Migration of the Hubbly family
A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Jacob Hubble arrived in Philadelphia in 1825; J.G. Hubbell arrived in San Francisco in 1850 along with a Miss M. Hubbell.
