William Wallworth   ( 1740 - 1818 )

 

 

44.           WILLIAM WALLWORTH   (of Thomas6 , of Thomas5 , of John4 , of Thomas3 , of Thomas2 , of Thomas1 ) was born in 1740.  The year of birth is base on the age of 78 years at his death in 1818.  The baptism of William was not found.

 

Father:          Thomas Wallworth   (No. 31)

Mother:          Esther Pickering

 

 

Notes:

1st. -- William and his brother John’s christenings were not found in the Parish registers of St. Mary church, Weaverham so it cannot be totally certain if they were sons of Thomas Wallworth (No. 31) and his wife Esther Pickering.  But William did lived in other places with the other sons of Thomas Wallworth (No. 31) and that he mentioned in his Will about lands in Cuddington.

2nd. -- William mentioned in his Will that John Wallworth was his brother and this John Wallworth also has connections to the Cuddington Wallworths.

 

William Wallworth married  MARY HORNBY on October 29, 1765 at St. Helen church in Tarporley, Cheshire, England.  The marriage was by banns and they were mentioned as both of the parish of Tarporley.  It is possible that the last name is Hormby.  In William’s Will he mentioned his brother-in-law as Hormby.

Mary Hornby was born ca. 1747.  The year of birth is base on the age of 59 years at her death in January 1807.  The 1791 baptism of Sarah Hibbard at Christ Church, Alsager mentioned that Mary was a daughter of Ralph Hornby.

They were living at Eaton in the parish of Tarporley, Cheshire from about 1765 to 1771.  His brother, Joseph Wallworth, was in Eaton too.

Between 1771 and 1774, William Wallworth and his family moved to Alsager Hall in the parish of Barthomley, Cheshire.  In the christening of his daughter in 1774, William is described as a Yeoman of Alsager Hall.

In the year 1776, William Wallworth was one of the churchwardens for St. Bertoline church in Barthomley, Cheshire.

William became an active person in Alsager’s town activities such as being appointed Constable and Surveyor and Overseer of the Poor several times over the years from 1774 to 1810’s.

On October 26, 1789, Wm. Wallworth was one of those present at the marriage of Joseph Robinson and Sarah Bostock in St Bertoline church in Barthomley, Cheshire.

 

Mary Wallworth at the age of 59 years died on January 12, 1807 in Alsager and was buried January 16, 1807 in the churchyard of Christ Church, Alsager.

From the Parish Register of Burials of Christ Church, Alsager, we have the following:

Burials 1807

William Wallworth at the age of 78 years died on November 9, 1818 in Barthomley, Cheshire and was buried November 13, 1818 in the churchyard of Christ Church, Alsager.

The death date came from his Will.

From the Parish Register of Burials of Christ Church, Alsager, we have the following:

Burials 1818 - Page 9 No. 66

From his Will, the following are extracted:

“I William Wallworth of the Township of Barthomly in the County of Chester, Yeoman, being weak in Body, but of sound Mind, Memory, and Understanding ......”

“I order and direct my Wifes Settlement made and agreed on before our Marriage, viz: One Hundred Pounds and also such a Quantity of Household Goods or Furniture as shall amount to the Value of Fifty Pounds for her own separate Use during her Life and Widdowhood, which said Goods or Furniture must be returned at her Death or Marriage which shall first happen and then the said Household Goods or Furniture shall devolve and fall and be equally divided among all my children ......”

“Finally, I give and bequeath to my Brother John Wallworth, my Son in law John Corke, and to my Brother in Law John Hormby ....”

“all my Landed Property, consisting of a Paper Mill Estate and other Land lying and situate and being on the Back-Side of the Old Corn Mills and one Part of the garden called and known by the name of the Saw-Pitbank and all other Lands appertaining to me and situated & lying in Cuddington”

“I do nominate and appoint my said Brother John Wallworth, and my said Son in Law John Corke, and my said Brother in Law John Hormby as Executors ...”

“The 27th Day of April 1819 John Wallworth of Barthomley and John Cork, two of the Executors in this Will named  were sworn in …… The Testator died 9th November last past….”

 

The Will was signed on April 30, 1816 and probate issued April 27, 1819.  The witnesses were Thos Bennion, James Timmis, and Chas. Wallworth.

From the Will it appears that William has since remarried.   He didn’t mention the name of the wife in the Will.
