William Tubb (b. 1808), son of William Tubb and Sarah Chard, married Sarah Ruff, daughter of William Ruff and Martha Preston, in Alverstoke, Gosport on 27 Jul 1827. Both William and Sarah had been baptised as infants at St Mary's Church, Portsea and I suspect they did not marry there as they'd already had baby Henry baptised there, probably claiming to be already married.

William and Sarah had twelve children:
  1. Henry Tubb bap. 12 Jun 1825 at St Mary's Church, Portsea
  2. Edward Tubb bap. 18 Nov 1827 at St Mary's Church, Portsea
  3. William Tubb bap. 30 Mar 1828 at St Mary's Church, Portsea
  4. Sarah Maria Tubb bap. 11 Jul 1830 at St Mary's Church, Portsea
  5. Elizabeth Jane Tubb bap. 30 Sep 1832 at St Mary's Church, Portsea (There is a burial of a Jane Tubb, aged 3, at St Mary's, on 22 Mar 1835.)
  6. James Henry Tubb b. 1 Apr 1834, bap. 6 Jul 1834 at St Mary's, Portsea
  7. Jane Tubb bap. 21 Aug 1836 at St Mary's Church, Portsea
  8. Amelia Tubb b. 1838 D Quarter in PORTSEA ISLAND UNION Volume 07 Page 120, bap. 3 Feb 1839 at St Mary's Church, Portsea
  9. Martha Louisa Tubb b. 1841 M Quarter Volume 07 Page 137
  10. Mary Ann Tubb b. 1843 M Quarter Volume 07 Page 136
  11. Alfred Tubb b. 1844 D Quarter Volume 07 Page 129
  12. Lavinia Tubb b. 1851 M Quarter Volume 07 Page 160, died, aged 2, in 1853 S Quarter Volume 02B Page 232, buried 2 Oct 1853, in Portsea.
They seem to have given up on baptisms after Amelia. This is not unusual and is something I've seen elsewhere, once civil registration had been introduced.

Edward was probably older than his baptism suggests, particularly with only 4 months between his and William's baptism. Likely Edward was also born before the marriage and William already on the way when they finally tied the knot. 

In 1841, William Tubb (35), Sarah Tubb (30), William Tubb (13), Sarah Tubb (11), James Tubb (7), Jane Tubb (5), Amelia Tubb (3) and Louisa Tubb (0) were listed in 'Marie Lee Borne Street' (Marylebone Street), which was just south of Portsmouth Town (Portsmouth & Southsea) Station. Sons Henry Tubb (15) and Edward Tubb (13), as well as their grandfather, William Tubb (54), were all residing in the household of John Windel (37) in Bow Street, Portsea. 

In 1851, still in Marylebone Street were William Tubb (42) Master Brush Maker, Sarah Tubb (42); their then married daughter, Sarah Donset (21); James Tubb (16), Sailor; Jane Tubb (14), Louisa Tubb (9), Mary Ann Tubb (7), Alfred Tubb (6) and Louisa (sic) - must be Lavinia (0). Amelia Tubb (12) was staying with her aunt and uncle James and Jane Frankham in Waterloo Street, Portsea.

Son William Tubb, born 1828, died, aged 26, in Alverstoke, Hampshire and was buried, on 19 Feb 1854 at St Mary's Church, Portsea.

Once more at Marylebone Street, in 1861, we find just William Tubbs (sic) (52), Brush Maker with wife Sarah Tubbs (sic) (52).

In 1871, in Landport, were William Tubb (62), Brush Maker, Sarah Tubb (62), daughter Louisa Nichlas (29) Widowed and granddaughter, Lydia Nichlas (5). 

William Tubb died in 1878, listed as 71 and is buried possibly at Kingston Cemetery. Sarah Tubb (née Ruff) died the following year of 1879. She was 71. There are records that suggest she is buried at St Mary's Church, Portsea.
