The History of Lincoln Waites
William Wigley or Wiggsley
1719, 1755 - 1756 & 1762
14 January 1719
- "A Kalindar for a Waite
- Inō William Andrews
- William Wiggsley - nomine contradicente" (elected - name unopposed)
- (ref: L1/1/1/7, page 68)
It seems very likely that this is the same William Wigley that was chosen as a Wait again in 1755 and 1756.
- Note from Dr. Alan Radford, of Leeds Waits:
- "'Inō' before a surname is 'John'. I have an example of its use in the York Assembly Rooms account books in the 1730s, listing a payment to Inō Midgeley, who I know from Blind Jack's autobiography to be John Midgeley, one of the Leeds Waits. I think it's a fairly standard abbreviation."
