1801 - 28th Mar 1873

Claimant or beneficiary


Received compensation as remainderman under the will of George Metcalfe (q.v.), alongside Robert Metcalfe Atkinson, Thomas Davis, Edward Metcalfe and Robert Metcalfe (all of whom q.v.).     

  1. John Wilson Metcalfe baptised 1801 Aysgarth Yorkshire, son of Thomas Metcalfe and Ann née Wilson. 1861 census shows a John Wilson Metcalfe widower and ex-grocer aged 58 living at Town-Head Hawes with spinster daughter Mabell [sic] aged 26. The death of a John Wilson Metcalfe aged 71 was registered Q1 1873 in Aysgarth North Riding. Administration of will of John Wilson Metcalfe late of Hawes who died 28/03/1873 granted 20/08/1873 to daughter Anne Metcalfe of Hawes spinster, effects under £200.

  2. Under George Metcalfe's will, the 3 tenants-in-common were Robert Atkinson 'now in Richmond', Thomas Davis of Gargrave and Isaac Metcalfe, now 'in London'. An Isaac Metcalfe, son of Thomas Metcalfe and Ann Wilson, was baptised Aysgarth Yorkshire 1799, and so would appear to be the older brother of John Wilson Metcalfe (and Edward and Robert Metcalfe).
