVILLE, Madison Co, N. Y. Named after Calvin Hub- 
bard, who settled there in a wilderness in 1813 and made it " blossom as 
a rose." He was son of a Jonathan Hubbard, who left Northampton,

nnmber. He was given six acres of land by c ^ ^ 

with privilege of Wood & keeping cows on the common, 




on a lot adjacent to the land of James Ensign and George Graves on a 
road that ran parallel with the Connecticut River, according to an early 
map, now extant. This road ran from the South Meadow to George 
Steel's land, and then turned and ran across the " ox pasture " towards 
Wethersfield, passing near to the Great Swamp. In 1640 he married 
Elizabeth Watts, daughter of Richard* and Elizabeth Watts, and was 
then assigned a " home-lot " and land upon the east side of the " Great 
River." The colonial records show that "William Swayne and George 
Hubbard were appointed Sep 4, 1640, appraisers of the estate of Ed- 
ward Mason," and, April 24, 1649, Geo. Hubberd was " fined ^10 for 
exchanging a gunn with an Indian." He appears to have disposed of 
his land and removed with about fifteen other families in March, 1650- 
51, to Mattabesett, so called until 1653, when it became Middletown. It 
swelled rapidly in size from accretions from Wethersfield, Ct., and Row- 
ley, Chelmsford, and Woburn, Mass., requiring afterward a division into 
sections known as, respectively, Middletown, East Middletown or Chath- 
am—now Portland, North Middletown or Upper Houses— now Crom- 
well, and, later, Middlefiekl and Westfield. About 1650, or when he left 
Hartford, he carried with him a commission from the Colonial Govern- 
ment as " Indian Agent and Trader for the Mattabesett District." In 
1654 he was made freeman, and settled with his son-in-law, Thomas 
AVctmore, upon opposite corners on the east side of Main Street. He 
owned large land tracts on the west side and on the east side of the river. 
These lands were recorded Sep 5, 1654. He, Thomas Wetmore and two 
other land owners on the west side of the street, gave land for the second 
meeting-house. Steps were taken for erecting the first meeting-house 
Feb 10, 1652. Mr. Samuel Stow of Cambridge College, England, for 
several years temporarily had charge of this congregation. The records 
read: " It was agreed at a meeting at John Halls hous to build a meet- 
ing hous and to make it 20 fot square & 10 fot between sill and plat, the 
heygt of it." This structure was a one-story log house with a palisade 
around it, and GEORGE HUBBARD, living adjacent, was naturally 

* He was an ordinal proprietor of Hartford, and died about 1665 and his widow about 1676. They 
had children besides Elizabeth (Watts) Hubbard, William Watts, who returned to and died in Eng- 
land, and Captain Thomas Watts, who married Elizabeth Steel, sister of James Steel who married 
Ann' Bishop, the sister of Mary Bishop who married George Hubbard of Wethersfield. Captain 
Thomas Watts commanded the troops against the Narragansett Indians in 1675 and the river expedi- 
tion in 1677. He died about 1683 quite wealthy, leaving an estate of £1,383. 10s., of which £100 apiece 
went to the children of George Hubbard; and to his son Samuel Hubbard, whom he brought up, being 
childless, he left his home lot and considerable more property, real and personal. The other daughter 
of Richard and Elizabeth Watts was Eleanor, who married Dec 23, 1647, (1) Nathaniel Brown, son of 
Percy Brown of Snelston, Derbyshire, Eng., and nephew of Lady Elizabeth Morgan and Sir John 
Morgan, Kt., of Chillworth, Surrey, Eng He came over under the charge of Rev. Thomas Hooker 
Eleanor (Watts) Brown then married (2) Jasper Clements of Middletown, b in England in 1614, d in 
Middletown in 1678, leaving a handsome bequest for the support of schools. She then married (3) 
Nathaniel Willett of Hartford and died Sep 28, 1703, leaving Thomas, Nathaniel, John, and Benoni. 




selected as its keeper. Dec 17, 1666, he was allowed "40 shillings for 
sweeping the meeting-house and keeping the glass [hour-glass]." This 
also included the services of his eldest son, Joseph, who beat the drum 
to assemble the congregation and to give warning of the approach of 
Indians. Ten men organized this church formally in 1668 and signed 
its covenant, the first minister, Nathaniel Collins, one of the first gradu- 
ates of Harvard, heading the list of signatures. Much of the " confes- 
sion of faith " is still the creed of the church, which eventually came to 
be known as the Old North Church. The donated land abutted " against 
the eorners of George Hubbard & Thomas Wetmer on the east side — 
Thomas "Wetmer half a rod at ye north corner; George Hubbard half a 
rod wide, three rods in length, against ye body of ye meeting-house and 
from thence out into an angle thre or four rods further," making in all 
thirty -two feet square. In ease the meeting-house was removed the land 
given was to " return to ye proprietors again." This site was exactly in 
the middle of the highway, near or between what are now known as 
Liberty and Grand streets. Most of these covenanters located near this 
meeting-house, at the northern end of Main street, where is now St. 
John's Square, though three resided at " Upper Houses." An appraise- 
ment of his property March 22, 1670, showed him to be worth ^90. 10s. 
!=,(/., and in 1673^132.10^. At his death Ids inventory showed him 
worth ^243. ios., and possessed of a dwelling-house and home lot worth

(at (?) Pessenchaug) on the east side the Great River " worth £% a. tract 
at Long Hill of 226 acres, another " parcell west from the towne " of 300 
acres, one " parcell on the east side the Great River " of 464 acres, and 
the " one-halfe Lott " of 30 acres, a total of over one thousand acres. 
His original will is on file in the Hall of Records at Hartford, Ct, in a 
box labelled "Wills — H, 1647 to 1750," and bears date of May 22, 1681. 
In this document he states that he is " eighty years in age, yet in com- 
fortable health of body & haveing the use of my understanding," etc. 
In his inventory, taken May 13, 1685, it is stated that he "deceased the 
18 of March, 1684." Sergt. Samuel Warde, John Hall, senior, and 
Ebenezer Hubbard were the witnesses. His widow died in 1702. One 
record of him says that he was " highly respected, and of marked integ- 
rity and fairness." He appears at this distance of time to have been 
devout, industrious, and possessed of those sturdy, wholesome qualities 
of mind and body without which the composition of our country to-day 
would not possess that element of robustness and stability that has 
enabled it to so successfully withstand foreign infections, manners, and 
monarchisms. This New England fibre in the governmental-politico 
texture is now, sad to note, becoming gradually obliterated by unAmeri- 
can innovations and practices. He must have been a man of " marked 
integrity and fairness " to have been selected by the colony as its Indian 
Trader. Much judgment had to be used by this representative of the 
colony in these dealings. Promiscuous trading by any one was forbid- 
den, as fire-arms and fire-water were frequently bartered by indiscreet 
persons, which produced direful results. This resulted in the selection 
of one man to do the trading for all. On his judgment and prudence 
much depended. He must have erred, however, at one time, for the 
Colonial Court fined him £10 for exchanging a gun with an Indian. In 
a spirit of charity, his descendants are privileged to conjecture that he 
might have regarded the gun as an old and harmless one and incapable 
of going off and hurting any one. 

GEORGE HUBBARD and his widow were buried in the Middletown 
Riverside Cemetery (near the original log church), laid out in 1650, and 
lying triangularly on the west bank of the Connecticut River, close to 
the Union Depot, and within a stone's throw of where he resided. This 
cemetery was laid out shortly after the year 1750, and was the only 
burying-ground until 17 13, the inhabitants upon both sides of the river 
using it. In it are several tombstones bearing the years upon them of 
1600. These are mostly of blue slate, upon which the lettering better re- 
tains its contour than upon the brown sandstone, though the slate some- 
times flakes off and is thus lost. Upon the Portland side of the Con- 



necticut a new cemetery was started in the winter of 17 12-17 13 because 
the river was impassable, a funeral procession bearing the body of a 
young child being prevented from crossing and compelled to open a new

one then and there where are now the stone quarries. Tradition locates 
GEORGE HUBBARD'S grave close to the burying-ground entrance, 
fronting west, on St. John's Square, but no headstones show where he 
or his widow's dust is mouldering This ancient graveyard will soon 
disappear. Already the octopus railroad has fastened upon two sides 
of it, and the shrill locomotive whistle is daily sounding an alarm to the 
resistless dead that they must make way for the progressive living. 
Sacred dust has no commercial value, and wild vine-clad mounds and 
crumbling, tottering tombstones, are no match for cormorant corpora- 
tions. Children — Mary, Joseph, Daniel, Samuel, George, Nathaniel, 
Richard and Elizabeth.

* The North Society (Upper Houses— now Cromwell) of Middletown in 1714 consisted of 49 mem- 
bers and the pastor. Rev. Joseph Smith. The following quaint extracts are taken from the church's 
old record book: " Att a meeting of the north society in middletown february 18, 1713-14, the return 
of the committy was that, provided the society give mr. Smith a comfortable maintenance he will 
settel with us. * * * Att ye same meeting ye society agreed with sergnt Clark to make the body 
of seats in the meeting house for eight shillings for each seat. * * * Att ye meeting march 27, 
1714, the society made choice of Joseph raney, a committy man, to carry on ye school house with 
serg. savag and John sage. * * * Att ye meeting february 1, 1714-15, the society agreed that what 
the forty shillings on the thousand pounds and ye town money doth not reach to maintain the half

records as assistant to his father in keeping in order the first church in 
Middletown, of which his father was one of its ten founders in 1652, or- 
ganized officially in 1668, and was deputed to beat the drum to call the 
congregation to worship and also to alarm them in case of attack by In- 
dians. Lands were recorded to him in 1667. The inventory of his es- 
tate, taken in December, 1686, is filed in Book 4, page 248, Hartford

Smith of Derby, Vt. He moved in 1 800 into what was then called "The Xew 
State," settling at Windsor, Vt. In 1S13 Asahel and his older brother, 
Phineas, were engaged in a mercantile business at Windsor, where they 
also kept a tavern, Asahel making two trips a year with a double ox 
team to Boston to buy supplies for their store. In 1828 Asahel invented 
and received a patent for a rotary pump, which was adapted for houses 
or for larger uses in factories, water works, etc. For over ten years he 
manufactured these pumps in all sizes. They were also made into fire 
engines, on the same rotary principle of a series of leather cups inside a 
nder, sucking the water up, and forcing it out through a "goose 
neck." One house pump that was made in about 1840 is still in constant 
use in New Haven, Ct. The business was carried on under a corpora- 
tion known as " The National Hydraulic Company," with factory at 
Proctorsville, Vt., and afterward at the State Prison in Windsor, where 
Asahel was warden. He also made guns at the prison, in partnership 
with his son-in-law, Nicanor Kendall. The pumps, guns and fire en- 
gines were sold all over the United States, in all principal places, 
Asahel being salesman and traveling quite extensively. In 1S30 oneof 
the large rotary pumps was furnished the city of St. Louis for its water 
works. It was propelled by a steam engine of twenty horse power, 
drawing water from the Mississippi, and forcing it through 1,300 feet of 
iron pipe, supplying the reservoir, 104 feet above the level of the river. 
In part payment for this pump, a collection was taken up by the Chamber 
-mmerce of St. Louis, to make up what the city authorities could 
not pay at that time, but this was not quite sufficient, so Asahel took a 
white horse in settlement, which horse he drove across the prairie to 
Chicago, thence took it by steamboat through the lakes to the Erie 
Canal as far as Albany, and then over the hills to Windsor, Vt. The 
old settlers of Windsor still remember this old white horse. While

West on business Asa h el was pleased with the appearance of Daven- 
port, Iowa, and entered up a quarter section for settlement. In 1839 
he sold out his business in Windsor and settled down as a farmer, "away 
out West " in Iowa. He afterward went out as a leader of a party of 
surveyors, executing a contract for surveying government land. He

his younger days a skilled mechanic, and after superintending in the 
pump factory of his father at Windsor, and being assistant warden in 
the prison, he went to Deep River, Conn, to make the pumps, under a 
contract with Ezra Williams, who had bought the State right. It was 
here he was married, his eldest son being the publisher of this gene- 
alogy. When this boy was still in dresses, Mr. Hubbard slipped on the 
ice and was laid up for several years. This accident changed the whole 
course of his life, as, being obliged to take tip lighter employment, he 
canvassed Middlesex County for books, magazines, &c. Having the 
exclusive agency for " Uncle Tom's Cabin," he sold over 2000 copies in 
the county. In 1S55 he gave up his book store and removed with his 
family to Painted Post, N. Y., where he was bookkeeper and cashier 
for Bissell, Stevens & Co., a large lumber concern. In i860 he returned 
to New England and occupied a similar position with Eli Whitney, as 
secretary of the Whitney Arms Co., at New Haven, in the then only 
private gun* factory in the United States, which was kept very busy 
during the Civil War. This position he resigned in 1865 to go to Bos- 
ton, where he accepted a position of trust with Wm. L. Bradley (after- 
ward the Bradley Fertilizer Co). In 1870 he became interested in the 
American Timber & Mfg. Co., a corporation of New York, and went to 
Yicksburg, Miss., where immense quantities of the finest black walnut 
lumber was bought and milled under his direction for the northern 
market. In 1875 the large gate of the cotton compress swung to in a 
gale, striking him on the head, resulting in injuries and sickness 
which e\ entually caused his death He was always noted for his

was invited to a seat in Deacon Meigs' pew, wherein sat Elizabeth 
Meigs, the pious deacon's charming daughter. She became Mrs. Jere-

his father's farm, but upon reaching manhood indulged his mercantile 
propensities by selling goods through Virginia, North Carolina and 
Tennessee. This brought him a competence, and he returned and pur- 
chased the farm in Long Hill District, Middletown, of his grandfather, 
Deacon John Hubbard, which had descended to a daughter, and upon 
her marriage had temporarily gone out of the Hubbard name. Here 
he passed his remaining days, earning a reputation for industry, integ- 
rity and uprightness of character. He was of the better class of farm- 
ers, of fine physique and presence (see portrait), and a member of the 
North Congregational Church* in Middletown that his ancestor, George 
Hubbard, with nine others, founded in 1668. He also filled with great 
credit various offices of trust and responsibility, being for many years 
a Justice of the Peace, when such office was of considerable import- 
ance. He had ten children, of whom two died young, and the others 
he fairly educated. His youngest son inherited the farm and estate, 
which has been in the family for about two centuries, and which is yet 
in the family name. Children (all born in Middletown) — Herbert R.

S 9 MATTHEW— b in Middletown Apl 29, 1783, din Ashtabula, Ohio, 
July 9, 1869, m Nov 4, 1803, at Trenton, Oneida Co, X. Y., Mary Willard 
(b in Wethersfield, Ct., June 17, 1785, d in Ashtabula Sept 5, 1865), dau 
of Simon and Sarah (Robins) Willard. At 15 he came with his parents 
to Trenton, and May 4, 1804, set out on horseback for Ashtabula, then 
a small settlement on the shore of Lake Erie. He arrived in 12 days. 
Here he acted as land agent for Xehemiah Hubbard of " Old Connecti- 
cut," also for Samuel Mather and Elijah Hubbard, all very extensive 
land owners. He spent his winters in the East with his family. 

In the winter of 1807-8, he took his wife and infant son (leaving a 
daughter with grandparents) as far as Erie, then a small village of log 


houses, where he left them and continued on to Ashtabula, cleared 
eight acres of land, girdled as much more, and built a log house on the 
south ridge. In April following he brought his wife and son, then six 
months old, on horseback, mostly over an Indian trail, to their future 
home; and thenceforth, during years of joy and sorrow, they became 
part of the band of permanent pioneers, and were noted among their 
neighbors for their good looks, which descended in a great measure 
to their children. 

Among the first in opening and constructing highways and turnpikes, 
he was, also, one of the chief early projectors and promoters of a rail- 
road from Ashtabula to the Ohio river, now, at last, by another genera- 
tion realized. In the "War of 181 2 he went as volunteer, under Captain 
Payne, to defend the threatened frontier. After the war there came an 
era of immigration, on foot, horseback, and by wagon, and no oppor- 
tunity to reasonably assist the settlers was neglected by him. The Rev. 
John Hall, who arrived in 1S11, in a paper furnished to the Ashtabula 
County Historical Society, states that " he had a large family of small 
children, was a farmer, land agent, and surveyor, and one of the prin- 
cipal business men, public-spirited, liberal, helpful to the poor, and 
hospitable and kind to strangers and way-worn travelers." He filled 
acceptably the offices of appraiser, township clerk, postmaster, and 
associate judge of the county court. One of his important life labors 
was acting in successful conjunction with Hon. Elisha Whittlesey, M. C, 
cure great harbor improvements for Ashtabula. Children — Mary

threatened by the English Navy on Lake Ontario. In 181 7 he was com-

known as a farmer, and for 20 years justice of the peace. His large

William Henry Hubbard, Duluth, Minn., writes of him: "Among the 
brightest recollections of my early boyhood is the serene face of this 
grand old man. While the elders loved and respected him, to boys he 
was a magnet. Retired from the active work of life he read a little, 
watched the thermometer, and brightened the lives of all around him. 
To his grandson and myself his society was the acme of entertainment, 
and his precepts the perfection of wisdom. At the distance of half a 
century I recall his silvered head and pleasant laugh as he joined in 
our games, and am reminded— profitably, I hope— of the halo that will 
eternally crown the head of that good gray grandfather " His daughter 
Maria (b 1806) m Hon. Thomas Fullerton and had William Hubbard.

grandfather, Joel Hubbard, came to Missouri from Kentucky in [825). 
Dr. HUBBARD has added some reputation to his otherwise well-known

THOMAS HUBBARD (descended from John Hubbard of Pomfret, 
Ct.), eldest son of Benjamin and Chloe Eldridge (widow of James 
Eldridge) Hubbard, was born in Smithfield, R. Lin 1774, and died June 
16, 1838, in New Haven, to which place he came from Pomfret, Ct., 
after leaving Smithfield. When he was 16 years old his father died, 
leaving him to provide for his mother and several younger children, 
which responsibility he successfully assumed. He was schooled in the 
science of medicine and surgery by Dr. [Albigence ?] Waldo, once an 
army surgeon, and at 21 was practicing as " Dr." THOMAS HUB- 
BARD. Nearly his whole life was devoted to raising his profession to 
the highest scientific elevation. He was a member of the Connecticut 
Legislature for several terms, both as Representative and Senator, 
President of the State Medical Society, and actively engaged in further- 
ing the prosperity of such institutions as the Asylum for Deaf and 
Dumb, the Retreat for the Insane, and the State Hospital. He was 
called to the Chair of Surgery at Yale in 1829, which position he filled 
until his death. He married Apl 14, i799> Betsey Gray (d Feb 7. 1N.5). 
daughter of Thomas Gray, and had Frances Harriet (m Simeon North, 
Pres. Hamilton Coll., N. Y.), Thomas Gray (d insane in Hartford Hos- 
pital), Benjamin Russell (d while in the Navy m the Mediterranean 
Sea), Edward (d y), and William. Dr. HUBBARD then married his

1836, William Huntington Russell and had Lucy Gray, Frances Harriet, 
Henrietta Lee, Mary, Talc ott, Huntington, William Huntington, Thomas 
Hubbard, Philip Gray, Edward Hubbard and Robert Gray). 

SAMUEL BIRDSEY HUBBARD (descended from George Hub- 
bard of Middletown, Ct.), eldest son of Charles and Delia S. (Birdsey) 
Hubbard, was born in Wadesboro, N. C, June 13, 1833, where his father, 
with his four brothers, Asa, Elisha Sears, Jacob and George Stocking, 
had come to make their respective fortunes. They were all successful, 
and returned to Middletown one by one with their families to enjoy the 
modest results of their industry until their days were closed. The 
subject of this sketch, however, remained South and entered into an 
active mercantile career, coming North in 1861 and remaining in Mid- 
dletown until the close of the war, when he returned South and engaged 
in the hardware business. Mr. HUBBARD appears to be president of 
nearly every important corporation in Jacksonville, viz.: The Citizens' 
Gas Light Co., The Jacksonville Electric Light Co., The Southern Sav- 
ings & Trust Co., and The Main Street Electric Railroad. He is also 
president of the " S. B. Hubbard Co.," wholesale and retail dealers in 
hardware, steam and gas fittings, etc., which supplies many Southern 
business houses His son, Samuel Birdsey Hubbard, Jr., is secretary of 
the firm. Mr. HUBBARD did not reach the apex of business success 
by short cuts towards the gaol nor by the assistance of rich relatives. 
He traveled the arduous paths that most self-made men do, and his 
many true Middletown friends rejoice that a poor boy against trying 
odds in a chilly world stands out so prominently now a victor over 
adverse circumstances, circumstances not mentioned by himself, but 
which came to the notice of the writer of this sketch, nevertheless. In 
February, i860, Mr. HUBBARD married his cousin, Almira T. Hub 
bard (b June 25, 1839), daughter of Asa and Sarah Anne (Tryon) 
Hubbard. Children— Carrie (b Jan 4, 1861), Miriam (b Oct 18, 1862, d 
Oct 23, 1867), Marie Louise (b Jan 6, 1866, d Dec 30, 1869), Myra Tryon 
(b June 15, 1869, d Jan 15, 1870), Samuel Birdsey (b Mch 8, 1871), 
Archer Stanford (b May 23, 1874), Albert Tryon (b Dec 2, 1876, d 
Jan 14, 1877), and Thomas Rowland (b Nov 3, 1883, d June 22, 18S6). 

SAMUEL DICKINSON HUBBARD (descended from George 
Hubbard of Middletown, Ct.), son of Elijah and Abigail (Dickinson) 
Hubbard, was born in Middletown, Ct., Aug 10, 1799. In 1819 he grad- 
uated from Yale University with the expectation of adopting for a life's 
vocation the legal profession. With this intention he began by reading 
law with his uncle, Judge John Dickinson, of Troy, N. Y. The require- 
ments of the times, however, led him to engage in manufacturing in- 

Merchant, Jacksonville, Fla. 

(Descended from George Hubbard of Middletown, Ct.) 



dtistries, and he became connected for several years with the Pamecha 
Manufacturing Company and also with the Russell Manufacturing 
Company as agent, and, finally, treasurer. His sound judgment and 
skillful financiering brought the latter company through several critical 
periods of monetary dangers. This line of business experience made 
him an ardent protectionist, and in politics a Whig; thus the Whig 
party selected him as their standard bearer from 1845 to 1849 to repre- 
sent them in the 29th and 30th Congresses. There he engaged in active 
and scholarly debate and attracted the attention of public men. When 
the Hon. Millard Fillmore became President he showed his admiration 
for his qualities by selecting him as his Postmaster-General, which place 
he filled with credit to himself, to President Fillmore and to the nation 
from Aug 31, 1852, to March 7, 1853. 

