Notes for Rachel Hubbard
Rachel Hubbard was the daughter of Samuel and Tase (Cooper) Hubbard and was born March 10, 1642, at Agawam, now Springfield, Mass. She was taken by her parents to Fairfield, Conn., in 1647 and later, Oct. 12, 1648, to Rhode Island.
1658, Nov. 3. Married Andrew Langworthy.
1661, Sept. 29. Baptized by Elder John Crandall.
1666, Jan. 15. Began "keeping of the Lord's holy 7th day Sabbath."
1671, Dec. 23. Entered into a church covenant with William Hiscox, Stephen Mumford, Samuel Hubbard, Roger Baster, Sister Hubbard and Sister Mumford (Organization of the first Seventh Day Baptist Church in America).
1674, Sep. 30. Was baptized and had hands laid on her by Rev. William Hiscox of the Seventh Day Baptist Church. (Down to the present time a large part of the descendants of Andrew and Rachel have been members of that church.)
May 7, 1688, Samuel Hubbard wrote to Richard Brooks of Boston, "The mesles is not gone here, my daughter Rachel have them and some of her family."
1692. On church membership list at Newport.
1699, Sept. 17. Member of a committee of the church to visit Sarah Tifft in answer to her request.
WFL asserted that two other references applied to her:
“* 1708, July 21. On church list.
* 5d. 9m. 1712 follows above entry. It has been suggested that it is the date of Rachel's death.”
However these last references come from the church lists at Westerly, not Newport, so they may apply to Samuel Langworthy’s wife or daughter. Moreover 5d. 9m. 1712 means that the individual was on the Westerly membership list taken on that date, and it appears after many names. It’s really a proof that a person was alive at that time.
