The surname Hubarte is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England
with the Norman Conquest
of 1066. Hubarte is a name that comes from the Norman personal name
Hildebert, which is composed of the Germanic elements hild, which meant battle or strife, and berht, which meant bright or famous. The Norman Conquerors imported a vast number of Norman French personal names into England
, which largely replaced traditional Old English personal names among the upper and middle classes.

Migration of the Hubarte family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England
, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Hubartes were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Benjamin and Alice Hubbard, who came to Charlestown, MA in 1633; Ann Hubbard, who came to Dedham, MA in 1638; Benjamin Hubbard, who arrived in Charlestown, MA in 1633.
