Thomas Wayman (26 October 1833 [1] 8 February 1901) [2] was an English politician.

A politician is a person active in party politics, or a person holding or seeking office in government. In democratic countries, politicians seek elective positions within a government through elections or, at times, temporary appointment to replace politicians who have died, resigned or have been otherwise removed from office. In non-democratic countries, they employ other means of reaching power through appointment, bribery, revolutions and war. Some politicians are experienced in the art or science of government. Politicians propose, support and create laws or policies that govern the land and, by extension, its people. Broadly speaking, a "politician" can be anyone who seeks to achieve political power in any bureaucratic institution.

He was educated in private schools in Halifax. [2] He carried on business as a wool-stapler until 1892. [2] He was Mayor of Halifax from 1872 to 1874 and served as a Justice of the Peace in the borough. [2] He was Liberal MP for nearby Elland from 1885 until he retired due to ill-health in 1899. [1] He retired to Banbury, Oxfordshire, and died there on 8 February 1901, aged 67. [2]

Halifax, West Yorkshire Minster town in West Yorkshire, England

Halifax is a minster town in the Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale in West Yorkshire, England. Historically in the West Riding of Yorkshire, the town has been a centre of woollen manufacture from the 15th century onward, originally dealing through the Piece Hall. Halifax is known for Mackintosh's chocolate and toffee products including Rolo and Quality Street. The Halifax Bank was also founded and is still headquartered in Halifax. Dean Clough, one of the largest textile factories in the world at more than 12 mile (800 m) long, was in the north of the town. The premises have since been converted for office and retail use including a gym, theatre, Travelodge and radio station.


A wool-stapler is a dealer in wool. The wool-stapler buys wool from the producer, sorts and grades it, and sells it on to manufacturers. Staple in this particular context means a market.

In many countries, a mayor is the highest-ranking official in a municipal government such as that of a city or a town.
