George Jubbie alias Strange, Progenitor of the Jubbie surname

Date:
January 19, 2015

The descendants of the Jubbie family surname were begun just over one hundred years ago with the marriage of George Jubbie alias Strange and Lizzie Mary Thomas alias Davies in 1913, and the subsequent birth of their firstborn son in 1914. Since then, over 180 of their descendants have been born, spread across six generations, of which around only 50 individuals are still living and bearing the Jubbie surname today. This makes the Jubbie surname among one of the most unique and rarest surnames in the world today. The following story is about the progenitor of this rare family name and details the challenges faced and discoveries made during the research process into this Jubbie surname study.

George Jubbie alias George Strange never knew his parents. During his lifetime he told family that he was a foundling and that he had been left outside of a church convent and then raised at a boys home. He had recalled one memory of his mother being surrounded by lots of flowers and many ladies wearing brightly coloured dresses who would dote on him greatly, and he also recalled possibly growing up around the Primrose Hill area of London. Until very recently, no documents had been found linking George to any parents, and no documentary evidence had been discovered to show that he was a foundling, or lived at Primrose Hill.

The earliest document discovered during the research that the name “George Jubbie” appears in was an admission register for Clifton Certified Industrial Boys School in Bristol, Gloucestershire, England. It recorded that “George Jubbie alias Strange” was committed to the school under “section XIV of the Industrial Schools Act”, this section XIV of the industrial schools act meant that he was not a juvenile criminal but that he was at great risk of becoming one – he must have been found homeless, or begging, or in the company of reputed thieves, or in the company of reputed prostitutes in order to be committed to the school under this piece of legislation. This register also recorded that his date of birth “by warrant” was 10 October 1893 and that he had been admitted on 03 August 1900. Some surviving minute books from the Clifton Certified Industrial Boys School dutifully recorded that “one new boy was bought before the committee, Geo. Jubbie from London”, dated 18 September 1900. The 1901 census also recorded, George Jubbie alias Strange, an “inmate”, aged 7, from London. He was one of the youngest boys in the whole institution; many other boys staying there were much older than him. A list of rules still exists for the school and records in great detail the type of education and vocational training that George received during his time at the boy’s home. Much to my annoyance all other records for the boy’s school were destroyed by fire during the bombing blitz of World War II.

The records that have survived raise an important question: why did George seem to use two different surnames? To answer this question it is necessary to examine the circumstances of the time. George was allegedly 6 years and 10 months old when he was sent to the certified industrial school, though he was probably much younger when abandoned/deserted/found at the church convent, maybe as young as 2 or 3 years old. Understandably, he might not have known his real name, age, or birthday so he could have made that all up. Alternatively, it could have been a nickname, or perhaps someone in authority bestowed the name upon him. Or, possibly one was his mother’s surname and the other his father’s.

After an exhaustive search for all known surname variants for Jubbie and Strange during the early 1890s, and in the civil birth registration indexes of England and Wales, the original birth entry for George Jubbie alias George Strange “might” have finally been found after almost 15 years of searching for it. One entry indexed at the General Register Office of England and Wales for the December quarter of 1893 reads: Reuben George H STRANGE, district of St Geo H Sq, volume 1a, page 440. The actual birth certificate itself reads: Registration District of St George Hanover Square, Birth in the sub-district of St John Westminster, in the County of London, No 483, born 6 October 1893 at 7 Frederick Street, Reuben George Henry, no father entered, illegitimate son of Ellen STRANGE, a general dealer, of 7 Frederick Street Westminster, registered on 15 November 1893.

The reasons that this is believed to be his original birth are threefold. Primarily, that this birth entry is as close to his alleged birth date as was possible to find, just four days apart. Secondarily, it is seemingly registered in the right area of London that he had vaguely remembered being in as a young boy. Lastly, the birth was illegitimate with no father named, which also ties in with there being no father’s name mentioned on his marriage certificate. However, this birth certificate is not conclusive evidence, it does raise some doubts. Firstly, the primary forename recorded was Reuben not George, although, it is widely accepted as common practice during the Victorian and Edwardian era for people to adopt their second or middle name as their proper name for everyday use. Secondly, it would seem from this document that the alias surname of Strange was actually his mother’s surname, so where then did the Jubbie surname come from? Perhaps it was simply a nickname, or some corruption of Reuben. Perhaps it was later discovered that his father’s surname was Jubbie, but then if that was the case why was this not recorded on his marriage certificate?

