William Fredrick Webb

William Fredrick Webb b. Sept. 8th 1842 in St. James, District of Clerkenwell, London England.  Married Olive Baker (Webb) February 13, 1873 Howard County Kansas.  William & Olive had children in Kansas but when the land run opened up in Oklahoma for free land they took  there family and moved to Oklahoma and settled near Glencoe, in Payne County.  On the 1890 census for Oklahoma Terr. It list the entire family.  It stated that they had been in Oklahoma for 2 mos.  On the 1900 census it shows Olive in Glencoe with the two youngest children.  Also the 1900 census shows William F. Webb living in Noble County Oklahoma with there son George.  William Immigrated to the US in 1863 and was naturalized in 1864.  The 1910 census shows, William later married Cynthia Strenen (the spelling may be differant, it was hard to make out) b. abt 1864 in Tn.  They married 1908 in Noble County they also lived in Noble County Ok.

William is the son of William Smith Webb & Maria Elvey.  William Smith Webb was baptized on December 1, 1812 at Westminster, St. James of the Fields, A district of London.  His father was Thomas Webb and his mother was Louisa?. 

Maria Elvey was baptized on June 13, 1813 at Stephney, St. Dunston, also a district of London.  Her father was Charles Elvey and her mother was Elizabeth (surname unknown in my records).
Of course, it was customary in England at this time to baptize the children at a very young age, usually within a few weeks or days of birth. 
In the Census Record for 1841, William Smith Webb and his wife Maria, both age 28, were shown still residing at 8 Northampton Building, St. James, Clerkenwell, where William Frederick Webb was born.  They were shown as having 3 children:
    Louisa                    age 4
    Thomas                  age 2
    William Frederick    b. Sept 8 (less than 1 yr old)
William and Maria Webb and their children are not to be found in the 1851 census for St. James, Clerkenwell.  According to the information in our family, William Frederick Webb did not run away from home and become a sailor until he was 12 years old, that would be in 1852 or 1853.  Trying to find the family in the census records for 1851 in some other district of London.
David Arthur Webb, told his children that before William Frederick Webb immigrated to America he went back to London to find his family.  After searching for them unsuccessfully he moved to America.  In the U.S. Census records of the late 1800's and early 1900's he reports that he landed in America in 1860.
