General Notes:From Bill Hubler:
The lineage of Janes NEWBURY/NEWBERRY is unclear. First, the
spelling of the name varies among families, locales and time, but
even the spelling differs among siblings. Common spellings of the
same name in Pennsylvania include Newberry, Newbery, Newborough,
Newbrough, and Newbury. Possibly James of 1750 was the son of John
Newberry who resided in Newlin Twp, Chester Coin 1785 (on tax rolls)

Trent in the state of New Jersey, that he was in the Battles of the
Short Hills, Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth, and Stoney Point", as

for a pension. In 1784, James married Sarah GUEST in East Nantmeal

General Notes: Hubler research courtesy of Bill Hubler.

Jacob Hubler, the pioneer settler of Jacobsburg, came from Twann in
Canton Bern, Switzerland. He lived in the town of Twann, a wine
making region near the Lake of Bienne, now known as Bieler See. This
was in the district of Nidau, some 15 miles northwest of Bern.

Jacob apprenticed as a shoemaker and went to Holland where he worked
as a journeyman. From there he migrated to America, sailing from
Rotterdam on the ship Virtuous Grace, arriving at Philadelphia
September 24, 1737. He took the oath of allegiance to the government
on that same day. About 1740 he settled in what was to become
Plainfield Township, Northampton County, which is now part of
Bushkill Township. By warrent and purchase his land holdings grew to
400 acres, which he called Jacobsburg. Jacob married Barbara sometime
before 1742 and there were seven sons and four daughters living in
1770, but so far, only 6 sons and two daughters have been identified.


In 1754 Jacob Hubler was the first of eleven landowners who signed a
petition for the erection of Plainfield Township which was fully
incorporated in 1762. In 1763 he took the oath of naturalization. On
Oct 2, 1775 he was elected to the Committee of Observation of
Northampton County, a patriotic service which is recognized by his
being listed in the DAR Patriot Index.

Jacob built the Jacobsburg Inn, probably earlier than 1785. It
contained quarters for a store, tavern, family residence and guest
accomodations.

After Jacob died the land eventually was broken up and sold, mainly
to the Henry family.

Jacob is buried in an unmarked grave on Jacobsburg farm.

Johann Jakob Hubler of Twann emigrated to America almost 50 years ago
and settled there in Plainfield in Northampton County. Before his
death in 1789 (1792?) he willed his property of 400 crowns in this
country to his oldest son, Jakob Hubler, on the grounds that the
other numerous children were sufficiently provided for by the
property which he had accumulated in America. Jakob Hubler, through
his proxy, Marc Voulaire, the teacher at Montmirail (Canton
ofNeuenburg [Neuchâtel]), now requests permission to withdraw this
capital in return for the surrender of his citizenship (Mannrecht). A
copy of the will in favor of Jakob Hubler, attested by a notary, is
submitted. The commune (Gemeinde) of Twann wishes to oppose the
withdrawal; but the government relies on the copy of the will which
has been produced and grants the payment of the400 crowns after the
tax of 10 percent has been deducted and the land-right surrendered.
The copy of the will and Jakob Hubler's renunciation of his
land-right shall be delivered to the commune for its security.The
identification papers (Ausweisschriften) were confirmed on October 1,
1792, by the notary John Hasse in Bethlehem, Northampton[p.54]County.
He said that he was thoroughly acquainted with both the English and
the German languages.