To hopefully counteract these doubts, further research was conducted for Reuben and Ellen Strange in the records still available. With Reuben George Henry, it quickly became apparent that he could not be traced in the UK census records for 1901 or 1911, so perhaps he had died already by then, but no death record could be found for him anywhere in the UK indexes. There were birth, census, and death record documents for “another” Reuben Strange born around the same time, but this turned out to be a completely different Reuben Strange who was born, lived and died in Lincolnshire, England. So, what had become of Reuben George Henry? He had been born illegitimately and so it was fair to surmise that he may have spent some time in a workhouse or similar such institution in the area that he was born. The districts of St George Hanover Square and St John Westminster were part of St George’s Poor Law Union in London and served by the Fulham Road Workhouse in Westminster. Records for this institution still exist and a thorough search of these workhouse documents found that Reuben & Ellen were in and out of the Fulham Road Workhouse on numerous occasions from January 1895 through to April 1895.

The workhouse creed registers, admission registers and discharge records all recorded the same details for the mother and son as follows: Ellen Strange, class 5, born 1861, a general dealer, single, Roman Catholic, admitted by self, admitted from the parish of St Margaret, and also, Reuben Strange, class 9, born October 1893, illegitimate, Roman Catholic, admitted by Mother, admitted from the Parish of St Margaret. What became of mother and son after being in the workhouse then? It had already been established that Reuben George Henry was no-where to be found in the census records, nor in the marriage or death records, nor in any emigration records leaving the country. It was fair to surmise therefore that he might have assumed another name or been given another identity by someone. The educated guess concluded from this was that Reuben George Henry Strange became known as George Jubbie alias Strange. This conclusion is based both on the evidence which can be found and that which cannot be found.

Next, to discover what became of his single mother Ellen Strange. It could be argued that only one particular person was found that “fit-the-bill”, so to speak. The 1901 census for Bethnal Green London, 56 Quilter Street, was occupied by four spinster sisters: Elizabeth Strange, 40, housekeeper, born Newbury Berkshire; Hellen Strange, 38, paper box maker born Newbury Berkshire; Kate Strange, 36, paper box maker, born Newbury Berkshire; and Mary Strange, 36, tea packer grocer, born Bethnal Green London. The 1911 census documented that the four sisters were still living at the same address, engaged in the same occupations, and still single spinsters. Searching back to the 1891 census again recorded these “Strange” spinster sisters living at the same address, two of whom were domestic servants, and the other two were paper box makers, the only difference being that their widowed father was head of the household, Henry E Strange, widow, 71, carpenter, born Oxford.

Interestingly, one of the earliest memories recounted by George Jubbie was that of him being surrounded by several ladies in brightly coloured dresses and that these ladies would dote on him greatly. Perhaps this household occupied by the four spinster ladies was the household that had sparked his earliest memory? It would be really nice to think this to be the case, but of course it is pure speculation and can never be proven either way. However, according to the other records available for the Strange family, the four girls had lost their mother when she died in 1878, and by the 1890s their widowed father was already in his 70s until he too died in 1894 aged 74.

Therefore, if this “Hellen” or “Ellen” was indeed Reuben’s mother, then this family’s set of circumstances certainly go a long way to explaining why she ended up in the workhouse with Reuben George Henry, and also to possibly explain why she could not have kept him or cared for him herself. With regards to completing the picture on Ellen Strange, no other information post 1911 could be found for her except for her death during the first quarter of 1913 at Bethnal Green London. So, for further clarification it was necessary to focus on researching her extended family and here is what was found:

