OTHER RELATED STUBBS FAMILIES
Whilst there would appear to be confusion on the spelling of the surname, it is to be noted that there was a Robert Stubbs, labourer, at Greetham in the Military Survey of 1522, a bill man and one of the young men and poor of the parish. In subsequent 17th century handwriting, the ST of Stubbs may simply have appeared as a fancy T.
[STUB591] Robert Tubes of Stretton married (by licence, at Barrowden, 19th May 1629) [FORR592] Elianor Forrest, of Exton. (Their marriage licence gave their names as Robert Tubbs, of Stretton, and Ellinor Forret, maiden of Exton.)
