married unknown in an unknown year. Known children:
married Elizabeth Curtis (1838 - unknown) at St John Baptist Church, Summertown ,Oxford, in 1858. Known children
When William and Elizabeth married they were 22 years and 21 years old respectivley. William was working as a bricklayer (as he would throughout his life) and Elizabeth was working as a laundress. William gave his address as being Charlton, Kent. Their marrage was witnessed by George Curtis, Elizabeth's brother, and Ellen Spendlove.
In 1881, according
to the census, the family
were living in Plumstead, Kent. William, born in Lambeth, was working
as a bricklayer. William's wife, Elizabeth was born in Oxford. The
children were born in a variety of places - Sydenham, Croydon, Penge,
Lambeth and Plumstead.
I have been unable
to find Elizabeth and the younger children in the 1891 census, while
William was lodging elsewhere in Plumstead, along with his son William.
The 1901 census gives William and Elizabeth living together in the same
house as their daughter Eliza Coulter and her family. Eliza was a
witness at Alice and George's marriage.
