After 1850  I find no information about William Henry until 1865.  Ihave a copy of a marriage record showing that Sept.  7,  1865 he marriedSarah Jane McComas,  daughter of Elisha and Sophia  Shelton McComas,  inSangamon County, IL So far in my search I have been unable to locatethem in the 1870 census, but we know that according to the 1880  censusof Sangamon co., IL their first child, Mary L. was born in 1866 andtheir second child William Taylor was born in 1868, both in Illinois.

In 1872  William Henry and  his  family  were  in  Butler.  BatesCounty, Missouri,  where their third child,  my grandfather Robert Lee. was born Jan. 19, 1872.  Sarah Jane died March 6, 1872, this accordingto a copy of a letter written by William Henry to her parents in IL. The same letter also indicates she is buried in Butler,  MO and althoughI have searched the cemeteries there on two different occasions I havenever found her grave.  I assume there never was a marker or over theyears it has deteriorated.  The state of MO indicates they do not  havedeath records  that go back  that far.   I also searched the newspaperfrom Butler for that time in hopes of finding an  obituary but never didfind one or any other notice or item about her death.  I do have a copyof Robert Lee's birth certificate that I found among my Mother's thingsafter she died.

Sarah Jane's sister, Mary Ellen McComas Davis and her husband Andrew,who lived in Wayne County, Iowa, near the little town of Bethlehem, tookthe baby, Robert Lee to raise.   Andrew Davis died  in 1874  and Jim, the eldest son of Andrew and Mary Ellen helped raise my grandfatherRobert Lee Featherston.

I next find William Henry  back in Sangamon  County,  IL where on Jan.1.1874,  he married a widow, Mrs. Nancy Vancil who according to the 1880census, was ten years older than he was.   This census shows them to bein  Auburn, IL and  William's two oldest  children  Mary  L.  andWillie  are  listed  in the household.  I have a copy of the record ofmarriage for William Henry and Mrs. Nancy Vancil,  as well as a deathcertificate for Nancy  Featherston, who died March 22.  1891 and isburied in Wimmer Cemetery, Auburn township. Auburn, IL.

In October,  1984  we  searched the  Wimmer Cemetery for a  headstonefor Nancy  Featherston but were  unable  to locate one.   We didhowever  locate a headstone for William Featherston,  who died Sept. 14.  1878, age 79 years, 9 months and 7  days.   This beyond  a doubthas to  be  William R. Featherston. father of William HenryFeatherston.   The grave is on  a lot owned by  Wm. H. Featherston, according to the index for the Sangamon County Cemeteries.  I do have apicture of this head stone.

In 1894,  according to the newspaper Carlinvilie Democrat  datedThursday Feb. 1, 1894 the following appeared: Wm. H. Featherston ofAuburn and Mrs. Amelia Nevins of Palmyra were married at the residence of Rev. W.A. Wright last  Wednesday night about six  o'clock.  Theyhave  gone  to  live  on  Mr.  Featherston's farm near Auburn. This information is confirmed  by a copy of  a marriage  license for MacoupinCounty,  IL between William H.  Featherston age 54,  and Mrs. Amelia J.Nevins age 34,  and dated Jan.  24,  1894.  The reverse side of thisdocument has the following information: ILLINOIS STATE BOARD OF HEALTH -RETURN OF MARRIAGE TO COUNTY CLERK 1.  Full name of Groom:  William H.Featherston 2.  Place of Residence:  Auburn, Sangamon Co. 3. Occupation:  Farmer 4.  Age next birthday:  55 years.  Color:  W Race:5.  Place of Birth:  Jessamine Co., Kentucky 6.  Father's name:  WilliamFeatherston 7.  Mother's Maiden name:  Martha Dunn 8.  Number of Groom'sMarriage:  Third 9.  Full name of Bride: Amelia J. Nevins 10. Place ofResidence:  Palmyra 11. Age next birthday:  35 years.  Color:  W  Race:12. Place of birth;  Macoupin Co., IL 13. Father's name:  David Dikes14. Mother's Maiden name:  Louisa (?)relton 15. Number of Bride'sMarriage:  Second 16. Married at:  Palmyra in the county of Macoupin andstate of Illinois, the 24th day of January 1894. 17. Witnesses toMarriage:  Nellie Ditson. Mrs. W.A. Wright This information gave me thefirst solid clue to Wm.  Henry's parents and also told me he had beenmarried 3 times when I had always assumed he had been married only 2times.

