An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016
The surname Tubb was first found in Cornwall
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor of Trengoff. Cornwall
was a land set apart, a land of mystique and quaint customs, more strongly related to Brittany
than to England
. It was not until the 10th century that they submitted to the Saxon rule of England. Since then, their influence has moved east into Devon
The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Tubb has been spelled many different ways, including Tubb, Tub, Tubby, Tubman and others.

Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland.
