Families covered: Webb of Ashwick, Webb of Frittenden, Webb (Wood) of Hackney

Visitation identifies the arms of this family as "Per fess Gules and Argent a cross flory between four mallets countercharged" which is very different to that of the family on Webb04 (of Gloucestershire), as may be expected from its very different roots.
