I believe William Lawson was born around 1847 Sheffield to William & Elizabeth Lawson. His was listed with his family Age 4 in the 1851 Census but I can find no other record of him. He was not listed in his father's will.

No mention of him or cant find him as it appears he died in 1854.

Do you have names for his siblings?
All I have is the names in the attached document - Joseph Henry, Edward Arthur, Maria Louisa, Ellen Wilson(Thackeray) and William Webster Lawson's wife Elizabeth. This is what I am trying to find out. I think John Lawson (born 1795/96) re married Henrietta Wilson sometime after his wife Ann Webster died. John Lawson & Ann Webster were married 2 May 1816 Cathedral St Peter Sheffield.
