Isabel Grubb


An early reference to the families connection with the dairy industry is referenced in “Quaker Homespuns,” first published in 1932 by Isabel Grubb, which recounts that a certain Benjamin Grubb who traded as a butter merchant was robbed of his wealth by a highwayman on his return from the butter market in Cork. The interesting twist to this story is that no charges were pressed and Ben Grubb was repaid this “loan” in the form of a long string of carts all containing butter some time afterwards.
