Howard Webster’s Ancestors

We include here a chart of Howard Webster’s direct ancestors, and family trees with siblings at most levels.  His parents were David Butler Webster and Sarah Jane Kitchin, both from Canada.  The Webster family tree begins in about 1804 with the birth of Howard's grandfather, Edward Webster.  The Kitchin family tree begins with Howard's great-great-grandfather, James Kitchin, birth-date unknown but probably before 1780.

Note:  (1) We have omitted all living generations.  (2) Where records disagree, we list the most trustworthy first.  (Census records and ship passenger lists usually include the (often unverified) age of each person, from which only an approximate year of birth can be deduced.)
