Moved to Middletown. … Son of George Hubbard of Milford and Guilford; said to have been at Hartford as early as 1639, although he had no house lot then; removed to Middletown ca 1651; he sold his house lot in Hartford, and land on the east side of the Great River in or before 1650; freeman Middletown 1654."

    No credible evidence connects this George Hubbard with George Hubbard of Wethersfield, Milford and Guilford.
