Allied Family Topic HU

 HU   Robert Hubbard (c.1600-c.1663)
Although I am not a descendant of Robert Hubbard, some of his descendants married into my family. Consequently, I have devoted Allied Family Topic HU to his family.

Robert Hubbard, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Robert Hubbard might describe his life as follows.

Married likely in England and in the Colony by 1645, I was the ancestor of the Hubbards of York County. I served on the very prestigious Council of State from 1649 to 1654.
During my lifetime, I accumulated 1,000s of acres of land in Gloucester and Westmoreland counties.
Although no will for me remains, I was likely the father John Hubbard who married Katherine Bennett by 1650, and of Robert and Matthew who witnessed a deed for Nicholas Brooke in York County in 1649. 

Hubbard land patents
In 1654 Robert received a grant of 300 acres on the north side of the York River in Gloucester County and 1,600 acres on the south side of the Potomac.  With Maj. William Lewis he got 2,000 acres in Westmoreland County on the Potomac and, in his own name, another 500 acres nearby on Sandy Point,  and added another 500 acres in Westmoreland County in 1654. 
With Robert Wolfe in 1663, he received 533 acres in Warwick County.  A patent issued 9 Feb. 1663/4 referred to land of Robert Hubbard, deceased.