We  searched  the records of  Macoupin County at  Carlinvilie andlearned that Amelia J.  Nevins was the widow of John Nevins whose EstateProbate dated March 7,  1894  shows they had a child Elmer Nevins andthat the estate, a lot in the town of Modesto.  IL had to be sold tosettle debts owed.  It indicates the  Administrator was AlexanderNevins  and Elmer Nevins.   Since  I  find no later evidence of ElmerNevins,  I assume he remained in Macoupin Co.,  IL and did not live withWilliam Henry and Amelia. The next trace of Wm.  Henry and Amelia is adeed  dated August  17, 1897 which  conveys to  Charles E.  Davis land in Wayne County,  Iowa that Elisha McComas had filed on and left to hischildren when he died.  This deed was for the  portion of  this  land he left to  his now deceased  daughter Sarah Jane McComas Featherston.  The deed bears the signatures of not only William Henry and  Amelia, but also the signatures of Mary  L.  Featherston and her husband WilliamS.  Harris, William T. Featherston and his wife, Clara, and Robert LeeFeatherston and his wife Belle Webber Featherston. From the descriptionof the land and from what  my Mother has told  me, I believe this  to bewhere Robert  Lee and Mary  Belle Webber  Featherston were living whenmy Mother was born Feb. 8, 1897.

I next find William Henry and Amelia in the 1900  census of HarrisCounty Texas, as follows: W.H. Featherston      age 61        born KYA.J. Featherston      age 41        born TN U.O. Featherston      age 4        born IL H.C. Featherston      age  3        born IL Thesechildren were a daughter  Eunice Opal born  in 1895  died Feb. 13, 1943.She was married to Julius Koester and she is buried in Harris Co., TX.  Henry Clay born Oct.  9,  1896.   He died August 24,  1900 and isburied in Magnolia Cemetery at Katy,  Texas.   I have a picture of hisheadstone and also visited the grave site in Nov. of 1983.  Following isthe inscription on the stone: 'Henry Clay son of W.H. and A.J.Featherston born Oct. 9, 1896, died Aug. 24. 1900 Jesus said:  Sufferlittle children to come unto me and forbid them not; for such is thekingdom of God.' The 1910 census for Harris Co., TX shows the following:W.H. Featherston      age 71 A.J. Featherston      age 49 E.O.Featherston      age 14 C.L.

Charles Ervin Featherstone Sr. was born in Gaston County, NorthCarolina. His death certificate states that his usual occupation at thetime of his death was a 'retired' textile worker. His birth date isstated at November, 5, 1890. His attending physician, Dr. Scruggs statedhe died of a perforated stomach ulcer, on June 5th 1948, his age atdeath was noted as 57 years and 7 months. His parents are stated asJoseph Featherstone and Mary Neagle of Gaston County, and his wife asWillie Sipe Featherstone. His usual residence was stated as RFD #1, Mt.Holly, Gaston County, North Carolina The burial was noted to be on June6, 1948 at the Greenwood Cemetery, in Belmont, by Fite Funeral Home.

Of interest concerning his grave site at the Greenwood Cemetery, youwill find that his tombstone was originally engraved as 'Featherstone'with an 'e,' which was 'mysteriously filled in with cement' after hisdeath and burial, no doubt by one of the 'more stubborn' family members,who were adamant that his name was spelled 'Featherston.' Thus along-standing family debate regarding the spelling of our surname hasnow been immortalized in STON(E)......FEATHERSTONE that is, with an 'e.'

