Richard Webb of Gloucestershire, England

Richard Webb was born 1603 in Gloucestershire, England. Belief that Richard was the immigrant ancestor of this Webb Family comes from an obscure reference to his being "transported" to Virginia. Other that that, nothing further is known. From this reference, Richard would have immigrated before 2/1662. This timeframe places Richard in the class of immigrants who migrated to the New World in search of opportunity.
