Hi I am currently researching my partner's family history and was hoping to find out what other children that John Breakspear WEBB and his wife Jane (maiden name I believe was SEWARD) had together. I assume Jane was his only wife?  Or am I mistaken? I know that John and Jane had at least had two son's called Charles John WEBB and Leslie Breakspear WEBB.  These two ended up coming over to New Zealand to live from England.  They both died and are buried in Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand.  I have been told that the rest of John and Jane's children remained in England.  Is this correct, I wonder? Charles John WEBB died on 01 December 1952 in Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand aged 77 years.  He spent approximately 40 years living in New Zealand.  His wife's name was Daisy.  She too was also a native of England and she died on 29 April 1945 in Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand aged 67 years. Leslie Breakspear WEBB was born on 04 August 1885 in Epsom, Surrey, England and died on 03 February 1963 in Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand.  He married his wife, Elizabeth Emma SMITH on 09 February 1918 at Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent, England.  They had two daughters and a son together.  Their eldest child (a daughter) was born in England.  Leslie's wife was born on 19 January 1885 in Shoreham, Kent, England.  She died in Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand on 15 October 1945. Thanks in advance to anyone who replies to this e-mail :-). Regards, Michaela
