Charles Edwin Webb India help
« on: Tuesday 15 January 19 20:27 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone

I have a couple named Charles Edwin Webb and Alice May (unsure of maiden name) with several kids born in India.

All their kids were born in West Bengal/Jhansi area and Alice May died in 1934 and was buried on 12 Dec 1934 Jhansi, Bengal, India.

I cannot find a marriage for Charles and Alice but I have seen a picture of one of the kids and she has a very Indian look so I'm guessing one of the parents was of Indian descent.

I believe Charles worked for the Great Indian Peninsular Railway.

Can anybody help me locate details on Charles and Alice please?

I don't have a death for Charles either.

Many thanks

Dan Wilson

You probably have this record already but just to give us an idea of birth years and age - this might help0 people searching...........

The India Death record tells us Alice May Webb was born 1884 - aged 50 years when she passed away

Hi Sandra

Yes this is my lot. All the children moved to the UK and married etc but it seems the parents did not.

Ahhh fantastic. That daughter's name is actually Winifred Helen Dorothy Webb and her husband is Cyril Hutfield. Probably one of the reasons I have not been able to find a marriage or birth for her is down to the name difference.

Thank you Sandra.

The marriage of Charles and Alice should be prior to the birth of the first daughter who seems to be Anna in 1907

I have searched for a marriage between a Charles Webb and Alice May but to no avail. I was hoping that if I could obtain a birth certificate for one of the children it would give me the maiden name.

Also details of Charles working in India or even a death but again to no avail.
