About George Hubble

  • George Yorke Hubble (28 November 1858 – 22 March 1906) was an Australian politician who was a member of the Legislative Assembly of Western Australia from 1897 to 1901 (excluding a brief gap in 1899), representing the seat of Gascoyne. Hubble was born in Bendigo, Victoria, where his father had arrived during the Victorian gold rush.
  • He came to Western Australia in the 1880s, initially living in the South West, but by 1890 was a merchant in Fremantle.
  • Hubble eventually went into partnership with David Symon (another MP), establishing the firm Symon, Hammond, & Hubble.
  • In 1896, he moved to Carnarvon (the largest town in the Gascoyne region), where he opened a general store.
  • Hubble was elected to parliament at the 1897 general election, replacing the retiring Robert Sholl.
  • However, in June 1899, he was declared bankrupt, meaning he had to resign his seat.
  • He was re-elected unopposed at the resulting by-election, but chose not to re-contest his seat at the 1901 general election.
  • Hubble left Carnarvon in 1903 to live in Perth.
  • He died in East Perth in March 1906, aged 47, having committed suicide by cutting his neck with a razor.
  • Hubble had married twice, and had one son by his first wife, who was a daughter of William Silas Pearse.
