Families covered: Webb of Canford, Webb of Hatherop, Webb(e) of New Sarum, Webb of Motcombe, Webb of Odstock, Webb of Pain's Place

(1) BLG1894 reports that "This family is paternally descended from the ancient family of Caillow or Killohie, which is said to be of Celtic origin. ... The earliest known member of the family was John Webbe, a wealthy merchant in Wiltshire, b. about 1400."
(2) For several years we left the top section (and the descendants of William's son John) on a Draft page as we were not convinced that the William who is the first mentioned by BLG1952 was the same person as the William shown just below as son of John & Johan. A review of the position in 2015, when the other marriages of William's wife Joan were confirmed, has given us confidence that they were probably the same person although we remain suspicious of some of the dates shown in the upper section.