Mr. HUBBARD was not unmindful of the demands made upon him 
by educational, religious and benevolent societies. His heart was 
always with them, and he earnestly identified himself with the spirit of 
their aims and purposes. In 1854 Wesleyan University conferred upon 
him the degree of LL. D., of which institution he was trustee from 1831 
until his death. He married in Feb, 1853, Jane Miles, daughter of Isaac 
Miles of Milford, Ct. There were no children, His niece, Miss Susan 
Carrington Clarke, descended from Hon. Stephen Hopkins (a signer of 
the Declaration of Independence) through Admiral Esek Hopkins 
and John Hopkins Clarke (Senator from Rhode Island), occupied a 
daughter's place in his home circle until his death, which occurred Oct 
5, 1855, in Middletown, Ct. 

WALTER HUBBARD (descended from George Hubbard of Mid- 
dletown Ct.), eighth child of Jeremiah and Eunice (Prout) Hubbard, 
was born in Middletown, Ct., April 23, 1828, and attended the common 
schools and the Chase Preparatory School while not engaged upon his 
father's farm. Believing his fortunes lay in a mercantile direction, he 
entered as clerk a store in Meriden, Ct., and from 1852 to i860 was en- 
gaged in the dry goods trade and manufacturing. In 1854, with N. L. 
Bradley, the Bradley & Hubbard Manufacturing Company was founded, 
now doing the largest manufacturing trade in its line of any in the 
world, and having stores in Boston, New York and Chicago. Their im- 
mense factory at Meriden, Ct., covers seven acres of ground and em- 
ploys hundreds of workmen, who earn good wages and never strike, 
and whose welfare is most carefully looked after by the firm. They 
manufacture lamps, lighting fixtures, bronzes and art metal goods of 
an infinite number of designs and varieties. 

Mr. HUBBARD is deservedly wealthy, and applies the money accu- 
mulated by his energy, industry and keen business ability to the most 


appropriate and humane purposes. His integrity is marked, and his 
business record and private life clean and spotless. For his adopted 
town he erected the finest hotel in the State, and gave it a famous New 
England name, " The Winthrop." He has traveled extensively, circling 
the world with friends in 1883-4. His library is well selected, and with 
no desire for political preferment frequently tendered to him he devotes 
his leisure moments among his books and art treasures. Mr. HUB- 
BARD is President of the Bradley & Hubbard Manufacturing Com- 
pany, the Meriden Trust & Safe Deposit Company, besides being a Di- 
rector in different institutions and banks. He is also a member of the 
Union League Club, the New England Society and the American < 
graphical Society of New York City. In 1852 he married Abby Ann 
Bradley, daughter of Levi Bradley, of Cheshire, Ct., and sister of his 
partner, N. L. Bradley. She died four months after marriage, in Feb- 
ruary, 1853, aged 20, from fever contracted in nursing her mother, then 
undergoing a serious and fatal sickness. She was a very beautiful 
young woman and possessed of many virtues. Mr. HUBBARD never 
married again. 

LEVERETT MARSDEN HUBBARD, son of Rev. Eli and Georgi- 
anna (Leach) Hubbard, was born in Durham, Ct., April 2^, 1S49, and edu- 
cated at Wesleyan Academy, Wilbraham, Mass., and Wesleyan Univer- 
sity, Middletown, Ct. He graduated from the Albany (X. V.) Law 
School in 1870, and settled in August of that year in Wallingford, Ct., 
where he has earned distinction as one of the first criminal lawyers in 
Connecticut, being at one time counsel in the famous Hayden-Stannard 
murder case, and also the case of "Anderson, the Swede." Leading 
corporations throughout the country have also used his legal talent 
to advantage. His executive ability, sterling character, and high stand- 
ing in business circles had naturally led to his selection for many 
administrative positions of trust, responsibility and honor. 

In 1872 President Grant appointed him postmaster at Wallingford. 
He was reappointed successively until after the inauguration of President 
Cleveland in 1885, when he resigned with an unexpired commission of 
three years. In token of their appreciation, without regard to party, 
his fellow-citizens tendered him a farewell banquet. < >ther important 
positions he has held have been Borough Attorney since [870, member 
of the Board of Education, vice-president and director in the ; 
National Bank of Wallingford since its organization in 1881; also vice- 
president and director of the Dime Savings Bank since 1884, being now 
its President. In 188 1 he was elected trustee of the Wesleyan Academy. 
hisalma mater. He was elected in 18S6 the first Judgeof the Muni 
Court of Wallingford, which position he still holds. He is associated 


with John W. Ailing, one of Connecticut's leading- lawyers. In 1886 
Mr. HUBBARD was elected Secretary of State by the largest vote 
given any candidate for a State office in that election, and during his 
two years of service in that important and honorable position he gained 
universal honor and esteem for the intelligence, fidelity and enterprise 
that marked his administration. 

The mother of Mr. HUBBARD, Georgiana Leach, was the daughter 
of a prominent merchant of Durham, Leverett Woodbridge Leach. 
She died in 1852, and Mr. HUBBARD spent his childhood with his 
grandparents. In 1873 he married Florence Gazelle Ives, dau Wooster 
Ives, of Wallingford. Children — Georgianna, Samuel Wolcott, Lev- 
erett Marsden and Kenneth Davenport. 

JOHN HUBBARD (descended from George Hubbard of Guilford, 
Ct.), son of John and Mary (Ball) Hubbard, of Townsend, Mass., was 
born in Townsend Aug 8, 1759, a posthumous child. He graduated from 
Dartmouth College in 1785 and studied theology, but a vocal weakness 
forced him to abandon a contemplated ministerial career, and he there- 
fore became a teacher, becoming the first Preceptor of New Ipswich, 
(N. H.) Academy in 1789-95. In 1 798-1802 he was the Probate Judge 
for Cheshire Co., N. H., and in 1805 a Professor of Mathematics and 
Philosophy at Dartmouth. He published an " Essay on Music" and 
" Hubbard's Anthems," containing, as the volume relates, " Thirty An- 
thems selected from the works of Handel, Purcell, Croft and other eminent 
European authors " (which were sung in New England Churches for 
many years), "Rudiments of Geography " and the "American Reader." 
August 10, i79i,he married Rebecca Preston, daughter of Dr. John and 
Rebecca (Farrar) Preston, of New Ipswich, N. H., and died in Han- 
over, N. H., August 14, 1 8 10, where a monument, with many Latin in- 
scriptions upon it testifies to his worth as a man, author and scholar. 
His widow died at Dracut, Mass., Apl 9, 1846, aged 77. Children —

RICHARD DUDLEY HUBBARD (descended from George Hub- 
bare of Guilford, Ct.), son of Lemuel and Elizabeth (Dudley) Hubbard 
was born in Berlin, Ct., Sep 7, 1818, and was " early left an orphan with 
means barely sufficient for his education." He graduated from Yale in 
1839, studied law with the late William Hungerford of Hartford, and 
was admitted to the county bar in 1842. This same year he married 
Mary Morgan, of Hartford, Ct. He was a member of the Connecticut 
Legislature and State's Attorney for Hartford County from 1X46 to 
186S with the exception of two years, and a member of the law firm of 
Waldo, Hubbard & Hyde, Hartford, Ct. In 1867 he was elected to 
Congress as a Democrat, but declined re-election. In 1876 he was 
elected Governor of that State, being the first to serve under the two- 
years term. During the late civil war he was an earnest Unionist. He 
died in Hartford, Ct„ Feb 28, 1884, leaving a widow and several 
children. As an example of the self-made man there is probably none 
more shining. From a poor boy, through years of patient toil and a 
studious application to books he forced himself to the top and compelled 
the admiration, respect and esteem of everybody in his native State, not 
excepting his political foes. He was not only the first lawyer in the State, 
but its greatest orator. His mind was eminently a philosophical one, 
and found recreation in the study of philosophical systems and abstract 
speculation. His success was attributed largely to great natural powers. 
superadded to which, though, was scholarly culture and the utmost 
familiarity with the ancient and modern classics. Upon the death oi 
Mr. George D. Sargent in 1886 it was found that a bequest of $5,000 
had been made in his will toward the erection of a statue to Mr. 
HUBBARD. The statue was begun and finished, the designer being 
Mr. Karl Gerhardt, and was im veiled June 9, 1890, in the presence oi 
the highest officials of the State and Bar. A bronze tablet upon it 
bears the brief description: "RICHARD D. HUBBARD, Lawyer, 
Orator, Statesman." It stands in a conspicuous position near the Capi- 
tol Building upon the southeast corner, and is of heroic size, cast in 
bronze, and represents him standing in a natural position as though ad- 
dressing the Court or J urv. Children— Dudley (b 1849), Win eam(d .850), 
Catherine (b 1853), Henry (b 1855), Mary (bi8 59 ), and Nellie (bi86i). 



HENRY GRISWOLD HUBBARD (descended from George Hub- 
bard of Middletown, Ct), second son of Elijah and Lydia (Mather) 
Hubbard, was born in Middletown, Ct., Oct 8, 1814, and attended suc- 
cessively Captain Partridge's Military Academy at Norwich, Vt, the 
Ellington High School and Wesleyan University at Middletown. It 
was as plain as the midday sun that his capacity was abnormally a busi- 
ness one and that he was destined to command men and mark out great 
fields of enterprise. His training field was in New York City in the 
woolen goods house of Jabez Hubbard, in Middletown later, in 1833, at 
the age of 19, as partner of Jesse G. Baldwin, dry goods merchant, and 
at the age of 21 as Manager of the Russell Manufacturing Company. 
Subsequently (1844) he became a Director in the Middletown National 
Bank and President of the Middletown Savings Bank. In 1866 he was 
elected State Senator from the 18th Connecticut Senatorial District, 
but he much preferred business activity to the honors of political prefer- 
ment, and thereafter devoted himself principally to affairs requiring 
the genius of skillful and shrewd business managers. He of course 
became wealthy because of the possession of these faculties and left 
a large estate. Of a decisive nature, he trusted nearly always to 
his own peculiar powers of discrimination in his charitable donations, 
giving alike to Catholic, Jew, or Gentile institutions as the emergency 
appealed to his own particular view. He knew nearly all his employe's 
by name, and was easily approached by them. He was a gentleman of 
magnificent personal appearance. June 19, 1844, he married Charlotte 
Rosella McDonough, daughter of Commodore Thomas* and Lucy Ann 
(Shaler) McDonough. HENRY GRISWOLD HUBBARD died July 2 9> 
1 89 1, and was buried in Indian Hill Cemetery at Middletown. Children — 
Margaret Sill (b Mch 30, 1745, has traveled extensively, lives in Mid- 
dletown), Lucy McDonough (b Nov 6, 1846, d Feb 2, 1876, the wife of 
Samuel Russell of the Russell Manufacturing Company of Middletown) 
and Charlotte Elizabeth (b June 3, 1848, d Mch 14, 1850.) 

* Commodore Thomas McDonough was well known in naval circles and elsewhere as the hero of 
Lake Champlain. He was born in New Castle County, Del., in 1783, and died of ill health Nov 10, 1825, 
while returning from a sea voyage, his body being brought home on the ship in a cask of brandy to 
preserve it, where it was buried alongside of his wife in Riverside Cemetery at Middletown. At 19 he 
w T as in the Navy, and with Commodore Decatur in the Mediterranean, and at one time commanded 
the old heroic "Constitution." His principal brilliant naval exploit, however, was in disastrously 
defeating Sep 11, 1813, upon Lake Champlain the British ships Conflance, Linnet, Chubb, Finch, and 12 
gallies, commanded by Commodore Downie with 95 guns and 1050 men, with his inferior fleet of 86 
guns, 820 men, and ships Saratoga, Eagle, Ticonderoga, Preble and 10 gallies. This was a remarkable 
victory. Commodore Downie surrendered and Sir George Provost who was supporting the British 
fleet at Plattsburgh rapidly retreated, while Commodore McDonough received thanks, medals and 
resolutions of gratitude from Congress and the nation at large. The brownstone shaft in the ceme- 
tery bears record of his distinguished services to his country, and is situated close to the entrance, 
near the site where George Hubbard is supposed to have been buried. 


LUCIUS FREDERICK HUBBARD (descended from George Hub- 
bard of Guilford, Ct), eldest son of Charles Frederick and Margaret 
(Van Valkenburg) Hubbard, was born Jan 26, 1836, at Troy, N. Y., 
where his father was sheriff of Renssalaer County. His early life was 
spent in Chester, Vt., and Granville, N. Y. At the age of fifteen he left 
Granville and went to Poultney, Vt. In 1854 he removed to Chicago 
and there worked at the tinner's trade for three years. He was entirely 
self-educated, being thoroughly inclined toward literary studies and in- 
vestigations, and from the age of fifteen had devoted himself during all 
his spare time to systematic study and reading, being satisfied with 
nothing less than a complete mastery of whatever subject absorbed his 
attention. In 1857 he moved to Red Wing, Minn., and started the 
Red Wing Republican, the second paper in Goodhue County. From the 
very first the paper proved a success, and still remains, a living monu- 
ment to its founder. In the fall of 1858 he was chosen by the people of 
Goodhue County to his first elective office, that of register of deeds. 

In December, 1861, he enlisted as a private in Company A, 5th Min- 
nesota Infantry Volunteers. On the fifth of February, 1862, he was 
elected captain, and March 20, 1862, advanced to the rank of lieutenant- 
colonel. On August 31, 1862, he became a colonel. As regimental and 
brigade commander he participated in thirty-two engagements during 
the war and "for conspicuous gallantry at the battles of Nashville, 
Tenn., Dec. 15 and 16, 1864," he was brevetted Brigadier-General. He 
was mustered out in October, 1865, and returned to Red Wing with 
shattered health, the result of over fatigue and exposure. In 1866, his 
health having returned, he engaged in the grain business at Red Wing. 
In 1 87 2 he was elected to the State Senate, and again in 1874. In the 
fall of 1 881 Gen. HUBBARD was nominated for Governor of Minne- 
sota, and was elected by a majority of 27,857, the largest ever received 
by a Governor elected in that State. In 1883 he was renominated and 
re-elected by a large majority. He is now president of the United States 
Savings and Loan Company of St. Paul, as well as manager of the 
Duluth, Red Wing and Southern Railroad, with headquarters at Red 
Wing, Minn. 

For nearly forty years a prominent citizen of Minnesota, he has honor- 
ably linked his name with the splendid record and the magnificent de- 
velopment of his State. By his conspicuous gallantry during our great 
civil war, by his creditable service in the State Senate, and by his wise, 
efficient and honest administration as governor for five years, he has 
conferred honor upon his State. He married in May, 186S, at Red 
Wing, Amelia Thomas. Children— Charles Frederick, Julia Mary 
and Lucius Virgilius. 


BELA HUBBARD (descended from George Hubbard of Guilford, 
Ct.), fourth son of Daniel and Diana (Ward) Hubbard, was born August 
2 7, T 739, in Guilford, Ct. He graduated at Yale College in 1758 (which 
in 1804 conferred upon him the degree of D.D.), and afterward studied 
theology at King's (now Columbia) College, under the instruction of its 
President, Rev. Dr. Johnson. In 1763 he crossed the ocean with his 
friend Rev. (afterward Bishop) Jarvis to obtain holy orders, there 
being no Bishop in this country. He was ordained Deacon by the Rt. 
Rev. Dr. Frederick Keppel, Bishop of Exeter, in King's Chapel, London, 
Feb 5, 1764, and Priest by Rt. Rev. Dr. Charles Lyttleton, Bishop of 
Carlisle, in St. James Church, Westminster, Feb 19, 1764. Returning 
from England he officiated at Guilford and Killingworth, Ct., until 
1767, when "the Society for Propagating the Gospel in Foreign Parts" 
appointed him their missionary at New Haven. He remained loyal to 
the King of Great Britain during the Revolutionary struggle, and in 
consequence was able to protect the personal property of many of his 
parishioners during the occupancy of New Haven by the British Army. 
It is related of him that he guarded the personal valuables of his parish- 
ioners in his church by standing in its doors with his vestments on as 
the British soldiers passed by. They, recognizing him as of the Church 
of England, did not, out of respect for the cloth, attempt to enter and 
loot the premises. He also, it is further said, saved from destruction a 
young girl who was being pursued by a ruffianly British soldier. After 
the Revolution he organized the Parish of Trinity Church in that City 
and remained its rector until his death, December 6, 181 2, in the 48th 
year of his ministry and the 74th of his age. His tombstone in the 
cemetery at New Haven bears the following inscription: 

Amiable in all the relations of life, he was an able, tender, and diligent pastor, the friend of the 
poor and the comfort of the afflicted. Eminent for his charity, he was greatly beloved. After a long 
life of successful labor in the edification of the Church, he departed in faith and hope, ardent for the 
crown of righteousness. In testimony of their affectionate regard to the memory of their beloved 
pastor, a grateful people have erected this monumental stone. 

A bronze tablet to his memory is also erected in the chancel of Trinity 
Church, where he did such faithful service. 

& facsimile of his signature: 


He married in May, 1768, at Fairfield, Ct., Grace Dunbar Hill, dau of 
Thaddeus and Elizabeth (Isaacs) Hill (born in the Island of Antigua in 
1747, died in 1820). Children — John James (b 1769, d 1823), Nancy (b 
1770, d 1796), Grace (b and d in 1772), Bela (b 1773, d 1841), Grace (b

GURDON SALTONSTALL HUBBARD (descended from George 
Hubbard, of Guilford, Ct), eldest child of Elizur and Abigail 
(Sage) Hubbard, was born in Windsor, Vt, Aug 22, 1802. His 
father, a lawyer, settled in Montreal, Canada, in 1815, where 
Gurdo'n, who disliked schools and books, clerked in a hardware store. 
In April, 1 81 3, he embarked with a party for five years' service with 
the American Fur Company, controlled by John Jacob Astor, of New 
York He passed an eventful life in its employ, enduring the customary 
pioneer's hardship, and participating in the Black Hawk Indian Y\ ar 
with his company of 150 men who marched 250 miles in seven days. 
He was the most famous walker in the Northwest at that time, estab- 
lishing « Hubbard's Trail," and walking in March, 1823, 75 miles over 
a wild rough country between daylight and darkness, and outstripping 
a famous Indian walker who had been pitted against him unbeknown 
to GURDON The Indians called him Pa-pa-ma-ta-be, the swiit 
walker " He entered Ft. Dearborn October 1, 1818, and thereafter was 
closely identified with its (Chicago's) interests. He says Chicago de- 
rived 'its name from the Indian word "chi-cack" (onion) and not from 
« chi-goug " (skunk) as some claim. In . 83 1 he married Elenora Berry, 
of Urbana, Ohio, and on his wedding trip saved from drowning m the 


Ohio River, filled with ice, the young son of Mr. Linton, a merchant of 
Terra Haute, Ind. The grateful father immediately changed the boy's 
name to Gurdon Saltonstall Hubbard Linton. His first wife died in 
1838, and he then married his cousin, Mary Ann Hubbard, daughter of 
Ahira and Serena (Tucker) Hubbard. She was born in 18 14. He 
wrote the first insurance policy in Chicago, established the first pack- 
ing-house, helped organize the first Episcopal church, inaugurated the 
first line of packets between Chicago and Buffalo, built the Lake 
House (the first large hotel), was a director in the company that started 
Chicago's famous water-works and was one of the first trustees to 
found the "Town of Chicago, Feb 11, 1835." He helped organize 
the Chicago Board of Trade, became a member of the State Legisla- 
ture, a director in both a State and a savings bank, and, in fact, was 
active in nearly all of Chicago's important early enterprises. He be- 
came blind during the last two years of his life, and patiently and in 
darkness awaited heavenly light, which came September 14, 1886. His 
name is syonomous with charity, patriotism, integrity and morality. 

JOHN HENRY HUBBARD (descended from John Hubbard of 
Pomfret, Ct.), youngest son of Parley and Anne (Catlin) Hubbard, was 
born in Salisbury, Litchfield County, Ct., in 1S04. He applied himself 
diligently to study in the district schools, becoming eventually a good 
Latin scholar and mathematician, and at fifteen years was qualified to 
teach a district school. He afterward studied law in the office of Hon. 
Elisha Sterling, a prominent lawyer of Salisbury, and before his 
twenty-second birthday was admitted to the bar, establishing himself at 
Lakeville, Ct., where he resided for thirty years. His industry and per- 
severance brought him to the front and secured for him a very hand- 
some estate. In 1847 an d in 1849 ne was elected to the State Senate 
from the Seventeenth District, where he distinguished himself by suc- 
cessful opposition to the movement to bridge the Connecticut River at 
Middletown. Twenty years later, however, he saw that result achieved. 
In 1849 he was appointed State's Attorney for Litchfield County and 
held that office four years. He was known as one of the " Conscience 
Whigs " until the formation of the Republican party, when he became 
an active local leader in it. The cause of Unionism was dear to him, 
and he became its zealous client, sacrificing in consequence much of 
his business and estate to further its integrity. He helped to recruit 
the Thirteenth and Nineteenth Connecticut regiments, and gave freely 
of his funds to the men and their needy families. In the spring of 1863 
he was elected to the Thirty-eighth Congress and re-elected in 1865 to 
the Thirty-ninth from the Fourth District. At Washington he labored 
faithfully for the public weal. 

of Litchfield, Ct. 

(Descended from John Hubbard of Pomfret, Ct.) 


