  • Notes 
    • William Henry Waylett was baptized a Mormon September 25, 1852 by Bernard Parry of Abergele and became a member of the fledgling Church in that town. He was ordained a Seventy on January 11, 1854 by L. W. Babit of the 18th Quorum. He emigrated to Utah together with twelve others from Abergele led by Edward Parry. This contingent from Abergele, part of a larger party of 314 Saints, sailed from Liverpool aboard the ship Jersey on 5 February 1853 bound for New Orleans. They arrived at that port on 21 March after a voyage of almost seven weeks to find that cholera was raging in the town. There they transferred their baggage onto a river steamer for the long journey up the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers to Keokuk in Iowa. There they outfitted to join the Joseph W. Young wagon train to cross the plains. Leaving Keokuk on 3 Jun the party arrived safely at Salt Lake City after facing great difficulties and much hardship on 10 October 1853.

      William is listed as a single man on the passenger list of the ship but was married on board by the ship Captain on 11 February 1853, to Sarah, the 17 year old daughter of Rees Williams and his wife Leah, who were also to emigrate at a later date.

      In 1863 William returned to Wales on Church business and was then called as President of the Welsh mission 1864-65.
