Where did the English Hubbard family come from? What is the English Hubbard family crest and coat of arms? When did the Hubbard family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Hubbard family history?

The surname Hubbard is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. Hubbard is a name that comes from the Norman personal name Hildebert, which is composed of the Germanic elements hild, which meant battle or strife, and berht, which meant bright or famous. The Norman Conquerors imported a vast number of Norman French personal names into England, which largely replaced traditional Old English personal names among the upper and middle classes.


A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Hubert, Hubbert, Hubbard and others.

First found in Cheshire, England but before their arrival in England, the family descended from Roger and/or Ralph Hubert, who were listed in the Magni Rotuli Scaccarii Normanniae (1180.) [1]

Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Hubbard or a variant listed above:
