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 Salem, Mass., in October, 1633, and probably came in the ship James. Grant, master, which left Gravesend, England, late in August, 1633, and arrived 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 the Lord, in Mendlesham, in catechizing me and hearing choice ministers," &c. March 4, 1634-5, he was admitted a freeman, and shortly moved to my faith." This same year he went o Dorchester (Windsor) Ct., with the overland migrators. He was arrived 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 Fairfield, Ct., in 1647, through 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 diary; "God having enlightened both (but mostly my wife) into his holy ordinance of baptizing only of visible believers, and being very zealous for it, she was mostly struck at, and answered two terms publicly, where I was said to be as bad as she, and sore threatened with imprisonment to Hartford jail, if not to renounce it or to remove; that scripture came into our minds: "If they persecute you in one place flee to another; and so we did a day of October, 1648. We went for Rhode Island and arrived there the 12 day. I and my wife upon our manifestation of 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 Baptist and public religious disputant. For twenty-three years he belonged to the First Baptist Church of Newport, which sent him August 7, 1651, to boston "to visit the bretherin who was imprisoned in Boston Jayl for witnessing the truth of baptising believers only, Viz: Brothers John Clark, 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 Joseph Torrey and William Hiscox "to publicly dispute with those baptised there." December 23, 1671, with his wife, one daughter, and four other persons he formed the first Seventh Day Baptist Church in America. In July, 1668, he worte a letter to his cousin John Smith, of London, detailing his worldly possessions "through God's great mercy." In 1675 in his diary he refers to a "testament of my grandfather's Cocke's, printed in 1549, which he (Cocke) hid in his bed straw lest it should be found 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, and Governor Leete of Connecticut were his friends. He died between 1688 and 1692, and his wife after 1697, but no traces of their burial places have been found.
