He also played one Test match for England. After being schooled at Harrow School, he went on to Trinity College, Oxford, where he got a Blue in his first year.

Webbe first played for Middlesex in his first year at University, aged only 20. In 1878–79 he was one of the amateurs to tour Australia with Lord Harris, and it was on this tour that he played in his one and only Test, scoring only 4 and 0. Webbe was appointed captain of Middlesex in 1885, a post he held until 1898. His best season as a batsman was his third as captain when in 1887 he scored 1,244 runs at an average of 47 and made 243 not out against Yorkshire.

From 1886 until 1909 he was a member of the committee of the Marylebone Cricket Club.
