    Notes 
    • William's (step) grand-daughter has this to say about him:
      "I knew my step grandad well and he was a lovely man. He was a superb horserider. He took me to all the horse race meetings he could get to and taught my mother to ride, buying her a good horse. He was in the Cavalry in Ceylon at Kandy and as wonderful artist he (often) sketched the local people. He ran away from home at age 11, said he was 16 and joined the army. He had absconded from school as much as possible and never learned to read or write. He was strong, tall and handsome and helped by doing the farm work."
