Roy St. George Stubbs, born in 1907, to Mary and Lewis St. George Stubbs. Lewis was born in the Turks and Caicos Islands and came to Manitoba after service in the South African War. Lewis was also a lawyer and is well remembered as an outspoken judge of the County Court and Surrogate Court, social critic and reformer, and long-time independent Member of the Legislative Assembly.

He received his law degree and was called to the Bar and admitted as a solicitor in 1936. He practiced law with his father and brothers, save for wartime years in which he served in England and India with the RCAF, when he became a Squadron Leader and had occasion to employ his legal knowledge in several courts martial. In 1970, he was appointed Senior Judge of the Winnipeg Family and Juvenile Court and served in that office until his retirement in 1977.
Roy St. George Stubbs was prolific writer having written over 35 biographical sketches for various law journals, 100 newspapers, and wrote in excess over 100 book reviews.
