William was probably born about 1734 in Middlewich, Cheshire, as this is where his parents lived (noted on his burial record).

At the time of his marriage he worked as a blacksmith and lived in Witton, some 8 km north.

He married Ann Rylance (known as Nancy) at Witton Parish Chapel on 21 Feb 1762. [1]

From birth and burial records it appears that William and Ann had at least 6 children. [2]
