In 1825 William was described as a Weaver. In the census return for 1841 he was living at Break Hart Hill, North Nibley, was working as a Farmer.

His Mother, Susannah Perrett was living near to her son William Perrott and his family at Break Hart Hill at the time of the 1841 census and she was described then as aged seventy years. With her was their daughter, thirteen-year-old Susana, a farm servant.

On 10th April 1847 William Perrett II died at Break Hart Hill, North Nibley. The death certificate recorded that he was a fifty-five-year-old Farmer. The cause of death was given as Consumption Throughout (?) not certified. Edward Page, Registrar, registered the death on 12th April and the informant was Abraham Perrett of North Nibley who was present at the time of death.

William Perrett was buried on 14th April. His widow, Rebecca followed and was buried at North Nibley on 15th December 1847, aged fifty-four-years.

Administration was granted to his son Adam Perrett:

‘Appeared personally Adam Perrett of Dursley in the County of Gloucester, Cordwainer, and alleged on oath that William Perrett, late of North Nibley in the County of Gloucester, Farmer, deceased on 10th April 1847 in testate leaving goods, chattels and credits wholly within the jurisdiction of the Consistory Court of Gloucester under the value of £100. That he is the natural and lawful son and one of the next of kin of the said deceased. That he will well and faithfully administer the good, chattels and credits of the said deceased and render an inventory and account.

Adam Perrett of Dursley, Cordwainer; David Perrett, of Dursley, Common Brewer and James Mason of the City of Gloucester, Farmer signed the papers.

  1. Perry in his book ‘The Woollen Industry in Gloucestershire to 1914’ mentions:

‘Timothy Exell, known throughout the clothing districts as the ‘King of the Weavers’, and the other officials of the Union presented the clothiers with a list of minimum wage rates and awaited a response. The weavers were disappointed, for their demand coincided with the deepening of the financial crisis in early 1825, when all clothiers were in difficulties and many were going out of business. The weavers then decided to try to enforce their demand by means of strike action. Mass meetings were called and , on 29th April, six thousand workpeople gathered on Selsley Common near Stroud, and a further three thousand on Stinchcombe and Breakheart Hills between Dursley and Wotton-under-Edge; the numbers may have been exaggerated but the attendance was certainly impressive enough to alarm clothier-magistrates. It had been arranged that weavers should bring their shuttles with them and give them to union officials who buried them in secret places. All weaving was thus prevented, bringing the whole industry to a standstill. Large parties of weavers toured the valleys ‘persuading’ those who had not come to the meetings to surrender their shuttles; there seems to have been no actual violence. …’

Simon Herrick, ‘Rowley’ and ‘The Spot I love’: Rowland Hill and the Wotton Tabernacle,

‘In 1814 at the age of 70, Rowland Hill began to feel a little tired, so he engaged a young Welsh preacher, Theophilus Jones, to succeed him eventually at Wotton, but it was not to be for another nineteen years that Jones would have the chance to do so. When at last he did, the succession lasted only two weeks – by the cruellest of ironies the Welshman died of pneumonia contracted at Rowland Hill’s funeral in London.’  ….
