About William Richmond-Webb
From the Early Richmonds page:
William de Richmond - The Herald's Visitation, 1681-1683, lists William as being of Yorkshire in the early 1400's.
About 1430, he married Alice, daughter and heiress of Thomas Webb of Draycott, Wiltshire. Alice's mother, Elizabeth, was the daughter of Richard Nicholas and Jane. Jane's father was Nicholas St. John of Wiltshire. Upon his marriage, William Richmond assumed the name of Webb and quartered the Webb arms with his own.
This procedure often was followed by Englishmen who married women inheriting more lands than the men possessed. The prime reason for assuming a wife's arms and name was to ensure that children of the marriage would have clear title to the estates coming from their mother's family.
William and Alice Richmond-Webb lived at Draycott, Wiltshire.
