The Jubb Family in Batley Yorkshire

The Jubbs

The first Jubb family in Batley parish was that of Joseph Jubb, born about 1786 in Hanging Heaton. He married Leticia Talbot in Batley Parish. They and their children and grandchildren were among Batley's most prominent citizens.

Joseph Jubb was an original member of the Hick Lane Mill. Built in 1822, it was the first mill designed for the manufacture of shoddy.

"Mr. Joseph Jubb and his six sons owned five mills between them and had social position to match."

Malcolm Haigh The History of Batley

Note: Joseph's sons were: John 1807, Joseph 1809, George 1819, Samuel 1821, by his marriage to Leticia Talbot and Thomas c. 1837 and James Brook c. 1840 by his marriage to Mary _____

The descendants of Joseph Jubb subsequently branched out and invested in the Howley Park Colliery (coal mine) assuring that their mills would not run out of fuel.

The family initially lived in town but following the fashion of successful mill owners the sons, John, George, and Samuel moved to mansions in Upper Batley where John was listed in Lamplands House, (1861 through 1881), George was listed in Swiss House (1871 and 1881) and Samuel was listed in Woodfield (1871 and 1881). By In 1901 the only Jubb living in the area was James Brook Jubb, the son of Joseph and his second wife born in 1840, who had replaced George Jubb at Swiss House. 1901 Charles Carter (shoddy manufacturer) was at Lamplands and Harry Dyson (cigar merchant) was a Woodfield. Samuel Jubb's widow, Mary, was living with their daughter, Eleanor, on Park Avenue Rutland Road, Batley.

Joseph's son, Samuel born in 1821, wrote The History of the Shoddy-Trade its rise progress and present position. Interestingly, Samuel Jubb didn't credit Benjamin Law as the developer of shoddy. Samuel certainly must have known of Benjamin's role in inventing the process as his father, Joseph Jubb, and Benjamin Law were contemporaries and other writers of the time credit Benjamin Law. Furthermore Samuel Jubb made the following statement in 1873:

"The shoddy manufacture was commenced at Batley, Yorkshire, in the year 1813, being introduced by Mr. Benjamin Law, of the same place."

On the Shoddy Trade by Samuel Jubb Report of the forty-Third Meeting by British Association for the Advancement of Science held at Bradford in September 1873

See Batley Information.

Note: The Law family clearly felt the Jubb snub. In an article in the Batley Reporter in 1880 Edwin Law wrote about the discovery of shoddy:

"The first and least reliable, so far as the origin is concerned, is one published in 1860, written by Mr. Samuel Jubb. In this publication Mr. Jubb would leave the public to infer that the origin of the trade was involved in obscurity."

And further:
"Mr. Jubb in his "History of the Shoddy Trade" says "it is uncertain who first produced rag-wool, or shoddy, but the presumption is in the favour of Mr. Benjamin Law".

In response to the article Samuel Jubb wrote to Edwin Law and Edwin replied to Samuel's letter and then sent copies of both letters to the Batley newspaper to be published.
"Sir - will you kindly give publicity in your columns to the following correspondence, which will explain itself! Edwin Law 30th November 1880

Batley November 25th
Mr. Edwin Law Dear Sir

Having inadvertently omitted to acknowledge receipt of your pamphlet duly on the "Discovery and early history of the Shoddy and Mungo Trades" I hasten to thank you for your courtesy in the matter. You speak of my account of the rise of the early shoddy trade as being "unreliable". To this I can only reply that at the time I wrote my book on the subject I made all the enquiry I well could and I think and am almost sure I consulted Mr. Parker upon whom you so much rely for your information. I had no object other than to narrate the truth and to do justice to everybody. I believe I mentioned no name but that of Mr. Benjamin Law to whom I assigned the honour of being probably the party who first applied shoddy in the manufacture of woollen goods.

I hope to have the opportunity of talking the matter over with Mr. Parker with a view to the confirmation of your remarks and shall be happy to give "honour to whom honour is due".

I agree with you that this district has benefited largely, very largely by the discovery in question and that the credit of it should be given to those to whom it rightfully belongs.

I am yours truly.

Saml Jubb.

Edwin Law's reply
Patricroft November 30th
To S Jubb

Dear Sir

I beg to acknowledge the receipt this morning of your courteous communications of the 25th. In reply I may say that I do not soley "rely upon Mr. Parker for my information" respecting the origin of the shoddy trade, but I do look up on Mr. Parker's narration to myself as most valuable. (1) as setting the early date of discovery and (2) as confirmation of the story of the origin of the trade I have heard from more than one member of the family. I remember the publication of your book and that, at the time it was considered by the Law family that you had not quite done justice to their ancestor. My father, I remember, extremely regretted the tone of the book. Why it was left to me to vindicate my grandfather's right to the honour of being the inventor of shoddy cloth I cannot say, seeing that there were and are others more particularly interested than myself.

