Yes, the Clubb family in NC was certainly German, since they lived in a German community, and intermarried and migrated with a number of other German families, and you are correct that spelling doesn't count when it comes to last names in Colonial America.
Ms. Eaker has published a book about many of the NC families, which is in many research libraries. In it, she cites original source documents such as wills and marriage records and which county those records are found in. This is very useful to researchers to show them which courthouse they can write to in order to request copies of the original documents for the ancestors they are interested in. The pedigrees that are compiled in the book include many tentative attachments, and many that are just not known. There is a lot that remains unproven. In fact, at the time Ms. Eaker published the book, she could not prove who the immigrant Clubb might be, but she noted that there was a Peter Klop on the ship Lydia in 1741 to PA saying that he was: "just a possibility". It is just as possible that the Clubb family may have come to PA prior to 1727 and thus there is no ship's passenger list recording their arrival. There is much work to be done. As with any book, there are also some mistakes. In some cases, there were conclusions made based on limited records. Consulting other records has proven some of the original conclusions to be in error. I have found this to be true with the Chronister family (also in NC) and some others. That is why it's best to order the original documents for the people in your particular family line.
There were a number of men named Peter Clubb. If you can give me the approximate dates of birth and death for the Peter that you are interested in, I'll see if I have anything. I have looked at records for a number of Lincoln Co. NC families in hopes of finding more information and possible attachments to the Chronister family, which is my primary interest.
