Elizabeth Webb

Postby Norfolk Nan » Tue Feb 11, 2020 3:18 pm

Elizabeth Webb was baptised in 19.11.1818 in Eastham, Worcestershire, parents Richard and Elizabeth. Try as I might, I can't find anything more regarding her birth family. I have her in London in 1841 as a single female servant and in 1845 she marries and the rest is easily documented. Can any one provide a clue to her birth family please? :D

Worcester Journal, 27 January 1842 (also Worcester Herald 22 January 1842)
Can't see it now, but can give you the ocr text
Some new premiums were offered for the ensuing year by persons residing in the neighbourhood. The prizes for the past year were awarded follows :— Class To labourers of good character who have by their own industry brought up the largest family without parochial relief, except in cases of illness.
First prize of I/, to Richard Webb, of Orleton, who had reared ten legitimate children, and only received five shillings in parochial relief during severe illness six weeks. He had lived with the same master, Mr. Davis, Orleton, 32 years.

And in 1846, I can get hold of this one in the Worcester Chronicle, so will attach it.
Worcestershire Agricultural Association
Annual Meeting. All sorts of things going on, ploughing matches, etc. Richard wins a prize again.

Presuming that it is our (or your) Richard who had the ten or eleven legitimate children, the first may perhaps have been Ann, baptized at Lindridge, 14 Oct 1814

If she is the Ann Spence in the house in 1841, I may have got her age wrong! But I don't know.
