Migration of the Chubs family to the New World and Oceana
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 Chubs 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.
