After the arrival of the Scindian at Fremantle Captain Henderson wrote a report listing the rank name, trade or calling, rate of pension, date of enlistment for 5 months service, marital status, and number of children for each pensioner. Sometimes the trade of calling differed from that recorded at the time of attestation:
Private John Hubble, general labourer, 6d, 21st January, single
John Hubble was one of the pensioners assigned a 5 acre block at South Perth. The heavily timbered land was only accessible by river and proved too isolated to be a success, after the firewood supply business organised by Captain Bruce proved a failure all the allotments were resumed.
John Hubble arrived in the Colony as a single man; however, he formed an attachment with Jane Hunt the wife of Pensioner James Hunt RM. The couple had 8 children 2 of which died in early childhood.
In 1851 Jane Hunt, John Hubble and James Hunt gave evidence in the trial of James Rudge they all appeared to be on friendly terms
In 1857 John wrote to the Colonial Secretary requesting monetary assistance as he was nearly blind and unable to work. In 1862 he again requested assistance as his pension of 6d per day was insufficient. The resident magistrate reported his partner Jane Hunt had supported them but due to the depressed times had been thrown out of work. He had allowed the family 1/6 per day until further notice. The Colonial Secretary extended the allowance for a short period and said they could then be admitted into the Poor house.
11th May 1876 Application for admittance to Poor House. John Hubble was admitted to the Poor house Mt. Eliza in February 1877.
Jane married Philip THACKER at York on 26th June 1878