June i, 1864, more than four hundred men of his own count)' regi- 
ment (Nineteenth Conn. Vols.) were killed and wounded. They were 
his neighbors, acquaintances and friends. Many of them had enlisted at 
his solicitation. It was an anxious time. Every hour that he could snatch 
from his public duty he devoted to the soldiers. There was not a day 
that he did not visit one or more of the Washington hospitals. He 
sought out every Connecticut man, sat by their bedsides, wrote letters 
for them and procured for those who were unable medicine and deli- 
cacies at his own expense. No one appealed to him in vain. Many 
dying messages he faithfully transmitted to loved ones at home. He 
assisted friends to identify and obtain the bodies of their dead, and in 
more than one instance he paid for embalming bodies to be sent North, 
which he never regretted. He always declared he had abundant re- 
ward in the success of the cause for which these men fought. After 
his return from Congress he engaged again in law practice and con- 
tinued in it until a short time before his death, which occurred July 30, 

Mr. HUBBARD had three brothers, Joseph Augustus, Hiram Bos- 
worth and Alexander. The eldest, Joseph Augustus, married 
Daphne Bushnell, rem to Bethany, Wayne County, Pa., and had two 
sons, Alonzo and Frederick. Alonzo (d in Geneseo, 111., Jan 31, 1873), m

CHESTER DORMAN HUBBARD (descended from William Hub- 
bard of Ipswich, Mass.), son of Dana and Asenath (Dorman) Hubbard, 
was born Nov 25, 18 14, in Hamden, New Haven County, Conn., and 
died in Wheeling, West Virginia, Aug 23, 1891. He graduated from 
Wesleyan University, Conn., in 1840, and removed to western Pennsyl- 
vania in 1 8 15 and to Wheeling, West Va., in 1819 with his parents, where 
in 1840-53 he was extensively engaged in the lumber business; during 
185 1-2 he was a member of the Virginia House of Delegates; President 
of the Bank of Wheeling in 1853, a member of the Richmond Con- 
vention in 1 86 1, and voted against secession; also a member of the 
Wheeling Convention which adopted the restored government of West 
Virginia; a member of W. Va. Senate 1S63-4; a member of the National 
Republican Convention at Baltimore in 1864; Republican Congressman 
in the 39th and 40th Congresses; Secretary of the Wheeling Iron and 
Nail Company, President of the Pittsburg, Wheeling and Ky. R. R. Co., 
and also of the German Bank of Wheeling, and a member of the Repub- 
lican National Convention in 1880. 

CHESTER DORMAN HUBBARD was one of the foremost figures 
in his city and State. In business, politics, education, religion and 
society he was an active force to the day of his death, and always for 
good. His tall, spare figure, earnest face and dignified, kindly bearing 
made the physical man noteworthy, and his alert intelligence, liberal 
and thoughtful education, firm and unselfish purpose made him an in- 
tellectual and moral power. His name meant integrity, not merely 
obedience to the civil and moral law, but an affirmative, aggressive 
righteousness. It was well illustrated by his refusal, when a member 
of Congress, to accept the back pay which Congress had voted to its mem- 
bers. The City of Wheeling owes to him the existence of considerable 
manufacturing establishments and an important railway line, and more 
than to any one else the original establishment of its free school system 
and the maintenance of higher schools for both sexes. The Methodist 
Episcopal Church, to which he was attached through life, received his 
best support and service in all branches of its church and Sunday- 
school work, from a seat in its general conference to its humblest 

In politics he was originally a Whig. With all his might he resisted 
secession, voting against it as a member of the Virginia Convention, and 
coming home from Richmond to aid in the civil and military organiza- 
tion of the Union men of the State. He called to order the first Union 
Convention of the State and was a delegate to the succeeding con- 
vention which reorganized the government of Virginia, and paved the 
way for the formation of the State of West Virginia. After the war 


he was a warm adherent of the Republican party. Perhaps the most 
remarkable thing in his long career was his youthfulness. Through 
all struggles and trials this was manifest. Age wrought lines in his 
face, but not in his heart. In all relations of life he drew young people to 
him. And with all his honors and duties and labors he was greatest in 
his humility and charity, and, to those close to him, in his tenderness. 
His life honored the name of Hubbard. 

He married Sep 29, 1842, Sarah Pallister, of Wheeling. Children — 
William Pallister (b Dec 24, 1843, grad. Wesleyan University 
in 1863; lawyer at Wheeling, West Va.; served in West Va. Cav.; Clerk 
of the House of Delegates 1866-70; Secretary Republican State Central 
Committee; Delegate to Rep. National Convention in Cincinnati in 1872;

SAMUEL HUBBARD (descended from William Hubbard of Ips- 
wich, Mass.), son of William and Joanna (Perkins) Hubbard, was born 
in Boston, Mass., June 2, 1785, and died there December 24, 1847, a dis- 
tinguished jurist, scholar and citizen. In 1802 he graduated from Yale 
and commenced the study of law. After his admittance to the bar, he 
commenced practice at Biddeford, Me., taking the law office of Judge 
Mellen in 1806. In 1810 he returned to his native city and was elected 
to the legislature as representative, and afterward for several terms as 
state senator. In 1827 Yale, and in 1842 Harvard University conferred 
upon him the degree of LL.D., and in this latter year he was elected to 
the high office of Judge of the Supreme Court of Massachusetts, which 
honor he held until his death. His ancestry upon both sides has been a 
distinguished one, representing the best element that left England to 
live an untrammelled life of religious liberty in New England, and the 
element that naturally fell heir to the power to govern in a newly- 
formed colony. Gov. John Haynes, Gov. John Leverett, Sir Richard 


Saltonstall and Rev. William Hubbard, the New England Historian, all 
rose up prominently in earl}? - colonial life, and were a few of the num- 
ber of his noted ancestors. Mr. HUBBARD married June 8, 1815, in 
Boston, (1) Mary Anne Greene, b in Demerara, British Guiana, Apl 19,

GARDINER GREENE HUBBARD (descended from William 
Hubbard of Ipswich, Mass.), eldest son of Samuel and Mary Ann 
(Greene) Hubbard, was born Aug 25, 1822, at Sweet Auburn (now Mt. 
Auburn), Cambridge, Mass., where his father was spending the sum- 
mer. He graduated at Dartmouth College in 1841, and received the 
degree of LL. D. from Columbian University, Washington, D. C, in 
1888, and from Dartmouth College, N. H., in 1894. He was also made 
Regent of the Smithsonian Institute in 1894. Choosing the law he 
studied it and practiced the profession in Boston, in December, 1842, as 
partner of Benjamin R. Curtis, subsequently Justice of the Supreme 
Court of the United States, and continued in the profession until 1869. 
He also interested himself in prominent business enterprises; among 
others, the starting of the street railroad from Cambridge to Boston, the 
first road of that kind ever built outside of the city of New York; also 
the Cambridge Water Works and Gas Light Companies. Of these com-

Massachusetts State Board of Education for eight years, in which cause 
he has also been prominent.

That which Mr. HUBBARD regards as the best work of his life is 
the establishment of the first school for the deaf in this country at Chelms- 
ford, Mass., in 1866, where instead of signs the children were taught 
speech and lip reading. This little school was very successful, and after 
repeated appeals to the legislature of Massachusetts (in which he was 
opposed by the teachers of the sign system then in use), a charter was 
obtained by which the Clarke Institution of Northampton, Mass., was 
organized and the little school at Chelmsford transferred to it. Mr. 
HUBBARD has been connected with this school either as president or 
director since its organization. It is now one of the foremost schools in 
the world, and has completely changed the method of instruction of the 
deaf in this country. 

He was commissioner to the Centennial Exposition in 1876, and the 
same year he was appointed by President Grant Chairman of the United 
States Commission to investigate and determine the proper rates to 
be paid by the Post Office Department for the transportation of the 
mail; but his last work has been the bringing to successful culmination, 
through numberless obstacles and public skepticism, the now well 
known Bell Telephone system, invented by his son-in-law, Prof. Alex- 
ander Graham Bell, and brought to successful realization by his capital 
and executive ability. 

Mr. HUBBARD is President of the National Geographic Society, in 
which he takes a lively interest; a trustee of the Columbian University, 
First Vice President of the American Association of Manufacturers and 
Inventors, and President of the Board of Trustees of the Church of the 
Covenant of Washington, D. C, and Director in various Telephone and 
other corporations. Mr. HUBBARD is foremost among Americans in 
advancing the interests of science. His position as President of the 
Geographic Society is his while he chooses to retain it. As the foster 
father of the telephone system his is the praise. The litterateur, and 
all men of cult and enterprise are welcomed at his home. His fine 
library in Washington is always accessible to the worthy student. His 
hospitality is unbounded and equally extended to his friends by 
Mrs. Hubbard, who aids him in many good works and beneficent move- 
ments. His ancestry includes a long list of early colonial representa- 
tives, and being so distinguished in their varied spheres, it has seemed 
fitting to briefly outline these relations. 

Mr. HUBBARD is ninth in descent from William Hubbard of 
Ipswich; eighth in descent from his son, Rev. William Hubbard of 
Ipswich; ninth in descent from Rev. Nathaniel Rogers, Pastor of the 
Congregation at Ipswich 1638-55, whose father, John Rogers, was Pres- 
ident of Harvard College; eighth in descent from Sir John Leverett, 


delegate to the General Court of Massachusetts 1651-53, 1663-64, mem- 
ber of the Governor's Council 1665-71, Major General of Provincial 
Forces 1663-73, Deputy Governor of Massachusetts 1671-73, Governor 
of Massachusetts 1673-76 during Philip's War, and knighted by Charles 
II. for services in that period; ninth in descent from John Haynes, 
third Governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony, first Governor of Con- 
necticut, commissioner of the United Colonies of New England for 
defense against the Indians in 1643, and Colonel of the Connecticut 
forces in the Pequot war of 1636; eighth in descent from Richard Rus- 
sell, member of the General Court of Massachusetts and Speaker 
1658-9, 1654, 1656, 1658, assistant and member of the Governor's Council 
1659-74, and Treasurer of Massachusetts 1644-74; ninth in descent from 
George Wyllys, assistant and member of the Governor's Council of Con- 
necticut 1639-40, Deputy Governor 1641, and Governor in 1642; eighth in 
descent from Samuel Wyllys, assistant and member of the Governor's 
Council of Connecticut 1654-85, and Commissioner to the Congress of 
the United Colonies 1661-62, 64, 67; fifth in descent from Jean Paul 
Mascarene, b. 1684, of a Huguenot family in France, who entered the 
English army as a lieutenant and came with it to Nova Scotia; he was 
a member of the Council in 1720 and associated with the Governors of 
New Hampshire and Massachusetts in negotiating the treaty of 1725 
with the Eastern Indians, Acting Governor of Nova Scotia 1740-9, 
Major General in 1788, and died in Boston in May, 1760. 

As a matter of a little curious interest, herewith is also given his 
descent line through various male and female ancestors from King Ed- 
ward I., eldest son of King Henry III., House of Plantagenet, Eng- 
land, tempo 1272, down to himself, making him of the twenty-third gen-

NEHEMIAH HUBBARD (descended from George Hubbard of 
Middletown, Ct.), third child of the thirteen children of Nehemiah and 
Sarah (Sill) Hubbard, was born April 10, 1752, in Middletown, Ct. He 
married Cornelia Willis in 1777, who died November 28, 1781. He then 
married Lucy Starr February 12, 1785, and at her death married April 
22, 1823, widow Hannah (Burnham) Latimer. At fourteen he entered 
the store of Matthew Talcott and continued there until twenty-one, 
when he embarked for the West Indies, first as supercargo and then as 
captain and merchant. In 1776 Governor Trumbull appointed him pay- 
master of Colonel Burrill's (Connecticut) regiment. In May, 1777, 
General Greene appointed him Deputy Quartermaster-General for 
Connecticut. He was present at the siege of Yorktown at the surrender 
of Cornwallis. As a provider of army supplies none ever excelled him 
in fertile resources, promptness, decision and executive ability. At 
many a critical juncture the supplies from Connecticut came to hand 
most opportunely through his masterly energy and relieved the starved 
fighting patriots. He possessed the warm confidence of Generals 
Washington and Greene, Governor Jonathan Trumbull, and Alexander 
Hamilton. (See portrait under Revolutionary War Hubbards.) 



The subjoined original letters* addressed to him have recently come 
to light and are introduced here as subjects of interest, bearing as they 
do some of the famous signatures of foremost Americans. His own 
handwriting is of considerable historic value. They are literal trans- 

Head Quarters, 15th October, 1778. 
Sir: You are immediately on receipt of this, to use every exertion in your power to furnish Mr. 
(?Meason) the Clothier with an ample supply of teams and carriages for bringing on the new clothing 
to camp with the utmost dispatch. 

I am, Sir, Your most obed. servt.

Morristown, [N. J.] Decern. 16th, [17] 79. 
Sir: Mr. Olney wrote you a day or two since to send for the use of my family, if to he purchased 
some Sugar and other Articles. If you can send me a quarter cask of wine, either of Port or Madei ia 
it will oblige me, as Mrs. Greene has none to drink, and expects to be sick in a short time. I have 
only time to add that I am, with esteem, 

Your friend, 

Mr. Hubbard.

Lebanon, 12th Jany, 1779. 
Sir: Be so good as to inform me if you can furnish me a Horse from the Public Stables for Car- 
riage of my baggage to Philadelphia. He must be a stout, strong, well-fleshed fellow. 

I am not certain how soon I shall need him. Suppose my Receipt to deliver him to the Public in 
Phila will be sufficient. 

Please send me word by my Brother what I may depend on. 
I am, sir, Your most humble servt, 

Nehemiah Hubbard, Hartford. 


Philadelphia, May 3, 1792. 
Sir: I beared with much regret, though under the appearances which must have struck you, not 
with much surprise, of your determination to decline the appointment of Superintendent of the 
Manufacturing Society. This institution has presented itself to my mind as of such real public import- 
ance, that I feel myself much interested in its success; and I acknowledge that I continue to enter- 
tain a conviction of the practicabilty of ensuring that success by judicious management. To this end 
a fit person as Superintendent is undoubtedly an essential mean. And my repeated reflections have 
proved to me that it is far from easy to find a choice of proper characters. Hence I feel a peculiar 
anxiety that you should reconsider your resolution and still consent to undertake the business.

Those characters in the Direction, who were too much invelopped in Speculation to pay proper 
attention to the truth, will henceforth be out of the question, and I entertain no doubt that the next 
Election will supply their places in a manner which will inspire confidence. I am allso persuaded 
that the Superintendent, if a competent and trust worthy person, will be cloathed with such a portion 
of discretionary authority as will enable him to fulfill the objects of the Society. To this I may add 
that subordinate characters to be placed at the head of the several branches (I mean of the Cotton 
Manufactory) of whose competency there is satisfactory evidence, are actually engaged, and that a 
considerable progress has been made in preparation. 

The Society meet on the 15th instant. It is my intention to meet them, and I feel a confidence 
that I shall be able to give just [?such] a direction to their measures as will recover the ground that 
has been lost by delay and indecision. If I can by that time announce that you are willing to join the 
Company, it will give me particular satisfaction. 

I will however observe that in such case it is of moment you should be able to enter promptly on 
the business. The spot must be fixed upon and the buildings commenced. Let me, I pray you, pre- 
vious to that time hear from you on the subject. 

I am aware that the step proposed to you is of consequence. I will only add that if the event 
shall not answer expectation, I should feel myself bound to endeavor to render it not injurious to you 
by any source which might be in my power. 

I am, with assurances, Your Obed Servant, 


" The following is a Narration embodying the Services of Nehem. Hubbard of Middletown, County 
of Middlesex, State of Conn., in the service of the United States, which are as follows, viz.: That in 
May, 1776. he was appointed by Governor Trumbull a paymaster to a Regiment of Connecticut Troops 
Commanded by Colo. Burrell, Lieut. Colo Buell, and Major Sedgwick, as field officer, & was ordered 
to Ticonderoga: That on my arrival at Albany (I had an order from Genl. Schuyler) I was employed 
by Jona. Trumbull, Esq., Paymaster of the Northern Department. 

" By order of Genl. Schuyler, then at Albany, I was ordered to take a sum of money and proceed 
to the westward for the payment of the Troops stationed at various Posts on the Mohawk Kiver, Colo. 
Dayton's Regiment being at Fort Stanwix. Having compleated that Service, I returned to Albany, & 
from thence Proceeded to Ticonderoga and joined the regiment of Colo. Burrell on Mount Independ- 
ence, where I remained till some time in Jany, when I returned to Hartford and for some time served 
under Jeremh. Wadsworth, Esq., Commd. Genl; that in May, 1777, I was appointed by Major Genl 
Green, the Quarter Mr. Genl of the Army of the United States, his Deputy for the State of Connec- 
ticut; that I served in that capacity untill the resignation of Genl Green; after which I was again 
appointed by Colo. Pickering, then acting as Quarter Master Genl. I declined to accept of the ap- 
pointment by Colo. Pickering, having it in my Power to do much better for myself in other business. 
I nevertheless continued in the business untill I was relieved by the appointment of a person to take 
my Place, when I quit the service of the United States. My Accounts at the Treasury department, 
together with the letters herewith annexed, will be sufficient to substantiate the foregoing state- 
ments. For which services I have a just claim on the United States for compensation; and my ac- 
counts will prove that my services were more than some others of the Deputies of other States; and 
as I am nearly eighty years of age, a compensation for part services will be accepted." 



After the war he resumed the occupation of merchant, and from 1808 
until 1822 was President of the Middletown Savings Bank, also a justice 
of the peace and city treasurer of Middletown. The land upon which 
now stand the Wesleyan College Buildings was freely donated by him 


as an evidence of his public spirit. In Trumbull County, Ohio, he 
owned vast tracts of land, and Hubbard, Ohio, was named after him. 
He was of fine stature, erect, of frank deportment, accurate judgment, 
and keen discrimination. He was very liberal, and the tried and true 
friend of the struggling young man striving for a competency through 
rectitude of conduct His church work was earnest and of inspiring 
influence. He died Feb 6, 1837, one of Middletown's most exemplary 
citizens, and is now enjoying the fruits that a well spent earthly life 
entitles one to in the upper world. The inventory of his estate 
amounted to $79,374.34, a large fortune in those days. Children (by

otherwise famous. Romeo lives in New Jersey, while Juliet sojourns

Land of my Sires ! What mortal hand 

Can e'er untie the filial ba«d 

That knits me to thy rugged strand — Sir Walter Scott. 

ADLEY HUBBARD, like all of the name who came to America, 
was an Englishman. His ancestry in England has never been 
traced. When he arrived, which was in 1660, he settled in Maryland. It 
is recorded that after 18 years his sister " Bridget " joined him in 
America. He was a Quaker, as were his descendants. A large pro- 
portion of Hubbards through the States of Maryland, Virginia and 
North Carolina were Quakers about this period and later. It is yet 
undiscovered who his wife was and how many children they had. One 
son, however, was named — 

RICHARD HUBBARD, who was called " Captain." He bought 
land of one John Ward. The deed of conveyance was made out at Sas- 
safras River, Cecil County, Maryland, and bears date of April 7, 1705. 
Among his children was a son named — 

CHARLES HUBBARD, who removed to Dorchester County, Mary- 
land, and took out a patent for a tract of land in 1724. This was known 
as " Hubbard's Addition." He had a son named— 

SOLOMON HUBBARD, who was born in Dorchester County, and 
who, in the year 1765, secured a patent for a tract of land in this county, 
which was called "Hubbard's Desire." SOLOMON had a son named— 

JESSE HUBBARD, who was born in 1742 and died in 1815. He 
was a planter and lived in Caroline County, Maryland. (There was a 
Jesse Hubbard in the "State Navy" of Virginia during the war of the 
Revolution and he may have been the person mentioned.) He left six 
children— Peter, J 1 Edward (see following), Jesse, Rebecca, John and 




p EDWARD HUBBARD was born in 1765 and died in 1832. He 
was a planter and inherited his father's plantation, which was situated 
near Denton, Caroline County, where he lived until his death. Until 
this period EDWARD and his ancestors were all Quakers. He left 
eight children — Newton, Celia, "p Lemuel, Sarah, Eliza, Mary, 
Wright, and Jesse who had a son Alva. 

J 2 LEMUEL HUBBARD, third child of Edward Hubbard, was 
born June 2, 1799. His occupation was that of a planter. He resided 
near Preston, Caroline County, Md. In the year 1823 he married Mary 
Rumbold, daughter of Judge John Rurabold of the same County and 
State. They lived to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their wedding 
he dying eight years later, on August 23d, 1881. 

LEMUEL HUBBARD was a consistent member of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church for upwards of fifty years. His widow, at this 
writing, is still living, having attained the advanced age of 88 years. 
She is a most remarkable and most estimable old lady, whose compan- 
ionship is sought by old and young. Her health is excellent and she 
is in full possession of all her faculties. She reads and writes without 
the aid of spectacles. Children — Eliza Jane (b Jan 17, 1827, m Jan 31, 
1844, William Pritchett, who d in 187 1), John Edward (b Mch 16, 1829, 
m Jan 5, 1868, Emma Wainwright), "f 3 Thomas Rumbold (see follow- 
ing), Elizabeth Anne (b Oct 3, 1833, m Jan 13, 1857, Capt. Peter N. 
Collins), Mary Lucinda, (b June 8, 1836, m Feb 23, 1854, William E. 
Todd), James Henry (b Jan 13, 1838, m Dec 23, 1862, Kate Turner, d 
Nov 27, 1865), U 1 William Lemuel (see elsewhere), Sarah Elmer (b 
Oct 17, 1843, m Feb 9, 1864, Frank A. Willis), Zebdial Potter (b June 
2, 1847, m Jan 9, 1878, Nettie Parks) and Matthew Patton (b May 23, 
1849, m 1879, Mollie Parks). 

T 3 THOMAS RUMBOLD HUBBARD, third child of Lemuel and 
Mary (Rumbold) Hubbard, was born in Caroline County, Maryland, 
June 28, 1851. He lived at the parental homestead until his 21st year, 
when he entered into the mercantile business, which he pursued until 
1875. He then with his brothers, John Edward and William Lemuel, 
commenced the manufacture of super-phosphates at Chestertown, Md., 
under the firm name of Hubbard Brothers, being the pioneer manu- 
facturers of fertilizers on the Eastern shore of Maryland. In 1878, the 
firm being dissolved by mutual consent, he associated his son, Wilbur 
Watson Hubbard, with him in the business, which to the present time 
has been conducted under the firm name of T. R. Hubbard & Son. He 
married, Nov 29, 1859, Josephine Mason Watson, daughter of George W. 
and Mary Watson of Milford, Del. Children — J 4 Wilbur Watson (see 
following), and Anna (b Apl 22, 1862, m Sep 20, 1892, Rowland Watts, 


A. M., Professor of Mathematics in Western Maryland College, West- 
minster, Md.). 

T 4 WILBUR WATSON HUBBARD, only son of Thomas Rumbold 
and Josephine Mason (Watson) Hubbard, was born Sep 19, i860, at 
Greensborough, Caroline County, Md., and was educated at private 
schools, and completed his education at Washington College, Chester- 
town, Md. At the age of 18 years he entered into business with his 
father in the manufacture of fertilizers. His keen business push has 
contributed largely to building up an extensive trade in Maryland and 
adjoining States. In 1890 he was largely instrumental in organizing 
the Second National Bank of Chestertown, Md., and of which institution 
he has been one of the most active directors since its foundation. He 
married November 20, 1890, Etta Belle Ross, daughter of Judge James 
E. and Miriam (Warren) Ross of Mexico, Mo. Children — Miriam 
Warren (b Sep 20, 1891), and Thomas Ross (b Dec 30, 1894). 

