Did Robert Hubbard and Margaret Kevell have a daughter named Elizabeth?

Elizabeth Hubbard who married Thomas Bottom in Virginia in 1660 is said to be the daughter of Robert Hubbard and Margaret Kevell. Various family trees on the internet list her as their daughter but I cannot find any independent verification. Does anyone know if this is true or if not who might be her parents?

National Trust research program

On 15 March 2010, an article by Andy Bloxhan was published in the Telegraph am titled "How Posh Do You Think Yor Are Research Launched". The article referred to a research program backed by the National Trust. The program will document the family trees of those peolple who were residents of some 350 stately homes. In the article it sounded as if these family trees would be available at the homes for visitors to use. Since I am one of those attempting to validate a connection between Robert Hubbard and Sir Henry Hobart, I wonder if the project has been completed at Blicking Manor? If not, can you comment on when it may be comppleted and if it will be of value in providing me the answer I seek? Thank you very much for any assistance you can give. Frank Hubbard
