1911 census follow-up

For those trying to trace their ancestors back from the current day this is an update using  the 1911 census. If you know the name of a Hubberstey ancestor alive at the time of the 1911 census this hopefully will be a good way to start your search.

I have listed all the Hubbersteys in the 1911 census under 4 categories. Based on the category your ancestor was in just go to that category and start your search. If you have any questions or don't know where to start just drop me an e-mail ( and I will do my best to help (I do have extra material not on this blog (for privacy reasons)).

Please remember that there were often Hubbersteys with the same first name (especially on the male side) so you want to also check the age and the town where they lived to make sure you get the right line.

Group 1. Hubbersty. The lines from the Kendal area. These have now died out on the male side, but there were members at the time of the 1911 census.

Group 2. Hubbersty. These are a variant form of the Hubberstey spelling, that run to the present. The original change happened in Warrington, where most of the descendants either live or came from. If you spell your name Hubbersty, and you have connections to Warrington, this is your group.

Group 3. Hubberstey - males. There were 64 male Hubbersteys listed. At the time there may have been variant spellings but ultimately all the descendants of these males eventually spelled their name Hubberstey. 

Group 4. Hubberstey - females. There were 91 female Hubbersteys listed in the 1911 census. This list includes those born as Hubbersteys and those that gained the surname through marriage.
