Notes for Joseph WHEATON:

Information from M BROWNING sent to him by Mrs C M GIBBENS of Colesworthy Farm (1996)

Joseph WHEATON farmed at Lower Colesworthy from about 1773 followed by his son Joseph to about 1861 (?).  Then it was occupied by John HARRIS a cattle dealer.  The Lower Colesworthy dwelling was the cottage known as Colesworthy Cottage today. The farm buildings for Lower Colesworthy were demolished in the 1950s.  The big house, now known as Colesworthy House, was not built until the 1890s.

Will of James WHEATON

- to daughter Mary RAYMOND wife of Richard RAYMOND of Sidbury, Farmer £50

- to Nathaniel WHEATON, shoemaker of Sidbury his clothes

- to Nathaniel and Philip WHEATON, shoemakers of Sidbury all the rest, residue of Money, Securities, Personal Effects etc as well as Messuages, lands etc to be held in trust, selling everything and investing the money.  The Interest to go to Nathaniel and Philip, as was the rents from Freehold property, and then to be paid to his Daughter-in-law Mary WHEATON widow of my late son Rev James WHEATON of Lyme Regis.  After her death or remarriage the interest etc to go towards looking after her children until they are 21, when the principal is to be retrieved and all the money to be divided between the children.

Proved by Nathaniel and Philip WHEATON 27 February 1822 Under £400

 

In February 2012 I was contacted by someone researching the RAYMOND family who sent me a few extra details about the RAYMOND family.

I spent the afternoon looking for additional information…...I hate having gaps!  And I found William RAYMOND on the 1851 census - the William RAYMOND who was the son of James Wheaton RAYMOND.  He was visiting Joseph and Deborah WHEATON. 

 

The line for William RAYMOND, back to James Wheaton RAYMOND and then to Mary WHEATON (who married Richard RAYMOND) goes to her father, James WHEATON who is shown as a possible son of Joseph WHEATON and Elizabeth DAVY.

 

The family tree looks like this:

                                                       Joseph WHEATON and Elizabeth DAVY

 

                                                 Their children include:

                Joseph WHEATON (and Elizabeth ASHFORD)       and    James WHEATON (possible son) and Mary ACKLAND

Next generation        Joseph WHEATON (and Deborah WRIGHT)             Mary WHEATON (and Richard RAYMOND)

Next generation                                                                                                  James Wheaton RAYMOND (and Mary LOVERING)

Next generation                                                                                                  William RAYMOND

 

I think that makes William RAYMOND about a 1st cousin twice removed of Joseph WHEATON which could go some way to confirming that James (who married Mary ACKLAND) was Joseph's brother and the actual instead of the possible son of Joseph WHEATON and Elizabeth DAVY.  Nowhere near conclusive of course….but useful nevertheless.
