WB Stubbs

Throughout our proud 177-year history, WB Stubbs (Hawksworth) Limited has evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of its customers, while retaining the strong family values that ensure quality remains the byword for our British-made products.

Our well-designed, finely-crafted goods can be found in some of the leading stables around the world, renowned for their trustworthiness from Australia to Zimbabwe.

The STUBBS ENGLAND label is highly-respected world wide and we guard this privilege by continuing to manufacture all our products in the heart of England. Our skills have been honed and passed down through the generations to include welding and fabrication, plastic moulding, sheetmetal, plastic coating and joinery.
Although now well established as a leading equestrian brand, the starting point for what became WB Stubbs was in the making of agricultural implements. The company was established by Thomas Wade, who set up his works in 1836, and what is thought to be his original Hawksworth workshop still exists today, complete with forge.

"The STUBBS ENGLAND label is highly respected worldwide and we guard this privilege by continuing to manufacture all our own products in the heart of England."

Chris Bradwell, Managing Director

THE ROOTS OF OUR BUSINESS

It was almost a century earlier that the Wade family’s synonymous association with Hawksworth began when, in 1732, Thomas Wade of Bingham married Jane Green in Hawksworth church. Their son, William, was a carpenter in the village while his son, also William, was Hawksworth’s village constable for many years, and from 1832 the parish clerk.

The latter William Wade had two sons, John and Thomas. John Wade was a farmer and took over as parish clerk and constable in 1850. His brother, Thomas Wade, was born in 1811 at Hawksworth and in 1835 he married Sarah Stubbs. Thomas trained diligently as an engineer and became an agricultural implement maker and our business’ founding father.

But our story would not be complete without explaining the importance of Sarah Stubbs, from which our brand name was derived. She was born in 1807, probably in Bingham, where her parents had married in 1804. By then, the Stubbs name was well known in south Nottinghamshire and several were respected blacksmiths and carpenters.

When she married, Sarah Stubbs already had a son - William Blount Stubbs, who was born in Bingham in 1834. Wade family tradition has is that Thomas Wade was his father, and certainly Thomas raised William in Hawksworth as his son.

Business soon boomed as Thomas’ drive and enthusiasm ensured our company prospered in its early years. By the census of Hawksworth in 1871, three years before he died, Thomas was described as a blacksmith and machine maker employing three men and two apprentices.
