About Sir Henry Alexander Webb, {Fictional}

Not a known child of Sir John Alexander Webb, Jr.


Disputed existence

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:The_Mythical_Ancestry_of_the_Am...

As presented in detail in the profile for Henry Webbe, there was indeed a real Henry Webbe who was gentleman usher to the Privy Chamber of King Henry VIII and his wife Catherine Parr and who, with the aid of a letter written by Catherine Parr on his behalf, acquired the property that later became Burbage's Theatre, at which Shakespeare's troupe performed. However, as discussed in that profile, that Henry Webbe was not known as Henry Alexander, his only known wife was named Barbara, and his only surviving child was a daughter named Susan. No reliable sources has been cited or found that provide any evidence for the existence of any person meeting the description of Sir Henry Webb or Sir Henry Alexander Webb, as a separate person from Henry Webbe, gentleman usher, including no reliable sources that support his parentage, his date of birth, his marriage to a Grace Arden, or his parentage of children named Alexander or Agnes. His purported children, Alexander Webb and Agnes (Hill) Arden, were real people. However, no reliable source has been cited or found that provides credible evidence as to the identity of their parents.


Alexander's parentage is uncertain. A few older unsourced printed family genealogies[2][3] and many modern online Webb family genealogy pages[4][5][6][7] claim that Alexander and his sister Agnes were the children of a Sir Henry Webb and a Grace Arden. However, no reliable evidence has been found for that parentage or even for the existence of a Sir Henry Webb or a Grace Arden who could possibly be Alexander and Agnes's parents.


Date of birth has also been erroneously reported to be December 24, 1534.

Date of death has also been erroneously reported to be 1573.

NOTA BIEN: It has been alleged that this Sir Henry was a baronet, but the Baronetage of England was not formed until May 22, 1611.
