Edward Whetstone - Trowse

Norfolk Annals 1813

"Died, aged 80, Edward Whetstone, 44 years clerk of the parish of Trowse Newton.  He was originally a journeyman weaver, and had acquired some property.  He purchased and presented an organ which was placed in the church in 1803, and his remains were interred beneath the instrument".

There are numerous references to this man on the net and he seems to have lead an interesting life.
