Thomas Wheeler1

M
      Bedfordshire is a county of the south Midlands. It has always been agricultural. No large cities mar its rural landscapes. Near its western border, about equally distant fro the northern and southern ends of the county, lie the small rural parishes of Marston Mortaine and Cranfield. Families bearing the name of Wheeler have lived in these parishes from the fifteenth century and perhaps from an earlier date. Is is supposed that they were first at Marston Mortaine, going thence to Cranfield. This parish is distant some eight or nine miles southwest from Bedford, the county town, and ten miles south of Odell, the parish where the Reverend Peter Bulkeley officiated before he became the minister of Concord, Massachusetts, in 1635.

      The will of John Wheeler of Marston Mortaine, dated November 16, 1500, proved December 12, 1500, mentions daughters Anne, Jane, and Johan, and brother Richard Wheeler.

      The will of John Wheeler of Cranfield, dated February 9, 1566, proved April 16, 1567 bequeaths unto his son Thomas "according to the custom and he to enter to the same at the age of Twenty one years, all my copyhold land within Cranfield, he paying out of the same to John my son when he cometh at the age of twenty one years a tenth, and within eight years after the same payment another tenth to the same John." "Residue to wife Alice who is to be executor." Other bequests for tithes forgotten; for the church bells; for the poor; for the highways; to sister Agnes and two other persons.

      The foregoing wills and a few of the following baptisms are taken from a printed paper by Mr. Henry M. Wheeler, inserted in some of the copies of the Wheeler-Thaxter Genealogy, compiled by himself. The other baptisms from the parish register of Cranfield were extracted by the late Col. Charles E. Banks and have been copied from his papers by permission of his daughter, Mrs. Brinkler, whose aid is gratefully acknowledged. The parish register of Cranfield before 1600 is not extant. Hence it does not seem possible to arrange a pedigree of descent from the John Wheeler who died in 1567. That ther was such descent can hardly be doubted.

      About the year 1600 three men named Wheeler were living in Cranfield, Married and having families. These were Thomas, John, and Richard, "the younger." Thomas was probably the oldest of the three. "Richard the younger" implies an older Richard. We know not how they were related.
