In the A2A Archives an Ann WINGYETT of St. Paul's, Exeter, widow of Joseph WINGYETT, of Exeter, confectioner and gingerbread maker, is mentioned in a lease dated 1790.  There must be a relationship somewhere - perhaps the Joseph who had died by 1790 was a brother or the father of the Mathew above?


Mathew WINGYETT, ??-1812?

He could be the Mathew referred to in the newspaper reports below:

Extract of a letter from EXETER, July 17th:
"
A most melancholy accident happened last Thursday evening, Mr. Richard Broad MANNING and Mr. Matthew WINGYETT, two respectable tradesmen of this city, having some business that required their attendance together in the country a few miles from hence; on their return home (on Langdown,) the back-chair of the carriage in which they were, broke, and the horse taking fright, threw them both with great violence out of it; some people soon after coming by, fund Mr. MANNING speechless on the ground, supported by his friend, who was also very much hurted.  They were both brought to Exeter, but too late to tender any assistance to Mr. MANNING, who expired in a short time after.  We are happy, however, to add that Mr. WINGYETT is in a fair way of recovery."

LAW NOTICES

[Before Sr. J. L. KNIGHT BRUCE]
LIDSTONE V WINGYETT
Mr. NICHOLS moved that the plaintiff might be at liberty to serve upon the defendant personally a copy of the traversing note, which the plaintiff had filed against him.  The application was considered necessary, in as much as the orders of 1842 and 1845 directing service of a traversing note, referred only to cases in which a defendant defended in person, or by a solicitor.  Here the defendant had been served with a subpoena, of which, it was stated, he had taken not notice whatever
The Vice-Chancellor thought that under the circumstances the motion was reasonable, and granted the leave prayed.
