Etymology[edit]

From hypothetical Old English root *grubbian, from Proto-Germanic *grubb- (compare Old High German grubilōn (to dig, search), German grübeln (to meditate, ponder)), from Proto-Germanic *grub- (to dig). The noun sense of "larva" (c.1400) may derive from the notion of "digging insect" or from the possibly unrelated Middle English grub (dwarfish fellow). The slang sense of "food" is first recorded 1659, has been linked with birds eating grubs or with bub (drink)."

    • 1898, J. Meade Falkner, Moonfleet Chapter 4
      Yet there was no time to be lost if I was ever to get out alive, and so I groped with my hands against the side of the grave until I made out the bottom edge of the slab, and then fell to grubbing beneath it with my fingers. But the earth, which the day before had looked light and loamy to the eye, was stiff and hard enough when one came to tackle it with naked hands, and in an hour's time I had done little more than further weary myself and bruise my fingers.
