Summary BACK to
William Wentworth was the brief occupant of Manor Farm and the glebe land in Quenington at the turn of the nineteenth cemtury. He was born in Buscot, Berkshire, in 1775. He took over the two tenancies in Quenington after the death of the previous holders John Randall in 1799 and Susannah his widow in 1801. He was presumably a resident of Quenington, which was the status of his probable sister Phoebe Wentworth who married in Quenington in 1802 (he himself married there in 1801). He was there for only a year or two, clearly a farmer. After 1803 he was gone. He is later found at Inglesham, near Lechlade in Gloucestershire, where children were born in 1817 and 1819 and where he was farming. He died there in 1831 at the age of 56.
In Quenington he was one of the two assessor/collectors signing off the land tax accounts for 1803.
