The History of Lincoln Waites

Peter Wright and John Cleaving

1795

The Yarborough Household Accounts for 1794/1795 (ref: YARB 7/1/3) list two occasions when Peter Wright and John Cleaving were paid £1, 1 shilling "for playing on the violin". The accounts give no further details, so we are left wondering whether these two men may have been Waits - or not.
