I too have a WEBB. My line is John, the planter, and wife Sarah. Their son is Chesley Webb and a John Byars Webb. Chesley was born 02 January 1772. His father, John, was born abt. 1740. I found my first record of John in 1767 where he received land in Mecklenburgh. (Record- Colony of NC-Abstracts of Land # 6360, page 179). This land was sold to Hugh Quin of Tryon County and this record again list John as a planter from Orange County, NC. (Record - Land Records, July term, 1769 p 43 and 44.) John Webb is found in the 1782 tax list of Rutherford County, NC. He is also listed as a torie along with William Sr. and Benjamin in court Record of 1782 - The State of NC vs. Rutherford County. This document names the men of Rutherford County, that would not take the oath of allegiance to the State and therefore were named Tories. William and John appear in court to answer the charge of treason at a later court hearing. In 1790 Rutherford County, Morgan Company, Rutherford County, John is found with 3 sons and 3 daughters. John and William were both over 45 years of age on the 1800 Census. Could William,Benjamin and John be brothers? I have seen some researchers trying to put this John with a William Webb and a Jane Martin. But so far I have found absolutely no proof that this John could be connected to Willian and Jane Martin Webb. There was an older William Webb in Rutherford about 1727. I also have this on John Webb. John Webb lived on the Broad River. He and Sarah were members of the Sandy Run Primitive Church. The Roberts, Byars, Blackwells and Womacks are families associated with these Webbs and all these families are from Granville County, NC....I think if we all pull together and really search these things out we can either prove that he was connected or he isn't. If you have anything that can give weight to this connection(document, bible records, land deeds, court records etc....), PLEASE share with us all.
