William webb
« on: Monday 28 January 19 14:19 GMT (UK) »
Hello, Iíve been looking around and cannot seem to find anything on my ancestor William Webb. Could someone please go back on him a bit. He was born 1716 and died 1790. He was married to an Elizabeth Webb, and was most likely around Hampshire, but Iím not sure for certain. One of his sons was Thomas Webb, born 22 dec 1753, died 10 mar 1793. Thomas was married to Mary glarle and there is a record of him being an innkeeper at the Fox inn in 1784.

Thank you

That is the problem. Most likely the answer to this question would be Hampshire, or anything around it if not that, not sure though.

You say that you don't know where Thomas Webb was born, who he married or where The Fox Inn was, and I'm also assuming you don't know where he died.  BUT you have stated precise dates for baptism and burial, plus the name of his bride, and a year of 1784 for being at the Fox Inn - so, simple question, where did you get these precise dates from? 

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
Archbell - anywhere, any date
Kendall - WRY
Milner - WRY
Appleyard - WRY

I think we need to look at this from a different angle, where do you have your Webbs on the 1841/51 census and who are they

OK, I've found the tree, at least I think I have.   :-\  And I would, personally, have my doubts about some of the information.  :-[

I'd agree with rosie99, that a different approach is preferable.

There is a Joseph Webb born 1819 died 1898 who should be on there. He married Martha and Louisa Gear who were sisters, and was a butcher living in romsey, Hampshire.

Thank you

Could you send me a link to the tree or give me something to be able to view it? Or possibly give me the information I have requested on there? Again, thank you.
