Newport in Bygone Days by R J Eldridge, published 1952 by the Isle of Wight
County Press, contains a list of Mayors of Newport from 1607 - before that
date the town was governed by Bailiffs.
The book also includes lists of members of the Corporation 1609 - 1659,
1659 - 1717, 1717 - 1763, 1763 - 1823 and 1823 - 1849.

We have a query - is anything published or available on the internet about
Isle of Wight past Mayors? We think one of our family members may have been
a Mayor DAYE of Newtown or Newport circa mid 1500's but obviously such a
long way back it is difficult to get beyond our Great Great Great
Grandfather JOHN DAY Carrier of Shalfleet also Publican Grocer, Verger and
this is early1800's.
Is anyone doing DAY/DAYE please?
