The master builder John Wayne is traditionally carried on the rolls of The Carpenters' Company as a member elected prior to the earliest surviving Company records of the 1760s. Wayne died in 1765, and letters of administration were issued to Thomas and Samuel Williams and Abraham Wayne. The builder had probably been ill for some time; Isaac Wayne advertised in the Pennsylvania Gazette on 15 March 1764, that monies owed to John Wayne, house carpenter, should be paid to him, Lester Falkner and Nathaniel Richards.