U 1 WILLIAM LEMUEL HUBBARD, seventh child of Lemuel and 
Mary (Rumbold) Hubbard, was born Apl 18, 1841, on the plantation of 
his father, near Preston, Caroline County, Md., where he remained until 
he attained his majority, during which time he attended one of the 
public schools of the county. He went East at the age of 21, making 
his home in Portland, Maine, where he remained until the close of the 
Civil War in 1865, when he returned to Maryland. He was then mar- 
ried at the age of 24 to Sarah Lavenia Wiley, daughter of Levin Wiley, 
Esq., of Federalsburg, Caroline County, Md. At this age he entered 
the mercantile business in the State of Delaware, which was continued 
six years. In the year 1872 he formulated plans to engage in the man- 
ufacture of fertilizers, which was commenced on a small scale, associating 
his brother, John Edward, with him as a partner, and trading under the 
firm name of Hubbard & Brother, at Easton, Md. In the year 1886 his 
brother retired. He then established his business in Baltimore City at 
No. 10 Light Street, under the firm name of Hubbard & Company. 

This firm's business has assumed large proportions, and is now 
regarded as one of the staunchest enterprises in Baltimore City. Mr. 
HUBBARD is the senior member of this firm and one of the pioneers 
of the fertilizer business in this country. He is regarded as valuable 
authority upon the subject of chemical manures. He makes his home in 
Easton, Talbot County, Md., where he has other large business interests. 
Mr. Hubbard has followed in the footsteps of his father in his 
Church views, and his entire household are strict adherents to the Doc- 
trines of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Children— Julia A. (b 
August 2, 1866, d Nov 22, 1869), J. Harry (b Oct 11, 1868, d Apl 6, 
1890), T. May (b Oct 20, 1870, m June 6, 1894, Dr. Joseph Shermer Gar- 



rison), [J 2 Howard (see following), Grace W. (b Sep 28, 1884), and 
William Lemuel (b Feb 15, 1888). 

U 2 HOWARD HUBBARD, fourth child of William Lemuel and 
Sarah Lavenia (Wiley) Hubbard, was born January 22, 1874, at Wyo- 
ming, Del. He received his primary education at the schools of 
Easton, Md., and graduated at Baltimore City College and Bryant and 
Stratton's Business College. In the year 1893 he accepted a position 
with Hubbard & Company of Baltimore City, of which firm his father 
is the senior member. 

Mr. HUBBARD, though young, has exhibited marked business 
ability for one of his years. His attention to duty was rewarded by an 
admittance as a partner in the above firm, January 1, 1895. He mar- 
ried Feb 6, 1895, F. Louise Broumel, daughter of James Broumel, Esq., 
deceased, late of Baltimore City. 

T 4 Mr. WILBUR WATSON HUBBARD was one of the delegates 
at the " World's Congress of Bankers and Financiers " which convened 
at the Art Palace, Chicago, June 19th, 1893. 


When I was a baby, of course, like all other babies I was helpless, but 
I was (I am told) lusty, fat and made my existence known by the 
usual method ! " Such a baby !" my parents evidently thought, for I 
was eight months old before I was named. The gamut of names was 
run over and over again, but without agreement or decision. Finally 
the Rev. E. D. Chapman, pastor of Baptist Church in Deep River, Ct, 
calling, was appealed to as a sort of referee. He coolly took a memoir 
of Harlan Page, the celebrated divine, from his overcoat pocket, and 
calling for pen and ink, wrote what has ever since been my name. This 
memoir was published in 1835 by the American Tract Society, in the 
building directly opposite my present office window! 

It was an odd name, in the nomenclature of the Hubbard tribes, and 
I was surprised some ten years since to find another of the same " front " 
name living in Bradford, Pa., and now within a few months of publica- 
tion, his son, with same name, pops up, living in Chicago. What line 
they belong to, or where to locate them, I have been unable to learn.

and Henry Hamilton Sylvester, was born April 17, 1831, in Charles- 
town, N. H., and attended Phillips Exeter Academy for four years 
and Yale University (Class of 51) for one year. He then studied 
law with Edmund L. Cushing (afterward Chief Justice of New Hamp- 
shire) and was admitted to the bar at Ann Arbor, Mich. His literary 
taste was for the stirring class, however, and so prosaic law books were 
closed and shelved and live journalism embraced instead. He removed 
to Iowa City, Iowa, and found ample opportunities there for his graceful 
and forcible pen by editing the State's leading paper, then known as 
the Iozva Capital Reporter. With the exception of about five years in 
business at Memphis, Tenn., shortly after the war, he has ever since 
been connected with the press in St. Louis, and Washington, D. C. Since 
1889 " Dick " Sylvester has been the associate editor of the Washington 
Post, the Capital City's leading journal, and is widely known by all 
his fellow-scribes in Washington and elsewhere. His review of the 


political and public career of vSamuel J. Kirkwood, the famous war gov- 
ernor of Iowa, in the Washington Post, was the finest effort of its kind 
the compiler ever read. The mother of Mr. SYLVESTER, Elizabeth 
Hubbard (b 1792, d 183 1) was the sister of the late Gov Henry Hubbard 
of New Hampshire. She married Henry Hamilton Sylvester (b in 
Leicester, Mass., 1792, d 1871 at Hartland, Vt.), Feb 25, 1816, in Charles- 
town, X. H., and had four children, of whom RICHARD HENRY was 
the youngest, and the only one now living. Mr. SYLVESTER married 
Martha Woods, daughter of Rev. W. W. Woods, of the Presbyterian 
ministry. Children — Richard Henry, Jr. (b Aug 14, 1857, m Laura 
McFall of vSt. Louis, Mo, and had Laura, John and Hubbard), Eliza- 
beth (b May 7, i860), Willie (b Dec 27, 1S63), and Ruth (b Feb 7, 1874).

some attention to genealogical research), daughter of De Wyllys Wood- 
ruff, of Meriden, Ct., and in the Fall of 1854 removed to Urbana, Cham- 
paign County, 111., where, with two other gentlemen, he established the 
first banking institution in the county. He also became cashier of the 
Grand Prairie Bank (opened in the following Spring), a bank of issue, 
with a $100,000 circulation, secured by Missouri State Bonds.. This 
bank had a branch institution at Champaign. Since 1861 he has en- 
gaged extensively in the hardware trade, and was the Treasurer during 
its existence of the Urbana and Champaign Railroad Co. He was ap- 
pointed also in 1861 "Fiscal Agent" for the sale of Swamp Lands in 
Champaign County, in which position of trust no bonds were required 
from him, so strong was the confidence in his probity. Mr. HUBBARD 
has been an alderman in the City Council, is Republican in his politics, 
and has been the ruling elder in the Presbyterian Church there since 
its organization in 1857. Children — Wvli vs Woodruff (b Mch 8, 1S52,

County Grammar School. In 1 866 he engaged in business in Boston, Mass., 
for three years, and in 1875 went abroad and traveled for a year in for- 
eign countries. Returning to his native town Mr. HUBBARD devoted 
himself to the management of the extensive business interests which 
his father was compelled to abandon on account of his failing eyesight. 
One enterprise of his was the development of an extensive system for 
supplying Montpelier with " pure spring water." In 1S94 he undertook 
the construction of a handsome building to be known as the Kellogg- 
Hubbard Public Library, which, when completed, will be donated to 
the town. Mr. HUBBARD has extensive real estate interests there, 
which have become valuable through the capable management of his 
father and himself. He is a member of the " Sons of the American 
Revolution," and has never married* His father was— 

ERASTUS HUBBARD, eldest child of Roger and Fanny (Burbank) 
Hubbard, who was born in Montpelier Sep 8, 1S11, and died there Oct

Vt., Nov 26, 1 81 5, now living— 1894), dan Amplias Blake (b in Keene, 
N. H., Nov 27, 1778, son of Nathan, Nathan, Robert, and John of Wrent- 
ham, Mass.— 1636) and Mary (Paine) Blake, and gr dau Seth and Lydia 
(Lester) Paine. ERASTUS HUBBARD attended the town schools 
and Washington County Grammar School and then entered mercantile 
life, which he pursued from 1832 to 1855. In 1848 an explosion in his 
store caused his almost entire blindness later in life. He was one of 
Montpelier's substantial citizens, and in 1857 signed a $100,000 bond to 
secure the rebuilding of the State House at Montpelier which was de- 
• stroyed by fire that year. He never desired official preferment, but 
. contented himself with doing unostentatious good and enjoying the re- 
spect and good-will of his fellow-townsmen. His large real estate in- 
terests passed into the hands of his only son at his death. His only 
daughter Lucy (b in Montpelier May 6, 1838) married in Jan, 1865, 
Hon. Benjamin Franklin Fifield (son of Col. Orange Fifield of Orange, 
Vt.) of Montpelier, Vt., a prominent railroad and corporation lawyer of 
that State, and has three daughters.

HARLAN PAGE HUBBARD (publisher of this book), eldest son of 
Colman Smith and Mary Platts (Read) Hubbard, was born in Deep 
River, Ct, December 29, 1845. His life work has been in the main con- 
nected with newspaper and publishing business, having passed through 
all grades from carrier boy to editorial and business management. He 
also took a course in Yale Law School, '75. For many years (com- 
mencing 1874) he conducted a newspaper advertising agency at New 
Haven, Ct, paying out to the press of this country and others millions 
of dollars for the advertising of his customers, many of whom were and 
still are noted successes. An interesting article on a famous book which 
he published a dozen years ago will be found under Miscellaneous. 

At the World's Columbian Exposition at Chicago, Mr. Hubbard made 
an exhibit of the titles and heads of over ten thousand newspapers from 
all countries. It was located in the Editorial Reception Rooms in the 
Administration Building, and attracted a great deal of attention. A 
medal and diploma were awarded. 

Mr. Hubbard is now in special newspaper work in New York City, 
successfully conducting several journals of large circulation. He mar- 
ried July 7, 1867, Adelia Anna Crocker, of Boston, Mass., daughter of

CHARLES HUBBARD, only son of William Henry and Ellen (Cook) 
Hubbard, was born in Tinton Falls, Shrewsbury township, Monmouth 
County, N. J., July 7, 1839. He attended Holmdel Academy and Wil- 
liam W. Woodhull's Select School for Boys at Freehold, N. J., and then 
prepared himself for the mastery of dental science by a four years' 


course of instruction from 1858, principally under the tutorship of Dr. 
J. B. Brown of Brooklyn, N. Y. Upon passing a successful examination 
as dental surgeon he settled in Red Bank, N. J., became a member of 
the New Jersey Dental Society, and established very quickly his repu- 
tation as a master in the profession. He contributed able papers to the 
society, and in a most successful diagnosis of a very puzzling and re- 
sponsible case at a clinic he was conceded to be most skilful in his art. 
In 1SS0 he removed to Brooklyn, N. Y. Besides his love for his profes- 
sion the doctor cultivates his passionate desire for antiquarian relics, 
and while being possessed of an Old Hubbard Bible (see elsewhere) he 
owns also other choice volumes and two very ancient old-fashioned 
clocks, one of which once belonged to the Barkeloo family of New 
Jersey and the other, made by Henry Wallis of London, has been from 
time immemorial in the Hubbard family of his branch. The Doctor is 
a member of the Carleton, Montauk, and Logan Clubs of Brooklyn, be- 
sides being a Knight Templar and member of various dental societies 
in New York, New Jersey and upon Long Island, and has been quite 
active, as was his father, in pursuing genealogical studies. Oct 
20, 1869, he married Leonora Turner, daii of Thomas and Rebecca 
(Garland) Turner of Newcastle, Del. Children — Laura Garland (b 
Sep 21, 1872, in Red Bank, N. J.), and Henry Randolph (b June 29, 
1874, in Red Bank, N. J.). His father— 

WILLIAM HENRY HUBBARD, son of Elias and Eleanor (Hen- 
drickson) Hubbard, was born in Monmouth County, N. J., Sep 29, 181 2, 
and received an academic course at Baptisttown Academy. At the age 
of 17 he began the study of medicine at Tinton Falls, N. J., with his 
uncle, Dr. Jacobus Hubbard, Jr., a most successful practitioner. He 
also studied with Dr. C. C. Blauvelt of Holmdel, N. J., and graduated in 
1834 from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, taking 
his uncle's office and practice when he retired from the profession. In 
1856, during a yellow fever epidemic, he removed to Gravesend, L. I., 
the home of his first American ancestor and there remained until 1862, 
when he returned to New Jersey and made his home at Red Bank. His 
practice covered a large area, which he faithfully attended to for over 
fifty-three years. He was a prominent member of the Monmouth 
County Medical Society, being its President in 1856, and of the Odd 
Fellow and Masonic fraternities, and died in Red Bank, N. J., Jan 28, 
1887. October 10, 1836, he married Ellen Cook, dau of John and Mary 
(Morris) Cook of Tinton Falls, N. J. Children — Charles (see foregoing) 
Mary Ellen (b in Tinton Falls, Mch 31, 1838, m June 6, 1861, Stephen 
Stryker Williamson and lives at Gravesend) and Eliza (b in Tinton 
Falls June 29, 1847, d unm May 14, 1S82).

WILLIAM HENRY HUBBARD, eldest son of Isaac Watts and 
Sarah Ann (Townsend) Hubbard, was born at Windsor, Vt, Feb 26, 
1834. He graduated at Norwich University, Vt., in 1852, and for a time 
was employed as civil engineer upon a railroad in Ohio. In 1885 he 
went to Iowa, and was engaged in banking and insurance (mainly at 
Iowa City) for twenty-six years. Since 1881 he has lived in St. Paul, 
Minn., and Chicago, 111., removing to Duluth, his present home, in 1890. 
He is Vice-President of the Schiller-Hubbard Company, a concern well 
known locally as manufacturers and jobbers of cigars and tobacco. Mr. 
HUBBARD, although a busy man, finds time to indulge his taste for 
genealogical research, and is deeply interested in bringing to light and 


preserving all data concerning the good old Hubbard Family. Feb i, 
1859, he married Mary Williams vStone (b Nov 5, 1835), daughter of Cal- 
vin Reed and Susan (Fitch) Stone, of Worcester, Mass. Children —

Vt., May 16, 187 1. He came with his father's family from Connecticut 
to Vermont about 1800. At an early age he entered the store of Allan 
Haves, and a few years later saw him bookkeeper, and at 21 a partner 
in what was for those times a flourishing business. "WATTS HUB- 
BARD," as he was familiarly called, was a busy man, giving his time 
and ability not only to his own affairs, but to whatever tended to build 
up and improve his town. He was everybody's friend — genial and 
cheery to the last degree. His memory will long be kept green in his 
old home, while his witty sayings have become a part of Windsor's local 
traditions. He married Jan 7, 1829, Sarah Ann Townsend (b in Boston 
in 1S05) of Windsor, who at this writing (1894) is enjoying life at the 
age of 89. Three children survive — Mary J. (b Nov 3, 1829), widow of

WILLIAM MATTHEW STRADER, fourth child of the seven 
children of Peter Wilson and Cornelia Frances (Hubbard) Strader, was 
born Feb 9, 1851, in Cincinnati, Ohio, and there attended school, also at 
Racine, Wis. He went to Minnesota in 1872 for a change of climate 
but returned to Cincinnati in 1875. From there he removed to Ash- 
tabula and engaged in business. Mr. STRADER also spent two years 
in Spokane, Wash., but is now living in Ashtabula with his mother. 
He retired in 1S80 from the hardware firm of George C. Hubbard & Co. 
So far he has successfully resisted all temptations to become a Benedict. 
His mother — 

CORNELIA FRANCES HUBBARD was born in Ashtabula Aug 
1, 181S, and in journeying to Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, in the Spring of 1842, 
with her parents and sisters, met aboard the boat running from Cincin- 
nati to Burlington, Iowa, an enterprising young steamboat man, Peter 


Wilson Strader, to whom she was married Jan 2, 1843, at Mt. Pleasant. 
The same day her sister Catherine married Captain Linus Logan, master 
of the boat they were passengers upon. Peter Wilson Strader, the 
husband of CORNELIA FRANCES HUBBARD, was born in Warren 
County, N. J., Nov 6, 1818, and removed with his parents to Lebanon, 
Ohio. He served an apprenticeship in a printing office there and then 
engaged in steamboating upon the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers until he 
was thirty, amassing during this period a snug property. In 1S48 he 
began to operate in railroading, banking and insurance, and in 1868 
enjoyed the distinction of being the first Democrat elected to Congress 
from the first District of Ohio, owing to his personal popularity. He 
served his constituents ably and faithfully, but declined a renomination. 
His arduous life labors greatly impaired his health. His death occurred 
in Ashtabula Feb 25, 1881, though he was buried in Cincinnati. Chil-

THOMAS SWAN HUBBARD, youngest child of Samuel and Eliza- 
beth (Swan) Hubbard, was born in Franklin, Vt, Dec 20, 1811, and 
graduated from Middlebury College in 1834 and from Andover Theo- 
logical Seminary in 1838. He was pastor of Congregational churches 
at Stockbridge and Chelsea, Vt., about eight years each, and later of 
churches at Dunton, 111., and Gaysville and Rochester, Vt., and has held 
also various civil positions in life, being Superintendent of Schools of 
Windsor County, and a member for many years of both branches of the 
Vermont Legislature. He displayed great activity and earnestness in 
the debates concerning his State's welfare, especially at the convention 


called to amend the State's Constitution. To him was largely due the 
change from annual to biennial sessions. He was also an earnest 
Unionist during the Rebellion, and has practiced faithfully the precepts 
he has taught from the pulpit, living and enjoying always to the fullest 
extent the blessings of his faith. At all times was he the ready foeman 
of intemperance and tobacco. During his ministerial career he accom- 
plished much in advancing the science of agriculture, and witnessed 
good results from his efforts. Though over 80, his mind is still clear 
and active, and, though now retired from the ministry, he is always 
ready to step into a vacant pulpit and deliver a forcible discourse. He 
is the sole survivor of ten children, and was a cousin to the late Henry 
Hubbard, Governor of New Hampshire. He married at Stockbridge, 
Vt., Sep 24, 1839, Mary Fay. Children— Timothy Fay (b Aug 5, 1841,

ANNIS MELINDA HUBBARD, fifth child of Roswell and Sophia 
(Wilson) Hubbard, was born in Charlestown, N. H., Aug 9, 1819, and 

now resides in Enfield. When her 
father died her mother kept the fam- 
ily together until she was three years 
of age. Then placing the boys with 
uncles and friends the widow and 
young child went to live with Samuel 
Wilson, her brother, of Vergennes, 
Vt., where the mother taught school, 
which ANNIS attended, and also the 
Chester Seminary. Then all removed 
to N. Y. City, where in 1835 she wit- 
nessed some 500 business houses burn 
down. Miss ANNIS then returned 
(about 1836) to New England, and 
since Dec 26, 1837, has lived in Enfield, 
where among a community of 100 
Shakers she lives as near as she can 
the life of Jesus Christ. (Her mother 
in the mean time had married John 
White of Panton, Yt.) The Shakers 
never marry; their lives are devoted 
to doing noble deeds, particularly in 
caring for homeless children and bringing them to worth}' manhood 
and womanhood. Like the Quakers, the members are at liberty to speak 
at will in their meetings. Miss ANNIS writes: " We live as brothers 
and sisters in one family, seeking each others good in this home rela- 
tion. We are gathered at various places, and it is a daily study to bring 
our dispositions to each others', so there need be no friction." Of her 
brothers —

age of 16 years. Then he took a course at Tilton, N. H., in the New 
Hampshire Conference Seminary, besides receiving from private tutors, 
until 21 years of age, lessons in Chemistry and Materia Medica, for 
which he evinced a great taste from his earliest years. He then went 
to Boston, Mass., and studied and practiced Mechanical Engineering 
until 1867, retaining in the meantime and developing his fondness for 
Chemistry and Materia Medica. A two years' course at European insti- 
tutions then ensued and equipped him with abundant scientific and 
medical knowledge which in past has enabled him to invent a valuable 
compound known as " Dr. Hubbard's Vegetable Germicide." This he 
has manufactured since 1S85, and it has acquired a world-renowned

pacity of book-keeper, 
resigning his position in 
December, 1884, to take

with his brother, John 
Frank Hubbard, Loan 
Agent at Atlantic, Iowa. 
At this place in 1S85 he 
established a system of 
daily " County Reports " 
for the use of bankers 
and business men, which 
has since been gener- 
ally adopted throughout 
the western states. In 
May, 1887, he opened a farm loan agency at Broken Bow, Neb., in which 
he is still interested. Always an ardent sportsman, the year 1891 was 
passed in the training and study of hunting dogs (setters and pointers), 
and articles from his pen under the nom de plume of " Hub " appeared 



m many of the leading sportsmen's journals. As Kennel Editor of 
Sports Afield of Denver in 1892-3 the results of his previous careful 
study of canine nature were given to the public. The severe drouth in 
the West of 1890 and 1893 set the irrigation movement afoot and in 
March, 1894, he was offered the management of the Culbertson Irrigat- 
ing and Water Power Co., with which corporation he has since been 
actively identified. His father —

ROBERT HUBBARD was born in Middletown April 19, 1831, and 
in 1852 went to California, where he resided for four years and then 
returned to his home in Middletown. At President Lincoln's call for 
600 000 men in 1862 he felt that the country was upon the eve of a civil 
conflict of great magnitude, and that it was his duty to enroll as one of 
the 600 000. He immediately enlisted in the 14th Conn. Infty and wrote 
to his brother Josiah, then in Kansas, telling of his act, and entreating 
him to come home and care for their aged parents. Josiah, m the mean- 
time had mailed a letter to him of like import, and the two communi- 
cations passed each other in transitu. ROBERT HUBBARD was 
killed at the battle of Antietam Sep 17, 1S62.

1832. In 1856 he went to Kansas with the Beecher Rifle Company, and

pelled by the same sense of duty his elder brother was, and enlisted in 
the nth Kansas Cavalry, serving until the close of the war, when he 
returned to Middletown and settled upon his father's farm, who, in the 
meantime, had died. He is in touch with those who believe in pro- 
gressive farming, being a member of the Board of Agriculture and a 
trustee of the Storrs Agricultural School. He has represented Middle- 
town in the State Legislature. In July, 1S63, he married Harriet Fair- 
child, and had Robert (b Nov 16, 1867). Nov 26, 1894, Mr. HUBBARD

MARTHA LOUISE HUBBARD was born in Middletown October 
1, 1840, and has never married. She resides at the family homestead 
situated at Johnson's Lane, about three miles south of Middletown, and 
is the owner of a mountain, from the top of which can be seen so pic- 
turesque and enchanting a view that it has been enumerated along with 
the famous views of Europe and the world. 

