The surname Webster is of
WFBSTER ancient English origin, being

a trade name, a colloquial
term for weaver. The most important Eng-
lish family of this name claims descent from
John Webster who was a resident of Bolsover,
Derbyshire, in the reign of Henry IV. and
whose descendants are settled in Essex, in
which county as well as in Cambridgeshire and
Huntingdonshire, Henry IV granted John
Webster large estates about 1400. The Scotch
family of Webster, very likely also descended
from this John Webster, were in Edinburg-
shire before 1700, probably not long before
that date, however. There is no other family
of this surname in Scotland bearing arms,
though descendants are found in other sections
of the country. The armorial bearings of the
Webster family of Edinburg: Argent a fesse
gules between three crosses crosslet fitchee
azure. Crest : the sun rising out of the sea
proper. Motto, Emcrgo. Of the American
families of the surname Webster, there are
two important branches. John Webster who
came from Suffolk, England, progenitor of
Daniel Webster, is mentioned below. John
Webster from Warwickshire, England, settled
in Connecticut and was progenitor of the dic-
tionary genius. Noah Webster.

(I) John Webster, immigrant ancestor, was
born in England and as early as 1634 was a
proprietor and resident of the town of Ips-
wich, Massachusetts. He seems to be the
same John Webster, baker by trade, who was



admitted an inhabitant of Salem in 1637, who
was witness in the Essex court in 1639 and
applied for land at the creek in 1642. He
married Mary Shatswell, sister of John Shats-
well, who remembered her in his will. She
married (second) October 29, 1650, John
Emery, Sr., of Newbury, and removed with
him to Haverhill. He and his son John Emery
were appointed guardians of Israel Webster,
aged eighteen ; and Nathan Webster, aged six-
teen, at their request, November 26, 1662. The
family removed to Newbury from Ipswich.
Administration was granted to John Webster's
widow Mary, November 4, 1646, and later at
her desire division was made to the eight minor
children ; to the eldest son John the farm, he
paying to the youngest son five pounds or a
quarter the value of the farm ; Mary, Stephen
and Hannah to have equal shares in the island
bought of Widow Andrews ; Elizabeth, Abi-
gail and Israel to have twenty nobles apiece ;
all at twenty-one years of age. Children: I.
