Greetings, My great-grandfather is Charles Levi Webb. His son, William George, emigrated to Canada (to visit an uncle in Strathcona?). He married Violet Gerow in Ontario and had one child, Marian, my mother. Does anyone have access to photos of Charles, Emily (who I believe visited Canada) or the family? Thanks, Carolyn
Charles Levi Webb was my great grandfather – he married Emily Cable and they had six children and liveed in Hastings where he worked as a blacksmith. He was well known in the Old Town of Hastings.The loss of two of his sons in the Great War contributed to his death. His wife died in 1941.I have photos of him and of Mary Pilbeam his mother and one of her sisters.
John Webb married Sarah Hiscock in 1796 at Whatlington. The only baptism I can find for John is on March 3rd 1765, which would make him about 30 at his marriage. His parents are named as John and Ann Webb. Going back another generation I found a John Webb marrying an Ann Cornes about 1758 possibly at Etchingham or Hamsey? This John was
born in Lewes in 1717 and died in 1797. His parents were Richard Webb and Ann Haines.
All this came from I.G.I. and sounds to good to be true. Can you verify any of this info. before I waste time chasing the wrong family? Thank you
I have not managed to track down the birth/baptism records of John Webb. I have a burial for John Webb that is likely to be him for 18 Feb 1835 in Catsfield aged 62 which puts his birth around 1773 which would rule him out of being the John Webb son of John and Anne.
I have tracked back the family you mentioned and have an open tree on Ancestry called ‘Catsfield Webbs’ that has their history.
Forgot that I have that family tree on the website as well, here is the link.
Do you have any history on EDWARDS / COLEMAN families who lived in Burwash area. One of them ran a tavern in Burwash (I think it was James EDWARDS – not 100% sure). The family also had a farm called GREENMAN FARM, which I believe used to be an inn in the 1400’s!!
Not going to be of much help I am afraid. I cannot see anything much about the families you mentioned from 1800 onwards and I don’t have much material from dates previous to that. I cannot find any references to Greenman Inn or farm, there is mention of Green Hill Farm in the 15th century.
There was a Rev Richard Swinfer Edwards that opened a school in Burwash in 1761.
Was there anyone in particular you were looking for?
