Hi

My 3xgreat grandfather was William Taylor born about 1823 in Wimbish, Essex.

He was baptised 22 Feb 1824 son of Allen and Ann Taylor.

He is on the 1851, 1861 and 1871 censuses in Canewdon, Essex. His wife Mary Ann and baby son John are both buried in Canewdon in August 1871 on the same day.

For ages I have tried to find a death after 1871 to no avail but now there is a breakthrough. Opinions please?

A William Taylor is buried in 1898 in Canewdon, Essex aged 81. Born about 1817. And a William Taylor is in the Rochford Workhouse aged 74 in the 1891 census. He gives his place of birth as Saffron Walden which is near Wimbish and Rochford is right near Canewdon.

Any ideas as this looks like it is a major brickwall being demolished before my very eyes.

Ben
