George Augustus Webb (6 March 1912[1] – 30 December 1998) was a British actor, best known for his role as "Daddy" in the sitcom Keeping Up Appearances.

The son of Henry Augustus Webb (1880–1926) and Gertrude (née Bolingbroke), Webb was born at 41 St Luke’s Road, Paddington in London.[1] He had two younger siblings, Denis Alfred Webb (1913–1918), who was killed by a military vehicle at age five, while picking flowers for his mother; and Joan Webb (1915–1989) who committed suicide after years of ill health.

From his father's earlier marriage, George Webb was the half brother of the actors Rita and Harry Webb.[1] On 30 December 1998, George Webb, aged 86, died of natural causes. He left a son, Michael Webb.[1]
