Hi Maureen

I have searched for your ancestor Edward Westwell in England. I am of Westwell lineage, and it is quite a rare surname, prevailing for the most part in Lancashire England. You may be interested to know that there was an Edward Westwell born 1848       Clayton-le-moors, Lancashire, England. His parents were       Robert Westwell and Mary Ann. That date would be about right for your ancestor Herbert Ross W but may need to be cross checked. You can apply for certificates of all births marriages and deaths in England back to 1837, via the Family Records Centre in Islington, London. They can post you a search for a fee. Hope this helps,
Cole
