In March 1606 Webster married Sara Peniall and less than two months after the wedding, their first child, John, was baptized. The next twenty years give us little information. The Websters had other children, including daughters Margery, Sara, and Elizabeth.

Circumstances of death

Webster was still writing plays as late as the mid-1620s, but Thomas Heywood's Hierarchie of the Blessed Angels (licensed 7 November 1634) speaks of him in the past tense, implying he was then dead. Webster is thought to have died sometime after 1625.
