William was 22 years old on arrival and had hazel eyes, dark red hair, and a fair ruddy complexion.

10/6/1861: Married Charlotte Albury in Sutton Forest and they had 10 children. Charlotte Albury was born 23/12/1819 in East Farleigh, Kent, the daughter of John Albury and Ann Ralph and died 25/10/1891 in Moss Vale, NSW of unspecified causes.

William and Charlotte lived all their married life in Sutton forest on the Medway Rivulet, where William worked as a carpenter.

He died a 48-year-old farmer, from inflammation of the bowels from which he had suffered one week. His death certificate (sp. Byrnes) states that his father was James Byrnes, and that the father was a carpenter and joiner.

For the last few years of his life, William suffered an illness which could not at the time be identified. Aware of his condition, he made his will in April 1860 in the presence of Thomas Keeffe and Alexander McGowan. leaving to Charlotte his landed and personal property together with all cattle, horses, drays, furniture, goods and chattels. To each of his five sons he bequeathed one tenth share of the cattle and horses, an in perpetuity his landed property except the alltoments in sutton forest which were left to Charlotte. To his eldest son, William, he also left one team of horses, to James on team of bullicks, an to each daughter he allowed investments to provide them with a dowry, should they marry.

William was buried in the grounds of St Patricks Catholic Church at Sutton Forest. On 2 August probate of goods valued at 700 pounds was granted to Charlotte.
