William Wilding is my great grandfather, who is born in Kettlebaston, Suffolk in 1851.
Aged 10 in 1861 census
In 1871, he is an unmarried 20 year old lodger, at Raydon , Suffolk. As Mary Ann Cole is a servant in Ipswich in 1871, I wonder if they meet when she returns to see her family living in Raydon. They marry in 1875, in Raydon.
In the 1881 Census, Suffolk is shown as his birth place, although I have traced him back to Kettlebaston where a considerable number of Wildings lived. They are living somewhere in Hemley. By 1886 he has moved to Chelmsford, according to birth details of children. Obviously, before 1901, he morts.
William aged 42, dies before September,1895 according to the civil registration list.
William married Mary Ann Cole, daughter of John Cole and Sarah Bird, on 10 Apr 1875 in Raydon, Samford. (Mary Ann Cole was born on 23 Jul 1854 in Raydon Suffolk and was buried in 1941 in Crow Lane cemetary, Romford.)
In presnce of Mary Wilding, who signs her name and the mark of John Wilding. Both fathers are shown as Labourers.
