No, sorry.  And I might also need a lot more confirmation regarding Thomas Webb and Mary Gearle - if this was my family tree.   :-\

I am 99% sure this is my family, its on a tree that my Uncle made, where he put in months of research. So I take it the family tree that was found on ancestry was the wrong one?

I'm sure that your uncle put in a lot of work - I'm not disputing that.  The tree on Ancestry, again I have no knowledge of the owner's research.

But what I am querying, and IMO it needs confirmation from original parish records, is the fact that:

Thomas Webb and Mary Gearle marry in 1777 in Nether Wallop but then we have two separate families (both with parents of Thomas and Mary) producing children in the same timescale in both Nether Wallop and Romsey. 

And you say that your uncle has cited the Romsey records in preference to the Nether Wallop records - he must have had a reason.  In my own family histories I had a number of Thomas and Mary combinations, and it took a lot of work to sort them all out.

They did not have a Joseph, Susanna or Stephen for certain, not sure about the others. It is probably the family from romsey.

Which would eliminate the Mary Gearle marriage

A faint possibility  :-\

There is a marriage - All Saints, Southampton - 22 February 1781 - Thomas Webb and Mary Redman, both of this parish by Banns.

I cannot see any baptisms of children of Thomas and Mary in Southampton.  Romsey is about 10 miles from Southampton.

That sounds reasonable -  The alternative marriage already suggested in Nether Wallop would have been further than 10 miles from Romsey.

Could be possible yes, i am just going by what it says on the tree.
