In 1864- 7 he was vice principal at Cuddesdon.

In 1870 Webb responded to an appeal from Bishop Robert Gray of Cape Town to accept the Bishopric of Bloefontein in the interior of South Africa. One of Webbs first tasks was to oversee the planting of the Anglican Church on the Diamond Fields in the west of the Diocese of Bloemfontein. From this foundation would eventually spring (in 1911) the Diocese of Kimberley and Kuruman. Other major works included the establishment of the Community of St. Michael and All Angels. In 1883, he accepted his unanimous election as the Bishop of Grahamstown.

He was one of the first Anglican bishops to support and nurture corporate womens work in the church through the formation of Sisterhoods. His works include Sisterhood Life and Womans Work, in the Mission- Field of the Church (1883).
