William was born in 1821 and was buried in 1910 in Gooderstone, Norfolk. 

William married Elizabeth Clark and had five children: Mary Ann, Eliza, Joseph Clark, Alfred and Julia.

William was different from his father and grandfather as his occupation was Farmer, instead of labourer. On a census he is listed as employing one man (Joseph Clark, his son).

His wife Elizabeth was called Betsie by the family, and was known locally as a 'horse healer'.  She kept her own coffin in the front room and frequently had afternoon naps in it!

Alfred their son, died of a horse bite while still in his 40s.
