Migration of the Bubba family
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Bubba or a variant listed above: Christopher Bub who arrived in Philadelphia in 1738 and Peter Bub who arrived in Texas in 1847.
