Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Hubblay include Hubble, Hubel, Hubell, Hubbold, Hubbald, Hubball and others.

Migration of the Hubblay family
Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Hubblay were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Jacob Hubble arrived in Philadelphia in 1825; J.G. Hubbell arrived in San Francisco in 1850 along with a Miss M. Hubbell.
