Migration of the Chubbe family to the New World and Oceana
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England
, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Chubbes to arrive on North American shores: 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.
