William Edwards


Loyal Member

Looking for the birth/baptism of William, b. abt. 1837, possibly Brixham, devon.

He is a fisherman and the only census I have found him in with his family is in 1891 (he's usually at sea).

It wasn't uncommon for fishermen from the SE and SW to migrate with their families to the Hull area for the work at that time.
