The Village of Ubly was first known as Sidon, being north of Tyre as in the Bible. Later it was called Pagetts Corners after Mr. Alfred Pagett who erected a general merchandise store at the west end in April 1870 which was destroyed by the fire of 1881. In 1880 a number of men met to talk over applying for a local post office. Those present wanted to call it Pagettville but Mr. Pagett declined and suggested Ubley, after a little town he knew back in England. When the application came back, whoever had filled in that part in Washington had spelled it Ubly.
