Born about 1575, based on date of marriage. Came from Hingham, Norfolk to Charlestown MA in 1633. (An Edmund Hobart, son of Thomas & Hellena Hubbard, was baptized at Snoring Magna, Norfolk, on 1 Jan 1573. This would be about the right year of birth for the immigrant, & the immigrant did name a son Thomas, but Snoring Magna is some distance from Hingham in Norfolk, so further evidence would be welcome.)
Removed to Hingham in 1635. Died there, 8 March 1646[/7] "father Hubbeard died."
Married (1) to Margaret Dewey in Hingham, Norfolk, England, 7 September 1600 . She died before October 1634 when her husband remarried. They had ten children in Hingham, Norfork, England. It is not certain that she survived to come to New England, especially since she did not join the Charlestown church with her husband on 19 October 1633.
Married (2) in Charlestown 10 October 1634, Sarah (_____) (Lyford) Oakley, born about 1586 (deposed 1 August 1639 aged "about fifty-three years," widow of Rev. JOHN LYFORD . She died Hingham 23 June 1649 ("mother Hobart died in the evening being Saturday, buried on the Sabbath"). (Edmund Hobart was guardian to the children of his second wife, and was otherwise involved in securing their inheritance from their father.)

Find A Grave contributor Darrel Salisbury adds:
Snoring Magna (Great Snoring) is c 20 mi. N of Hingham, Attleborough is c 4 mi. S of Hingham. There is a Little Snoring, c. 2 mi. S of Great Snoring. These communities were prob. closer together in the 17th century than they are on today's road maps.

FINDaGRAVE contributor Michael Dolan adds:
Looking at the actual Snoring Magna records however (online: http://www.the-snorings.co.uk/bmd/GS/marriages/GSmarriages_one.html) or at "The Visitation of Norfolk 1563.." (attached below) the actual name of the person recorded baptized on this date is EDWARD Hubbard (not Edmund). It has been stated many times that this was simply a transcription error, but I don't think so. The same name Edward Hubbard appears above in "Marriages", as married in 1604 to Anne, and four of their children are shown below as being baptized from 1605 to 1616. It seems very unlikely that Edward was Edmund.