LUCY LYMAN HUBBARD was born in Middletown Jan 15, 1845. 
Feb 27, 1866, she married Nathaniel Newell Hubbard of Greensburg,

then she returned to Middletown. Dec 23, 1889, she married Joseph 
Warren Hubbard of Kenilworth, Ohio, and makes that place her resi- 
dence. Mrs. HUBBARD, though residing in the West, can not be 
weaned from her attachment for New England, whose fair name she is 
always proud and anxious to defend. She is a Daughter of the Ameri- 
can Revolution of the Ohio Chapter, a real Yankee, and a fervent hater 
of the Democratic party. One son was born to Mr. and Mrs. HUB- 
BARD Jan 29, 1893, who died Feb 1, 1893.

FDWARD WARREN DAY, son of Edward Parsons and Harriet 
(Hubbard) Day, was born in Brooklyn, N. Y, May 2, 1857, and was 
educated in the Brooklyn schools and, later, graduated in 1875 at Leroy 
Academy Leroy, Genesee County, N. Y, where he lived his childhood 
years with his grandparents, Lewis and Evaline (Adams) Hubbard. 
Afterward he went to Rockford, 111, and lived with his aunt's husband, 
Judge Charles Works, learning there the printing and newspaper busi- 
ness & and eventually becoming a traveling correspondent, visiting nearly 
every lar-e city in the United States. With the exception of four years 
spent traveling in the West, he has lived since 1880 in Washington, 
D C being employed for ten years in the government service upon 
the Staff of the Congressional Record, the United States Biennial Reg- 
ister and in the compilation of the Rebellion Records. In 1887, he 
superintended the compilation of the names of 140,000 government em- 
ployes with incidental data, which embraced two volumes. These vol- 
umes 'are called the Biennial Register or " Blue Book." He resigned 
from the Interior Department April 22, 1889, to accept a civil service 
appointment in the War Department, from which bureau of the govern- 
ment he was retired June 30, 1894, with hundreds of others, by an 
economical Democratic Administration, He then returned to New 
York City and gave his sole attention to the interests of this publication. 
While living in Washington he became a Knight Templar, a Member 
of the National Geographic Society (Hon. Gardiner Greene Hubbard 
President) and a member of the Sons of the American Revolution and 
of various rowing, athletic, and bicycle clubs. He has devoted several 
years to disentangling Hubbard genealogical threads that have been 
sent to him from every quarter to be straightened out. He has never 
married. His mother— 

HARRIET HUBBARD, eldest of the six children (three of whom 
died young, leaving Harriet, Alfred Joel and Ellen) of Lewis .and 
Evaline (Adams) Hubbard, was born March 2, 1832, in Sandisfield, 
Berkshire County, Mass., and removed « West " in 1834 with her parents. 
The family journeyed in primitive pioneer style (there being no rail- 
roads) riding behind oxen and leading their horses until they reached 
Avon Springs, N. Y. Her father did not become suited with the fer- 
tility of the soil there and removed shortly to Pavilion, about three 

3 82 


miles south of Leroy and there built himself a substantial log house. 
In this they lived several years or until a large frame one, with a huge 
fire-place, could be constructed. HARRIET HUBBARD attended 
the district school and finally graduated from the Lima Female College. 
She married Dec 25, 1854, Edward Parsons Day, of Richmond Centre, 
N. Y., son of Rev. Warren Day* and Sarah Kellogg, who was the 
daughter of Deacon Jabez and Temperance (Walton) Kellogg, of Han- 
over, N. H. HARRIET HUBBARD, an invalid for many years, was 
a resigned, patient Christian. She was of tall and stately presence, some- 
what reserved, and by many was considered as beautiful in feature as 
she was in manners. She died of consumption in Leroy, March 19, 
1 868, and was buried in Maplewood Cemetery at Pavilion. Her father — 
LEWIS HUBBARD, sixth child of the nine children of Captain 
Josiah and Eunice (Chapin) Hubbard, was born March 15, 1803, in wSan- 
disfield, Mass., and died in Leroy June 9, 1886. He married March 24, 
1830, a descendant of the famous Adams family of Massachusetts, 
Evaline Adams, of Egremont, Mass. (b Jan 11, 1805, d in Leroy March 
19, 1872), and was a prosperous farmer, wool -grower and horticulturist. 
No farm in his vicinity was better tilled or more productive, no sheep 
compared with his, no orchards contained finer fruit. His 100-acre tract 
yielded twice the revenue that his neighbors' 200 and 300 acre tracts did. 
He was extremely industrious, methodical and pious, and was contin- 
ually performing kind deeds for his neighbors. He could be stern and 
inflexible though, if the occasion demanded it, to the writer's personal 
knowledge, whose young blood was occasionally set into active circula- 
tion by him, just to " get the dust out of his jacket and keep him from 
the gallows," as he tersely put it. He was an exemplary member of 
the Methodist Episcopal Church, which he attended regularly for years, 
never missing a Sunday. Though horses were plentiful in the stables, 
he considered it his duty to walk to allow them to rest upon the Sabbath. 
No matter how deep the snow or how fiercely the March winds blew 
he could always be found on the Lord's Day dressed in a black suit with 
a high old-fashioned collar and a long-winding neckcloth on listening 
intently to the words of the good exhorter. He was also buried in 
Maplewood Cemetery and his death was deeply felt by his neighbors. 

* Kev. Warren Day graduated from Dartmouth College in 1814 in the next class after Daniel 
Webster's, who was his firm friend in after as well as in his college life. In consequence of receiving 
this college education he agreed to forfeit his rights in his father's estates, which agreement his 
father faithfully kept. He was the son of Orion Day (and Joanna Everett) of Wrentham, Mass., and 
Sharon, Vt., who entered the Revolutionary War at seventeen and was at West I'oint at the time of 
the capture of Major Andre, the British spy. Rev. Warren Day was the sixth in descent (through 
Orion, Ichabod. John, John) from Knsign Ralph Day. of Dedham, Mass., who settled there previous 
to Jan 1, 1645, and married Oct 12, 1647. at the old Fairbanks homestead Susan Fairbanks, dau of Jon- 
athan and Grace Fairbanks, formerly of Sowerby, Yorkshire, England. The FairbanKs Homestead is 
about the oldest one in New England (the Craddock garrison houseatMedford, Mass., being possibly a 
year older), and was built in 1636 by Jonathan, one of the pioneers of Dedham. (See Illustration.)

HENRY GUERNSEY HUBBARD, eldest son of Bela and Sarah 
(Baughman) Hubbard, was born in Detroit, Mich., May 6, 1850, and 
graduated at Harvard University in 1873, taking first honors in Natural 
History. He made this science the aim of his life, his specialty being 
entomology. Receiving an appointment from the U. S. Department of 
Agriculture as entomologist to investigate the insects injurious to cot- 
ton, and subsequently the orange, he spent several years in Florida, and 
prepared a voluminous report on the orange insects and remedies, 
which the Department published in 1885. He also largely interested 
himself in orange growing and the experimental culture of semi-tropical 
plants, and has contributed many papers to the leading scientific jour- 
nals. He owns a large and valuable collection of insects. In Decem- 
ber, 1887, he married Kate Lazier, daughter of Frederick L. and Martha 
(Garrison) Lazier of Detroit. Children — Bela (b Aug 13, 1890) and 
Margeret (b June 12, 1892). 

COLLINS BAUGHMAN HUBBARD, second son of Bela and Sarah 
(Baughman) Hubbard, was born in Detroit Feb 8, 1852, and engaged in 
the real estate and banking business, being now President of The Citi- 
zens' Savings Bank of Detroit. He was a member of the State Legisla- 
ture in 1 88 1, and made one of Detroit's Police Commissioners in 1892, 
which position he still holds. He is also largely interested in orange 
growing in Florida. Mr. HUBBARD possesses a handsome seal ring 
that bears upon it (intaglio) the Edward Hubbard, Burchanger, Essex, 
Eng., Coat of Arms. His great grandfather, Rev. Bela Hubbard, D. D., 
brought the design from England in 1764. In 1875 he married Ida M. 
Haigh, daughter of Henry and Martha (Murray) Haigh of Detroit, who 
bore him Frederick (b May 20, 1877). In 1890 he married Anna Geor- 
giana, daughter of Anna (Elliott) Knight and Hon. George Knight, 
covmsel for the Crown County Meath, Ireland. Children — Edward 
King (b in Aug, 1891) and Anna (b in May, 1893).

LUTHER PRESCOTT HUBBARD, eldest child of Luther and 
Hannah (Russell) Hubbard, and eighth in descent from George Hub- 
bard of Guilford, was b in Hollis, N. 
H., June 30, 1808, and d Sept. 18, 1894, 
in Greenwich, Conn. He was 86 years 
old, and left a widow, Mary Cummings 
(Tenney ) Hubbard, and four children. 
He received his education in the dis- 
trict school, and later in Pinkerton 
Academy, at Derry. In 1 824 he helped 
to build the first cotton mill in Nashua. 
The next year he took up his father's 
trade, that of a stonecutter, and was 
first engaged at Quincy, Mass., in 
shaping the stones of the Bunker Hill 
Monument, and later those of the 
Quincy Market and the Tremont 
House, Boston. Mr. HUBBARD came 
to New York to live in 1827, where 
his handiwork can still be seen in 
Wall and Pearl street buildings. He 
afterwards became the confidential 
clerk in the office of Ira Norris & 
Co., granite dealers. Mr. HUBBARD was the first to distribute Bibles. 
in New York for the Marine Bible Society. This was in 1833. He soon 
afterward took a desk in the office of the American Seamen's Friend 
Society, of which he became financial agent in 1863. He took his family 
to Greenwich, Conn., and they have been living there ever since. For 
forty years he was the Secretary of the New England Society of New 
York City. He was also a warden of the borough of Greenwich. He 
became famous for his antipathy to tobacco, and wrote a leaflet on " How 
a Smoker Got a Home," of which he printed and circulated over one 
million copies, some of them in foreign languages. He published in 1872 
a partially complete genealogical pamphlet of his particular branch of 
the family, using as a motto the quotation: "He who regards not the 
memory of his ancestors deserves to be forgotten by posterity."

(Preceding ancestors unknown), Joseph Hubbard — Anne Crews, 
Rhoda Hubbard — Samuel Nixon. 

WILLIAM PENN NIXON, youngest of the four children of Samuel 
and Rhoda (Hubbard) Nixon, was born in Newport (now Fountain 
City), Ind., March 19, 1832. He graduated from an academy, taught 
school two years, and in 1858 graduated in law from the University 
of Pennsylvania, opening thereupon a law office in Cincinnati, which 

. '^k 



prospered until 1861, when his wife (Mary Stites) died. This bereave- 
ment was a deep one and benumbed his ambition for a time. For many 
months he never entered his office. The engines supplying his vital 
power could not long remain inactive, however, and soon found play 
for his versatile ability in a two-term service in the Ohio Legislature. 

In 1868 he embarked upon the rapid current of journalism. After 
piloting four years the Cincinnati Daily Evening Chronicle (consolidated 
eventually with the Cincinnati Times) he anchored in 1872 in the port 
of Chicago, a place never less lively than a South Sea simoon or a 


menagerie at supper-time. Mr. NIXON grasped in exultation the situ- 
ation as he repeated over to himself the words, 

This is the place I long have sought, 
And mourned because I found it not. 

The Inter-Ocean had a door wide open for him. He entered and 
assumed management. As one tingles when an electric battery current 
pervades him, so did the Inter-Ocean begin to vibrate and scintillate at 
his touch. It became a great paper. It is a great power. Mr. NIXON 
is a stiff-backed Republican, and is the Editor-in-Chief of this great 
plant. He owns the controlling interest that shapes the paper's daily 
policy. (His brother, Dr. Oliver W. Nixon, who married Louise Elston, 
owns also a part interest in it, and ably assists in its management). 
Being one-eighth Indian, Mr. NIXON has a double right to be called 
Chief NIXON. He is descended from a Cherokee Chief. 

About 1740 Joseph Hubbard, a Quaker preacher, married Anne 
Crews, who had a sister Susanna. Both were the daughters of a Chero- 
kee Chief who married in North Carolina a white woman. The Chero- 
kees of North Carolina at that time were wealthy, powerful, friendly to 
the government, and highly civilized. Anne and Susanna were finely 
educated in the Virginia schools, where Anne met Joseph Hubbard. 
They had eight children — Hardy, Joseph, Jeremiah, Woodson, Jacob, 
Anne, Susanna and Rhoda. (See Virginia Hubbards). The sons were 
known as the " Five Big Cherokee Boys," whose physical prowess made 
them well known locally and inspired much wholesome respect. Rhoda 
married a well-known planter, Samuel Nixon, who lived on the banks 
of the James River seventeen miles from Petersburg, Va. Joseph 
Hubbard was born in Mecklenburgh County, Va., and lived to be over 
ninety years. He freed all his slaves when it became to the Quakers 
odious in principle to continue holding them. Anne (Crews) Hubbard 
died in 181 2. The father of this Joseph Hubbard might have borne 
the name Joseph also, according to tradition that relates that a Joseph 
Hubbard came over in 1681 with William Penn, though the earlier 
Joseph could not have been the one who married Anne Crews. 

Mr. NIXON married for his second wife Elizabeth Duffield and has 
children Mary Stites, Bertha Duffield and William Penn Nixon, Jr. 
They reside in Chicago, 111.

The compiler has picked up motley scraps of Hubbard data from early colonial records so disas- 
sociated from genealogical landmarks that he can not properly classify them. It has been thought 
best to preserve this data, even in a heterogeneous form, rather than have it lost, perhaps, forever. 
Superficially, a great deal of this seems valueless, yet many descendants now investigating their pedi- 
grees may be able to use these clues to advantage. 

\ considerable portion of what follows has arrived too late for careful investigation or proper 
classification. The compiler's urgent requests have met with varied results. S« >me have ignored them 
entirely others have forwarded much that was found to be deficient in names, dates, places, or other 
valual .!.- clues necessary for identification and appropriate arrangement among the different branches; 
many more have waited until the book was nearly printed before forwarding material: stiU more 
have trusted to the possible chance of others attending to the matter, and will be. consequently, dis- 
appointed to find desired data missing. Thousands of Hubbards are scattered throughout thousands 
of towns, villages and cities. I >ne personcan not obtain such data except by voluntary contributions 
The co-operation of many is necessary. This labor is usually irksome and but few are w.l tag _t.> 
trouble themselves about it. These things account for the appearance of this disjointed data and the 
incomplete statistics to be found in some parts of the context.

John Hubbard was a private in Captain David Henchman's company 
(composed of 121 men) in the King Philip War. As this company 
operated principally in eastern Massachusetts, this John may have been 
either the son of Anthony of Dedham or the Rev. William of Ipswich. 

Francis Hubbard's certificate of administration dated Boston, Feb 7, 
1769, mentions Rachel Hubbard, widow of James Tucker, wheelwright, 
both of Boston. In the settlement papers are mentioned his second 
daughter Mary Burton, and four other children. Mary Burton gets a 
house and land near Fort Hill. 

The Paymaster-General of Chancery in England, according to the 
London Times of July 4, 1864, had in hand at that time ^77,693,769, 
awaiting claimants, many of whom have been kept out of the enjoy- 
ment of their inheritances because of inability to prove their line of 
descent. This does not include amounts in the Bank of England await- 
ing claimants, which is also enormous. In American money the sum 
amounts to over $380,000,000, and is in itself not an insignificant argu- 
ment in favor of keeping careful and accurate genealogical records. 
In Dougal & Company's English Register of heirs wanted for estates 
and legacies are mentioned 16 Hubbards, Hubbords, or Huberts. 


In the New England Genealogical and Historical Register, Vol. 22 
page 28, appears a very able article upon English local nomenclature. 
It treats of the derivation of names from their ethnological source, 
showing the particular prefixes and suffixes of different nations by 
which their origin is made known. " Hubbard " is of Danish origin.

Almost all passengers who embarked from England for St. Christo- 
phers, or the Bermudas or Sommer Islands (named after Sir George 
Sommers about 1609) eventually arrived in New England. A small 
percentage, however, remained there. Vessels then did not take a direct 
course across the Atlantic, but sailed southwesterly, touching at West 
Indies, and then sailed northerly along the North American coast. 

Since the summer of 1858 the descendants of the Ipswich Hubbards 
descended through Dr. John Hubbard of Meriden, Ct., have met in 
annual reunion. These meetings have usually been held at Meriden or 
West Haven, Ct., and have been productive of the heartiest good fel- 
lowship and family feeling. Branches of other Hubbard families would 
do well to emulate these worthy efforts to keep alive fraternal ties. 

When Rev. Bela Hubbard, D. D., of New Haven, Ct., was ordained 
in London in 1764 the Bishop requested his name. He complied. Not 
understanding his first name he asked him to spell it. The bright 
y«>ung applicant for holy orders then slowly spelled it — " B-E-L-A." 
" A very strange name," remarked the Bishop; " I never heard it before!' 
" Quite likely," replied the youthful cleric; "it is a scriptural name." 

Henry Ainsworth Parker, in the New England Historical and Gene- 
alogical Register, Volume 41, page 95, gives in an article many reasons 
why our ancestors frequently made their mark instead of signing their 
names He freely quotes from Rev. S. R. Maitlandin his " Dark Ages," 
who says that there were several reasons for this condition of things: 
(1) Ignorance of letters, (2) physical inability (blindness, paralysis, 
etc.); (3) an affectation of dignity, which caused many to require their 
notaries to sign their names for them. Dr. Maitland mentions the 
names of many kings who indulged themselves in this whim. So it 
need not necessarily follow that the sign of the cross for a signature 
indicated inability to write. The compiler found evidence of this while 
perusing old records in a case where sometimes the name was signed 
and sometimes the cross used. 


The will of Michael Hubbard, of Baltimore, Md., was probated in 
Boston, Mass., April 13, 1759. He appointed his son Peter sole executor, 
and admonished him to let his Uncle Thomas of London, Eng., have 
sums of money from time to time for his necessities. He also bequeathed 
to his two daughters in London, Catherine and (?) Antis /100 each per 
annum " provided they retire from the city of London— where I suppos • 
they now live— and afterward live in any country town distant from 

In a list of "Anglais Captives" (mostly children) taken in the wars 
between New France and New England in the 18th century, there ap- 
pears the name of one Joseph Philip Ouabird (Hubbard) who at the age 
of 17 was baptized December 12, 1706, in the Roman Catholic Church at 
Cape vSt. Ignatius. This partly accounts for the existence of some Hub- 
bards in Canada, with the additional fact that some Tory Hubbards fled 
there (to New Brunswick, principally), and settled during the Revolu- 
tionary War. 

An extract taken from the Proceedings of the Royal Society, London, 
from Chambers Encyclopedia, reads as follows: "Another matter to 
which the Society turned their attention was the formation of a museum, 
the nucleus being ' A Collection of Rarities formerly belonging to Mr. 
Hubbard,' which, by a resolution of Council, passed February 21, 1666, 
was purchased for the sum of jT 100. This Museum — atone time the 
most famous in London — was presented to the Trustees of the British 
Museum in 1731, upon the removal of the Society to Somerset House." 

In the Middletown (Ct.) Riverside Cemetery is the following inscrip- 
tion on the headstone of Mary, wife of Mr. Nathaniel Hubbard, who 
"died May 20, 1738, in the 86th year of his age." She died April 6, 
1732, aged 69:

The British took possession of the hill about 5 o'clock, so that the 
heat of the battle must have lasted about two hours. * * * Daniel 
Hubbard wore a cue, braided in two strands down his back. As he 
passed by, Mr. Craige saw him dodge his head, and it was afterwards 
found that a musket ball had cut one of these strands so close to his 
head as to graze the skin. * * * 51 years after the battle (1826) six 
of this company were alive; among them Daniel Hubbard. He was 
selectman from 1S06 to 1810. — History of Leicester ; Mass. 



The English Parliament enacted in September, 1752, that eleven days 
should be dropped from that month and thereafter the year should 
begin with January 1 instead of March 25 (Annunciation Day), as there- 
tofore. This was the abandonment of the old style of chronology or 
Julian Calendar inaugurated by Julius Caesar 45 years B. C, and the 
adoption of the Gregorian Calendar, instituted by Pope Gregory XIII. 
in 1582 to absorb the surplusage of 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 49 seconds 
over the year of 365 days, which wise scientific innovation Great Britain 
refused to adopt then because of its Catholic origin. January was then 
called the eleventh month instead of the first, and March the first month 
instead of the third. This explains why in this volume there is an ad- 
ditional figure to the year (separated by a hyphen) in many cases. 

A certain George Hubbard, aged 16, left London, England, Sep- 
tember 3, 1635, for " Bormodes," aboard the Dorsset, John Flower, mas- 
ter. He may have continued to New England, or he may have been the 
one who with a John Hubbard, were in the list of " The names of ye 
Govern' & Councill of ye Assembly of ye Sommer Islands." The fol- 
lowing is an extract from the official records of the " Somer Islands

This antique relic of olden times was made across the broad Atlantic, 
and confronts us to-day in a very sound state of preservation. It 
is of oak, about four feet high and two feet deep, with a crude scroll- 
work embellishing the outside front, or panels. It was constructed with 

rather clumsy imple- 
ments, the back of it 
appearing to have 
been roughly hewn 
out with an axe. The 
wood, except the pan- 
els, is very thick — 
about 2 inches — and 
is held together with 
wooden pegs, the fore- 
runners of the iron 
nail. This chest was 
doubtless kept to store 
linen in, and has never 
been out of the fam- 
ily's possession since 
it was brought over 
from England by 
George Hubbard, in 
1633, to Guilford, Ct. 
HUBBARD, now liv- 
ing on the old George 
Hubbard building- 
site in Guilford, is the fortunate possessor of this valuable heirloom. 
She inherited it from her aunts Anne and Betsy Hubbard, and will 
take good care that it falls into appreciative hands at her demise. It 
was earnestly sought after to exhibit at the World's Fair; but knowing 
that money could not replace it if it was destroyed by fire or railway 
wreck she wisely retained it. What a chapter of rich historic inci- 
dents might it not relate had it only the power of language, and how 
many vexed genealogical tangles could it not unweave, is left to the 
reader to conjecture. It has excited considerable interest among anti- 
quarians. It formerly opened at the top, but Miss HUBBARD had it 
altered so that the two front panels were converted into doors which 
swing open like those of a cupboard. A shelf was also inserted. These 
alterations made it far more convenient for use. 




