Their first child in the Hornchurch Parish records record Mary Ann as Hannah, this is obviously a mistake on the recorder. Later entries for 1862 onwards show William as from Romford, whereas the earlier christening entries record him as a Farmer from Hornchurch, see RG115/1/10 for all of these.
By 1901, many of the children have finally left Maylands and married, also having their own farms.
Aged 68 in his death registration. He is shown as being of Noak Hill, Romford and buried in Hornchurch

At their marriage, William is 21, a Labourer, and Mary Anne King is 20.
The witnesses to this marriage are John Littlechild and a John Strutt (he is often a witness)
