Any connection to Connecticut? Colonial Gov. John Webster had several children, all born in England. They left Leicester went to Mass, then settled in Hartford Connecticut. Yes, he had a son named Thomas. That's the line my family comes from. Do you know about the Genealogy book for Gov.Webster that has all the children's lines listed up to about 1900. It was published about 1915. That's the book my great grandparents are listed in..