  1.  Henry Edward Strange, was born 1822 in Oxford, and died in 1894 at Bethnal Green London. His wife was Mary Pickett, born 1824 at Hermitage Berkshire. They married in 1851 at Wantage Berkshire, and Mary died in 1878 at Bethnal Green. They had six children together;
  2. Martha Ann, born 1852 at Newbury Berkshire, died aged 17 in 1869 at Abingdon Berkshire.
  3. Elizabeth, born 1854 at Newbury, died a spinster in 1929 at Bethnal Green London.
  4. Henry Edward, born 1857 at Newbury, married Eliza Mary Dawson in 1883 at Hackney London. Eliza died in 1901 at Hackney and Henry married again in 1911 at Hackney, to Margaret Ann Cullum. Margaret died in 1935 and Henry died in 1936, both at Clapton Middlesex. Henry and Eliza had three children together: Henry Edward Dawson, 1884-1905, at Hackney; Maud Helen, 1886-1910, at Hackney; and Ralph Morton Strange, at Hackney in 1888. Ralph Morton emigrated to Canada in 1911. He married Louise Florian Alexander at Vancouver British Columbia. Ralph died in 1959 and Louise in 1977 – both at Vancouver and they had no issue.
  5. Ellen, born 1859 in Newbury Berkshire, died in 1914 at Bethnal Green. Illegitimate son, Reuben George Henry Strange, born 1893 in Westminster London, whereabouts unknown but probably became known by the name of George Jubbie alias George Strange.
  6. Kate, born 1861 at Newbury, died a spinster in 1927 at Bethnal Green London.
  7. Mary, born 1867 at Bethnal Green, died a spinster in 1923 at Bethnal Green.

 Some interesting side notes arose regarding the children that George Jubbie eventually had. His first daughter was named Kate, his second daughter named Maud and his third daughter named Mary. These were not traditional Welsh names such as the other names chosen for his children: Brinley, Eluned, Emlyn and Howell. While his firstborn grandchild, eldest daughter of Kate, was also named Helen. So, perhaps these English-named individuals – Kate, Mary, Maud and Helen – were simply named by tradition after Reuben/George’s mother and aunts. That would be a fair assumption in any case. Now that this introduction into the Strange surname branch is completed, the focus can be turned back to that documented about George Jubbie alias George Strange himself.

 During the 1890s and early 1900s certified industrial schools, such as the one that George was sent to, were only meant for boys up to the age of sixteen by which time they were expected to work in a trade that they had been taught at the school. In April 1909, six months before his sixteenth birthday George was licensed out as a farm labourer, and like many orphan boys he was sent to South Wales to work on the farms there. This was recorded in the second half of the school register, that was previously discovered, which dutifully noted that he received four payments or “licensing allowances” during his first few months of new employment, the last of which he received in December 1909. The school minutes also recorded that on 6 April 1909, “G. Jubbie who is leaving the school came before the committee”. So, George was now out on his own in the world with no friends or known family to help guide him in life. Two years later, when the 1911 census took place, George was living in a small rural village of Merthyr St Envail just a few miles to the south-west of Carmarthen in south Wales. He was listed as a servant, aged seventeen, living in the home of a widowed farmer named Anne Thomas where he worked as a farm labourer. Strangely, George recorded that he did not come from London as previous records had stated, but, rather, that he was born in France with French Nationality, and could only speak the English language and not any Welsh. So, perhaps this meant that his Jubbie surname was of French origin. Two years later, George would meet his future wife.

Deep in the valleys of South Wales between the towns of Carmarthen and Llanelli lies a small village called Crwbin. This quaint little village is within the ancient parish of Llangyndeyrn town which itself is situated in the beautiful valley of Gwendraeth Fach. A Welsh woman called Catherine Davies lived in this village, in a farmer’s/miner’s/labourer’s cottage called “Brynbach” and this was situated on the top of a small mountain known locally as “Mynydd Llangendeyrn”. In the year 1896, spinster Catherine enrolled her four year old foster-daughter called Lizzie Mary Thomas into the local primary school at the nearby village of Bancffosfelen. According to the school admissions register her date of birth was 3 June 1892, she was living at Brynbach, and her parent/guardian was Catherine Davies. By the time of the 1901 census, Catherine Davies was still living at Brynbach Cottage, as her parents had before her from at least as early as 1828! In the 1901 census Catherine was recorded as a single mother, aged 55, a charwoman, with two children, a son called Howell Davies aged 25 and also a daughter called Lizzie Davies aged 10 years old. So, Catherine was now calling her foster-daughter Lizzie by the foster-surname of “Davies”, rather than her alleged birth surname “Thomas”.

