From the previous thread-

......... His presumed son John & his wife Mary were to be found at Clarence Grove, Saint Pancras with 6 children including Frederick & Agnes both born Spitalfields. John's birthplace was given as St Leonard's Shoreditch.
This family of John Webb & Mary Ann Amelia Belcher then emigrated to Victoria ........


This death would appear to be a son.

WEBB Henry
Father John
Mother Mary Ann BELCHER
Age 26
Birth Place LONDON
Year1877
Reg   696

This SEEMS to be the death notice for the above man.

There is only one man on the death  index named Henry WEBB, aged 26/7  dying 1877

Had you thought they were a newspaper publishing family?

Mmmm..
Not sure if the provider of the information for the obituary may have tangled the lives of father John WEBB and son Sydney John WEBB.

He seems to have been born around 1844, so would have been young to be employed by a newspaper in 1854ish!

This link to the family tree you posted Petros,

http://120.146.218.227/TNG/getperson.php?personID=I03397&tree=HillbrickTree1


Have you based most of your research into the family on this?

There seem to be no certificates shown in support of the tree.

Are you certain you have the correct  John WEBB and Mary Ann WEBB?

Many thanks all. Ros' contributions nail it and, fortuitously, also give his mother's maiden name.
