Further details of Chris's direct Wheate ancestors


The following sections contain details transcribed from documents such as census, birth, marriage and death certificates, parish records, newspapers, etc.

Unless otherwise stated, we have transcribed directly from the original document or from a scanned or photographic image of the original document.



Henry Wheate of Walsall Early Wheate Family Tree



Henry's forefathers

We have not yet discovered when Henry Wheate was born, although it was certainly before 1550.
Henry's pedigree is recorded in the Visitation of the County of Warwick in the Year 1619,, as published by the Harleian Society 1877.
From this source, Henry's father was William Wheate, son of Richard Wheate. Richard was son of William Wheate who lived in the midlands during the early 15th century.
[All of this is based on the testament of people who were interviewed by William Camden, Clarenceaux King of Arms, in 1616. We have seen no other documentation to support it.]

Marriage

Henry was married to Agnes. We do not have a family name for Agnes, who outlived Henry and died in 1608. She left money in her will to her son William and daughters Anna and Isabella, and named her youngest son, Edmund, as her executor.

Henry's children

William Wheate(d.1616)
[married 6th February 1591 at St Mary Lichfield to Anne Quiney, widow of Richard Bailey. [The Quiney family had connections to William Shakespeare.]
William was a mercer and alderman in Coventry. He became Mayor of Coventry in 1604. His son William became a successful barrister in London and bought Glympton Hall, Oxfordshire in 1633. He was granted arms after the Herald's Visitation of 1619, beginning a line of baronets, which continued until the nineteenth century.

In detail:

Birth

We have not found a birth or baptism record for Charles yet. Both his age of 80 (to the nearest 5 years) quoted in the 1841 census and the age of 86 at his burial in 1841, suggest that he was born about 1755.

Marriage

Children

Charles' first three children, Mary (1783), William Fearn (1785) and Ann (1786), were born and baptised in Derbyshire.
Their baptisms seem to have been recorded both in the parish of Hope and also the parish of Hartington - both parishes adjoin that of Earl Sterndale, where Charles and Elizabeth were married.
None of these records state exactly where Charles was living or working at the time.

At some point between 1786 and 1790 Charles and Elizabeth moved to London where their later children, Mary Ann (1788), Sarah (1790), George (1792), John Thomas (1793), Charles (1795), Jeremiah (1797-1838) and Samuel (1800) were all born.

{On the previous page in the register is another entry, only partly completed and with evidence of alteration, also for a son of John Thomas Wheate, but from Greenwich
John Wheate born 27th November 1825, baptised 25th December 1825 at Providence Chapel.
The birth dates would preclude Edwin and John from being siblings. Could this be an error of copying when these entries, from different chapels were copied into the book?
Does John belong to John Thomas and Sarah and the dates and place are wrong, or does John belong to different parents altogether?}

[born 21st July 1827, baptised 2nd December 1827 at Ebenezer Chapel, Old Street Road. (Father's occupation turner)]

Death
December 1834

There is an extract from a letter to America in a 1903 book, (Wheate Genealogy: A History of the Wheat family in America. pub. Silas C. Wheat) , in which John Thomas' grandson, Thomas, (son of Thomas Joseph) writes:

"... John Thomas Wheate, a master wood and metal turner of the city of London, who died at Hanwell in Hertfordshire, 1834."

Hanwell does not even seem to exist in Hertfordshire. There is however a Hanwell in Middlesex and this seemed more likely, so, following this lead, we learn that there was an asylum at Hanwell and it would appear that John Thomas was a patient there.

From the London Evening Standard 29th December 1834:
Inquest on a Lunatic at Hanwell in Middlesex. - Saturday morning. An inquest was held at the Pauper Lunatic Asylum, Hanwell, in Middlesex, before Mr. Stirling, Coroner, on view of the body of Thomas Wheate, aged 36, an unfortunate maniac confined in the said institution, and whose death was supposed to have been caused by one of the other patients placing a straw paliasse on him whilst in a fit. John Elliott, one of the keepers of the asylum, deposed that the deceased was a patient confined there and was an inmate of No. 7 Ward. On Thursaday night last, at the usual hour of 8 o'clock, witness locked the deceased and others in their bed cells; on the following morning, on opening the door of the cell, he found the deceased lying on his iron bedstead, apparently quite dead, and another unfortunate being, who was unconscious of his miserable companion being dead, holding the paliasse over him. Witness removed the paliasse, and then ran for Mr. Quick, the surgeon. It appeared that his death was occasioned by a fit of epilepsy, having been subject to fits. - Verdict, died by the visitation of God.


The family after the loss of John Thomas


It would seem that Sarah found it difficult to support the family after the death of her husband and aat variious stages, she resorted to the workhouse.

From their child Edwin's birth certificate:-
Edwin was born on 4th July 1853. (His birth was registered the following day and his mother, Mary, formerly Parry, described as 'deceased', meaning that she died during or soon after childbirth.)
His father was described as Edwin Wheate, watchmaker, of Salisbury Terrace, Everton
[Salisbury Terrace was one of the small roads off Salisbury Street]

NB. It only became legal to marry a deceased wife's sister following the Act of Parliament in 1907, so this might explain why Edwin described himself as a batchelor for his second marriage and had the ceremony at a different church.