Hobart College, situated at the 'foot of Seneca Lake, in the pretty 
town of Geneva, N. Y., was founded through the active instrumentality 
of the Right Rev. John Henry Hobart, D.D., Bishop of New York, who 
descended from Edmund Hobart of Hingham, Mass., who emigrated 
from Norfolk, England, in 1633. The Annual Catalogue of Hobart 
College reads: "In 1818 Bishop Hobart recognizing the importance, if 
not necessity, of having in the western portion of his great diocese a 
school of liberal culture, as well as a theological school, communicated 
to friends in Geneva his plan to transfer the Theological School from 
Fairfield to Geneva. In 182 1 the transfer was made. In 1826 the first 
class was graduated. Of the earlier additions to the permanent re- 
sources of the college, a noteworthy one was the benefaction, in 185 1, of 
Trinity Church, N. Y., amounting to $3,000 annually. One of the results 
of this benefaction was the change in the following year of the corporate 
title of the College to Hobart Free College, which was further modified 
in i860 to Hobart College." Bishop Hobart founded in 1825 the Charles 
Startin Professorship. The Hobart Professorship was founded in 1852 
by gifts from friends of the College. Though Hobart College is not 
large in point of numbers, it ranks with the highest of its class for 
superior theological training. 

New Brunswick, N.J.,Jan. 11, 1895. — Ben, a faithful old horse who 
has done various kinds of duty for Liveryman John V. Hubbard of this 
city, saved his owner considerable loss at 2 o'clock this morning when a 
fire broke out in Mr. Hubbard's private office. Ben occupied an open 
stall about fifty feet from Mr. Hubbard's office. The horse is always 
quiet, but he must have scented danger, for he broke away from his 
halter, backed out of the stall and ran 150 feet through the corridor of 
the stable to the rear office, where slept George Witt, the night man. 
The door of this office was closed. The first thing Witt knew the horse 
was standing over him and he was lying on the floor. Witt had all his 
clothes on, and Ben had taken a firm hold at his waist and lifted him off 
his couch. He might have carried him out of the door, but the office 
was too small to move around. Witt was dumbfounded until he smelled 
smoke. Then he led the horse out of the rear office and Ben trotted 
along with him to Mr. Hubbard's office, where there was a lively blaze. 
Neighbors were warned and the fire was soon checked. A rug had 
taken fire from the stove. Mr. Hubbard says he would not part with 
Ben at any price. He considers that the intelligent horse saved him 
his thirty horses and carriages, valued at $15,000 — \ T ew York Sun.

In the Welsh language Hub means " non " or "without," and therefore 
Hubbard is non-poetical, or without poetry — in other words, practical. 

It came from " Hopyard." An Indian woman in remote times gave 
birth to a child in this field of viniculture and called him "Hopyard," 
from which the name " Hubbard" was derived. [This is a most absurd 

A History of Christian Names says, according to a correspondent, 
that William Arthur, M.A., records the belief that Hobart, Hibbard, 
Hubert and Hubbard are synonyms, and mean "bright form, fair hope." 
In Saxon, hiewe — color, form, beauty; sometimes beort, bright. [This 
account, strictly speaking, scarcely defines its origin. \ 

Hugibert, or bright mind, belonged to the Bishop of Liege, to whom 
attached the Teutonic story of the hunter's conversion by the cross, — 
bearing stag, making him the patron of hunters and his name very pop- 
ular in France, Flanders, Northern Italy and probably once in England. 
Since it has left its the two names became " Hubbard" and " Hobart." It 
used to be wrongly translated "bright of hue." 

Some think the word " Bard " was the root and the prefix " Hub " an 
after thought. There are people living named Obard and Obbard who 
have claimed kinship to Hubbards on the strength of the word " Bard." 
"Bard "is of Celtic origin and one tradition says it originated among 
the Druids in Wales. It was often spelled Barde, Bardd, Barz and 
Bardigan. Bards were originally composers of poetry who sang their 
compositions about heroes and princes in accompaniment to stringed 
musical instruments. [There may be a grain of truth in this version, in 
so far as it relates to the word " bard "J. 

A New York gentleman, a linguist, gives the origin of the name 
Hubbard among the Indians as meaning "a man in a canoe," which 
may account somewhat for the following interesting tradition among 
the Delawares, who were part of the Cherokee nation. They believe 
that every one has a guardian spirit, which comes in the form of some 
bird or animal in dreams, and tells them what to do and what will hap- 
pen. The guardian spirit is sent from the Great Spirit. Ten years 
before white men came to America a young man told his dream in the 
temple when the Delawares lived on the Atlantic coast. He saw com- 
ing across the great waters a large canoe with pinions (wings) and con- 
taining strange people. He told this dream and predicted the arrival 
of the white men each year until they came and were seen by his peo- 
ple. Consequently, any white man seen approaching in a canoe was a 
" Hubbard." 



This society, which has for its motto: "Put up your sword— Love 
your enemies;- is presided over by WILLIAM GILMER HUBBARD of 

Columbus, ( )hio. It was 
organized in 1868 and in- 
c< >rp< (rated in 1 894. Daniel 
Hill is its General Secre- 
tary; Samuel C. Mills, Re- 
cording Secretary; and 
John Kendall, Treasurer. 
Including the foregoing, 
are the following Direc- 
tors: Allen Jay, A. H. 
Hussey, Dr. J. E. Rhoades, 
Hannah J . Bailey, Richard 
H. Thomas, Joseph Ar- 
nold, John F. Harrison 
and Naomi W. Harrison. 
As is well known, the 
members of this society 
are opposed to war with 
its bloodshed and desola- 
tion, and manage to live 
at peace among them- 
selves and with their 
neighbors without invok- 
ing its aid to enforce their 
rights. Their persecution 
in Old and New England 
in early days is well 
known to the student of history. Where they were once treated with 
ignominy and reproach they are now revered and held up as bright ex- 
amples of morality and inflexible honor. A number of them came from 
the South principally Virginia and North Carolina, from where they 
were driven by the Slaveholders, though previous to ,688 they owned 
a es throughout the Atlantic States. Then an agitation began 
which lasted' for forty years. After , ?2 8 no man was allowed .*

against it" John Hubbard, the father ot Mr. HIBBARD, the

Stonington, Decmbr, 1730. D.HUBBARD. 

ELIZABETH HUBBARD, born about 1647, lived with her aunt, 
Mrs. Dr. Griggs, at Salem Village, Mass. About 1690 she, with other 
young ladies, whose ages ranged from ten to twenty years, used to visit 
their pastor's residence (Rev. Mr. Parris's) to practice in a social way 
fortune-telling, necromancy, palmistry and magic. Among these young 
ladies was the minister's daughter. Soon they became quite expert, 
and their performance elicited much wonderment, and to many were 
construed as emanating from an evil source. In the history of Salem 
Witchcraft by Charles W, Upham it is claimed that this was the begin- 
ning of the famous tidal wave of persecution which has so badly stained 
the fair character of New England's body politic. In the deposition of 
Ezekiel Cheevers, taken before the magistrates of Salem Village in 
March, 169 1-2, at the trial of Sarah Good, Sarah Osburn and Tituba, the 
Indian woman, for witchcraft, the following remarks appear of record: 

Mr. Ezekiel Cheevers affirmed to ye jury that he saw Martha, wife to Giles Cory, examined before 
ye magistrates. At which time he observed the ye, s'd Cory, sometimes did bite her lip: and when 
she bit her lip, mercy Lewis and Elizabeth Hubbard and others of ye afflicted persons were bitten; 
also when s'd Cory pinched her fingers together, then mercy lewise, Elizabeth Hubbard, and others 
were pinched and according to ye motions of s'd Martha Coryes body, so were ye afflicted persons 
afflicted. This he affirmed to be true, according to ye best of his observations. Mr. Edward Putnam 
affirmed ye same to ye jury of inquest that Mr. Cheevers doth; Mr. Thomas Putnam affirmed ye same, 
all upon oaths, all of them.

FRANCIS SALTUS SALTUS, son of Francis H. and Julia (Hub- 
bard) Saltus, was born in Waverly Place, New York City, Nov. 23, 1849, 
and died in June, 1889. He was a born poet, a phenomenal linguist, 
and a master of harmony and music. The poems published since his 
death are The Witch of Endor, Dreams After Sunset, Flasks and 
Flagons, and Shadows and Ideals. Many of his dramas, memoirs, 
poems, comic operas and musical gems yet remain unpublished. He 
was an extensive traveler about the world, and passed many years in 
the realm of arts in Southern Europe, acquiring while then' a mastery 
of twenty-three languages, besides dialects. This gifted person's physi- 
cal temple appeared to the eye to be a most fitting repository for the 
cultivation of belles-lettres and the finest arts. He was the perfect bean 
ideal of artistic beauty and grace, so much so that Cabanel, the famous 


artist, once followed him, being much struck with his appearance, and 
begged the privilege of painting him. Afterwards in referring to him 
he said: "His is the most perfect ideal Greek head and face I have 
ever seen, and if he will allow me to paint a portrait of him for myself 
I will duplicate it for him." At the age of ten he was a skilled pianist. 
His musical talent he inherited from his mother, Julia Hubbard. 
Godey's Magazine for June, 1893, says of her — "so wonderful were her 
musical accomplishments, so celestial her voice, that entranced crowds 
used to gather in Washington Square on summer evenings to catch 
through the open windows of her father's residence the heavenly strains 
of her singing. Her father, Mr. Hubbard, was music mad, and 
gathered about him all the noted singers of the day. Although of 
independent wealth and exalted social position he was frequently ap- 
proached by operatic managers with offers of engagements for his 
daughter. Marti, Manager of the Tacon Opera House, Havana, in 
1848, offered him in his zeal $1,000 per night for fifty performances. 
These overtures were graciously but firmly declined." 

FRANCIS SALTUS SALTUS had a severe attack of typhoid fever 
while in Paris in 1874, which undermined his health and gradually 
brought his brilliant and phenomenal career to a close. The following 

poem to Marie , a lovely French girl, was the immortalization of 

the holiness of his passion for her. Her death was untimely, and but a 
few months before their appointed marriage day. Other poems were 
consecrated to her, notably " My Faith " and "A Farewell." The latter 
he wrote just before leaving her for a second trip around the world. 
It was the voice of " Love's sweet misery." He was buried in historic 
Sleepy Hollow at Tarrytown-on-the- Hudson, a fitting place for the clay 
of genius to forever repose. 


When'er my sad gaze lingers in thine eyes, 
That glow with all the idyllic warmth of Greece, 
I find from care a lovable release — 
My heart throbs warmer in a charmed surprise. 

Floods of fancy awake, and I surmise. 
While subtle pleasures, vaguely known, increase, 
That the calm spirit of delicious Peace, 
Candid and beautiful, within them lies. 

Then as I look again, with whims and dreams. 

Another shape appears in stainless white, 

Smiling upon me radiant and fair; 

And to my rapt and ravished mind, it seems 

As if sweet Purity, in robes of light. 

Had come to take eternal refuge there. 



FREDERICK CHARLES HUBBARD, his mother, and sister 
Laura, now Mrs. William J. Patton, Albany, N. Y., came from New- 
market, Suffolk, England, and settled in the United States. He was a 
soldier in the late civil war, and left a daughter, Eurilla E. Hubbard, 
now of Paterson, N. J. 

JOHN HUBBARD, born in London, England, came to America and 
settled in Prince George County, Va. He married about 1820 and had 

William, Ann Elizabeth (m Whitney, of Richmond, Va.) and 

John T. Hubbard, of Petersburg, Va., whose children are Mary J/., 
Nannie O.,john II, Charles L.,Anu E., William T., Nelia F., Christo- 
pher B., and Vernon R. 

Members of the great " Hubbard " Family are scattered over the 
world. Some of them are located in India. ISAAC HUBBARD, son 
of Isaac and Elizabeth (Gardiner) Hubbard of Great Bentley, Essex, 
Eng., was in the Bengal Foot Artillery at Fort William Huttyghur, 
East India, November 12, 1818. He had children Matilda and William 
Henry Hubbard— also brothers WILLIAM and THOMAS. WILLIAM 
was an extensive florist in Colchester, Essex, Eng., while THOMAS 
joined the British Navy and subsequently the Revenue Marine Service. 
In the North Sea, aboard the cutter " Ranger," he was wounded in a 
fight with smugglers, which caused his retirement from British service, 
though as an owner of vessels trading between Great Yarmouth and 
Baltic and Mediterranean ports he continued a seafaring life. While 
commanding one of his ships he was drowned in a gale in Yarmouth 
Roads with one of his sons. He married Elizabeth Warren and had 
Thomas, James, Ann, Margaret, and Isaac Gardiner Hubbard. The 
latter was born August 18, 181 8, at Great Yarmouth, Eng., married 
Rebecca Penny (the only daughter of Captain Joseph Penny of the 
British Navy), and came to the United States in 1845 with his wife and 
infant son to reside. This son, Isaac Penny Hubbard, the only child, was 
born December 3, 1844, in Great Yarmouth, and educated in New York 
City schools. He served in the late civil war in Co. " K," 37th New . 
York Volunteers, and is a member of James C. Rice Post No. 29, G. A. 
R., and a practicing lawyer in New York City, having been admitted 
to the bar there in 1867. He has the care of several large estates, and 
has won cases in several will contests. He married Harriet Armstrong, 
daughter of William and Maria (Benney) Armstrong of New York. 
Children — Franklin Armstrong (b Aug 10, 1884), Edith Rebecca (b 
June 11, 1887), William Pesoa (b July 27, 1890) and Gardiner Benney 
Hubbard (b May 22, 1892).

In 1880 Mr. H. P. Hubbard, the publisher of this book, then at the 
head of the International Newspaper Agency at New Haven, Connecti- 
cut, conceived the idea of publishing a Newspaper and Bank Directory 
of the World which should be complete in every respect. 

He secured the aid and endorsement of Hon. William M. Evarts, 
Secretary of State, who, in a special letter, requested each American 
consul to give all the aid in his power to Mr. Hubbard in "this work oi 
international importance." _ 

With this endorsement he was fortified at every point, and m seven- 
teen months from the time pen was first put to paper, the first two vol- 
umes were issued complete, and at once rivctted the attention oi news- 
papers and business men generally. 

It was the first work of the kind ever published, and up to this date- 
no one has essayed to follow him. The year following Volume 3 was 
issued being partly printed on - Cosmopolitan Paper," made, from old 
papers f^m every country in the world. These books weighed 
over four pounds each, aggregating over 3.900 pages, an. cost to pro- 
duce 5 000 copies of each volume over $60,000. They contained over 
7 oo illustrations and , 60 languages. The books are now very scarce.

Of this unique compendium, the New York Tribune said in a two- 
column review, " This marvelous work is worthy to stand beside the 
dictionary and the encyclopaedia." The preface, as well as all important 
descriptive matter, was in English, French, German and Spanish, in 
addition to the vernacular of each country. 

To give an idea of how far this was carried, the title of the book is 
herewith given in English, Greek, French, German, Chinese, Spanish, 
Italian and Arabic. 

What the secretary of the New York Geographical Society was pleased 
to call " the most important contribution to geographical literature for 
twenty years," also appeared in the gazetteer department of the work, 
in the shape of the name of each country in all obtainable languages. 

One specimen will give an idea of how much difference there is: 


Egyptian — Musr. French — Egypte. German — Aegypten. Russian — 

Egiptia. Italian — Egitto. Spanish — Egipto. Portuguese — Egitto. 

Swedish — Egypten. Turkish — Kibt; or, Keebt. Arabic —

Mizr; or, Mizraim. Chinese — An 2 Chi 2 . ij^A. 

It was dedicated jointly to President Arthur and Queen Victoria as 
" Representative heads of the great English-speaking Nations of the earth, 
whose one hundred millions of people, having the same origin, the same 
language and the same standards of civilization, occupy the front rank 
among the instrumentalities for the enlightenment of mankind P 

The regular business edition was bound in scarlet cloth and gold, with 
red edges. Its outside brilliancy caused the late Oliver Wendell Holmes 
to write Mr. Hubbard in the following happy vein: 

" When I first looked upon it, red all over, so that it seemed to 

' Blush like a banner bathed in slaughter,' 
I thought it must be an account of all the bloodiest battles ever fought, and I was much pleased to 
find, on looking through its pages, that it might rather be called a General Index of Peaceful 

Copies of volumes i and 2 were sent to all American consuls, and sev- 
eral have informed the writer that they are the most useful and most 
called for books in the consular library.* 

* Mr. Felix Mathews, the American Consul at Tangiers, Morocco, in making his report that there 
were "no newspapers or banks in Morocco," thought Mr. Hubbard too liberal to reward him for so 
slight (though to Mr. II. necessary) service; and as a special compliment obtained from the Sultan 
and sent to Mr. Hubbard several gold coins which were struck by the Moors at Granada when they 
occupied Spain in about 1200, together with a piece of the curtain of the Alhambra, which the Moors 
despoiled. It is silk embroidery on just such canvas as the ladies use to-day, and the colors of the 
silk are remarkably clear and bright.

An edition de luxe was prepared on very heavy paper and bound in 
embossed Russia leather, and sent, through the State Department at 
Washington and American Ministers Resident, to all the crowned 
heads and rulers of the world, from all of whom Mr. Hubbard received 
acknowledgments in their languages. A large portfolio containing these 
memorabilia, together with letters from John Bright, Mr. Gladstone, 
Tennyson, Victor Hugo, Longfellow, Whittier, Emerson and scores of 
others prominent in literary, military, political and social life, is among 
his choicest treasures. 

Six enormous scrap-books filled with newspaper reviews of this book 
in over a dozen languages attest the opinion of the press of the world. 
In these reviews the adjectives " marvelous," " stupendous," " unpar- 
alleled," "unique," "grand," and others, were used liberally. 

The Edinburgh, Scotland, Guardian, when the book was first an- 
nounced, said that the feat was " too great even for an American to 
accomplish." When it was finished, the Guardian took the space of 
nearly four columns to own up that it was well done ! 


In the war of 1812 several hundred citizens of Marblehead were cap- 
tured by the enemy and confined in Dartmoor Prison. Among them 
was Mr. John Hubbard, son of the pastor of the First Congrega- 
tional Church of Marblehead. In 181 5 they were released and put on 
board cartel ships for home. The Captain of John's ship was inimical 
to Americans and a timid sailor, being afraid to set all sail. The Mar- 
blehead prisoners, expert navigators, were disgusted with his slow pro- 
gress and unskilful sailing, and impatient to reach welcome homes and 
embrace glad hearts, so they elected John Hubbard commander 
of the ship, who politely informed the Captain and his crew that they 
would be relieved for a short period. The Captain seeing a determined 
look of business upon his face yielded, and de facto Captain John Hub- 
bard crowded on all the ship's canvas and speedily reached Marblehead. 

William B. Hubbard, Marblehead, manned one of the guns on the 
Cumberland when she was run into by the rebel ram Merrimac and 
sunk. " When the ship was sinking, and death stared them in the face, 
the first thought of many was, naturally, that of self-preservation. Not 
so with Hubbard. His powder-boy had become frightened and could 
not be found. ' I am determined to have one more shot at them,' cried 
the gallant Hubbard, and immediately went below to procure am- 
munition. On his return, as he approached his gun to reload it, a shot 
irom the enemy laid him on the deck. He went down with the ship, 
nobly dying at his post."— S^/w/r/ Read's Hist. Marblehead, Mass.

Along- the shores of the Charles River in Massachusetts are unmis- 
takable traces of the visits of Norsemen in the ioth and nth centuries, 
the principal adventurers being Biarni Heriulfsson, Leif Ericsson, his 
brother Thorvald, and Thorfinn Karlsefin. Prof. Eben Norton Hors- 
ford, deceased, performed an inestimable service to the intelligent world 
by years of arduous labor spent in pursuing the delights of archaeology 
about this section of Massachusetts. He found their landmarks prin- 
cipally at Cambridge, Elmwood or Gerry's Landing, Watertown, and 
above that point. The sagas of Iceland corroborate the Professor's 
conclusions. Sites of log houses, forts, dams, docks, fish-pits and an 
amphitheatre testify to the truth of these discoveries. 

At Watertown, where George Hubbard the American emigrant prob- 
ably landed, himself descended from that hardy, exploring race, is the 
amphitheatre. (The place was then called Norumbega, Norvega or 
Norbega, meaning " from Norway.") The terraces, six of them, are 
plainly marked, and a pool of water occupies the center. At the dams 
at Watertown was a pretty fall of water, the dams being constructed of 
smooth boulders from the adjacent fields. Mrs. Elizabeth G. Shepard 
says that " the docks are plainly discernible — walled channels between 
the islands — these islands once being wharves where the masur wood 
was loaded, the dried salmon, and the furs and skins. * * * Leaving 
Fort Norumbega with its paved ditches and evidences of extensive 
fisheries you can go down the Charles (the Norumbega River of other 
days) until you approach the site of the olden city on its banks. The 
terraces which rise above the walls are well worthy of inspection and 
are extremely interesting. They are sharply defined, and here and 
there very old trees grow out from their edges, having sprung from 
seeds that lodged there. The distance from the walls to the first terrace 
is quite enough to have given space for games, wrestling, or other pas- 
times; and as the Norsemen were exceedingly fond of swimming, per- 
forming wonderful feats of strength and endurance under water, these 
terraces might have afforded opportunity for an extended view up and 
down the river during such performances." 

" Thevet saw Norumbega in 1556 and described it as situated on the 
banks of 'one of the most beautiful rivers in all the world.' Wytfliet 
saw it in 1597, Douay in 1607, and Lescarbot in 1610. All quote the 
statement that ' to the north of Virginia is Norumbega, which is well 
known as a beautiful city and a great river.' " 

In 1659 David Ingram, an English sailor, found Norumbega. Sir 
Humphrey Gilbert, Capt. John Smith, and Champlain searched for it, 
but were unable to re-discover it.

and battled at adverse odds against the small boys of the town. Not- 
withstanding his eccentric nature he possessed a sturdy patriotism. It 
was of tough fibre, and stood out prominently when seeking to accom- 
plish a purpose. He lived in retirement in the house on Hubbard 
Street which he inherited from his forefathers, and in which stopped 
John Hancock and Samuel Adams while attending the first provincial 
congress in 1774. He was found dead one morning by the neighbors 
sitting in his chair. Through his persistent agitation and philanthropy 
America now rejoices in the possession of a handsome monument to her 
sons' martial pluck. It is situated on the left bank of the Concord 
River (looking toward the mouth), directly opposite to a tall granite 
shaft erected by Concord inhabitants in 1836 upon the right bank of the 
river, or where the British stood. The pedestal is of granite and the 
statue is seven feet high. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson's address, April 19, 1875, at the ceremonies of 
the dedication of the monument is as follows : " Fellow-Citizens! 
EBENEZER HUBBARD, a farmer who inherited land in this village 
on which the British troops committed depredations, and who had a 
deep interest in the history of the said town, erected many years ago a 
flag-staff on his ground, and never neglected to hoist the stars and 
stripes on the nineteenth of April and the fourth of July. It grieved 
him deeply that yonder monument, erected by the town in 1836, should 
have been built on the ground on which the enemy stood in the Concord 
fight, instead of on that which the Americans occupied; and he be- 
queathed in his will $1,000 to the town of Concord, on condition that a 
monument should be erected on the identical ground occupied by our 
minute men and militia on that day; and an additional sum of $600 on 
the condition that the town should build a foot-bridge across the river 
on the site where the old bridge stood in 1775. The late Mr. Stedman 
Buttrick [grandson of Major John Buttrick who commanded the Ameri- 
can ploughboy fighters at the battle] having given the necessary piece 
of land on the other side of the river, the town accepted the legacy of 
Mr. HUBBARD, built the bridge, and employed Daniel C. French to 
prepare a statue to be erected on the specified spot. Meanwhile the 
United States Congress gave to this town ten bronze cannon to furnish 
the artist with fit material to complete his work," etc. 

