William Waller, is given in Alumni Oxonlenses, erroneously, as a son of "W. Waller of Newport Paganel, Bucks. pleb." It should be "J. Waller". William matriculated at Wadham Collese, April 5, 1688, B. A. 1691; M. A. from Corpus Christi College, Cambridge 1697, rector of Gressenhall 1700, and of Brisley, Norfolk 1704, and of Walton, Bucks, from 1711 to his death Feb. 18, 1750
