a. Note:   !Initial source: A family group sheet compiled by Mr. Dorothy D. Hall, (now deceased). "The Waste Family Genealogy" by Dr. John Waste, says he was born 5 July 1720 in Plymouth, Mass., in the section now known as New Bedford, which is probably wrong as it would make him only 17 years old at time of his marriage. He doesn't give the source for this. In the Preface he says only that some material was obtained from city, county, state and gov't records but mostly from family records, including Bibles and old letters. Another Waste family genealogy found by Dorothy Hall, handwritten, infomation furnished by Emma D. Madsen and Lewis Whitworth, filmed in 1948 (FHL 386), says he was born about 1715. Also says tradition was that the early immigrants were Catholics who came from Scotland and the name was Wastney. BIRTH: "Mayflower Families ...", vol 3 pg 37. The account of his father, says "Child (Wast), prob. b. of Mary Samson ... Charles, prob. b. bef. 1706". His account on page 87 doesn't give a date but says "b. prob. Middleboro". MARRIAGE: "Mayflower Families ..." vol 3 pg 87. DEATH: Vital Records of New Bedford. "Mayflower Families..." says "from a fall". "The Waste Family Genealogy" says he died "in a fall while carrying a bar of iron across a foot-bridge. The family group sheet in the FGRA collection of the Family History Library, Salt Lake City, Utah, was submitted by Elizabeth H. Waste, 1015 Monterey Rd., Glendale, Calif. Her source: Waste family records. It is probably from the manuscript by Dr. John Waste as it has the 1720 birthdate. It also shows the children all born Plymouth, Plymouth, Mass. "The George Soule Family", found in "Mayflower Families Through Five Generations" V.3 pg 87, gives references: "MD 13:252; NEHGR 81:72ff; 91:371; 113:157-8; Plymouth Co. LR 22:81 (Richard Wast), 40:227 (Charles Wast); VR New Bedford, Rochester; Bristol Co. LR 32:1, 162; PR 19:506 (Charles Wast); VT Gaz 5:713." Deed in Land Rec of Plymouth Co., Mass., V. 22 pg 81, dated 6 June 1719, (FHL 558820). made by Richard Wast of Taunton, Miller, "for 50 pds given to my son Charles by one of his relations", gave, after his death, to son Charles lots 57, 58 in Middleboro for which he paid Ichabod Southworth 90 pds on 6 May 1719, (vol. 21 pg 107). These lots were sold by Charles Wast of Middleboro in 1742 (FHL 558826). No record has been found of the bequest of 50 pounds. But this deed refutes the 1720 birth. There is a Charles West, born 3 Apr 1720 at Plymouth, son of Judah and Bethya, extracted from film 1250 Vol 2, 3 or 4, or 161969 vol 13.
  From "Mayflower Families...": "Charles and family removed from Middleboro to Norton in 1742, thence to Rochester no later than 1744. Charles was a bloomer and had a foundry in New Bedford. His son Richard was killed in action in the War of 1762. The estate of Charles Wast was administered 6 Nov 1765 by son Bezaleel, George Badcock of Dartmouth and Consider Crapo of Rochester." A note in the New Eng Hist and Gen Register of Apr 1959 pg 157 by Charles G. Inman says he had a small notebook originally belonging to his gr-grandmother, Caroline (Waste) Inman, in which she had compiled data on the Waste Family. (She was daughter of Uri S., son of Uri, son of Bezaleel, son of Charles) Among other things it says Charles Waste died from a fall, carrying a bar of iron across a footbridge in New Bedford. A Plymouth County deed from Samuel Wood, dated 11 Mar 1742/3 (V. 39 pg 85) says Charles was of Taunton, which is about 8 miles southeast of Norton. His sons Richard and Eli were baptized in Rochester. Inventory of his estate, (Bristol Co. Probates V. 19 pg 467) taken 8 Aug 1764 by John Crapo, Chillingworth Foster and George Babcock says he was a bloomer of Dartmouth. His name is spelled Wast in one place and Waste in another in this record. The account of Bezaleel Wast, administrator of the estate of Charles Wast has many names, among them Peter Crapo, paid 2.10.11. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
