[509] BIOGRAPHY: High bailiff in 1629. Edward Phelps (b.1615) was three times Bailiff of Tewkesbury in the period 1650-1670. Two brothers Nicholas Smithsend (1614-1697) and Richard Smithsend (b.1620) were each twice Town Bailiff in the same period. The position of Bailiff was the same as that of Mayor and in Tewkesbury there were always two Bailiffs who served jointly for a year. The Bailiffs' ceremonial rods from this period are on display in the Tewkesbury Museum. Edward and Hester lived in Twining and Edward is referred to in documents as Edward Phelps of Twining. They are both buried in Twining. The memorial tells us quite a lot about them. Here lyeth the body of Robert Phelps Gent. who departed this life, the 18th May 1749. Aged 72 years Here lye also the Bodies of Smithsend and Millicent Son and daughter of Edward Phelps of this Parish Grandchildren of the aforesaid Robert Phelps Here lyeth the Body of Esther, Wife of Edward Phelps and mother of the aforesaid Infants and Daughter of John Smithsend of London Gent. who died March 30th 1734 Aged 38 years
