HistoryEdit

The village was first mentioned in 1408 as Jobbegae, and means village of Jobbe (person).[4] The village has merged into neighbouring Schurega, and used to be called Jubbega-Schurega. The Dutch Reformed Church dates from 1715 and the tower is from 1910.[5] In 1774, a new sluice was constructed for the peat excavation and a little settlement developed around the sluice. In 1840, Jubbega-Schurega was home to 203 people. In 1974, the name was changed to Jubbega.[6]

Before 1934, Jubbega was part of the Schoterland municipality.[6]
