Deborah Webber

Deborah WEBBER is my seventh great grandmother.  She was born to Samuel and Deborah (LITTLEFIELD) WEBBER, between 1698 and 1702 in York, Maine.[1]  Deborah was taken to court for having a bastard child with Jacob PERKINS (my eighth great grandfather), 1 April 1718, she was ordered to receive ten stripes on her naked back at the post and pay court fees of 8 shillings or pay a fine of 30 shillings and fees, there is no record of which she chose.  The child born is Joseph PERKINS.[2]  She married Andrew WESCOTT after 19 April 1729 in the First Church in Kittery, Maine.[3]  Andrew and Deborah had six children:  Josiah, Alice, William, Samuel, Mercy and Anna.  There is no record of her death all that is known is that it was after 20 October 1760, the time in which she co-signed a deed with her husband.[4]  Her place of burial is also unknown at this time.  Many articles have been written on the WESCOTT family, most not putting them in a good light.
