John Day was born in Hampshire, England.

John William Day was born in 1873 in Portsea Island, Hampshire, England, United Kingdom. [1]

In 1881, he was living with his mother and sister in St. James's Road, Portsea, Hampshire. [2]

In 1891 he was recorded as Jno Williams Day (18, an engine fitter's apprentice born in Hampshire) living in Meadow Street, Portsea, Hampshire, along with his father, John Day (46, an engine fitter, born in Somerset), mother Emma Day (43, born in Somerset) and sister, Ann Amelia (20, single, dressmaker, born in Portsmouth, Hampshire). [3]

The death of John William Day (age 22) in 1905 D Quarter in ALVERSTOKE Hampshire is clearly either not the correct one, as he was 32 that year, or there was a transcription error. [4]
