Lub History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Lub family

The surname Lub was first found in Lincolnshire where Robert de Lubyck was the first on record in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1272. The same rolls included Bernard de Lubic in Yorkshire. [1] [2]

However, we must look to Norfolk for most of the family's records and their rise to power. Here we found Hellbrand de Lubeck recorded there 14 Edward I (during the fourteenth year of King Edward I's reign.) [3]

Later Richard Lubbock was Sheriff of Norwich in 1714 and William Lubbock was Rector of Lamms in 1738. [3]

The market-town and parish of North Walsham was home to the clothier John Lubbock (1669-1731), the progenitor of the famous Lubbocks which includes six barons, an American Texas Ranger, two famous muscians and at least three famous cricketers. "In the year 1600, nearly the whole of this town was destroyed by a fire, which, although it continued but three hours, consumed property of the value of £20,000." [4]
