  • Notes 
    • Emigrated 1633. Successively in Salem, Watertown, Windsor, Wethersfield, Springfield, and Newport. [The Great Migration Directory]

      With his wife Tacy, a founder of the Seventh Day Baptist church in America.

      "The first Seventh Day Baptist church in America was at Newport, Rhode Island in December 1671. Samuel and Tacy Hubbard, two members of the First Baptist Church of Newport [...] withdrew from that church and joined with Stephen Mumford, a Seventh Day Baptist from England, and 4 others, covenanting to meet together for worship, calling themselves Sabbatarian Baptists." [Wikipedia]

      From "A Thumbnail Sketch of Seventh Day Baptists: 1650 - Present", at seventhdaybaptist.org:

      "Seventh Day Baptists date their origin with the mid-17th century separatist movement in England. With the renewed emphasis on the Scriptures for Free Church doctrine and practice, men such as James Ockford, William Saller, Peter Chamberlain, Francis Bampfield, Edward and Joseph Stennett concluded that the keeping of the seventh day Sabbath was an inescapable requirement of biblical Christianity. Some maintained membership within the Baptist fellowship and simply added the private Sabbath observance to their other shared convictions. As the power of the state was used to enforce conformity to a common day of worship, separation became necessary. The first separate church of record was the Mill Yard church founded about 1650 in London.

      "The study of the Scriptures in America brought Samuel and Tacy Hubbard to the Baptist principle of believer's baptism in 1647, and membership in the First Baptist Church of Newport, Rhode Island. Beginning in 1665, their family and several others became convinced of the seventh day Sabbath and joined in fellowship with Stephen Mumford and his wife who had held Sabbath convictions while members of a Baptist church in Tewkesbury, England. When two couples gave up their Sabbath convictions, the others found it difficult to share communion with them within First Baptist. Thus five members joined with the Mumfords in a covenant relationship, establishing the first Seventh Day Baptist Church in America in December, 1671. Even after this separation, close fellowship with other Baptists remained."

      From the WikiTree page for Samuel Hubbard:

      From an article in the Literary Diary of Ezra Stiles, President of Yale University, there is a copy of an old memorial stone which reads:

      Ebenezer
      Samuel Hubbard aged 10 of May 78 yeres
      Ould Tase Hubbard aged 27 Sep. 79 yeres and 7 mons
      4 Jen. maryed 51 yeres 1688
      14V psal 4. God have given us 7 children 4 ded 3 living
      Ruth Burdick 11, 1 ded 10 living
      Rachel Langworthy had 10 children 3 ded 7 living
      Bethiah Clark 9 living
      Great Grandchildren
      Naomi Rogers 1 ded 4 alyfe
      Ruth Philips 1 ded 4 alyfe
      CJudah Maxon
      Thomas Burd

      (The term Ebenezer means a memorial stone set up to commemorate divine assistance such as that found in 1 Samuel 7:12 when Samuel took a stone and set it up after a victory over the Philistines, saying "Hitherto the Lord has helped us.")

      A further note from the Stiles Diary explains: "I took this inscription off a gravestone in a family burying place on Baptist Berkeley's White Hall farm on Rd Isld, about A.D. 1763. Collector Robinson bought the lease about 1765 and demolished the gravestones and put them into a wall: so all is lost."[2] He interpreted this to mean that the stone was erected on September 27, 1688 when Samuel was 79 years old on May 10, Tacy was 79 years and 7 months old, and that they had been married for 51 years on January 4 of that year. The Psalm reference was Psalm 145:4 which reads, "One generation shall praise thy works to another."
