Brief biography

William (1) Stubbs is suspected to have been born to parents John (1) Stubbs and his wife Hannah, probably around 1725-35 in Cheshire, Staffordshire or Derbyshire.

He appears to have first married Mary (nee) Taylor) on February 13th 1758 at Parwich, about eight miles north of Ashbourne in Derbyshire [IGI: Film 184312]. This marriage produced at least the three children listed below.

He is known to have married Sarah (nee) Cooper in 1772. So, if he had indeed been married before to Mary then she must have died not long after the birth of her child Matthew (1). William (1) and Sarah married by licence on March 20th 1772 in Snelston [Snelston Parish Register / IGI: Batch M058951]. They produced at least the six children listed below.

It is not yet known when or where William (1) or Sarah died, although the Snelston registers record the burial of a Sarah Stubbs (age not cited) on April 12th 1803.
