I'm working on a bit about the Whitehouse Glassworks and I'm trying to figure out how Edward Webb fits into the grand scheme of things.
Was he one of Thomas Webb the first's sons? Thomas Webb had five sons, and I've found four of them (Joseph Webb, Thomas Wilkes Webb, Charles Webb, Walter Wilkes Webb) but am missing the fifth.
In H.W. Woodward's book "Art, Feat and Mystery - The story of Thomas Webb & Sons, Glassmakers" we learn that John Webb, Thomas Webb's father entered the glass industry and in 1833 became a partner of John Shepherd at the White House Glassworks, trading as "Shepherd and Webb." John Webb died in 1835, leaving his share of the business to Thomas, his only son at that time.
If he wasn't one of Thomas Webb's sons, does anyone know what his relationship was ?
Also I've seen Whitehouse Glassworks referenced as being in Stourbridge, and other times Wordsley (which are less then two miles apart), but assume they are the same glassworks.
Any information on Edward Webb would be greatly appreciated.