The handsome statue was erected, and added materially to the repu- 
tation of the sculptor, Daniel C. French, an inhabitant of Concord. On 
it is a verse of Ralph Waldo Emerson's, who is now sleeping the long 


slumber (near the grave of Nathaniel Hawthorne) on a hill in Sleepy 

Hollow Cemetery in Concord. The words are familiar to all patriots. 

By the rude bridge that arched the flood, 
Their flag tn April's breeze unfurled: 
Here nine the embattled farmers stood. 
And fired the shot lirard round the world. 

The "rude bridge," which was quite rustic, was torn down when 
THOMAS was about ten years of age. It was replaced by its counter- 
part, which gave way to another a short time ago. So intense was his 
interest to have his heart's desire fulfilled that at the State muster in 
Massachusetts in 1869 he invaded General Butler's headquarters and 
endeavored to enlist his support in its projection. Thus may the tourist 
not only see the fatal spot where British oppression was strangled and 
a new-born liberty cradled, but he may also see the standing testimonial 
of a HUBBARD who commemorated the imperishable event bv an 
enduring manifestation of his Americanism. 

Dear Creature: 

My tenderest wishes are that the fair Soverign of my Hopes 
and Fears be now as happy as the season looks gay and joyful: it is a 
most beautiful and charming hour! every favorable circumstance of 
Nature conspires to crown it with Honour and Delight. The happiest 
Period the various year can boast now hovers towards us in all the 
radient airs of genial Light, attendant on the approaching Sun. The 
youthful morning unveils her rosie blushes: and the faithful Day is so 
far risen that I have already visited a neighbouring Verdant Field 
where I have given it in charge to all the choicest Herbs and Flowers, 
by the ministry of Ten Thousand sun-beams which alite to paint their 
colours, or drink their juices, to offer up a sacrifice of pure Incens'e to 
the gracious Power who indulges us mortals so much Pleasure in his 
excellent Works. The Heavens are all serene; The clear air perfumed 
with the sweet odors of opening Flowers and spreading Blossoms of 
faithful Trees. 

The face of the earth smiles; everything seems pleased and all the 
creatures in good Humour; in a word, my Dear, my charming all, this 
once the whole creation looks like you. All these Beauties I severally 
admire in proportion of the Resemblance they bare to you; and none of 
the Pleasures errising from the contemplation of them shall I ever want 
while I may call you mine. This prerogative is the highest distinction my 
ambition aspires after. When what I now write comes to your hand, walk 
into your garden and imitate the pleasure I have now been enjoying. 


There view with curious eye the fair and elegant structure of your 
Tulips and Twenty more little Darling vegetables, for which I have no 
names, and the beautiful light of colours which hover over them: and 
assure yourself that there is less harmony in the nice arrangement of 
their lights and shades than there is in a sett of generous Passions, regu- 
lated by the Love of an ingenious and virtuous woman. Think withal 
what Improvements in Happiness we may hereafter help one another to 
make when with the sweets of nature and the nameless joys of Love we 
shall possess the superior Blessing of a Daily Intercourse with the great 
Original of Bliss, who amidst the Temporary Delight his goodness shall 
indulge us, will prepare us for a state of immortal youth and Pleasure 
in the fairest garden of his own planting in the Paradise above. To 
that happy Place my fair, my dearest Soul, we'll travel Hand in Hand. 
The virtuous joys of all our tenderest Hours shall shoot up into Divine 
Transports at the expectations of an eternal Possession of all the Good 
an infinite Benevolence has to give. The Duty of my station calls me 
off: I must forbare writing: My regards, &c. Martha, do'n't forget me: 
for as never other man was, intirely and by your own condescending 
choice, I am forever yours,

-At a town meeting 1667 [or 1687], 15 day of March-John Oilman by 
an order (an act of the towne) was empowered to petition to the Gen- 
eral Court for an enlargement of the bounds of the towne, & to pros-

"One Thousand Years of Hubbard History " is the title of a book now in press and to be published 
in New York. Though this takes the family back two centuries beyond the Norman conquest and 
to Norseland, what good is it? They are bound to trace to and can not trace beyond the original 
Mother Hubbard. 

The publication of the above editorial in the St. Louis Star Sayings 
led a well-known newspaper writer, a Hubbard descendant, to sharpen 
his pencil and write the following about what is probably the oldest 
nursery rhyme in existence. The publisher of this volume, in common 
with all other descendents of the name, duly bore his share of raillery 
about his maternal ancestry. He found it the best way to join in the 
rhyme in a jolly way. That seemed to take the edge off from his com- 
panions fun somewhat. He therefore feels at liberty to insert this bit 
( >f humor, according to those who do not appreciate the keen points and 
bright satire on all who would travesty the name the privilege of re- 
moving the pages from the book. 


Manifestly it would be abortive to present a genealogical history of 
the Hubbard family without recognizing the fact that the illustrious 
tribe had a maternal as well as a paternal progenitor. In fact, it would 
be worse than that, for while the fierce sea king, Hubba, thundered 
down the corridors of time for a short distance, and then slid off un- 
noticed into some of the by-ways of history that are only trodden by 
the tireless footsteps of antiquarians and such, the old lady who bore 
the full name Hubbard, from the first, has ambled along on the broad 
highway of public attention, quietly and quaintly, leading her dog, and 
making no disturbance. Hubba was prominent for a time. She is 
prominent for all time. Her history is briefly told in the books. To 
the world, more familiarly, it is repeated more often than that of many 
heroes and heroines who achieved more startling feats than she. Not 
even truthful George, the heroic child with the hatchet, is more often 
mentioned or better remembered than is Old Mother Hubbard. It is 
very unfortunate that we have no data to present of her lineage. Some 
sensitive relative, we understand, destroyed the records. She doubtless 
had parents, but who they were is not apparent. She had family ties, 
unquestionably, else the tribe of Hubbards would hardly be as numer- 
ous as it is. Of these family ties, however, tradition tells us nothing. 
After the manner of nearly all the chroniclers of antiquity who wrote 
contemporaneous history, those who wrote of her contented themselves 
with recording those salient facts in her life story which best illustrate 
the prominent and attractive traits of her character. 


From the meagre details of this most admirable woman's history, 
which arc all that remain to us, it is, however, alto-ether impossible to 
obtain a comprehensive idea of what she must have been, and of the 
influence which she unquestionably exerted on the people and the man- 
ners of her era. What that era was it is, unfortunately, impossible to 
say. The rude rhymes which perpetuate her noble deeds have been 
handed down from generation to generation, until looking backward, 
we arc utterly unable to imagine how remote was the period of her life. 
Certain allusions, as those to a cupboard, to a tailor, to linen, and the 
like, make it certain that some measure of civilization had been attained 
before she died, if, indeed, she can be said to have died in any true 
sense of the word. The unquestionable antiquity of her story, however, 
proves that that civilization must have been immature. This being 
demonstrated, it is easy for the careful student to see that she wa 
ordinary person, as, of course, she would not be, being a Hubbard. In 
the first place she was notable for being- old at the period when the 
historian's attention was first attracted to her. She was, in her youth, 
no social reformer or agitator, else she would have attracted notice 
ier. She never occupied a box at the opera, could not ride a bicycle, 
and was indifferent upon the subject of "tariff reform." Her placid, 
well-ordered life had proceeded, doubtless on conventional lines, so 
quietly and under such social discipline, that it was not until after her 
family had grown up and gone out to people the corners of the earth, as 
they have since done, that she became in any way notable. Of course, 
she had had a family. The existence of that family to-day is sufficient 
evidence of that fact, but, aside from their existence, the fact that she 
was Mother Hubbard is proof positive. A person can not be a mother 
without having progeny. When we first learn of her, however, she is 
g alone, save for one faithful retainer. 

Mrs. Hubbard had a dog. It was not merely that she was kin* 
animals generally in an era when cruelty to the lower orders of crea- 
tion was almost universal, but she had adopted this particular dog for 
her own. Doubtless her motherly bowels yearned for the little ones 
whom she had reared and who had gone their several ways after grow- 
ing into blooming womanhood and lusty manhood. A dog was not 
much, but he served as a solace to her desolate old age. The dog was 
hers. Whether pug, water-spaniel, or one of other aristocratic line 
history saith not. He was probably just plain dog. Upon him she lavished 
all the kindliness and tender affection which had made her house a nest 
of refuge to those numerous young Hubbards whom she had lost. She 
hunted for bones for him when her own larder was empty. She sought 
to array him in purple and Irish linen. She went, weeping, to provide 


him with proper sepulture when she believed him defunct. She would 
have done for him anything which lay in her power, and it was this 
patient, long-suffering - , never-tiring affection of her loving heart that 
not only educated the dog into the doing of remarkable stints, but 
caused the historian to immortalize her name by simply recording some 
few of her deeds. 

Such in brief was the character of the Mother of all the Hubbards. 
Slight and trivial as the records may seem, they are clear indications of 
some of the traits that have made the race notable. That these traits 
are hereditary no Hubbard can doubt, and there is none that can fail in 
filial, not to say grand-filial, respect for his great progenitress. 

Her simple and touching annals have inspired not only the historian 
but the poet and artist, and to close this volume without an appropriate 
mention of her well-rounded out life would manifest such a marked 
lack of fair play and gallantry towards the fair sex that coming genera- 
tions would feel injured beyond repair at such uncalled for and conspic- 
uous omission. 


THE ORDER OF THE CINCINNATI was founded by the Ameri- 
can and French officers at the Cantonments of the Continental Army on 
the Hudson River at the close of the Revolution in May, 1783. Thirteen 
State Societies were formed, and one in France. The eldest male lineal 
descendant only from one of these original officers is eligible to mem- 
bership. This keeps the membership list quite reduced in numbers, and 
somewhat impairs the enterprise of the Order, it now being only a little 
over 400 in point of numbers. The present General Officers are Hon. 
Robert Milligan McLane, of Maryland, Acting President-General; Hon. 
Asa Bird Gardiner, LL.D., of Rhode Island, Secretary-General; Mr. 
John Schuyler, of New York, Treasurer-General; Mr. Thomas Pinck- 
ney Lowndes, of South Carolina, Assistant Secretary-General; and Mr. 
Henry Thayer Drowne, of Rhode Island, Assistant Treasurer-General. 

THE AZTEC CLUB was formed in 1847 in the City of Mexico, and 
was originally composed of officers of the United States who served in 
the Mexican War, and who were actuated in associating themselves 
together by a worthy desire " to cherish the memories and keep alive 
the traditions that cluster about the names of those officers who took 
part in the Mexican War." Membership is confined to officers of the 
Army, Navy, and Marine Corps who served in the war or their blood 
relatives. Each primary member may nominate as his successor his 
son or a blood relative, who during the life of the primary member is 
known as associate-member, and on the death of the former is entitled, 


as his representative, to full membership. The headquarters of the or- 
ganization are in Washington, D. C. There are 235 members, which 
include the following officers: 

President, General John Porter Hatch, U. S. A., New York City; 
Vice-President and Treasurer, Colonel De Lancey Floyd-Jones, U. S. A., 
New York City; Secretary, General Horatio Gates Gibson, U. S. A., 
Washington, D. C; Assistant Secretary, Mark Burckle Hatch, Washing- 
ton, D. C. 

was the outgrowth of a sentiment born in a far-away State. July 4, 
1S76, some warm-blooded descendants of the Revolutionary Patriots in 
California were moved to organize themselves into a body termed 
" Sons of Revolutionary Sires." In 1889 this Society reorganized and 
took the name of Sons of the American Revolution to keep in line with 
various State Societies in the East which had then been formed and 
were bearing this title. These State societies formed a National Society 
in New York April 30, 1889, and were chartered in Connecticut in this 
same year. There are now besides the National Society in New York 
twenty-seven State societies and one in the District of Columbia, which 
is third in numbers, New York and Connecticut leading it, respectively, 
with Massachusetts fourth. Its membership is now nearly 5,000, and is 
constantly growing. 

The National Officers are: President-General, Gen. Horace Porter, 
New York; Vice-Presidents-General, Gen. J. C. Breckinridge, U. S. A.; 
Col. T. M. Anderson, U. S. A.; William R. Griffith, Maryland; Edwin S. 
Barrett, Massachusetts; John Whitehead, New Jersey; Secretary-Gen- 
eral, Franklin Murphy, New Jersey; Treasurer-General, C. W. Haskins, 
New York; Registrar-General, A. Howard Clark, District Columbia; 
Historian-General, Henry Hall, New York; Chaplain-General, Rt. Rev. 
C. E. Cheney, 111. 

THE SONS OF THE REVOLUTION came into existence in 
1S76 in New York City, and claim priority of inception. Their purposes 
are similar to those of the other society, viz.: " to keep alive among our- 
selves and our descendants the patriotic spirit of the men who, in mili- 
tary, naval, or civil service, by their acts or counsel, achieved American 
independence; to collect and secure for preservation the manuscript 
rolls, records, and other documents relating to the war of the Revolu- 
tion, and to promote intercourse and good feeling among iis members 
now and hereafter." Eligibility to membership is confined to male de- 
scendants, above the age of twenty-one years, from an ancestor who as 
either a military, naval, or marine officer, soldier, sailor, or marine, or 
official in the service of any one of the thirteen original colonies or 


States, or of the National Government, representing or composed of 
those colonies or States, assisted in establishing American independence 
during the war of the Revolution between the 19th day of April, 1775, 
when hostilities commenced, and the 19th day of April, 1783, when they 
were ordered to cease.* The general society of the " Sons of the Revo- 
lution" was organized by delegates from the then existing State socie- 
ties in 1890. There are now twenty-one State societies. Their enter- 
prise is not so marked as that of the other society, nor their membership 
nearly as large, but the personnel is equally as good. 

The General Officers are: General President, Ex-Go v. John Lee 
Carroll, Maryland; General Vice-President, Garrett D. W. Vroom, New 
Jersey; Second Gen. Vice-Pres., Col. John Screven, Galveston; General 
Treasurer, R. M. Cadwalader, Pennsylvania; Assistant Gen. Treas., 
Stephen Salisbury, Massachusetts; General Secretary, J. M. Montgom- 
ery, New York; Assistant General Secretary, Wm. H. Harris, Maryland; 
General Registrar, John Woolf, Jordan, Pa.; General Historian, T. B. 
M. Mason, U. S. N.; General Chaplain, Rev. Morgan Dix, D.D., New 

organized as a Society in the City of Washington, D. C, October 11, 
1890, their present headquarters. Their membership is reported by the 
Secretary-General to be about 7,000. State chapters exist in thirty-six 
States, presided over by regents. Any woman may be eligible for mem- 
bership who is of the age of eighteen years, and who is descended from 
an ancestor who, " with unfailing loyalty, rendered material aid to the 
cause of independence as a recognized patriot, as soldier or sailor, or as 
a civil officer in one of the several colonies or States, or of the United 
Colonies or States," provided that the applicant shall be acceptable to 
the society. Every application for membership must be endorsed by at 
least one member of the National Society, and is then submitted to the 
Registrars-General, who report on the question of eligibility to the 
Board of Management, and upon its approval the applicant is enrolled 
as a member. 

The officers of the National Society are: President-General, Mrs. 
Adlai E. Stevenson, Illinois; Vice-President-General (in charge of 
organization of chapters), Mrs. A. C. Geer, Washington, D. C; Vice- 
Presidents-General, Mrs. W. R. Beale, Mrs. F. W. Dickins, Miss Eugenia 
Washington, Mrs. A. Howard Clarke, Miss E. L. Dorsey, Mrs. Harry 
Heth, Mrs. R. Ogden Doremus, Mrs. J. S. T. Stranahan, Mrs. Schuyler

was organized August 20, 1890. The general society was organized in 
the city of New York September 9, 1891. Chapters exist in a large num- 
ber of States and others are being rapidly formed. Eligibility to mem- 
bership is restricted to " women who are lineal descendants of an ances- 
tor who was a military or naval or marine officer, soldier, sailor, or 
marine in actual service under the authority of any of the thirteen 
. colonies or States, or of the Continental Congress, and remained always 
loyal to such authority, or descendants of one who signed the Declara- 
tion of Independence, or of one who as a member of the Continental 
Congress or of the Congress of any of the colonies or States, or as an 
official appointed by or under the authority of any such representative 
bodies, actually assisted in the establishment of American independence 
by service rendered during the War of the Revolution, becoming thereby 
liable to conviction of treason against the Government of Great Britain, 
but remaining always loyal to the authority of the colonies or States." 

The officers of this society are as follows: President-General, Mrs. 
Edward Paulet Steers, No. 2076 Fifth Avenue, New York City; Curator- 
General, Mrs. Louise F. Rowe; Secretary-General, Mrs. D. Phcenix

title of " Founder-General " has been conferred on Mrs. Flora Adams 
Darling, to whom the society owes its creation.

stores about the vicinity of Boston that a bold yeomanry recognizing 
he portentious signs, had secreted for possible forthcoming emergen- 
des He sent out British officers disguised as countrymen to learn 
bdr wner aLts and to learn further the condition of the roads and 
the topography of the country. These officers visited tt orceste, Mass. 
The a ert citizens divined their objects and began preparations at once 
Cartdn Timothy Bigelow and Ensign, afterward Lieutenant, Hubbard 
win drilUng the minute men. Lieutenant Hubbard was a farmer, 
but had a Is" other business interests in the town of Worcester. In 
March ,775 the company of minute men were directed to tram half a 
davn each week and a payment of one shilling was allowed to each 
to this serv e a; d a penalty provided, equal in amount, tor absence. 
The company had me almost daily for months. When the weather 
pe'rmitteTthey paraded on the common or ^^^J^ 
storms of winter they were drilled in some hall. Under the mstn ction 
of Cant T mo hv Bigelow they had attained great proficiency in military 
science ano\vhen afterwards mustered at Cambridge received commen-

the Church. Another was instantly procured and the tidings 


The bell rang out the alarm, cannon were fired and messengers sent to 
every part of the town to collect the soldiery. As the news spread the 
implements of husbandry were thrown by in the field, and the citizens 
left their homes with no longer delay than to seize their arms. In a 
short time the minute men were paraded on the green, under Capt. 
Timothy Bigelow. After fervent prayer by the Rev. Mr. Maccarty, 
they took up the line of march. They were soon followed by as many 
of the train bands as could be gathered under Capt. Benjamin Flagg. 
On that day no men marched from the town of Worcester for Concord. 
Intelligence of the retreat of the enemy met them after they advanced, 
and they turned toward Boston. When Capt. Bigelow reached the 
ancient Howe Tavern in Sudbury he halted to rest his men. Capt. Ben- 
jamin Flagg, who had commenced his march an hour or two later, came 
up, and, insisting on pushing forward without loss of time, both officers 
moved on to Cambridge. The troops were there reorganized. Captain 
Bigelow was made Major in Col. Ward's Regiment, and Lieutenant 
Hubbard succeeded him to the captaincy. April 24 the company con- 
sisted of 59 men, all from Worcester. John Smith and William Gates 
were lieutenants. 

After the exciting events around Boston had passed and a lull had 
ensued, the autumn of '75 found a few active minds planning the bold 
expedition against Quebec, alike memorable for boldness of conception, 
chivalrous daring of execution and melancholy failure in its results. 

The object of the service or the destination of the troops were known 
only to the superior officers. It was understood that it would be attended 
with danger, labor and suffering. Hubbard, brave and energetic, did 
not shrink from peril or hardship in the cause to which he had devoted 
himself, and, at his own request, was appointed to the command of a 
company in the detachment of Arnold. While the troops halted at Fort 
Weston on the Kennebec, he wrote to his wife in terms worthy of a 
patriot martyr: " I know not if I shall ever see you again. The weather 
grows severe cold, and the woods, they say, are terrible to pass. But I 
do not value life or property, if I can secure liberty for my children." 
Captain Hubbard shared in the extreme sufferings of the march, and 
probably more than his proportion, as acting under a commission, among 
those who had no reverence for artificial distinctions beyond that yielded 
to the legitimate authority of courage and wisdom. 

On the 19th of September, 1775, they sailed from Newburyport, land- 
ing the next day near the present site of Augusta on the Kennebec. 
Then they made their way up that river and across the divide into the 
valley of the St. Lawrence. The march was toilsome in the extreme. 
Their baggage, ammunition and provisions, were conveyed in boats, 


which were forced up the rapid current with great labor, and had often 
to be dragged or carried past unnavigable rapids or across the water- 
sheds between the sources of one stream and those of another. On the 
march, Major Bigelow, in order to make out their route more clearly, by 
the view from its summit, climbed the high mountain which still bears 
his name in Northern Maine, near the head-waters of the Kennebec. It 
is a monument to this heroic townsman [Worcester] of ours, grander 
and more lasting than any ever reared by human hands. 

Arnold's little army at length arrived before Quebec, near the middle 
of November, having suffered terribly from cold, as well as from hunger 
and excessive labor, for the winter sets in early in that northern region. 
The town, besides its great natural strength of position and its formida- 
ble defensive works, had a garrison exceeding Arnold's force in num- 
bers. With admirable impudence he sent a flag of truce, demanding 
the surrender of the place. But the commander would neither sur- 
render nor come out to fight, and Arnold did not see his way to getting 
in. He had, moreover, only five rounds of ammunition for each man, 
and was therefore in no condition to maintain a siege, even if he had 
force enough to invest the town. So he moved up the river twenty 
miles or more to await the orders of Montgomery, who, in a campaign 
of extraordinary brilliancy, had made himself master of the Lake Cham- 
plain country, the Upper St. Lawrence and Montreal. On the 3d of 
December Montgomery arrived with three hundred men, some artillery 
and provisions, and what Arnold's men needed most, a supply of clothing 
suitable for the season, which was intensely cold. That patriot army, 
after their dreadful march through the Maine and Canadian forests, were 
barefooted and in rags. 