Slaves for Hire I shall commence hiring and renting the Slavesand Farm of Foster Cook, deceased, on the 2nd day of January next; at myresidence on Clear Creek. All persons who have hired the slaves, willreturn them on the 1st January. It will be expected of those who wishto hire again, to give satisfactory arrangements for the payment of thepresent hire, by which they will be entitled to preference to rehire.(Signed) Richard Featherston, Receiver in Chancery of the estate ofFoster Cook, Deceased, December 13, 1831. Note: Foster Cook was abrother-in-law of Newt Vick, the man from whom the city of Vicksburgtakes its name. Both were Local Methodist Preachers.

A note: Then, in the Open Woods, there was the indomitable little,decrepit layman, Richard Featherstun, who in times of altar work hoppedabout on his rheumatic limbs as nimble as a sparrow. Another fact wasone of the chief causes of this great revival; a large number of thosewho brought into the kingdom of grace were the children of prayer. ****

No.19, 8 Jun 1859, Page 2, Col. 3- Deaths Richard Featherstone was bornin Nottoway County, Va., 7 Nov 1791 and resided in Warren County, Miss.,for the past 30 years, where he died 18 Apr 1859. He was married 12 Dec1813 to Frances H. Sills, who survives him. Nashville and Richmond Adv.p. 228

No.3, 18 Jan 1860, Page 2, Col. 3- Deaths Richd Featherstone: Resolutionadopted at 4th quarterly conference, North Warren Circuit, MississippiConference: That in the death of Bro. Featherstone the church has lost apious member; sympathy extended to widow and family. Walter Billinslea,Sec.; Levi Pearce, Chairman.

Richard and wife Frances, died without direct heirs. Her sister, listedin Estate Papers as Martha H. Blair, sister and also listed as Mrs.Blaise. H.F. Cook, son of Mrs. Blaise assumes bond for disposal ofestate.

The name Featherstun (sometimes spelled Featherston or Featherstone) wasconnected very early in Warren County to the Methodist Church. A houseof worship in the Oak Ridge community, eventually, bore the name.Richard Featherstun was the first of the family to come, arrivingbefore the 1830 census was taken. Born in Amelia County, Virginia,Featherstun and his wife Ann had no children, but educated several ofhis nephews, Featherstun, a schoolteacher, lived in Vicksburg for awhile and built a house near the jail. By 1831 he had moved to thecounty and owned a farm on Clear Creek, east of Vicksburg. John GJones, who wrote a history of the Methodist Church in Mississippi,recalled the great revival that swept Warren County around 1830. Hewrote “…in the Open Woods, there was that indomitable little, decrepitlayman, Richard Featherstun, who in times of altar work hopped about onhis rheumatic limbs as nimble as a sparrow.”

By 1840, Belfield Featherstun, maybe one of Richard’s nephews, was alsoliving here with his wife, Nancy and several children. In 1850,Belfield and Nancy Featherstun gave an acre of land, 150 by 300 feet,for the construction of a Methodist Church. The deed indicates that astructure already existed on the site, the land was deeded to thetrustees who were not named, who were to “meet and built or cause to bebuilt and erected thereon a place of worship for the use of the membersof the Methodist Church, South…” They were instructed to “at all timesto permit ministers and preachers to preach and expound God’s Holy Woodtherein..” The deed specified that if a trustee died or ceased to be amember of the church, he was to be replaced by one who was at least 21years of age, who had been a member of the church for at least a year.The number of trustees should, always, be an odd number - nine, seven,or five - to keep from having a tie when voting. Provision was also madefor the church to borrow money by mortgaging the property. If it had tobe sold to pay the debt, any excess funds should be placed in the careof the stewards and then given to the Methodist Conference. The landwas bordered on one side by property owned by Tarleton Hancock, and thechurch was known as Featherstun Chapel. The deed was recorded onFebruary 20, 1850. No records have been found of Featherstun Chapel, andthere is no mention of it in most church records. It is doubtful that itever had many members or lasted many years.

