1555 ca1610 ca
an English pamphleteer. He was from Cheshire, possibly the area near Congleton. According to Anthony Wood he was educated at Cambridge and subsequently at Oxford, but did not take a degree and his name is not in university records. He is reputed to have been a brother or near relation of John Stubbs. He married Katherine Emmes (1570/71 –1590) in 1586. He started writing about 1581 and in 1583 published his best-known work, The Anatomie of Abuses. This consisted of a virulent attack on the manners, customs, amusements and fashions of the period including the theatre, gambling, alcohol and fashion, and is still valuable for its copious information on the cultural attitudes of the time.
