Lynni
I have erred!
Samuel C Weber/Webber (Born c1795 Radstock died c1863 Widcombe) married Sophia MAYS (no information whatsoever. (Possibly daughter of a George & Grace MAYS) at Combe Hay on the 7th May 1819.
Marriage witnessed by Abel Saben (?)
The couple had 8 children, born between 1821 & 1845 in Combe Hay, Widcombe, Radstock, Wellow, Dunkerton & Twerton)
Does this help?

Hi
I'm also looking into the Webber family
Shadrach (Shadrack) son of Son of John & Hester Webber. He is shown living in Camerton in 1851 & 1861 censuses.
In 1871 census he is living in Aspull nr Wigan. He married a widow Elizabeth Kay (formally Seddon), and is step father to 3 children.
He has 3 daughters with Elizabeth- Esther b. 11 June 1871 Clara b. 9 September 1872 and Alice b. 13 December 1873 who only lives 8 months.

It is curious that Esther & Clara are baptised twice in Chapel and Cof E Church!

Elizabeth dies and Shadrach remarries in 1877 - Alice Goulding shown as his wife in the 1881 census with whom he has two sons.

Shadrach as worked as a miner most of his life, except for a couple years his occupation is as a publican when his daughter Ether marries. In the 1901 census he is a colliery underground official. He dies in 1906.

I know his sister Rhoda marries Mark Mitchel Perkins 19 Aug 1866 in Bristol, and has a daughter Eliza born in 1867 (1871 census both in Camerton with her parents)
