You and I have the same lineage, it would appear. I am trying to verify information on Giles Westbury and Mary Chandler and/or Mary Marsham. Will look in the IGI to try and find information. Is there any information I can help you with and vice versa? Will send you a private message with contact details.

I share your line down to the 6th generation (I'm descended from Sally who married Major Bailey) so it was very good to find your detailed post.
Just one thing: I've recently been looking again at the records on familysearch, and sadly found a burial for Christian Westbury (née Kelme) on 3 October 1614 at
So Ralph's children, Elizabeth and Anthony, must be from his *second* marriage to Elizabeth Cannon which took place on 7 Apr 1619. See:
So Ralph's daughter Elizabeth was named after her mother.

Hello distant cousin,
Excellent find. I had a look on ancestry and found Ralph's will. He leaves money to his children Anthony Westbury and Elizabeth Scarlett nee Westbury and Elizabeth's 4 children.No mention of his new wife Elizabeth who must of died. What is interesting is that he has another daughter Anne who is the executor and main recipient of his will. I wonder if Christian died in childbirth and Anne was the 1st born.It appears that Anne was not married at the time the will was written in 1653.
I have updated the details above.
Well done and thanks again for your help. It is always good to get the details accurate.