 Ten years later, in the 1911 census, the Davies family were still living at Brynbach Cottage. Howell Davies had by now married a lady named Martha Williams and they had a two year old daughter, Catherine Mary, but had also lost two children that had died during infancy. One was Thomas John Davies and the other remains unknown but presumably had been a stillbirth as there is no record in the birth or death indexes at that time in our history. Lizzie Davies alias Lizzie Mary Thomas had left home and Catherine was now fostering a five year old boy named Bertie Emanuel. Bertie was the great-grand-nephew of Catherine, by her brother John Davies, and John’s daughter and son-in-law Owen and Anne Emanuel nee Davies. Anne appears to have died in childbirth with Bertie in 1905. Perhaps Lizzie was related to Catherine in a similar way, too, although research has not yet found any blood relationship. Lizzie was now living and working as a labourer on a nearby farm called “Gwndwn Mawr”, but she had reverted back to her birth surname of Thomas. Presumably, she had been told of her foster-ship into the Davies family by Catherine and Howell sometime between 1901 and 1911. Another two years later, in 1913, and Lizzie was living and working as a domestic labourer at another nearby farm called “Torcoed Ganol”. It was on that farm that she met a young farm labourer, a twenty year old man by the name of George Jubbie.

It was during the winter of 1913 that George and Lizzie Mary became married. They married at Carmarthen Registry Office where her brother Howell Davies was a witness to the solemnization of their marriage together with another witness by the name of David Daniels whose relationship is yet unknown. Lizzie married using her birth surname Thomas and not her foster-surname Davies. She also recorded her father’s name as Tom Thomas, so this must have been a name that Catherine and/or Howell had told to Lizzie as being her original birth father. George Jubbie did not list any name for his father, as he never knew who his father was, nor his mother. In 1914, Lizzie and George had their first-born child, a son called Brinley, at Brynbach, Mountain, Crwbin. In 1916, they had their first-born daughter, “Kate” Laura, (perhaps named after his aunt?) born at Melbourne House, Bancffosfelen. In 1917, they moved back to Crwbin, to Cwrt Cottage, a stone barn-house, nearby to some ancient chapel ruins known locally as “Capel Dyddgen”. In 1918, they had another daughter, Eluned “Maud” (perhaps named after his other aunt?) and in 1920 another daughter named “Mary” Hannah (perhaps named after his other aunt?). Sadly, in 1921, Eluned Maud died from laryngitis and stomatitus just 3 years old and was buried at the local chapel cemetery, the very first burial at a newly opened cemetery in the village. They somehow overcome their loss because one year later in 1922 a second son Emlyn was born. In 1924, they had another son, “Howell” John (seemingly named after Lizzie’s foster-brother). Then in 1926 Lizzie suffered the trauma of a stillbirth, which went unrecorded in certificates back then, but for which a cemetery burial was recorded, again at the local burial ground of Ebenezer Independent Chapel. In 1929, Lizzie gave birth to her eighth and final child, a son, Desmond, thus completing the very first generation of the Jubbie family.

After their marriage and during the 1910s and 1920s, while they were still living at Cwrt Cottage, George had stopped working the land on the farms and had instead begun working down the mines as a coal hewer. Presumably, this was better paid and more permanent than casual farming work, which would have been very seasonal, mainly harvest time and lambing/calving season, and so on. Lizzie of course was a stay-at-home housewife with seven youngsters to look after. Coal mining though was a dangerous job and at one time led to George suffering a major injury – some coal apparently slid back down the top hole and hit George with enough force to fracture one of his legs. However, as dangerous as it was, this underground work was a job that possibly saved George’s life. With the outbreak of World War I, mining for coal became a reserved occupation which was deemed utterly vital towards the war effort. This meant that George was exempt from being called up to arms and probably prevented him from being killed in the trenches of France and Flanders as many other twenty-something year old young men would have been during the Great War.

