To my father John in gratitude for his lifelong interest in local and family history which he shared with me.
To my Uncle Peter who stimulated my curiosity about Bordesley Abbey, involving me in those early "digs".
To all those members of the Webb family whom I never met, but who now seem like old friends - I would love to have known you!

To my mother Jessie for her support and her amazing memory.
To my husband Maurice for his patience and computer know-how.
