In Reply to: Richard WAINSCOTT (b.1711-d.abt.1768) by Ron Vance of 418

He was a London thief, from Southwick, who was transported
for stealing a coat, in 1727 (seven year sentence). He alias was Richard Wainscott, but his real name appears to
have been Richard Whaelly (Walley). It appears that
we are all descended from a poor lad, gone astray!
