Daniel Webb was born at Maidstown, County Limerick and died in Bath on 2 August 1798. From a reasonably prosperous Irish family, he was educated in Maidstown and at New College, Oxford, matriculating on 13 June 1735 and leaving without taking a degree. He lived most of his life in Bath. He was twice married, first to Jane Lloyd and latterly to Elizabeth Creed; there seem to have been no children from either marriage.