There were several ministers in the Featherstun family, includingRichard’s brother, Joshua, who preached in Lunenburg County, Virginia.In 1860, the Reverend Francis M Featherstun was pastor of Fletcher’sChapel in Yazoo County; he later moved to Warren C0unty and may havepastored the church that bore his family name.

In the fall of 1878, eight members of the family of Reverend Francis M.Featherstun died of yellow fever and were buried at the Chapel; thenumber included the minister’s wife Mary, several of his children andother relatives. Two had died a few years earlier - a child in 1872 andBurwell Featherstun, who was 93 years old, in 1874. ReverendFeatherstun erected one large monument which bears the names and datesof death for ten people. Inscribed on the monument is “In Memory of myEntire Family.” About a year later the preacher remarried; his secondwife was Mary Virginia Markham, and the bondsman for the wedding was theReverend Charles B Galloway. Today, the marble monument, in the woodson old Beechland Plantation in the Oak Ridge community, is the onlyreminder of Featherstun Chapel. 
Featherston, Richard (I52679)
 
87
Of Black Dean, Weardale, Durham.
Stayed on at Black Dean House after his father Thomas moved to CotfieldHouse.
Wrote a book about Weardale worthies and their homes.
Jacob Ralph Featherston, the author of 'Weardale Men and Manners', wasborn on the 11th of May 1799, the son of Thomas Featherston, a wealthyretail grocer in Newcastle, and his wife, Jane Earl. Jacob's youngerbrother Isaac went to private school in Tamworth and then to EdinburghUniversity before becoming a surgeon (and eventually emigrating to NewZealand). Jacob probably went to a similar school but, to judge from thecharacter Frederick in the book, then went to work in the grocerybusiness of his father Thomas and uncle John (who died in 1814).

The Featherstons seem to have followed the pattern of many Newcastlemerchants of being rural landowners but making their money in the city.

Jacob married Ann Smith (Anna Simpson of the book) on the 13th of April1825. She was given away by George Crawhall, the dedicatee of the book.She died in 1834 less than a year after the death of her two year oldson, Thomas.
Ann died intestate - and her estate was passed to Jacob RalphFeatherston of Newcastle upon Tyne, grocer.

Notes for WILLIAM Featherstone II: 'English Duplicates of Lost VirginiaRecords, List of Patents' pg. 91, Pg. 109 and Pg. 192 states thefollowing:

P. 91 (List begins) 'A List of Patents granted for LAND in this Colonyby The Honorable Alexander Spotswood, His Majesty's Lieuten't Governor &Commander in Chief of this Dominion.'

~DFL Note: This finding indicates that William The Elder's son Williammay have been born in England and not joined his father until he was oldenough to travel. Assuming he was born about 1685, he would have beenabout 26 years old when he came to Virginia or he was born in Virginiaand went back to England for some reason and then returned?~******************************** A fellow Featherstone researcher, ReataMcNutt of Charleston, Illinois, believes that William Featherstone, Ifrom England was in Virginia by 1726, in the Amelia County area.

******************************** Per copy of Amelia County will for'William Feaston,' presented February 22, 1753:

'In the name of God Amen, I WILLIAM FEASTON of Amelia County being ofsick and weak but sound and perfect memory do make this my last Will andTestament as followeth First I desire all my Just Debts and FuneralExpenses may be paid.

'In court held for Amelia County February 22 1753 this last will andtestament of Wm. Feaston was presented by John Booker and proved by theoath of Charles Cupples and Jeremiah Keen and ...recorded...'

