Sect. IV. — Alexander Wedderburn in Exeter and his /ami!?/, 1782 — 1891.
I have not succeeded in tracing the parentage of this individual, but according to
the information given me by his son's widow, the family were from Berwick. His male
line became extinct on the death s.p. of his only son in 1886, and the account of the
family may thus be very briefly given.
Alexander Wedderburn was born in 1782, and was long resident in Exeter, being Inspector of
mails in the Western District for the General Post Office. He died at Longbrook Street, S. David's,
Exeter, 16 Feb. 1853 set. 71 (Gent. Mag. xxxix, p. 450 and Somerset House Reg.). His will, dated 21 Oct.
1852, describing him as " retired inspector of mail coaches," was proved in London, March 1853
(L.W. 26). He had married about 1799 Ruth House, and by her, who was born in 1776 and died set. 84,
at 1, Cleveland Road, Islington, 2 May 1860 {Gent. Mag. vol. viii, p. 643), had issue one son aud four
daughters, viz. : —
1 Her Christian name is variously given in the registers .
