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.

They were first cousins. After they eloped and were married, they went on an around the world honeymoon which would take over three years to complete. They were in India when Ellen ate contaminated fruit and died of Cholera. The grief-stricken Anson had his wife's body embalmed, placed in a metallic coffin, then in an ebony casket, and brought home to St. Simon's Island, Georgia. Anson restored the Episopal church on St. Simon's Island, which had been ruined by Union troops during the Civil War, using the $200,000 he inherited from his wife upon her death. He had his own money though he never was profligate with it. His wife was placed in a lead vault under the altar of the church, and he finished the building as a memorial to her. She was to rest there until the time came for him to join her.
