About Sir Alexander Webb, Jr., Kt.

Stirnet's "Webb03" page (membership required to view without interruption) does not mention this Sir Alexander's issue.

Alexander Webb, Jr. was born 20 Aug 1559 at Stratford, Warwickshire, England. He died in Boston, Massachusetts. (n.b. This seems unlikely if he did got to Connecticut.)

Parents: Alexander Webb, Sr. and Margaret Arden.

Marriage 1: Mary Wilson (daughter of Thomas Wilson) abt. 1589 in Stratford, Warwickshire, England.

Children of Mary Wilson and Alexander Webb:

1. Richard (1580-1656) m. 1: Grace Wilson. m. 2: Elizabeth Gregory.

2. William Micajah "The Merchant of Virginia" (1582-?)

3. Elizabeth (1585-1635) m. John Sanford, Sr.

4. John (1597-1660)

5. Christopher (1599-1671) m. Humility Wheaton.

6. Henry "The Merchant of Boston" (1601-1671) m. 1: Hannah Scott. m. 2: Docibel Smith.


Alexander & Mary (Wilson) Webb had six children;

Richard Webb b. 5 May 1580, William Micajah b. 9 Sep 1582, Elizabeth Webb b, 3 Sep 1585, John Webb b. 23 Oct 1597, Christopher b.15 Apr 1599, Henry Webb b. Oct 1602

Some gnealogist and family historians think that Alexander and His sons came to America in the early seventheen century. Richard, the elder son setteled in connecticut early in the seventh century, and is lickly the progenerator of the northern line of Webb family.

Alexander Jr. came to america, and so did four of his sons. This was the beginning of the great WEBB family in the United States.

In 1626, the first Webb immigrants came to America. The move was likely to be motivated by sons in the family since the parents, Alexander Webb Jr. and wife Mary Wilson, would have been in their 60s at the time of immigration. There is disagreement in historical records over whether Alexander and Mary stayed in England or emigrated to the United States. The move involved an extended family--sons and daughters of Alexander Webb and Mary Wilson in their 40s and grandkids in their teens. Members of the immigrant family included sons William, Christopher, Henry, and Richard, and daughter Elizabeth. Another son, John, remained in England, possibly to look after the affairs of the remains of the family land holdings in England. This son John came to America in 1636 and historical records indicate he came as a member of the military, which would indicate that he came as part of the British military sent to ensure compliance of the colonies to British rule. As we will see, this could have been a very interesting situation, since other members of the family became an integral part of the Revolutionary War effort.

   Alexander Webb Jr married Mary Wilson and came to America with four sons: Christopher, Richard, John and William. This was the beginning of the WEBB family in America.

Elizabeth (1600-<1612) 6. Henry (12 Oct 1601-__ Jun 1671) The gaps between births of ch. #1 & 2, and ch. #2 & 3, suggests other wives. ∼ Conflicting information exists about when the progenitor of the Family Webb of Braintree arrived in America.

"The Webb Family" - James M. McSweeney: In 1626, Richard, William, Christopher and Henry came to American without Alexander III.

"Webb Genealogies from 1350" - James B. Webb - 1913: The family of Webb of Braintree, Suffolk Co, MA originated from Metcombe, Dorsetshire, England. Alexander Webb III and four of his sons (Richard, William, Christopher and Henry) came to America in 1629. Alexander Webb III and two of his sons (Richard and William) came to America in 1629. Henry joined his brothers in 1640. Christopher Webb came to America in 1645 (Lawrence Webb says this is not correct)

per Lawrence Webb: Christopher Webb and his family, except Mary who was born in Boston in 1636, came to America about 1635.
