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
