Jub History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Jub family

The surname Jub was first found in Cornwall where as a forename Jop serviens Osulf was listed in the Pipe Rolls of 1185. A few years later, again as a forename, Joppe filius Hardekin was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Lincolnshire in 1199, Jubbe de Donerwiz was found in Suffolk in 1275, and Job Molendinar was found in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex in 1296. [1]

The first entry as a surname was Walter Jobbe who was found in the Subsidy Rolls for Worcestershire in 1275, followed by Eudo le Jope in the Subsidy Rolls for Surrey in 1290. In Sussex, William Jopes was listed in the Subsidy Rolls there in 1296 as was Richard Joup, Joop in the same rolls for 1327 and 1332. [1]

One source claims the name is "an old surname in Yorkshire. It is the northern English form of Job. In the reign of Edward Langshanks (1273) the name is represented as Jubbe in the wapentake of Osgoldcross. " [2]

"Jupp is a Surrey as well as a Sussex name. The name of Joop occurred in the parish of Clapham in the reign of Henry IV. (D.). Just as Joop in this part of England has been transformed into Jupp, so Joop and Joope anciently in Wiltshire have been transformed into the modern Jupe." [3]

The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 included: Elyas Jubbe in Suffolk; and Warin Jubbe in Yorkshire. The Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 listed Johannes Jubbe and Ricardus Jubbe. [4]

Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Jub or a variant listed above:
