Daniel Webb 1666

Daniel Webb, born about 1666, was a “molatto” son of an English woman and had attained the age of twenty-one on 5 October 1687 when the Northumberland County, Virginia court released him from his service to the orphans of Major John Mottram.

He may have had a child by Mary Day, an indentured white servant, who had a “molatto child” Samuel Webb alias Day who was apprenticed in Northumberland County on 23 November 1694.

On 16 July 1701 another English woman named Margaret Lawson confessed in court that “a Negro called Daniell Webb” was the father of her illegitimate child.
