William married Mary Goulding (aka Atkinson) (Convict, Lady Juliana, 1790) 19 December 1790 at Parramatta.  They had 4 children.

It would appear that the marriage may have broken up because William was in a de facto relationship for some time with Hannah Whitelock (aka Sherwood) (Convict, Admiral Gambier, 1811).
By the 1822 Muster, it is clear that he has children in this relationship. Mary having died in 1820.
Baxter, Carol; 1822 Muster:
Whitlock, Hannah, free by servitude, Friends, 7 years, wife of Wm Hubbard, Sydney
Hubbard, William, free by servitude, Scarborough, 7 years, constable, Sydney
