His ancestor, John Howland, came to America on the Mayflower in rebellion of the King trading his indentured servitude to Governor John Carver in exchange for his passage.
Verified documents at The New England Historical and Genealogical Register indicate that during the voyage Howland was among the 41 signers of the Mayflower Compact, and in 1624 he married fellow Mayflower passenger Elizabeth Tilley. Mr. Ubaney is among their descendants, along with other notables such as Kevin Bacon, Alec Baldwin, Stephen Baldwin, Humphrey Bogart, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry Cabot Lodge, Christopher Lloyd, Sarah Heath Palin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Dr. Benjamin Spock, Chevy Chase, and John Lithgow
Mr. Ubaney’s tenth grandfather, William Chase, came to America on the Winthrop Fleet in 1630. Their family eventually split over the revolutionary war as half of the family pledged loyalty to the King, while the other half joined the colonial rebellion. This severed the family and would eventually lead to a name change of the Loyalists from Chase to Chace. The family that sided with the rebellion would eventually go on to form the Chase bank / credit card conglomerate. William Chase’s son, Benjamin, would go on to marry a direct descendant of US General William Tecumseh Sherman making Mr. Ubaney cousins with the following list of notables . . .
