Research Notes

Theory: 1841 census: East Lane, Bermondsey; parents John and Mary, father a shipowner. Maybe the ship(s) handed down to William when he turned 21?
"England and Wales Census, 1841," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MQKZ-TV8 : 22 May 2019), William Watkins in household of John Watkins, Bermondsey, Surrey, England, United Kingdom; from "1841 England, Scotland and Wales census," database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives, Kew, Surrey.

Theory: The marriage to Annette is possibly a second marriage.

1851 census has a William married to Emma. She is from Whitechapel and is 31 in the 1851. He is a shipowner. (Big clue?)
"England and Wales Census, 1851," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGJN-KB4 : 11 September 2019), William Watkins, Saint Mary In The Castle, Sussex, England; citing Saint Mary In The Castle, Sussex, England, p. 36, from "1851 England, Scotland and Wales census," database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives of the UK, Kew, Surrey.

Marriage: England & Wales marriage registration: Stepney [district], Volume 2, Page 361, March quarter 1848, William WATKINS and Emma GLASCOTT

Death of Emma: England & Wales death registration: Poplar [district], Volume 1c, Page 391, June quarter 1857, age 36. Is this her?
