      I am going to put together timelines for Richard and Henry Kain but meantime can at least answer the Wagstaff part of your email. Richard Wagstaffe and Mary appear to have had six children (source: Ancestry/IGI) Henry bp 1746 Derby [IGI]: Elizabeth bp 26/4/1748 Derby; Charles bp 1749 Derby [IGI]; James bp 1751 Derby [IGI]; Mary bp 10/9/1753 Derby; Ursula bp 4/2/1755 Derby.) Elizabeth married Telford Brearley (bp Halifax 1/4/1746) in Derby on 7th April 1772. Mary married John Cath 27 April 1794 St Botolph Aldersgate and Ursula married John Newton 5 January 1785 St Mary Whitechapel and then Francis Kain 22 June 1809. Henry Wagstaffe predeceased his sisters and left them the house in Derby. I attach Ursula's original will and my transcription of it. The location of the house is definitely Nun's Cross, Derby as I checked with the local library.

      I don't think there was any animosity between Henry and Mary Cath. She wanted her legacy to go to Henry's family and, judging by the careful wording of her will, may have taken legal advice on the subject. Using the Measuring Worth website, the most conservative estimate of the 1832 value of Mary's 50 would have been 4,000 so you can see her anxiety to stop Henry's creditors getting their hands on the money. The ruse would probably have worked.
