Hubners Grave in St Katherine's Churchyard


Peter Paul Hubner was born in Bohemia, Austria in 1869. He married Laura Williams in Worcester in 1899, in 1901 he is living with Laura and their new born a son Julius Henry Charles Hubner. His occupation is described as Lithographic designer. By 1911 he had moved south to Tufnell Park Islington, where he was living with his wife and three sons. Julius, Everard and Arthur. His occupation stated as Artist Painter and Designer.

I have found little about his life and have found only three of his paintings so far. None of which can be said are of Canvey. I have found references to his Canvey paintings so will keep looking.

All I have found for sure is his grave in St Katherine's with his death stated as 31st August 1928, he was buried on the 4th September and his address recorded in the Registers was 'The Studio', Long Road. His wife Laura died in 1953 in Hove and is buried in the same grave.
