Webber and Rice in Okehampton
« on: Sunday 15 August 21 16:36 BST (UK) »
Hi.
I'm new to this site, so hello everyone.
I'm interested in finding information on the Webber and Rice family name, which are my relatives, who come from Okehampton.

Sadly, my nanna and mum are both deceased and there is no-one to ask about my roots. 

All I know is that my nanna was Nora Olive Webber who had my mum in 32 St Bartholomews Street, Exeter in 1944 but my nanna and as far as I know, her parents are all from Okehampton and they had a farm on Dartmoor where my mum lived for the first 4 years of her life  with her grandparents (Webber). My nanna had at least one sibling, a brother but I don't know his name either. My nanna said he made her a train set.

If anyone has any information on this I'd be most grateful to hear from you.

Welcome to Rootschat

Was Webber her married name or maiden name?

If it was her married name - what was her maiden name

When did she die?

Thanks. Rice was my Mum's surname at birth. I'd picked up the name Webber but wasn't sure if that was my nanna's maiden name as I thought her parents were called Webber, so thanks for confirming it was her mum's maiden name.

Found her.  She was born Nora Olive Rice March qtr 1926 Okehampton 5b 502 her mothers maiden name was Webber

She was actually born in December 1925. March 1926 must be the date her birth was registered.
