Administrative/Biographical history:

A Robert Tubbs is mentioned in several of the documents in this collection. According to The Times (Weds Aug 20 1884) a Robert Tubbs died on 15th August 1884 at 55 Harley Street, aged 88. Tubbs was from Harlesden and also held Mayertorne Manor, Wendover, Buckinghamshire. He was a Justice of the Peace and Deputy Lieutenant for Middlesex, and was the eldest and last surviving son of Robert Tubbs of Harlesden. His wealth at death was over 10,000. It seems likely this was the same individual. Other notices in The Times"mention a Charles Tubbs, younger brother of Robert Tubbs, who died in March 1861; and a Sophia Tubbs, wife of Robert Tubbs senior, who died in 1841 after a 'short but severe' illness.
