There is a marriage of John Webster January Quarter 1874 but unfortunately at the moment I haven't found the name of the wife yet.  It is a possible though - the marriage took place in Atherstone and you will see that Elizabeth, John and Catherine's eldest child, Elizabeth,  was born in 1874.

Will post again if/when I find any further info.

Here we go!

FreeBMD gives:

March 1874
John Webster, Atherstone, married Catherine Brindley  (Ref 6d 439)

Ask  me another...... ;D

Now according to FreeBMD:

Alfred James Webster was born at Atherstone in the June Quarter 1889

He married in the December Quarter 1911 at Atherstone either Dorothy G Price OR Mary E Webster.
If it was the latter, he might have married a cousin.  Don't know if you are familiar with FreeBMD but it gives the names of the brides and grooms but doesn't say who belonged to whom....

Hi Greensleeves,

Karen has just informed me that Alfred J Webster married someone who was known as "Aunty May".

Any ideas which name this could be shortened from?

Karen,

looking at the marriages that Greensleeves has found, could you mean "Aunty Mary"?
