--------------------

The surname Webster is of ancient English origin, being a trade name, a colloquial term for weaver. The most important English family of this name claims descent from John Webster, who was a resident of Bolsover, Derbyshire, in the reign of Henry IV., and whose descendants are settled in Essex, in which county as well as in Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire Henry IV. granted John Webster large estates about 1400. The Scotch family of Webster, very likely also descended from this John Webster, were in Edinburghshire before 1700, probably not long before that date, however. There is no other family of this surname in Scotland bearing arms, though descendants are found in other sections of the country. The armorial bearings of the Webster family of Edinburgh : Argent

A fesse gules between three crosses crosslet fitchee azure. Crest: The sun rising out of the sea proper.

Motto — Emergo. Of the American families of the surname Webster

There are two important branches. John Webster, who came from Suffolk, England, progenitor of Daniel Webster, is mentioned below. John Webster, from Warwickshire, England, settled in Connecticut and was progenitor of the dictionary genius, Noah Webster. ( I ) John Webster, the immigrant ancestor, was born in England and as early as 1634 was a proprietor and resident of the town of Ipswich, Massachusetts. He seems to be the same John Webster, baker by trade, who was admitted an inhabitant of Salem in 1637 and had a grant of land; who was witness in the Essex court in 1639 and applied for land at the Creek in 1642.

He married Mary Shatswell. sister of John Shatswell, who remembered her in his will. She married second, October 29, 1650, John Emery, Sr., of Newbury, and removed with him to Haverhill. He and his son, John Emery, were appointed guardians of Israel Webster, aged eighteen; and Nathan Webster, aged sixteen, at their request November 26, 1662. The family removed to Newbury from Ipswich. Administration was granted to John Webster's widow Mary, November 4, 1646, and later at her desire division was made to the eight minor children: to the eldest son John the farm, he paying to the youngest son five pounds or quarter of the value of the farm; Mary, Stephen and Hannah to have equal shares in the island, bought of Widow Andrews; Elizabeth, Abigail and Israel to have twenty nobles apiece; all at twenty-one years of age
