A look at the Webbs of Catsfield Part 3

Alices’ brother Isaac married Mary CRUTTENDEN on 10th December 1761 at Catsfield and they had 6 children, Mary born in 1762, Isaac in 1763, William in 1765, Elizabeth in 1767, Joseph in 1769 and Hannah in 1773. Isaac and Mary died within a year of each other and are buried in the churchyard at St Laurence, Catsfield.

As you can see there are only 2 of the children of Isaac and Mary I have found any information on other than their baptismal date. I will primarily focus on Isaac and it is he who stays in the family home and William moves to Sedlescombe where after his marriage to Philadelphia TAYLER in 1786 they have 3 children William, Mary and Joseph.

Isaac marries twice, first a childless marriage to Lucy BATTLEMORE in 1785 and then after she dies in 1812 a second marriage where he is noted as a widow to Mary MARCHANT in 1814. It is from that marriage that they have 5 children: Mary Ann, Sophia, Isaac, Lucy and John.

The first two children Mary Ann and Sophia die within a year of being born and the final 2 children I have found no information on at all. Isaac therefore inherits the house at Henleys Down but dies quite early on with no heirs. This then leads us onto a new WEBB family that must have a connection to this one but it is still unclear where that connection is. Although I have made some suggestions as to the link which sort of make sense with the no heir apparent after Isaac’s death.