Montgomery, though not sanguine, thought there was a chance of 
success in attempting to storm the place in a night attack. On the 30th 
of December the attempt was made, one party, led by Montgomery in 
person, attacking the defences of the lower town from the southeast, 
and another, under Arnold, assaulting at the same time from the north- 
west. The fall of Montgomery at the head of his column by the first 
fire from the enemy put an end to the attack in that quarter. Arnold's 
command, with which were Major Bigelow, Captain Hubbard, and the 
Worcester men, had at first better success. Arnold was disabled by a 
severe wound in the leg. Capt. Jonas Hubbard was also wounded be- 
neath the walls, and refusing to be removed, died of exposure in the 
fierce snow-storm. Major Bigelow and some two hundred others, under 
the command of Colonel Christopher Greene of Rhode Island, carried 
the first battery, and penetrated so far into the town that their retreat 
was cut off and they were compelled to surrender. Sergeant Silas Wes- 



son was killed and Timothy Rice mortally wounded in this attack; both 
were Worcester men. Major Bigelow and the other soldiers from this 
town were made prisoners and held in captivity until November of the 
next year. 

The history of many families of New England is told in that of Cap- 
tain Hubbard. His ancestor, hardy and enterprising, went out from 
the cultivated country to redeem new tracts from the waste. The father, 
animated by a noble patriotism, exchanged the sickle for the sword, the 
peaceful pursuits of agriculture for the privations of military life, and 
died the death of a hero that his country and his posterity might never 
know the oppression of monarchial despotism.

Philadelphia boasts probably of the prettiest Quaker girls in .the 
world Twenty years or more ago there dwelt at the corner of Chestnu 

I a streets a certain dealer in cheese and batter by the name of 

Ephraim Pront. He had made a fortune in the trade and was widely 
respected His aged mother was one of those distinguished personages 
who take'their seats upon the platform in the meeting houses, and oc- 
casionally-say once in six months or so-have " a call to speak. His 
vff « an industrious body, as young looking as her own daughter 
As for that daughter, words can not describe her. Nature, in pity for 
the prejudice which doomed her to wear sad-hued garments all her We 
had showered upon her all the brilliant tints upon her palette. Friend 
Ephraim's daughter was fair to look upon. Perhaps she knew it, to 
she had a looking-glass, but not one word of flattery had she ever heard. 
So week after week, first day, found Bessy at meeting; second da,, 
busy with household affairs, while her mother supermtended the wash- 
ing: third day , ironing; fourth day, baking, and so on till the seven 
were recounted. . 

She was 24 -twenty-four and not married. Had you asked Friend 
Hannah Pront why, she would have said: " My daughter does not ye 
bale bread as I could wish, and I can not allow her to marry until that 
is well learned." Young men who saw Bessy at the meeting or in her 
ather's store were not so calmly indifferent. More than one Quaker 
yontn, with a pleasant appreciation of Bessy's beauty and thrifty com 
^deration of her father's wealth, were, like Barkis, ' willing. But on 
one of them did the paternal eye fall with favor. Ephraim _Pront and 
his wife Hannah had already selected a husband for their child That 
husband to be was one Peter Potter, a widower of 4°, who talked and 
occasionally preached, and owned three blocks of Arch street property, 
o •■ quares •' in the prance of the Philadelphia^ Bessy had not been 
consulted. Often she acquiesced in the maternal opinion that Friend 
Peter was a worthy man. And probably she would have acquiesced in 
^e opnTonthathl was the proper husband to select when the time 
ame but for one unlucky circumstance. About the middle o _Decenit , r 
just when Bessie's loaves were beginning to merit approval. Sehna Grief 
'was married. After passing meeting and going through the other cere 
monies, the new-made couple gave a housewarnimg, and thither, of 
course/went Bessy, Bessy's mother and father, and Friend Pete,. 

Thither also came a young man of the world's people, one Mr. John 
Hubbard, who wore a black coat, a pair of patent leather boots and a 
stovepipe hat, and who was regarded by the youthful Friends with feel- 


ings of mingled admiration and terror. Of course, there was neithei 
singing or dancing, but they played, the forfeits being generally kisses 
Mr. Hubbard enjoyed himself amazingly. He managed to kiss Bessy 
oftener than any one else, and that night walked home with her. Ques- 
tioned by her mother, Bessy answered: " I thought it but right to allow 
him lest he should think Friends proud." So maternal solicitude was 
put at rest, and few impressions were awakened by the fact that Mr. 
John Hubbard took an immense interest in butter and cheese, conversed 
with Friend Ephraim on those subjects with great animation when they 
encountered each other at that Friend's store, and managed to be invited 
home to tea because he really could not leave Friend Ephraim until he 
quite comprehended the advantages of the new patent churn. 

One evening Hannah cut the loaf, and smiling, turned to her daughter 
and said: " Bessy, thee makes bread as well as thy mother." That after- 
noon was one to be remembered. The time had come when Friend 
Peter Potter might be gratified. His wife was ready for him. A con- 
ference was held between the father and the anxious widower respecting 
Bessy's pecuniary prospects should her future spouse die first, and the 
courtship commenced. 

The three sat before the fire— Ephraim twiddling his thumbs, Hannah 
darning stockings, " the child," Bessy, knitting. Ephraim began: 

" Bessy." 

>l Yes, father." 

" Thee are fit to manage a house of thy own." 

" I think so, father." 

" In fact, it is time thee should marry.' 

•'Yes, father, I have been thinking so myself." 

"I am sorry to hear thee say that, my child," cried Hannah. "A 
young girl should not think of such a matter until suggested by her 
parent or some wise friend." 

Bessy looked down abashed. 

" Only last week a friend spoke to me of the matter." 

" What friend ? Good Sarah Rose, doubtless; she is ever for having 
women marry betimes." 

"No, mother, not Friend Rose." 

" Perhaps thy Aunt Eliza." ' 

'• No, mother." 

" Who was it, child ?" 

" Friend John Hubbard." 

" Friend — John Hubbard !" 

" Yes, mother. He spoke of thinking well of me and suggesting that 
our lives would be passed happily together." 


" Bessy, thee knows a female Friend may not marry a young man of 
the world's people. Christie Brown was read out of meeting for so 

" Yes, mother." 

" Well, child, since the time has come for thee to marry, thee will be 
glad to know that Friend Peter is anxious for a wife, and prefers thee." 

Bessy turned pale. 

" Friend Peter is worth a lot of money." 

" Yes, father." 

" Also, he is a Friend." 

"Yes, father." 

" Consequently thee had better marry him. It is now time for thee 
to retire. Good-night, Bessy." 

" Good-night," said Bessy, with a trembling lip. 

So it was settled. It never entered into any one's heart that Bessy 
was not used tenderly. And the days hurried on, one after the other, 
toward the first day, on which the twain were to " pass meeting" for the 
first time, preparatory to the solemnization of their nuptials. It was 
Friday. All the week Bessy had been a little sad, not quite herself. 
The extremely fine fabric of her muslin dress did not seem to interest 
her as it should have done. At 2 she came to her mother. " I have 
some little business to attend to in Fairmount," she said. " And I have 
been thinking it would be a pleasant thing if Friend Peter could drive 
me there in his leathern conveyance." So Friend Peter was summoned. 
The light wagon was brought out, and away they drove. Peter dis- 
coursed volubly. Bessy answered quietly. At last the wire bridge was 
crossed and Fairmount lay before them. When this was in sight Bessy 

"Friend Peter, thee sees that white building with white shutters?" 

" Aye, verily do I." 

" Thee will oblige me by taking this package and deliver it to Friend 
Ann, with my good wishes. Meanwhile I will hold the reins; I do not 
wish to alight." 

Friend Peter obediently took the package and departed. He stayed 
ten minutes. When he returned, horse, wagon, and lady love were 
gone. He rushed about distractedly. No one had seen anything. Peter 
waddled home. They were not there. The Quaker mother said: 

" Be not alarmed; they will return soon." 

But the day passed with no sign. So did Saturday. At 10 o'clock 
Saturday evening a noise of wheels was heard. Rushing out they 
found the wagon, a mulatto boy, and a note, but no Bessy. In terrible 
anxiety they tore open the missive. It was as follows: 



Dear Parents and Respected Friend Peter: 

I hope you have not been alarmed. I am well. Mother knows, I presume, that it would not be 
easy to marry if one felt no call to do so. I had no call to be united to Friend Peter. I had a call to 
marry John. There is no need of the ceremony of passing meeting among world's people, so I am 
already Friend Hubbard. 

Suggest to Friend Peter the worthy Ann Billings as a wife. She is a better housewife than I. And 

let me know soon that I may be forgiven, for I am in grief on account of your alarm and annoyance. 

Your loving daughter, 

Bessie Hubbard. 

Friend Ephraim twisted his thumbs, Friend Hannah folded her hands, 
Friend Peter opened his eyes and mouth and shook his head slowly. At 
length Hannah said: 

"Call my mother, Ephraim." 

Ephraim brought the old lady down stairs. Nobody said a word — 
not one. They gave her the note. She read, folded it, put her spec- 
tacles on the table and sat quiet — fifteen minutes, half an hour, an hour 
Then she arose and said: 

" I have a call to speak. When the prodigal son returned the father 
killed the fatted calf. Bessy is a naughty child; but verily she deserves 

And Bessy was forgiven. Two weeks later Peter married Widow 
Ann, and Mr. and Mrs. John Hubbard were guests at the wedding — 
Yankee Blade.

JAMES HUBBARD was born in Sussex County, Delaware, near the 
Maryland line, March 27, 17S5, and died at Mapleton, Marion County, 
Ind., April 29, 1S91, aged 106 years, 1 month and 2 days. His father, 
John Hubbard, was born in 1748 and died in Dearborn County, near 
Wellington, Indiana, in 1848, aged 100 years. His grandfather died at 
the age of 105 years. His sister, Mrs. William Glenn of Cincinnati, 
< >hio, died aged 100 years. Several others in the family have lived to 
ver 90. 

When JAMES HUBBARD* was five years of age his father removed 
from Delaware to Orange County, North Carolina, where JAMES mar- 
ried in 1809 Mary Thomas (b Nov 28, 178S, d Apl 1, 1865"). Living in 
North Carolina but a short period, the young couple removed to Leb- 
anon, Ohio, and in 181 1 to Dearborn County (then Indiana Territory), 
Indiana, where his father had entered land. In 1S33 he sold his posses- 
sions and took up a quarter section (160 acres) in Marion County, then 
an unbroken wilderness, wh ere he lived the balance of his life. During

the war of 1812 he was employed as a ranger or scout m Capt. William 
Spencer's Co., Col. Dill's command. For these services he received a 
pension of $96 per annum from our grateful government, commencing 
in 1884, seventy years after the service was rendered. At the age of S3 
he became blind from a painful cataract that formed in both eyes. This 
interrupted his reading and so annoyed him that he determined at 87 to 
have an operation, which, happily, was successful, and he enjoyed again 
reading his books and newspapers. At 100 years he had teeth enough 
to chew his food, worked daily in the garden digging potatoes, and made a 
new garden gate. For a little variation he would step over to see his 
son Richard, who lived four miles away. 

The old gentleman was an ardent Republican, and never faltered in 
his allegiance from the party's birth to his death; he never used tobacco, 
and had stiff opinions on temperance matters. Feeling a little unwell 
one day after passing the centenary mark, the doctor was sent for, to 
whom he paid no attention whatever when questioned about his condi- 
tion, answering his queries with remarks about what the party should 
do upon the temperance question. Though ardent in politics he could 
never be induced to hold office, and used a couplet from Shakespeare to 
temper the quality of his refusal: 

Give me a staff of honor for mine age, 
But not a scepter to control the world. 

JAMES HUBBARD was an exemplary member of the Methodist 
Church, joining it in 1866, and was buried by its rites, Rev. J. G. Chaffee 
officiating. His text was: " Cast me not off in the time of old age; for- 
sake me not when my strength faileth." The pall-bearers were mem- 
bers of the Tippecanoe Club, seven in number, of which he was the old- 
est member, and all were past three score and ten. In 1885 he had living 
five children, forty-nine grandchildren, seventy-four great-grandchildren, 
and ten great-great-grandchildren. A picture showing five of the gen- 
erations together once appeared in one of the Indiana papers. JAMES 
HUBBARD and Nancy Thomas had ten children. Solomon, the oldest, 
removed to Davis County, Iowa; Richard remained at Mapleton, Ind.; 
Charles went to Lincoln, Neb.; Elizabeth married Thomas Record of 

Indianapolis; Jane m Berry of Mapleton; James Robinson, the 

youngest, was born May 18, 1829, and died Aug 31, 1864. He was a 
member of Co. D, 3d Regt. Missouri Cavalry, and married March 5, 1S54, 
Mary C. Emerson of Pike County, Missouri, and had a son, b Sep 1, 
1858, dy; Susie, b Nov 21, 1S60, m W. H. Myers of Louisville, Lincoln 
County, Mo; and Kate, b Oct 5, 1864. 

The following from an Indianapolis paper about him is so full of his- 
torical knowledge that it is herewith reproduced: 



When JAMES HUBBARD, who died at his 
home near this city Wednesday night, was burn, 
■ III was king of England. Louis XVI and 
Marie Antoinette still had their heads on their 
shoulders, ana carried the aforesaid heads very 
high at Versailles and the Elysee. The declaration 
of independence was only nine years old; the 
French revolution was still in the womb of the 
future. The thirteen feeble commonwealths which 
had but just wrested independence from George III. 
were loosely bound by the rope of sand known as 
the •' Articles of Confederation." The Continental 
Congress, rapidly becoming an object of popular 
contempt and derision, was making, at long inter- 
vals, impotent decrees at New York. Indiana was 
a practically unknown and unexplored part i f the 
vast territory of Virginia. The organization of the 
Northwest territory was two years distant. Four 
years were to pass before the Constitution of the 
United States would be framed. George Wash- 
ington was living the life of a Virginia planter at 
Mt. Vernon. Pitt and Fox were the ruling spirits in 
England. Edmund Burke had but just completed 
his great parliamentary career. Ireland a 
parliament of her own and Flood and Grattan were 
making College Green classic with their wit and 
their eloquence. Napoleon Bonaparte was a young 
lieutenant of artillery at Valence. Andrew Jackson 
was sowing wild oats in North Carolina. Von 
Moltke and. William I. were not yet born. 

It was a wonderful century which was spanned 
by JAMES HUBBARD'S life. He saw the rise 
and fall of dynasres; the dawn of republicanism in 
the western world and its extension over a large 
share of the fairest part of the earth's surface; he 
saw half a dozen reconstructions of the map of 
Europe; he saw the downfall of the ancient regime 
in France, the great revolution, the advent of the 
man on horseback in the person of Napoleon, a 
continent drenched in blood to quench his am- 
bition, Waterloo, St. Helena, Louis XVIII, Charles 
X. Louis Philippe, 184S, the republic, Louis Napo- 
leon, the empire, Sedan, the commune, the republic. 
He saw England transformed by a peaceful revo- 
lution from a government by kings into a govern- 
ment by the people. He saw the Irish parliament 
wiped out and almost a hundred years of futile 
struggle for its restoration. He was ten years old 
when Warren Hastings was acquitted of high 
crimes and misdemeanors, and twenty years old 
when Nelson fell at Trafalgar. He saw the ex- 
tinction of Poland, the ancient Chinese wall partly 
battered down by the western powers, the admis- 
sion of Japan into the great family of civilized na- 
tions, the re-creation of Italy, the unification of 
Germany, the dismemberment of Turkey, Spain a 
republic- for a day— and once again the despair of 

Europe. He was three years old when the first 
permanent English settlement was made in Aus- 
tralia, and he lived to see the commonwealths of 
that great continent united in a federation destined 
to play an important part in the drama of human- 
ity. He saw one after another of the Spanish 
American states throw off their allegiance to the 
parent country, and when he died there was not a 
crowned head in all the western hemisphere. 

In this country what marvelous transformations 
did he witness! When he was born there were four 
millions of people in the United States; he died 
leaving sixty-five millions. He found thirteen 
states; he left forly-tvvo. The largest town in the 
country had less than 20.000 inhabitants when he 
first opened his eyes; when he finally closed them 
there were twenty-eight cities of over 100,000 in- 
habitants each, and three of over a million. He 
was eighteen when Jefferson added the magnificent 
domain of Louisiana to the national territory; he 
was thirty when Jackson prevailed at New Orleans 
and Wellington at Waterloo. He was a middle- 
aged man when Andrew Jackson suppressed the 
nullitiers; he was six years beyond the allotted 
three score and ten when Ft. Sumter was tired 
upon; he was four score when Grant received Lee's 
sword at Appomattox! 

But JAMES HUBBARD saw more wonderful 
things during his lifetime than the birth of nations, 
the creation of dynasties, the fall of thrones. He 
saw the whole face of civilization changed. He 
saw a complete revolution in the industrial sys- 
tems of the world. He saw the passing away of an 
old social order and the birth of a new one. He 
saw the application to a myriad of practical uses of 
great natural forces whose potentialities had been 
unsuspected by all the generations of man from the 
beginning The lucifer match, illuminating gas, 
the sewing machine, the reaper and mower, the 
cotton gin, the steamship, the railway, the tele- 
graph, the printing press, the telephone, the elec- 
tric light, the phonograph— indeed almost all of the 
most familiar and useful agencies of our modern 
civilization had not been dreamed of when JAMES 
HUBBARD was born, and he was approaching the 
century limit when some of the most important 
among them were introduced. The world which 
this old man left the other day differed more widely 
in all the features of material civilization from the 
world as he found it than did that world from the 
world of Caesar and Alexander. Indeed, it would 
be hard to recognize this jolly old planet of ours 
as the same one that was gayly whirling through 
space on March 27, 1785, when J AMES HUBBARD 
dropped down upon it from the realm of mystery 
for a little sojourn of one hundred and six years. 


SAMUEL HUBBARD and his wife, Lucy Wheeler, were born in 
Massachusetts. They had a son, Simon S., who was born in Paris, N.Y., 
Apl 30, 1800. He married in New York State Jan 29, 1893, Eunice 
Sterns, b Oct 7, 1804, at Leyden, Mass., dau Charles and Sarah (Xorris) 
Sterns. In the Spring- of 1834 they migrated to Ohio, via Buffalo, Sim< »n 
driving the team while the family traveled by boat upon the canal, the 
distance altogether amounting to 380 miles. They settled May 2, 1834, 
in a dense forest (now Windsor, Ohio), but shortly removed to Harts 
Grove, the present homestead of the family. Children — Albert S. (b 
May 3, 1824, m Nov 6, 1845, Clementine Roff, d 1S68, and had E. C, 
Emma, Jennie and Frank), N orris S. (b Apl 14, 1826, m Nov 5, 1845, 
Marinda Olin and had Lucy, George, Edgar, Ernest, William, Lyman, 
Simon, Albert, Elgiva, and Mary), Caroline (b Sep 13, 1828,111 Oct 14, 
1849, Alonzo Olin, and had Ella, Julia, Orrin, Eunice, Ward, Elgiva, and 
Clara), George A. (b Jan 15, i83i,m Oct 24, 1852, Clarissa Sybrant and 
had R. Schuyler, Attrissa, Vinton, Lyle, George, Arthur and Pearl), 
Julia M. (b Mch 12, 1833, 111 July 26, 1855, Samuel Loomis, and had 
William, Nellie, Maud and Lula), Simon S. (b June 23, 1835, m 1861 (1) 
Mary Hathaway, and Mch 9, 1882, (2) May Soden and had Devere), 
Arthur J. (see following), Elgiva £. (b Jan 26, 1841, m Aug 29, 1S60, 
George Wyman aud had Fred, Inez, Earl and Ree), Elvira S. (b Feb 
28, 1844, m C. J. Johnson and had Lula and Caspen), and Edgar R. (b July 
21, 1846, d July 7, 185 1). 

ARTHUR J. HUBBARD, seventh child of the ten children born to 
Simon S. and Eunice F. (Stearns) Hubbard, was born at Hart's Grove, 

Ashtabula County, Ohio, Jan 17, 1839. He 
removed to Iowa in 1S61 and in August, 
1862, enlisted in the 40th Iowa Vols and 
served with the regiment eighteen months. 
He was then promoted 1st Lieutenant and 
Regimental Quartermaster and served with 
the 1 6th Kentucky Cavalry until the end 
; of the war, when he returned to Pennsyl- 
■ vania and at Bradford, Pa., built the first 
E oil refinery in the town, which he eventu- 
£ ally sold to the Standard Oil Co., which 
has employed Mr. HUBBARD for the 
past fifteen years as its manager in North- 
western Ohio and a part of Indiana and 
Arthur J. hubbard. Michigan, with headquarters at Toledo. 

Mr. HUBBARD married in October, 1859, Eliza N. Wade and had 
Nellie M., Arthur Devere and Nettie D. 




GEORGE DAVID READ HUBBARD, second son of Colman 
Smith and Mary Platts (Read) Hubbard, and eighth in descent from 

George Hubbard of Middletown, Ct, 
whose genealogical data is given upon 
page 296 of this volume, is a firm con- 
vert to the doctrine that advertising 
pays. He has tried it often and has 
never yet been disappointed. " It has 
great merit," he says, "and generally 
brings quick returns." Late in Decem- 
ber, 1883, Mr. HUBBARD had occasion 
to advertise in a New Haven paper for 
an office boy, in connection with the 
Elm City Printers' Warehouse, of which 
he was proprietor. He specified that 
the boy must be neat and come welt 
recommended. Within a few days, on 
January 4, 1884, his charming wife pre- 
sented him with a handsome cherub weighing eleven pounds. The 
; paper very promptly commented on the coincidence as showing 
the great value of advertising, and numerous newspaper friends from 
Boston to San Francisco added their little jokes. This much-advertised 
boy was named Carlt,on Spencer, and with his brother, Nelson 
Eugene, make a bright pair of genuine New England Young Ameri- 
cans. Mr. HUBBARD was a student at the Collegiate and Commer- 
cial Institute up to 1875 and from there to the National Business Col- 
lege, both of New Haven, Ct. In 18S2 he married Mrs. S. Maria 
Hawkes, an estimable lady of Springfield, Mass. After disposing of his 
business in Ne
