The earliest members of the Wheate family we have discovered so far lived in the Midlands in the 15th century, and are described in The Visitation of the County of Warwick in the Year 1619, as published by the Harleian Society 1877

William Wheate had sons, Richard Wheate and Thomas Wheate.
Richard Wheate had a son, William Wheate, and with his sons we can start to become more confident about dates, so we call them Generation 1.

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. Early Wheate Family Tree Diagram.


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 his daughters Anna and Isabella. He named her youngest son, Edmund, as her executor.

 

Henry's children:


William Wheate (died 1616),
[married on 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, bought Glympton Hall, Oxfordshire in 1633 and was granted arms after the Herald's Visitation of 1619, thus beginning a line of baronets, which continued until the nineteenth century.

Jeremiah Wheate was educated in Coventry and then admitted to Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1668.

{This conflicts slightly with his baptism record which would suggest he was 23 at admission.}
He matriculated in 1670 and received a B.A. in 1671/2.

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.

Charles's 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 were all born: Mary Ann (1788), Sarah (1790), George (1792), John Thomas (1793), Charles (1795), Jeremiah (1797 to 1838) and Samuel (1800).

John Thomas's Children:

[born on 9th November 1820 and baptised on 4th December 1820 at St Leonards, Shoreditch. (Living in Curtain Road, father's occupation, turner.)]

Edwin Wheate,
[born on 7th December 1825, baptised on 5th February 1825 at Philadelphia Chapel, Windmill Street, Finsbury, (Parish of St Luke).]

{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?}

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

John Thomas's 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's 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 learned 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 Thursday 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, at various stages, she resorted to the workhouse.

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.

Edwin Wheate married Harriet Louisa Parry on 8th February 1858 at St Nicholas Church, Liverpool, after banns.
Both were of full age. Edwin a bachelor, Harriet a spinster.
Edwin, a watch case springer, was resident in Old Hall Street and gave his father's name as John Thomas Wheate, a tanner.

George Farming, lodger, age 44, Tinsmith, born Ireland.
[We are not sure of the relationship between Charles Appleton and The Wheate family. Charles was son of John Appleton, a watch escapement maker, and Esther Oakes from Cheshire.
It is likely that Edwin Wheate and John Appleton knew each other in the watch-making business and Edwin treated Charles as a nephew.}

"At the waterworks, Old Swan, Harriet L. Swinnerton, our dearly beloved mother.
Sleep on beloved, take thy rest,
Lay down your head upon thy savours breast;
We loved thee well, but Jesus loves thee best;
Good night, good night, good night.
Bert and Connie, Parton Street, Fairfield.
