John Webb, d: 1726, Henrico Co VA

John Webb, d: 1726, Henrico Co VA

Surnames: Webb Carter
I have been working on the family of John Webb (1664-1726) of Henrico County, Virginia, married to Sarah Cocke. The spelling of Sarah's original surname could have been Cocke, Cocks, Cockes or Cox.


Below is what I have so far. It is likely that some of this is incorrect. Comments, corrections, or additions are welcome.


I think this is his Will:


1725-1737/29 John Weeb will, dated 6 Jul 1725, recorded 6 Jun 1726. Son John, grandson William. Wit: Theodorick Carter, Elizabeth Carter


I don't know the parents of his grandson William. The Will doesn't say William Webb. It just says William so William could be a grandson by one of John's daughters.


Daughter Jane Webb died young. Does anyone know what happened to the other two daughters; Elizabeth and Mary? There has been speculation that his daughter Elizabeth was the wife of Theodorick Carter but that seems unlikely as that would indicate that her daughter married her brother. It is unusual for an uncle and niece to marry.


Could the John Webb, son of John Webb and Mary Martin, be the John Webb who married Elizabeth Bybee, daughter of Thomas & Elizabeth Bybee?
