Jubb History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Jubb family

The surname Jubb 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]

Jubb Spelling Variations

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Jubb family name include Jubb, Jubbe, Jub, Juppe, Jopp, Jupp, Job, Jobson and others.

Early Notables of the Jubb family (pre 1700)

Holland, and contained an Ionic portico with a pediment subsequently filled with sculpture by John Bacon, R. A.
