Samuel HUBBARD

 

Born 1791

Second son of John HUBBARD and Catherine NOLAN, married Sarah WADDINGTON 1795 - 1870

Samuel and Sarah married 16 July 1822 at Christ Church York

 By 1828 Samuel (37yrs)  was listed in Pigot’s National Directory as a Maltster living at Free School Lane, Blaby, Leicester. A maltster would supply fine malts for the brewing of beer, ales and meads. In the 1800's it was hard to find clean drinking water, so the drinking of alcoholic beverages was safer as they were free of bacteria; not that it was fully understood quite how at that time. A maltster was not necessarily a brewer or pub owner as his was a specialism to supply to others.
