Biography

William was born in 1816. [1]

He was a bricklayer[1] and grocer[2] in Romford, Essex.

He married Catherine Whale in Rochford (near North Shoebury), Essex, in 1938. [3][4]

Catherine was widowed sometime between 1861 and 1871[5], so William died in West Ham in either 1864[6] or 1870[7].
