Trying to find Daniel Webb Glass Merchant

Philip Webb

Brummie babby
Hi I trying to find out anything about my great grandfather who was a glass merchant in Birmingham late 1800-1900s I think he also owned a 'Court' in Birmingham somewhere. Any help would be greatly received.

Hi Mikejee
No I hadn't seen them, I did see a mention on a request several years ago that said my grandfather Daniel Webb owned a 'Court' in Birmingham but not able to find it since.
We mortals thank you all for the help you give us

Roland was my grandfather ! Daniel J Webb died in his early 30s, not sure how - suicide. Coo this is good ! like being a detective !! thanks ever so much, m Philip Webb

master brummie
If he committed suicide there may be an inquest (Birmingham library hold records but won't do a search for you - either a visit or pay a researcher - I am waiting to visit - they will tell you if they gave a record if you have a rough date) and the death cert may tell you the cause of death.
The reason can be quite blunt - I have one and it is a good job I was expecting suicide.