Having survived the Great War without losing any relatives on the battlefields, the start of the new decade, the 1930s, saw tragedy strike the family. On 22 January 1933, Lizzie’s foster-mother Catherine Davies passed away, aged 89; cause of death was senile decay. Lizzie was just 39 years old, quite young to lose a mother. George and Lizzie’s two daughters, Kate Laura and Mary Hannah, would usually share a bed with their grandmother at Brynbach Cottage and they apparently discovered their grandmother dead beside them in their bed one morning. What a shock that must have been to two young girls! Towards the end of that same year, just two days before George and Lizzie’s twentieth wedding anniversary, Lizzie’s foster-brother, Howell, passed away on 11 November 1933, aged 57, cause of death was bronchitis, emphysema and cardiac failure. Finally, one year later, Lizzie’s sister-in-law, Martha, also died, on 28 November 1934, aged 63, from a diabetic coma. Lizzie had just lost all of her foster-family within the space of two years.

At this turning point in the Jubbie family’s life, in 1934, they uprooted themselves from the “village in the valley”. There was simply nothing to keep them there any more – no known family, nor work. They moved southwards to Trimsaran Town, nowadays famous for its rugby union football heritage, but where it had then provided a guaranteed income down the coal mines for George and his working-age sons, Brinley and Emlyn. The younger sons, Howell John and Desmond, were transferred from Bancffosfelen school to Trimsaran school where they still had another three or four years compulsory education to complete, while the two girls, Kate Laura and Mary Hannah, stayed at home helping Lizzie with housework as many young daughters did back in those days. Then, one night when Lizzie was asleep, Kate Laura for some unknown reason decided it would be funny to cut off her mother Lizzie’s long plaited hair as a practical joke with very predictable results! They had a huge falling out over the incident, so much so, that in 1934 or 1935, Kate Laura ran away from home. She made her way across the Severn Channel into England and then travelled east towards London.

 George went looking for their runaway daughter and, after a lengthy search, he found her living in Hackney Shoreditch London. She would not return home to Wales, because she had now seemingly found herself a boyfriend, or fiancée, by the name of Reginald Matthews. George made an agreement with Kate Laura that she could remain living in London with the proviso that the whole Jubbie family would have to move down to London to be with her. The Jubbie family moved to Hackney Shoreditch London in 1939 with the exception of young Desmond who had been evacuated to Northamptonshire due to the first “London Blitz” and, also excluding Brinley, who had got married while living in Trimsaran and had decided to move away to Birmingham, Warwickshire, with his in-laws. By the time George and Lizzie and the rest of the family had moved down to Hackney in 1939, Kate Laura had become married to the young man she was with, Reginald Henry Matthews.

 With the outbreak of World War II, the eldest sons, Brinley, Emlyn and Howell John, were conscripted into the forces and, upon being demobilized in 1943/1944, they moved away from war-torn London. Brinley moved back to Birmingham in Warwickshire with his wife, Netta Mills; Emlyn moved to Bath in Somerset where he met his wife, Evelyn Snook; and Howell John moved to Nottinghamshire where he met his wife, Nellie Hardwick. Desmond Jubbie moved down from Northampton to Pinxton in Derbyshire where he met his wife, Maude Wardle. Mary Hannah also moved away, to Reading in Berkshire, with her new husband, Benjamin Beards. Kate Laura and her husband, Reginald Henry Matthews, remained living in the Hackney Shoreditch area of London, as did George and Lizzie Mary, too, so that by 1948, Kate, Reginald, George and Lizzie were all living together in a typical terraced house of the time at Hoxton Street Shoreditch.

Kate Laura’s marriage was not too last. Sometime between 1954 and 1958 she separated from her husband Reginald and they were eventually divorced. During the month of March 1959, Kate Laura became married to her second husband, William James “Bill” Hunter, and just a few short months after the marriage, tragedy struck the family again. In August 1959, Lizzie Mary Jubbie passed away, aged 68, from heart failure coronary thrombosis at Pinxton in Derbyshire at the home of her youngest son Desmond. By this time, both George and Lizzie had left their daughter’s home in London, possibly because of the relationship problems there had been between Kate and Reginald, and they had moved to “the north” to live with their youngest sons instead. More sadness was to come again that year. Four short months later, and just two days before Christmas Day, 1959, George Jubbie passed away, aged 67, of heart failure chronic bronchitis and pneumoconiosis, at the home of his second youngest son, Howell John, in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire. George and Lizzie Mary Jubbie were laid to rest together in an unmarked grave at the cemetery of St Helen’s Churchyard in Pinxton, Derbyshire.
