Introduction

Welcome to my paternal GRUBB family's roots from Delaware in the county of New Castle and Pennsylvania in the counties of Chester, Delaware and Lancaster. John Grubb, great-grandson of Thomas Grubb, was the immigrant ancestor from Stoke Climsland, Cornwall, England, arriving aboard the Ship Kent in the year 1677 at New Jersey. John settled down in Brandywine Hundred, New Castle County, Delaware. I hope you find a bloom or two to add to your bouquet of ancestors.

In Anglo-Saxon the name Grubb or Grubbe means a digger or a coarse person. Anglo-Saxon families tended to use surnames that described their occupation or a characteristic. Stoke Climsland, Cornwall, England is in the heart of Cornwall's ancient tin mining district.

I would like to thank David N. Grubb for his research and wonderful sense of sharing.
