John Waite

b. 17 May 1687, d. 1747
FatherWilliam Waite b. 9 Sep 1649, d. 1738
MotherJoan Hunt b. 6 Jan 1654, d. 1718
John Waite's signature 1713
     John Waite was born in 1687 at Tonbridge, Kent, England.
John Waite was baptized on 17 May 1687 at Tonbridge, Kent, England.1 He was the son of William Waite and Joan Hunt.
The marriage allegation in 1713 between John Waite and Elizabeth Low, both of Leigh, gives both their ages as 26 years, which confirms that John Waite was born c1687 and thus matches the baptism in Tonbridge. John's first son was called William which is also consistent as this is his father's name.
There is also on the IGI a marriage of a John Waite and Jane Hadlow in East Malling, Kent in 10 May 1710 and they had their children in Tonbridge: Sam (1727), Jenny (1722), John (1720) and Richard (1730). It is assumed that this was the John Waite bap 1682 in Leigh, son of Edward and Elizabeth Waite, as the names are consistent with that family.2
John Waite and Elizabeth Low obtained a marriage licence on 23 April 1713 at All Hallows upon London Wall, London, England, John gives his age as about 26 years, and Elizabeth as 26 years.3
On 3 July 1720 John Waite lived at Hollanden, Hildenborough, Kent, England. We know this because "of Hollanden" was added to his son's baptism entry. Hollanden is a small hamlet in Hildenborough near Tonbridge. A Hollanden House still survives and is located on Mill Lane just off London Rd which connects Hildenborough with Sevenoaks.
John Waite witnessed the will of Hannah Hunt dated 20 July 1724 at Sevenoaks, Kent, England.4
In 1726 John Waite inherited the 18 acre farm called Mardens from his mother's sister, Hannah Gilpin (nee Blackwell, nee Hunt). For more information about Marden's, the booklet History of the Old House (Originally Marden's Farm) in Hildenbrough, Kent can be dowloaded here.4,5,6
John Waite witnessed the probate of the estate of Hannah Hunt on 22 April 1726.
Lawrence Biddle's book "Leigh in Kent 1550-1900" mentions that Brights Farm (now called Great Hollanden Farm) was occupied by tenant famers, and that the longest tenures were that of William and John Waite, who occupied Brights in succession from 1688 to 1740. We now know that John was William's son.7
A lease exists dated 24 November 1733 which indicates that John Waite owned a property called Mardens which is in Hildenborough on Philpots Lane (at the intersection with Nizell's Lane). The lease states:
"Lease for 13 years by John Waite of Hollanden, Leigh, yeoman, to William Latter of Tonbridge, yeoman. Messuage called Mardens, barn, stable, stall yards, gardens, orchards, yards and seven fields comprising 18 acres, occupied for several years by William Latter; in Tonbridge. Consideration [rent] £11 per annum. Covenants: 1) Latter to spread straw from corn and dung on the land. 2) Latter not to plough meadow land, or in last two years plough more than eight acres, subject to penalty of £4 an acre.
Signed William Latter (his mark) (seal missing). Endorsement: Witnesses: James Crosley, Thomas Weller."8

The Tonbridge Overseers of the Poor rate assessments for 31 May 1728, 23 May 1729 and 19 Jun 1730 has the following entry: John Wayte: £5.0.0 (implied rental value £25p.a.) A later assessment on 17 Aug 1733 records: John Wells: £1.06.0 and Widow Wayte: £2.10.0. This could well be a different John Waite, the one who died 1732 whose wife was Jane Hadlow. This John Waite left a record of probate including an inventory, indicating he was a wealthy farmer. His estate was valued at over 500 pounds. This would explain why Widow Wayte (i.e. Jane) appears from 1733. In 1739 there is an entry for John Wayte "at Hollanden" who is rated at 7s/6d and this is likely to be ours.9
The Datchurst manorial court books record the death of Robert Streatfield of Hever in 1741 stating that he held a parcel of land at Hollenden near Watts Cross in the occupation of John Waite and at the yearly rent of 8d.10
In 1742 the Datchurst manorial court books record the transfer of the property Mardens from George Children to his heirs. This property came to John Waite in 1726 so sometime before 1742 it must have been sold it to George Children, although there is no record of this in the manorial court books. John appears to have never farmed the property as it was always leased out to William Latter, and the lease of 24 Nov 1733 shows that he owned it at least up to then. John's main property was always at nearby Hollanden.10
John Waite died in 1747 at Tonbridge, Kent, England.
John Waite was buried on 17 October 1747 at St Peter & St Paul, Tonbridge, Kent, England.11
A likely burial for John Waite is 17 Oct 1747 at Tonbridge: "John Wait aff made 22nd" . There are two other John Waite burials there: 24 May 1762 and 6 Feb 1763.12

The marriage of John Waite and Jane Hadlow in East Malling, Kent in 10 May 1710 seems the logical fit here. Their children's names are consistent with the family and the other contender, John Waite bap. 1687 at Tonbridge son of William, has been shown to have married Elizabeth Low based on his age given for their marriage allegation.
John Waite married Jane Hadlow on 10 May 1710 at East Malling, Kent, England.3
John Waite died in 1732 at Tonbridge, Kent, England.4
John Waite was buried on 11 February 1732 at Tonbridge, Kent, England.4
His estate was probated on 14 February 1733/34 at Archdeaconry of Rochester, Kent, England, (Kent History Centre - DRa/Pi16/8.)5
John Waite's probate was investigated by Gillian Rickard who found that administration of his estate was granted to his wife Jane, with a probate inventory dated 14 February 1732 and presented to the court on 22 March 1733. It survives amongst the records of the Archdeaconry Court of Rochester (Kent History Centre: Dra/Pi 16/8). The value of his estate came to £505 6s 6d, a large sum for the time (being the eldest surviving son of an eldest surviving son probably helped!). A detailed inventory of his estate apparently survives, but has not been sighted although it is mentioned in Chalklin's 1962 paper "The Rural Economy of a Kentish Wealden Parish 1650-1750".5
A Lease and Release document dated 9th & 10th October 1758 relating to Jane Waite and her sons exists in the Lancashire Archives (DDK/1122/26 & 27). There are various other documents relating to John and Jane Waite (DDK/1122/26-32) including one mentioning John Waite and dated 10 May 1732 (DDK/1122/32). These have yet to be investigated. Of interest is whether she had a son William as he would be a candidate for the will of William Waite made 1795.6
