      Compiled by EDWARD WARREN DAY.
      A HUBBARD DESCENDANT.

      JAMES HUBBARD, (?) son of James and Naomi (Cocke) Hubbard,(*)
      was born in 1609 in Suffolk County (probably Mendlesham), England.
      He may have been the James who sailed from London May 21, 1635,
      on the barque Mathew; Richard Goodladd, master, with his wife Sar a h
      (Ives) Hubbard, nephew (?) Richard, children Sarah, James, and
      perhaps others. He settled in Watertown, Mass., and died there in
      January, 1639. (His widow married William Hamlet afterward.)
      Children--JAMES, SARAH, THOMAS, and others, names unknown
      (see following).
      JAMES, the eldest (supposed) son, was born in England in 1631, and
      died in Cambridge, Mass., August 28, 1693. After his father's dea t h
      he(+) removed to Cambridge, Mass., and Sep 29, 1659, married Sarah
      Winship. June 17, 1662, she bore him a daughter, SARAH (m Nicholas
      Bowes of Cambridge, Mass., June 26, 1684, and d Jan 26, 1688.
      Bowes was b in 1656 and d in Boston in 1721, after being m to (1)
      Sarah Hubbard (2), Dorcas Champney, and (3) Martha Remington).
      She then bore him Oct 20, 1665, MARY (m Jason Russel May 27,
      1684, and had Hubbard Russel, b 1685, d June 4, 1726, who m and
      had children), and died in childbed Oct 22, 1665. JAMES was made
      freeman May 23, 1666, and was one of Cambridge's tythingmen in
      1679; he also served in the King Philip Indian War in Capt. Natha n iel
      Davenport's Company; and Jan 8, 1688, he married Hannah, daughter
      of Miles Ives, of Watertown, Mass., who after his death became his
      executor and residuary legatee. She died childless, but was a fai t hful
      mother to his stepchildren. The inscription upon her monument i n t he
      parish church yard at Cambridge adjoining Harvard University grou n ds
      reads:

      Here lyes burled Hannah Hubert.
      the loving wife of James Hubert, a tender and loving mothe r t o his
      children;
      careful of their souls and bodies,
      loving and faithful, diligent and prudent.
      who departed this life in sweet peace the 21th day of
      November, 1600.

      (*)James and Naoml (Cocke) Hubbard, of Mendelsham, Suffolk,
      England, were the parents of ten
      children. Benjamin, James, Rachel, and Samuel came to America, b u t
      probably none of the others.
      Thomas, the eldest son, was born in 1604, and with his wife Esth e r
      lived in Freeman Lane, near
      Horsley, down in Southwark, London. Sarah, the eldest daughter,
      married John Jaokson, and lived
      in Yarmouth, Norfolk. She was born in 1593, and had a son Robert,
      who served four years under
      Oliver Cromwell. Rachel married John Brandish, of Ipswioh, Suffo l k,
      England, and came to New
      England in 1688. They lived in Salem, Mass, Wetherafield, and
      Fairfield, Ct., and had children Mary
      (b in Ipswioh, Eng., in 1628, and m Francis Purdy, of Fairfiel d , Ct.).
      John (b in Salem, Mass., in 1633,
      and lived awbile in Fairfield and then removed to Flushing. New
      Netherlands), Bethla (b in Wethersfield,
      Ct, in 1637, in Timothy Knapp, of Greenwich, near Stamford. Ct.),
      and a posthumous son (b in
      1639 in Wethersfield). Rachel (Hubbard) Brandish, after the dea t h of
      her husband, married Anthony
      Wilson, of Fairfield, Ct. The names of the other four ohildre n o f James
      are unknown.

      (+)ilis own and wife's monument are yet standing in the old Camb r idge
      parish ohurchyard. This
      church was established in 1636. The monuments are of think sta t e and
      have withstood time's elemonts
      remarkably well, the inscriptions being quite legible.
      SARAH was born in England, and married at Billerica, Oct 13, 1657,
      Samuel Champney, of Cambridge, Mass. He was a representative from
      there in-1686, 1689 and 1692. Children--SAMUEL, SARAH, MARY,
      ESTHER, SAMUEL, JOSEPH, RICHARD and DANIEL.

      THOMAS was born in Watertown, Mass., August 10, 1638. Nothing
      positively known of him. According to Milton (Church Records of
      Cambridge, Mass.) he went to Wethersfield, Ct. Milton says: "James
      Hubbard, Sarah Hubbard, now Champney, admitted into fellowship of
      the church; THOMAS HUBBARD now joined to the Church of
      Wethersfield."

