William Cornwell of Glandford
William was born in Letheringsett in about 1781. He was an agricultural labourer and lived in Glandford where he and his wife are known to have had at least four children:
|Robert||31 Dec 1815|
The earliest record I have of William is the 1841 census by which time he was already a widower. He was still there in 1851 with his daughter, Susan. Two of his sons, Robert and William, were living nearby.
Of their children:
- Robert married Martha and lived in Glandford.
- William, an agricultural labourer, married Susannah (born 1828) from Stiffkey. They had the following children in Glandford:
Maria 1850 Mary Ann 1852 Elizabeth 1855 Caroline 1857 Susannah 1859 Mary Ann 1861 Hannah 1866
- Their eldest daughter, Maria, married William Henry Bishop, a mariner and grandson of William Benjamin Bishop, in Cley in 1872.
