John WEBB Victoria
« on: Thursday 11 June 15 20:22 BST (UK) »
John WEBB and his family, Mary Ann and 8 children left England sometime after 1856. He apparently died in Fitzroy in 1871 age 59

Any info on when,and on which ship, they arrived would be of interest. As would confirmation of his father's name - should be James.

Do you have the names of the children and approximate ages. There are quite a few John WEBB'S?

There is a will online for a John WEBB who died in 1871 in Victoria  http://prov.vic.gov.au/

He was a butcher, at a quick glance I can't see any reference to Mary or the children - perhaps it is not him.   But I am having internet problems and didn't read it thoroughly.

regards
   Ros

adding : There is another John WEBB who died in Victoria in 1871 who was born about 1816.   No parents given, age 55 reg 4154.  Perhaps the will is for him.

Also a possible sighting of a part of the family on a passenger list August 1857.
The Clipper Ship Eastern City out of Liverpool.
Passengers are Mary A 44yrs, Jas thos Adult, Francis Adult, john 17, Chas 9, Walter 1.

If these are a part of the family then John and several others may have travelled separately.
