William was aged 83 years when he died in 1901 and this tallies with the documented birth year 1818. However, this makes William aged 11 years when he was convicted. The documentation from Shropshire Record Office and on arrival in Sydney in 1831 gives his age as 21, which would make his birth year 1911; therefore, year of birth is uncertain. In 1837 he was in Merton, Victoria, with JP Pickering. In 1850 in Gawler, South Australia, he married Emily Burling and they had at least 9 children, the elder of whom were born in South Australia and the younger in Rushworth, Victoria. William died in 1901 in Rushworth.
