Records of the Honiton Waits


Although Honiton is in the "Where Waits" list, we have no actual historical records of them on the site. Here is an actual example. The book is by David Allen.

Culture in Eighteenth Century England: A Subject for Taste, by Jeremy Black (2005), ISBN 1 85285 463 4.
"Laying the foundation for a new church in Honiton, built within the town, led in 1743 to a procession begun by the 'town musick' and, at the close of the ceremony, to the singing of the Jubilate."
