Year Book Society of Colonial Wars: LIEUTENANT JOHN CHUBBUCK BY EDWARD S CRANDON The unfortunate expedition under Sir William Phips against Canada in 1690 called into military service some 2,200 men of New England mainly from the Massachusetts and Plymouth Colonies. The town of Hingham settled in 1633 by emigrants from the town of the same name in England furnished a company of troops for the expedition the lieutenant of which was John Chubbuck born in Hingham Dec 30 1648. He was the son of Thomas Chubbuck and wife Alice who had settled at Charlestown soon after 1630 and had joined with the other natives of Hingham England in establishing a new Hingham in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Thomas was one of the proprietors of the new town receiving grants of land in 1635 and subsequent years and died there Dec 9 1676. His eighth child and second surviving son John Chubbuck was a selectman of Hingham 1679 and also in 1690 when the expedition against Canada called him into service as he held the commission of lieutenant. He lost his life on this expedition falling a prey to disease Nov 26 1690. The expedition sailed from Boston Aug 8 1690 and its disastrous result was known in the colony early in November. It cost Massachusetts some 50,000 pounds in money and many lives of her colonists without any compensation in actual result or even in military renown. Lieutenant Chubbuck's will dated Aug 6 1690 two days before his departure on the expedition was presented for probate April 3 1691. His wife was Martha Beal daughter of Nathaniel Beal of Hingham. To his three younger sons he bequeathed his lands at Agawam in Plymouth Colony. Nathaniel Chubbuck his eighth child and fifth son born June 8 1686 married June 5 1707 Margaret Joy of Hingham and removed to Wareham of which town he was one of the first proprietors and settlers [History of Hingham I 249 II 123]
