Hi Grahame,

I am not related to the Westburys at all. I am in Australia though!

Rootschat is a community of helpful people from all over the World.

The info I found on John Westbury and Parents was from records available on-line.

Capetown found you records on Ancestry and Shume (Stephanie) Australian records.

Hi Trish1120
Thank you so much for all the help, I really appreciate it. I am also thankful to Capetown and Shume (Stephanie) for both your input too.  Are either of you part of the Westbury family?
The way I accidentally came upon this site, I was following a guy, Nick Westbury, who placed posts maybe 8 years ago looking for any info on the Westbury family. Nick was looking around 1400s especially Lord Westbury MP and legal reformer 1457/8 who is quoted for his judgement to law student even today.  But it seems his name was taken up from peerage records and was not a Westbury through his genealogy records. As I am new to the Family Tree research I need to now go through all this a see if I can make sense of it and then find out what is my next logical step.
Starting with an old newspaper is not always the best place to start as you find, as I have, the errors you assumed were facts.
Thanks again to all of you for this great assistance.
Kind regards
Grahame

Go over it all and make up a chart (Family Tree) and if you need any help just add it to this query in the future.

Thanks Trish,
That is what I plan to do, again I really appreciate your help. 
As this is my first family search attempt I am very happy where I have come to, even though it is totally not what I expected or have been told through family conversations with older aunts when I was very young, and that is a long, long time ago.
Initially I tried using Ancestry.com and paid for a search of my family history and what came back was totally incorrect and had nothing to do with my family, so I have not ventured into that site again. Anyway I will get to it!
Kind regards
Grahame
