  • The Christopher Webb Family of Devonshire, England & Braintree, Massachusetts Bay My personal resarch journal on the family of Christopher Webb who emigrated from Devonshire, England to Briantree in the Massachusetts Bay Colony about 1640. The research documents multiple lines to 2003, and is known for its well documented and independent style. It contains my extensively documented original research on Christopher Webb of Braintree (1630-1694), one of the first bar-qualified Attornies in colonial America. My research helped legitimize the Revolutionary War service of a previously un-recognized Patriot, Dariuis Webb of Hampshire County, Massachusetts (1762-1828). He has been recently accepted as a Patriot on the rolls of the Sons of the American Revolution (2005) and the Daughters of the American Revolution (2007) based solely on my original findings. COMING SOON - Contact me to perform research on this surname.
