  • Notes 
    • From his will proved 15 March 1806. He was a merchant from Scarborough and mentioned his wife Ruth. He did not name his children directly but left money to them. He also mentions a William Wharton (his brother, gentleman) and Anthony Kidd all of Scarborough.

      "The testor by his will gives the whole of his property to his wife and children. But by a codicil he gave to Anthony Kidd an anuity of 20 pounds out of his personal estates in addition to his wages during so long time as he continues in the service of his (Testor's) family. In case he left their employment then the Testor from that time gave him an aunity of 10 pounds during his life paid yearly."

      It then lists various names that he paid debts too including:

      Mary Drake, Christopher Jennings, William Jennings, William Thompson, George Jennings, Mary Musgrove, Thomas Musgrove, Ann Varily, Susannah Musgrove, Hannah Hapton, Sarah Musgrove.

      His will can be downloaded from the National Archives