~~DFL Note---I believe that William Feaston and William Featherstone(II) are one in the same due to the reference to his wife CATHARINE andher son Stephen Neal, as well as the connection to JOHN BOOKER, Wm.'sexecutor, who appears to be the same John Booker mentioned above in thetransfer of land.~~

Notes for FRANCES Cross:

At this writing, I have not been able to definitively ascertain thenames of Frances Cross' parents. In the IGI there are several possiblematches.

Children of WILLIAM Featherstone and FRANCES Cross are: 37i. Charles9Featherstone, born Aft. 1710; died Bef. January 25, 1790 in BrunswickCounty, Virginia. He married Jane Wright; died Unknown. 38ii.

WILLIAM Featherstone,III, Jr., born Abt. 1710 in Prince George County, Virginia; died April27, 1769 in Nottoway Parish, Amelia County, Virginia.


36. Jane8 Featherstone (WILLIAM7, THOMAS6, JOHN5,WILLIAM4, JOHN3, THOMAS2, JOHN F.1) was born Abt. 1705 in Charles CityCounty, Virginia, and died Unknown. She married (1) JOHNCross. He died March 1731 in Westover Parish, Charles CityCounty, Virginia. She married (2) Francis HardymanAft. 1731. He was born 1688, and died July 23, 1741.

Notes for Jane Featherstone: Per Carol Houston, in Texas, on SundayOctober, 25, 1998, a William Featherstone was transported to AccomackCo., Virginia in January 1664/1665 by Robert Richardson. Apparently thisWilliam had a daughter named Jane who married 1st John Cross and had ason William, she then married a 2nd time (after 1731) Francis Hardyman.

~~DFL--Based on subsequent findings concerning Margaret Pimbrough andMary May relict of Henry May who both married William Featherstone (I),I do not believe Jane was the daughter of Margaret Pimbrough.

Another time she and my brother Denny were in the car in front ofthe house during a terrible thunderstorm. Suddenly, rain or no, Granjumped out of the car and ran into the house. As she passed me she washeard to exclaim 'those cars are fixed to kill folks!' Denny had givenher a story about how the car attracted lightning and the water runningdown the tires grounded the car.' 'She also hated 'Damn Yankees'. Momfinally won acceptance only after Gran approved of her disciplinarycontrol over Denny and me. I remember one day, as she was telling usabout a very nice lady down the street, she commented with surprise,'and she's a Yankee!' The reason there was never a building across WestPeachtree from her house was that she fought it. Aunie told us that shewent to a City Council meeting, shook her finger under the nose of aCouncilman in his sixties and said: 'Young man you can't do that!' Hebowed graciously and said: 'Thank you, Ma'am,' and they never did in herlifetime.'67

133 'In the history of this country the family to which E. C. Featherston, ofCallao in this county, belongs has been active in many places andvarious lines of endeavor. His name sparkles in the annuals of fourgreat states of the American union and dignifies and adorns almost everyform of industrial energy, and social, civil, military and officiallife. It had it American origin in Virginia, employed it faculties inthe development of kentucky, helped to bring a portion of Missouri fromprimitive conditions to a state of advanced improvement and stridingprogressiveness, and aid in giving the mining industries of California alift at the very beginning of their wonderful career. In all therelations of life and in every department of human energy the members ofthe family have borne themselves in a manner greatly to their own creditand the advantage of the communities in which they lived.

