About Tacy Hubbard

Founder of the Seventh-Day Baptist Church in America. Tacy's may be short for Anastasia ("resurrection). Tase was born in 1608 and was 2 years older than her husband. She had a brother John who lived in London in 1677 and 1680 and a brother who lived in Yarmouth, England. Tacy had a great deal of influence on her husband's religious path she being adamant regarding their stance on infant baptism, observing the Sabbath, and taking communion.

They first lived in Wethersfield after their marriage. Wethersfield with other towns were involved with hostilities with the Pequots. Times were hard, and their church only had 7 members, and there was inner dissent. Tase and Samuel removed to Springfield in 1639 with their first child, six months old. They stayed there for 8 years and born there were Bethiah, Ruth and Rachel. On May 10th, 1647, the Hubbards departed Springfield and went downriver to found another settlement, Fairfield. Here they were threatened with jail in Hartford if they did not renounce their views on baptism. This prompted them to leave for Rhode Island Oct. 2, 1648 for a 12 day journey. There they were baptized by Pastor John Clarke on Nov. 3, 1648. Baptists were being actively persecuted by the Puritans at this time. Tase and Samuel were with this church for 23 years, and Samuel was their biographer. In March 1665, Tase was converted to the teachings of the sabbatarian Stephen Mumford. She seems again to have taken the lead on this issue, with Samuel following about a month later.For six more years they continued worship at Mr. Clarke's church.Harrassment and prosecutions continued for objectors of infant baptism like Thomas Gould. Finally, the matter came to a head as to whether a church could be allowed to practice anabaptism and Samuel Hubbard, William Hiscox and Joesph Torrey went to the General Court to present their case to defend their colleagues in Boston. This did not sway the court and 2 men, Farnum and Turne,r were sentenced to perpetual imprisonment, and Russell died in prison.

Samuel always speaks of his and Tacy's marriage as "co-heirs of one mind in the Lord" and they seemed to have had a very happy marriage. Their continued views about the Sabbath, however, caused a final breach with Mr. Clarke's church (Clarke was now their son in law). . On the 23 of December 1671, five people withdrew from Clarke's church and with 2 others, founded at Newport, the first Seventh Day Baptist Church in America.They were William Hiscox, Samuel and Tase Hubbard, Stephen Mumford and wife, and Tase's daughter Rachel Langworthy and Roger Baster. A second church was later founded at Hopkinton. In this church the Hubbards grandchildren were very prominent workers. They continued to struggle, but the church grew with powerful and well respected membership. Roger Williams remained a life long friend. Tase is found at church in 1697 but there is no trace of her after that. Source: Samuel Hubbard, of Newport. 1610-1689 by Huling, Ray Greene, 1847-1915. [from old catalog]

"The first recorded Seventh Day Baptist meeting was held at The Mill Yard Church in London in 1653 under the leadership of Dr. Peter Chamberlen. However many Seventh Day Baptists believe that records showing that it had originated in 1617 were lost in a fire.

The first Seventh Day Baptist church in America was at Newport, Rhode Island in December 1671.[1] Samuel and Tacy Hubbard, two members of the First Baptist Church of Newport, pastored by John Clarke (1609-1676), withdrew from that church and joined with Stephen Mumford, a Seventh Day Baptist from England, and 4 others, covenanting to meet together for worship, calling themselves Sabbatarian Baptists. Mumford, for his part, arrived in Rhode Island in 1665, and was mentioned as an advocate for seventh-day Sabbath in many records of that time. Other churches rose in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and soon spread north into Connecticut and New York, and south into Virginia and the Carolinas. Seventh-day Sabbatarianism also emerged among the Germans at Ephrata, Pennsylvania, (founded in 1735). Ephrata was incorporated as the German Religious Society of Seventh Day Baptists in 1814, and the site where their community was founded came to be known at the Ephrata Cloister. The Seventh Day Baptist General Conference was organized in 1801." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seventh_Day_Baptist 8/1709

"The study of the Scriptures in America brought Samuel and Tacy Hubbard to the Baptist principle of believer’s baptism in 1647, and membership in the First Baptist Church of Newport, Rhode Island. Beginning in 1665, their family and several others became convinced of the seventh day Sabbath and joined in fellowship with Stephen Mumford and his wife who had held Sabbath convictions while members of a Baptist church in Tewksbury, England. When two couples gave up their Sabbath convictions, the others found it difficult to share communion with them within First Baptist. Thus five members joined with the Mumfords in a covenant relationship, establishing the first Seventh Day Baptist Church in America in December, 1671. Even after this seperation, close fellowship with other Baptists remained." http://www.seventhdaybaptist.org/7DB/A_Choosing_People1_EN.asp?SnID=2 ________________
