    We have Webbs in my Welsh Borders/Powys DF41 cluster, who seem to be reflected in the western part of the UK Webb distribution map below.

    In many older books it was assumed the two Webb clusters represented two separate families, but we know now, many parts thanks to the Webb Surname DNA project, that there are a large number of separate Webb lineages. So I am assuming that the two clusters, South West England and South East England must have more to do with retaining the Old to Middle English form of the surname. I have read that most everywhere else in England the occupational surname for a weaver changed to Webster/Weaver. Why these two areas of England retained the earlier version is interesting, however. One would have to assume that just as most towns had a blacksmith, they probably also had a weaver, thus giving rise to the commonality of the name. The other interesting fact is that the majority of the lineages in the Webb DNA group are P312, with most of those being L21. Which isn't too surprising for the South West/ West England Webb's, but kind of surprising for the South East group of Webb's.

    I found another map of surnames in Ireland for comparison. It's the Topographical and Geographical Map of Ancient Ireland. It can be seen here: https://digital.library.villanova.ed...0.125%2C0.0435

    There are zoomed up versions here (the link for the south east doesn't seem to work though): http://www.okelley.net/Map/index.htm

    John Grenham's website can be good for seeing where all surnames were in the 1800s and early 1900s. However, a name like Kelly just makes it look like there's some sort of infestation and only really helps in looking at the numbers showing it being most common in counties Galway and Roscommon.
