Born near Farmville, Virginia, Hubard attended private schools as a child and went on to attend the University of Virginia. He engaged in agricultural pursuits and was a justice of the peace before being elected a Democrat to the United States House of Representatives in 1840, serving from 1841 to 1847. Hubard was not a candidate for reelection in 1846 and instead resumed engagements in agricultural pursuits. During the Civil War, he served as colonel of a militia regiment in 1864 and was an appraiser of the Confederate States Government to regulate the value of the Confederate dollar. Hubard died at his home near Farmville, Virginia on December 9, 1878 and was interned in the family cemetery near the home.
