William was baptised on September 5, 1742 in Bishop's Waltham, Hampshire, England to John and Mary Mansbridge.

The distance between Bishop's Waltham and Portchester is between 10 and 15 miles. As his occupation is not known, an assumption could be made that he met Sarah in travels around the country side.

William married Sarah Beagley October 17, 1759 in Portchester, Hampshire, England. (No occupation listed) The two witnesses were Thomas Mansbridge (a brother or other relative?) and William Sturges.

It appears that they stayed in Portchester after marriage as all three of their children were born there - Mary 1862, Peter 1864 and Sarah 1867. Marriages of the children indicate that they stayed in the area.

Portchester, once a small village, is now part of the borough of Fareham.

William likely died between 1767 and 1825, in Hampshire.
