« on: Sunday 08 July 12 14:29 BST (UK) »
Hi all my 5x great grandmother was sally/sarah Wase born around 1767. I found this reference about her about her her great grandson ( my 2x great grandfather's cousin samuel aurther peake was a professor born in leek 1865 and a primative methodist preacher)

"His great-grand-
mother on his father's side was a god-daughter
of the famous John Fletcher, Vicar of Madely,
designated successor of John Wesley. She was
a member of John Fletcher's church, and was
associated with Wesley in his evangelistic work.
It was customary for the Methodist preachers to
stay at her home when taking services in the
district
Sarah/sally married george peake in 1788 in lapley their child benjamin peake born 1789 also a primative methodist preacher is my 4x great grandfather. i found sarah/sally living in stafford in 1851 a widow born in madley, please could someone be kind anough to find a baptism for her, her maiden name  is Wase
many thanks in advance dave

Hi Dave,

There's a Sarah Wase baptised Waters Upton, Shropshire, on 6th June 1767; parents John Wase and Sarah.

Regards,
Maurice


Added: Waters Upton is about 12 miles from Madeley, Shropshire.
However, there is also a Madeley in Staffordshire, near Newcastle under Lyme.

Lots of Wases in the Waters Upton register. This marriage entry suggests that Benjamin Wase was also a minister.

1755, Oct. 9. John Birn, p. Malpas, Cheshire, & Elizabeth Blakemore, lic. By BENJAMIN WASE
Syner alias Taylor from Broseley and Benthall

thanks for finding and researching that for me much appriciated. My ancestors a this line seemed to be quite religious i know the peake side of the family was primative methodist preachers. Apparently my 4x great grandfather Benjamin Peake ran a night school in wheaton aston in the 1820's i wonder where i can find more out about this?

Offline wish I was fishing

Hi there,
Only joined recently & came across your research.
Sarah  Wase/Peake was my 4Xgreat grandmother. I am descended via William, Thomas & Mary Jane Peake.

I too have been looking for her baptism without success. However the fact that she was John Fletchers God daughter interested me. It seems that he (Fletcher) regularly wrote to a William Wase of Madeley.
I found William's will online. He leaves some money to his deceased son John's son (also John) & to "each of his remaining children, Nicholas, Joseph, Sarah Peake (!!!) & Ann Ward".
I can only find baptisms for John 1767 & Nicholas bap 1789 but born 1770!. So it appears they may all have been baptised much later than normal.
Hope this is of interest.