E.C. Featherston was born in Monroe County, Misssouri on May 31, 1858,and is a son of Green and Anna (Broaddus) Featherston, natives ofKentucky and early arrivals in Missouri. The father was born inJessamine County of the Blue Grass state and remained there until 1846.His father, Burrell Featherston, was a native of Virginia and belongedto families resident in that state from colonial times. His son Greenobtained his education in the county of his nativity and aided incarrying on the extensive farming operations conducted by his fatheruntil he reached the age of eighteen. At the time he was a youth inyears but a man in stature and spirit, and he determined to begin thebattle of life for himself, and, as his father had don, in a regionremote from family influence and in which there was opportunity yet tobegin at the foundation of affairs and work from that to the desiredresults wholly by his own efforts. He therefore came to Missouri in1846 and took up his residence in Randolph County, where he remaineduntil 1849. The gold harp of California was then fairly ringing out itsseductive music to the ravished ear of the world; and Mr. Featherstonwas enchanted by the inspiring strain. He joined the 'Forty-niners' intheir dramatic and spectacular argonautic expedition across thetrackless plains and forbidding rugged mountains to try his luck in thegold mines. He was one of the successful adventurers, mining profitableuntil 1852. He then returned to this state and again located in MonroeCounty to continue the farming industry he had abandoned three yearsbefore.

This one experience satisfied his longings for adventures in distantregions, and he devoted himself wholly to his farming and stock-raisingenterprise until 1870. In that year he moved to Moberly, which was inneed of builders to meet the demands of its then rapid development, andduring the next nineteen years he worked at the carpenter trade in thatcity, doing some teaming with connection with the industry at his trade.Om 1880 he gave up active work and moved to Monroe County, where hemade his home with his son until 1892 when he died. At the dawn of hismanhood came the call to arms to defend the country against theaggressions of Mexico, and he was one of the first to respond. In thatshort but decisive contest, the Mexican War, he justified his familyname and history by his valor, taking part in nearly all the principalengagements and sharing in the glory that came to the arms of ourcitizen soldiery in consequence of their entire subjugation of ourhaughty neighbor of the southwestern border.

The elder Mr. Featherston was a Democrat in Political allegiance andenergetic in the service of his party. he was allied fraternally withthe Masonic order, and in religious relations with the Christian church.He married in 1853 to Miss Anna Broaddus, of Kentucky and they becameparents of three children, all of whom ar living; Luella, the wife of R.L. Broaddus, of Madison, Missouri; and Allen G., a resident of Randolphcounty and Eliza C. of this county.

E. C. Featherston was educated in the district school of his nativecounty, and after leaving school worked as hired hand on farms in theneighborhood of his home until 1878. In that year he started learningthe trade of carpenter, and to this line of activity he adhered until1888. Agricultural pursuits at that time seemed to offer betteradvantages than mechanical industry, and they were more in line of histastes. He therefore turned his attention to farming and raising stock,which he followed with marked success until 1896, when he sold his farmof sixty-five acres and all its equipment and moved to Brynumville inChariton county. There he passed three years in the milling business,and in 1899 took advantage of better opportunity that presented itselffor an extensive trade in grain and mill products at Callao in thiscounty, moving them to that town, where he has ever since had his homeand the seat of his mercantile and commercial undertakings.

In all the communities of his residence Mr. Featherston has taken anearnest and helpful interest, showing good qualities of leadership inenterprises for public improvement and of persistency in carrying themto successful issues. In April 1906, he was elected Mayor of Callao,and he filled this important and responsible office with great credit tohimself and benefit to the town until April 1909, when he was electedvice-president of the school board and made superintendent of theconstruction work in building new school houses. In politics, Mr.Featherston is independent, holding himself free to support any policyor candidate he deems in line with his convictions and likely to proveof benefit to the people and their best interests. He is a Freemason infraternal life and a member of the Christian church in religiousallegiance, taking great interest in the welfare of and being an activeand effective worker in both his lodge and his church. On 27 Dec 1888,he was united in marriage with Miss Mattie Cunningham, a daughter of A.J. and Sallie (Duncan) Cunningham long residents and highly esteemedcitizens of Monroe County, Missouri. All of the six children resultingfrom the union are living. They are: Bessie, Harry M. Russell, Glenn,Chester and Lucille, all still at home with their parents andcontributing to the brightness and warmth of the family fireside. Thefamily stands well in the community, its members are leaders in social,educational and church work, and they are all held in the highest regardthroughout the county, and wherever else they are known.'

