John bapt-cicra 1765
*Henry C Webb 1791,Brington,Northampton
John Webb 1793,Brington,Northampton
Simon Webb 1794 Brington,Northampton
William Webb 1798 Brington, Northampton
During my search of the Northampton areas of Brington,Denford & Titchmarsh, I have discovered the Webb name is very popular,although the Villages seem to be rather small during the 1700s-1800s. The villages seem very beautiful. it is Interesting to think also that most likely found the relatives of these towns may have been Shoe makers or possibly farmers. Farming has been something that has run down our line.
HENRY WEBB AND HANNAH STUBBS
Henry Webb 1791 Brington,Married Hannah Stubbs 1887 at Denford
Henry was buried 1865,Titchmarsh. his occupation may have been a gardner & labourer. Hannah died 1853 at Titchmarsh. In 1841 Henry and Hannah were living at Islington,Titchmarsh, henry was an Agricultural labourer. In 1855 Henry re-married a Mary ? it has been suggested she came from Lowick. By 1861 Henry was 70yrs and was working as a Gardener and Parish Sexton(what is a parish Sexton)it has been suggested to my that a sexton is a grave digger for the church.. if this is true, then it would be interesting to know that line has also continued as two generations of Webb's in New Zealand have been undertakers (funeral Directors)

Martha Webb married a Brian Desbourgh, John Webb is my line of Grandparents, he married a Rebecca Branson, in Titchmarsh.both John and Rebecca Immigrated to Australia.. (most of the history is known from John down. Most of the webb family down from john webb have been land owners,or lived in rural areas.They have had big families at least 5+ children. Their have been a huge number of Girls born to a family. most of the wives have outlived the Webb males and respetory illness seems prominant with the webb families. it will be an interesting journey to discover who and what has become of the other brothers and sisters of both Henry Webb and where his Parents John Webb and Anne Dicks Came from, and how biggar family they had..