Some time after the publication of your book I left Batley and it was not until some years had elapsed that, happening to be looking over the old books stalls at Shudehill Market, Manchester, and seeing a larger number of new copies of your work exposed for sale, the subject again recurred to my mind. I at once wrote a letter on the subject to the Batley papers. In the letter I referred to a certain old man, since decease, as the reputed weaver of the first shoddy piece. I heard incidentally, some time afterwards, that you had some conversation with him on the subject, the purport of which I do not know, but I suppose it was confirmatory of my statement, otherwise you would not, doubtless, have allowed it to go uncorrected.

You say, in your note, that at the time you wrote your book you made all the enquiry you could. Now I believe that most historians consider family reminiscences of some value and worthy of consultation, even though they might find it necessary to question their accuracy. May I therefore ask you which of the members of Mr. Benjamin Law's family you consulted with when composing your book?

I am sure you will pardon me for pointing out your inaccuracy in stating in your note to me that you "assigned to Mr. Benjamin Law the honour of being probably the party who first applied shoddy in the manufacture of woollen goods". This is just what you omitted to state. You tell us, on page 17 of your book, that it is uncertain who first produced ragwool or shoddy but the presumption is in the favour of Mr. Benjamin Law and then diminish "the presumption" by stating that several persons began running rag machines almost simultaneously. Then you go on to say that there were earlier machines than these elsewhere, particularly at Brighouse, where Mr. Law sent his rags to be ground. You further state that rag machines were used in London prior to their use in the West Riding. All we can gather from this is "a presumption" that Mr, Law was NOT the first producer of ragwool or shoddy. The argument proves too much, and mole ruit sua - it falls by its own weight. He, indeed, found it ready made, and had sufficient discernment to see its value in the manufacture of cloth, to which he applied it.

I have taken the liberty of forwarding your letter and my reply to the Reporter and am sure you will not be slow to avail yourself of the same means of performing an act of justice to the memory of one to whom Batley owes so much.

I am dear sir, yours faithfully Edwin Law"

Note: Mr. Parker was
"Mr. Joseph Parker of the firm of Joseph Parker and sons, manufacturers, Batley, who is well known for his connection with the Board of Health of which he was 8 years a member and 6 years the chairman. He was one of the Board of Surveyors and in 1837 was one of the last overseers of the poor under the old law and one of the first members under the new law. Mr. Parker will also be remembered as the founder of the Batley Chamber of Commerce and the promoter of various important improvements in the town. He is one of the oldest aborigines of Batley and was born in the year 1799 at "Lane End".

Of interest is the fact that two of Benjamin's children were listed in the 1845 tax records as renting property from the Jubbs:

  1. Joseph Law was renting a house from Jubb, Sheard and (can't read) in Havercroft
  2. John Law was renting a house from J. Jubb in Havercroft

    • Barbara Wilson, servant, age 40
    • Note: Elizabeth Gertrude Stocker was the daughter of Ellen Sheard, and granddaughter of Ann Colbeck, who is believed to be the sister of Hannah Colbeck. Andy Coates says:
      James Sheard married Ann Colbeck and Hannah Jubb's maiden name was Colbeck, as far as I can tell they were sisters. James Sheard died in his thirties and I believe that Ellen Sheard was "adopted" by the Jubbs (who had no children at the time). However we find, in 1871, Ellen (Sheard) Stocker was living with her mother (in a huge mansion called Blenheim House - which now caters marriages and the like).

John Joseph Jubb Mayor of Batley, 1884-1886

Ben writes:

I was just about to put an old photo back in the attic, when I thought I'd look up the name on the web.

John Joseph Jubb was my mother's grandfather. The picture is attached. My mother was Edith May Whitehead born June 1920, but I don't know much else.

Jubb children?

Ben writes:

Another is believed to be the Jubbs' children (my mother put a question mark against that, so she wasn't certain).
Given that:
  • The other Jubb pictures in the possession of Ben Friman are of Matilda Sheard Jubb and her husband, John Joseph Jubb
  • These are believed to be the Jubb children
  • The apparent order of ages and sexes of the children in this photo
it is possible that these are Albert, (1880), Claude (1881), Beatrice (1883). Bernard (1885) and Nina (1887)

Ben Friman also sent a photo of John Sheard. See Michael Sheard and Sarah Lister
