Edward S. 
Wallis
1773 - 1844


Edward S. 
Wallis
, of 11 Montague Place, Bryanston Square, London, formerly of York, England (Burton Grange?), Attorney-at-Law, Propr. of " The Tablet " (purch. 1840 with Fred. Lucas & Jos. Quin (his step-daughter's husband) ). He was surgeon to the York Dispensary from 1801 and medallist. He was fined for Sheriff on 21 Sept. 1829 (Skaife). 1823 Baines Directory for York shows him as a surgeon at Petergate. "His energy - as much as that of his wife - survived, can be seen to continue in his descendents for the next 150 years. Born, brought up at the height of an understanding seeking expression - many believed they were finding it - first in the American & then in the French Revolution - that 'Age of Enlightenment' - his life speaks of a man, a generation open to change. The acceptance of any Enlightenment - about anything - offered a freedom which as a true and loyal Englishman he was ready to challenge. The memory of his uncle, George Wallis (1740-1802), would surely have reminded him always of the odds stacked against him doing very much, his inheritance as a papist telling him that man changes not but for compassion, compassion for himself, as for others found in doing no more and no less than those 'good works' Victorians later would live their lives by - a particularly English quality." (PvM) Marriages witnesses: William Hutchinson Hearon and George Dalton. Possible mention as a subscriber in 1833, address York, Esq., to A Topographical Dictionary of England "Catholic Ancestor, Vol. 8, No. 5, June 2001, p.201" gives 22 Feb 1844 as death date. The obituary was in 1845. His will was proved in London Jul 27 1844 and Sep 15 1845 Baine's 1823 gives: "The Dispensary is a small building, situated in St. Andrewgate, of the same nature as the County Hospital, though unconnected with it. Its objects are to dispense gratuitously advice, medicine, and surgical assistance, to those who are unable to pay for them. This establishment, which was opened on the 28th of March, 1788, has continued to flourish through a period of four and thirty years, and has, out of 42,488 patients, effected cures upon 28,851 of them. (Note: Medical and chirurgical attendance are given every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, at eleven o'clock, and medicines dispensed gratis to all proper objects, recommended by an annual subscriber of half-a-guinea or upwards, or by a donator of ten guineas or upwards. Patients incapable of attending in person are visited at their own houses.) The expense of this establishment last year amounted to £433. and the number of patients admitted and remaining on the books was 2054, exclusive of 648 children inoculated without cost for the Cow-pox (Note: The hour of attendance for vaccination, is Tuesday morning between nine and ten o clock.) The officers are Dr. Beckwith Dr. Wake, and Dr. Goldie, physicians; Mr. Atkinson, Mr. Drake, and Mr. E. Wallis, surgeons; Mr. Allen, treasurer; and Mr. Wilson, apothecary.

Old Yorkshire, 1820 --------------- April 7. – Between eleven and twelve at night, as Mr Edward Wallis, surgeon, York, was proceeding on horseback to Fulford, and had got within about fifty yards of the lane leading to Fulford Church, a man laid hold of his horse's bridle and exclaimed, “Have you got any money for me? You must give me your money!” Mr Wallis immediately gave the fellow three or four blows with his stick, which broke in consequence. The villain then struck him several times with a bludgeon, and knocked him off his horse. Whilst he was down the robber said, “Lay on the ground – give me your money – don't make a noise!” On Mr Wallis attempting to get up, he received a severe blow on the head and again fell. Finding, at length, that resistance was vain, he informed the villain that he would deliver up his money. He was then permitted to rise from the ground, and, whilst he was giving the fellow some silver, the villain snatched his gold watch from his fob, and immediately ran off towards York. Mr Wallis was much bruised in several parts of the body, but did not fare so badly as might have been expected. A reward of 20 guineas was offered for the arrest of the offender. -------------------
