Hannah appears to have died in 1841. At the census William was living in Send with several of his children plus a granddaughter, Lydia, Louisa’s illegitimate child. Two of his daughters had married.

In 1843 William married a widow, Sarah Ayling, and in 1851 they were living in Ripley with William’s son Samuel and two of Sarah’s children. William was receiving parish relief.

William continued to live in Ripley with Sarah and he died in either 1862 or 1864.
