Migration of the Choub family to the New World and Oceana
Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Choub or a variant listed above: Captain Pasco Chubb, was Commandant of Pemaquid in 1696. He came under criticism for surrendering the Fort without a shot fired. He was then briefly held in prison for treason but was released. Captain Pasco and his family moved to Andover where they were all killed by Indians in 1698. Thomas Chubb was born in Somersetshire, England
, and arrived in the New World in 1635.
