Migration of the Chubbs family to the New World and Oceana
To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England
went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Chubbs family emigrate to 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.
