Migration of the Chubbes family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Chubbess to arrive in North America: 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.
