Sarah Webb (1820 – 1 January 1925)

Sarah was born in Bloomsbury, London and was the daughter of surgeon Henry Webb and Elizabeth (née Dunn) (1791-1877). In 1861 was living with her widowed mother Elizabeth,  and sister Mary in Paddington.  Sarah and Mary were both ‘fancy workers’ (someone who did decorative needlework, for example embroidery).  Elizabeth Webb had been born in Burwell and in 1871 Sarah was living with her mother at 23 New Square, Cambridge, where Elizabeth died aged 86 in February 1877.  Sarah moved to 7 Perowne Street (1891) and Mawson Road (1901). In 1901 Sarah was living with a companion, and her nephew.  She died at Mawson Road aged 104 years old and her funeral took place on 6 January 1925.
