James Kidd & Elizabeth Webb, central Virginia
Posted by: Holly Hampton (ID *****3225) Date: June 10, 2011 at 09:07:45
  of 3496


I'm trying to identify the parents of the Elizabeth Webb who was married to James Kidd (born March 27, 1716 in Middlesex County, Virginia to William and Margaret Kidd). So far I have seen two different claims made:


Northumberland County, Virginia - Born: September 18, 1714, daughter of Thomas and Charity Webb

King and Queen County, Virginia - Born: August 21, 1718, daughter of James Webb and Frances Herbert


At various times, both of the above women have been claimed as the wife of James Kidd.


I also have these two records:


1746 12 Jan. Goochland Co.
Wintworth Webb is deeded 725 a land on Bear Garden Creek. Patents 25, 1745-47, p. 492, mentions John Southern, William Phelps, George Carrington, John Glazdo??, Hugh Moor, Joseph Dabbs and William Webb.


Albemarle VA DB1 p 127, 14 Nov 1749
Wm Webb to John Southern for Lb 15, 325 acres on a branch of Bear Garden Ck adj. Wm. Phelps, grantee, where he lives, part of a patent of Wentworth Webb, decd, Mar 1, 1747.



It has been reported that John Southern was the husband of Margaret Kidd, older sister of the James Kidd married to Elizabeth Webb.


I think is it more likely that James Kidd married a woman from a Webb family in the area where he lived than a woman from Northumberland County or King and Queen County. That is, I am skeptical of both of the above claims.


There were at least three men in this family who were given the name Webb Kidd.


1 William Kidd (of Middlesex Co., VA)
...+ Margaret {Kidd}
......2 Margaret Kidd b: ~1702
.........+ John Southern
......2 James Kidd, Sr. b: 27 Mar 1716
.........+ Elizabeth Webb
............3 James Kidd, Jr.
...............+ Mary Addaman
..................4 William Kidd
.....................+ Judith Carter
........................5 Webb Kidd, 3rd
...........................+ Malinda Kidd
...........................+ Mary Jane Borders
............3 Webb Kidd, Sr.
...............+ Elizabeth White
..................4 Webb Kidd, Jr.
.....................+ Rebecca Allen



I would be interested in hearing from other researchers with information on this Webb-Kidd connection.
