    At the 1748/1749 Lent Assizes Walter and William WALLER were accused of stealing a sheep worth 10/6d from William GARDNER. They were found not guilty and discharged. Further research is being undertaken to find out if this Walter WALLER was the person involved.
    THE ACCUSED On the Tuesday afternoon of the 1748/1749 Lent Assizes the jury was sworn in.
    Henry Galland Joseph Fuller
    Walter Galland John Allingham
    Jonathan Betchley William Faulkner
    James Burt John Burt
    Walter Chatfield Thomas Buckwell
    John Gannard Nicholas Vinall
    That afternoon they listened to the case against John Mills and found him guilty of murdering Richard Hawkins. John Millsí sentence was that he should be hanged. The jury could not decide on the verdict for his accomplice, John Rennals, who was accused of aiding and abetting Mills and the case was first adjourned until the next morning, when it was again adjourned until the next assizes.
    On the Wednesday morning two more men were sentenced to be hanged following guilty verdicts by the same jury. In the first case that day, William Sheeman had been accused of murdering William Gally, and then John Brown, known as Jockey Brown, had been accused of Highway Robbery. He had stolen twelve guineas from JOHN WALLER. (As yet he does not appear on our charts).
    Another victim had been SARAH TICKNER. Goods worth 8d, 7s, 1/9d and 6d had been stolen from her by Joseph Mosely and his sentence was transportation for 7 years. Was John Upton luckier as his sentence for stealing goods to the value of 8d was to be whipped?
    There were sixteen cases in all, but it was case number six which was of particular interest. WILLIAM WALLER and WALTER WALLER were accused of stealing a sheep worth
    10/6d from William Gardner. This could be our Walter (the father on Chart 0600), who would have been about 21 years old. Given the sentences handed out to other miscreants for similar crimes during the day, to be hanged or transported, it was a great relief to read that the two men were found not guilty, and discharged.
    If that had not happened, where would we be today?
    On the 6th October 1775 a marriage settlement was drawn up involving Edward NAPPER, Esquire of Hyes, and Mary BOORER, a widow of Ockley, Surrey. The property was assigned to Walter WALLER of Rudgwick, Peruke Maker, and James BRABY of Ockley, a Wheelwright. They were to act as Trustees to ensure that Edward and his bride did not dispose of all or parts of the Hyes estate. Walter WALLER has signed the agreement and added his seal. A Walter WALLER was also involved as witness to many documents over the years which would suggest that he was well educated, trusted and respected. Our WALLER family were all able to sign their name very competently in the Parish Registers. Further research is being undertaken in an attempt to ascertain whether the varous Walter WALLERs are one and the same person.
    THE TRUSTEE
    If, in 1748, he was involved in activities which led to him being accused of sheep stealing, it could be that by the end of his life WALTER WALLER had become a respected citizen. In 1775 Edward Napper, Esquire, of Hyes in Rudgwick, the son of John Napper and his wife, previously Mary Trower, was planning to marry Mary Boorer. The marriage settlement included the property at Hyes which was to go to Edward for life, then to Mary Boorer for her life, and subsequently to their heirs. An agreement was drawn up to protect the inheritance once it was in the hands of the young couple. It meant that before he could sell any part of the estate, Edward Napper had to go to the trustees to whom the property was assigned on the 6th October 1775.
    The trustees were James Braby of Ockley, a wheelwright, and WALTER WALLER of Rudgwick, a peruke (wig) maker.
    This was not the only occasion when a WALTER WALLER of Rudgwick was called upon to be involved in such an agreement. There were many instances where this name appears as a witness to signatures in parish documents. Thus, if the two men are the same person, at least by the time he was reaching his fifties, the position held by WALTER WALLER within the village of Rudgwick was surely one of importance.

The idea of these charts is to give the information that we have found in the research we have done and put together and with the help of many other people who have contacted us over the past thirty odd years we have been researching our family. The idea is that you click on the Chart box in blue to be taken to the next family. There is now a large number of charts to be found and connections can be made to all the main families I am researching. If a chart has a box with the standard background it means that as yet I have not put the Chart on the Web.
To conform to the Data Protection Act all the Charts have been altered to exclude all details for living people other than the name.
