There is also the John Clubb Episcopal pastor who die dl7l6 in Penn after working with the Welsh. There are of course tons of Clubbs in England where the name first appears l544 in Suffolk.The etymology of the name is supposed to be from "clubbere" one who makes a club.IN the l200's in the Assize of arms, everyone in england was ordered to carry some kind of a weapon--a knife, a staff or a clubb.Makers of clubs were called by the MIddle ENglish Clubbere.The name Clubb occurs in England, Scotland and Wales.
I am curious how your line fits in with the Clubbs.I have almost a one half foot thick file on Clubbs.My line is Peter, Gasper, thru to Cape Girardeau Missouri, then down through Moses, Anthony (l862) , Ernest l888.I have a lot on the MIssouri Clubbs.At one time several of us tried to make a complete Clubb genealogy, but that was before computers and we almost lost our minds. There were also migrations of Clubbs to Canada, and several other Clubbs coming later from England to US and further confusing this family tree, which really is a twisted vine. I have recently done some research on the Criders, (orig Grider, Krider) and Moyers who married into the Clubb family.That led me to Pennsylvania as these families were originally Mennonite in Philadelphia county, and before that from Switzerland.