      SAMUEL HUBBARD, youngest son of James and Naomi (Cocke)
      Hubbard, was born in Mendlesham (a market town about eighty miles
      northeast of London), Suffolk County, in 1610. He arrived in Sale m ,
      Mass., in October, 1633, and probably came in the ship James, Gra n t,
      master, which left Gravesend, England, late in August, 1633, an d a rrived
      in Massachusetts Bay October 10, 1633. He says in his Diary,(* ) " I was
      born of good parents. My Mother brought me up in the fear of th e L ord,
      in Mendlesham, in catechiseing me and hearing choice ministers, " & c.
      March 4, 1634-5, he was admitted a freeman, and shortly moved to
      Watertown, Mass., where he joined the church "by giving accoun t o f my
      faith." This same year he went to Dorchester (Windsor), Ct., wi t h the
      overland migrators. He was married there by Mr. [Roger?] Ludlow to
      Tacy Cooper, who was born in England in 1608 and came to
      Dorchester, Mass., June 9, 1634, and to Dorchester (Windsor), Ct . , in
      1635. She had brothers Robert, of Yarmouth, Norfolk, and John of
      London, Eng. Robert returned to England from America in 1644.
      SAMUEL HUBBARD went to Wethersfield, Ct., in 1637, and May 10,
      1639, removed to Springfield, Mass., which he left for Fairfiel d , Ct., in
      1647, though staying there but a short time on account of church
      disagreements. SAMUEL was now with his wife imbibing freely and
      preaching ardently the doctrines of Anabaptism. He says in his di a ry:
      "God having enlightened both (but mostly my wife) into his holy
      ordinance of baptising only of visible believers, and being ver y z ealous
      for it, she was mostly struck at, and answered two terms publicl y , where
      I was said to be as bad as she, and sore threatened with imprison m ent to
      Hartford jail, if not to renounce it or to remove: that scriptu r e came into
      our minds: "If they persecute you in one place flee to another; " a nd so we
      did 2 day of October, 1648. We went for Rhode Island and
      (*)Copious notes were made from this diary by Dr. Issao Backus, a
      Baptist historian of about 1777,
      These notes are now possessed by Ray Greene Huling, of New
      Bedford. Masa, though the original
      diary and other valuable manuscripts of Samuel Hubbard disappear e d
      about 1852. There are living
      descendants of this Samuel Hubbard through Bethiah Hubbard and
      Joseph Clarke of various names.
      but none of the name of Hubbard.
      arrived there the 12 day. I and my wife upon our manifestatio n o f our
      faith were baptised by brother Joseph Clarke, 3 day of November,
      1648."

      SAMUEL HUBBARD spent the remainder of his life in and about
      Newport, or "Mayford," as he termed it. He was a zealous Baptis t a nd
      public religous disputant. For twenty-three years he belonged t o t he First
      Baptist Church of Newport, which sent him August 7, 1651, to Bost o n
      "to visit the bretherin who was imprisoned in Boston jayl for wit n essing
      the truth of baptising believers only, viz: Brothers John Clark e , Obadiah
      Holmes, and John Crandall." In 1657 he went with Holmes on a
      preaching tour on Long Island. In 1664 he was appointed General
      Solicitor of the Colony. April 7, 1668, he went to Boston with Jo s eph
      Torrey and William Hiscox "to publicly dispute with those baptised
      there." December 23, 1671, with his wife, one daughter, and fou r o ther
      persons he formed the first Seventh Day Baptist Church in Americ a . In
      July, 1668, he wrote a letter to his cousin John Smith, of London,
      detailing his worldly possessions "through God's great mercy. " I n 1675 in
      his diary he refers to a "testament of my grandfather Cocke's, pr i nted in
      1549, which he [Cocke] hid in his bed straw lest it should be fou n d and
      burned in Queen Mary's days." In 1676 he corresponded with Dr.
      Edward Stennett, Pastor of the Seventh Day Baptist Church in Bell
      Lane, London. John Thornton and Roger Williams of Rhode Island, a n d
      Governor Leete of Connecticut were his friends. He died between 1 6 88
      and 1692, and his wife after 1697, but no traces of their buria l p laces
      have been found. Children--NAOMI (b Nov 18, 1637, at Wethersfield,
