Hubballs of the Severn River Valley of England

The map below is a small, cropped section of a full map of Shropshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire counties, England showing parish boundaries and the location of Hubball families from 1500 to 1799.  See the link below for access to the full map and for definition of Key symbols.  The blue line is the course of the Severn River and connects the town of Shrewsbury in the north to the town of Worcester in the south.

The map to the left, from Bridgnorth in the north to Bewdley and Rock Parish in the south contains the oldest and most concentrated locations of Hubball families.  The circled parishes; Claverley, Tettenhall and Rock have the highest concentration of Hubball Families in the early centuries.  Tong Parish is also circled and is the location of Hubbal Grange, a possible origin of the Hubball name.  This area is referred to as the “Hubballs of the Severn River Valley”.  Most American Hubbell/Hubbles trace their earliest ancestor to Richard Hubball the Immigrant (~1624-1699) who immigrated to Connecticut from Rock and Ribbesford Parish, Worcestershire around 1640.