'Man Dies After Shootout With Police'

Fred Featherston was a familiar sight around the Gardenside ShoppingPlaza, always handing out quarters to children and smiling as they ranoff to buy candy or ice cream.

But police say the 88-year-old Featherston began firing through the doorof his apartment, wounded a policeman and eventually died himself assome 50 police stormed his second-story apartment, firing multiplerounds through his door and windows. 'Sickening.' said an apartmentresident who witnessed the battle. 'You should have seen it --50 cops,two fire trucks, tear gas everywhere that that old man by himself inthat apartment. If they'd just gone away ad left him alone, he wouldhave come out and everything would have been OK.'

Authorities said the trouble started when policeman neighbor Roy Mardiswent to investigate after he heard Featherston making loud noises insidehis apartment. Featherston told him to get away from his locked door orhe would shoot, so he called another officer to help and they were metwith a shotgun blast through the door, according to police spokesman,Joe Catt. Catt said reinforcements were called in and bullhorns wereused to try to coax Featherston into surrendering. After an officer waswounded in the leg, police said they stormed the apartment and found thebody of Featherston, the victim of three bullet wounds.

People at the shopping center expressed shock at his death. Featherstonwas accustomed to arrive by bus early every morning and stayed untillate afternoon. Without fail he ate breakfast at the same restaurant,had a doughnut and coffee at a doughnut shop later, and would thentinker around a hardware store, listening to little silver dinner bellshe often bought as gifts for friends.

Helen Wagner, 18, a waitress at the doughnut shop, said the tragedyresulted from an eviction notice Featherstone had received earlier inthe week. The apartment owners planned to remodel the building, shesaid, and had sent eviction notices to the residents. 'This was hishome,' Miss Wagner said. 'the last time I saw him was Sunday morning.Something was bothering him I could tell. I asked him what was wrong.He said, 'The owner keeps harassing me about my apartment, I don'tunderstand. I paid my rent' 'Poor Gramps didn't understand thenotice.'

Jane Deaton, a restaurant waitress, said she keeps in her purse aChristmas card Featherston sent her this past February. 'He said hewanted to be the first to send me a Christmas card this year,' she said.'I really loved that old man.' June Dyton, a sales clerk at thehardware store, said Featherston spent hours tinkling with the littlesilver dinner bells. 'I'll ever forget that sound,' she said.

144 'William Waylett was a male midwife who practiced in Lydd and thesurrounding parishes on Romney Marsh in Kent. He was born in 1729 anddied in 1815 aged 86. He was buried in the chancel of All Saints church,Lydd.

He made a manuscript record of the deliveries he undertook, which is nowheld by the Wellcome Library in London. John Douch published the article"William Waylett (1728-1815): Surgeon and Man-Midwife of Lydd" in TheLocal Historian, August 1993. Extracts of the article can be found onthe internet.

His records are held in the library of the Wellcome Library in London.William Waylett recorded each delivery under the following columns:
Date;
Name of mother;
Place of birth;
Months of confinement;
Character of Labour and Presentation at birth;
Sex of child;
Number of pregnancy;
Fee paid.

There are a total of 2,495 births listed. There are initials "S" and "T"against a number of entries. The "S" indicates that Thomas Sargent,William Waylett's assistant and nephew, was present. There is noapparent record of what the "T" indicates.

The records have been transcribed in Date Order and in Surname Order infamily groups. It is clear in the Surname Groups that the sequence ofdeliveries is not always consistent. In a few cases surnames havedifferent spellings. William Waylett recorded the surname of the motherdifferentiating those with the same name by adding the husband's firstname. The name of the child can be found by comparing the birth recordswith the baptism records. In the original document the husband's firstname has generally been abbreviated. To enable sorting of the data thename has been transcribed in full.

The records were transcribed by David Burgess from the original bookheld by the Wellcome Library, London, with their permission.'
