William Lythell Dewsbury
William Dewsbury was the oldest and 'illegitimate' son of Rebecca Lythell of Stretham, Cambridgeshire. However, in the year of his birth, his mother married Mr William Dewsbury whom it would seem, was the father. The following year, William jnr, is listed with the Dewsbury surname but the year after that, he appears alongside his 'half'-brother, George Dewsbury, as William Lithall, son of Rebecca Lithall.
After this baptism, he appears to continue his life as a Dewsbury. By the time of the 1851 Census, William was "employed in field" with his brother George, whilst the younger children of the family went to school. He continued to work as an agricultural labourer, like William Dewsbury Snr and three of his brothers.
He re-appears in 1866 in nearby Witchford where he married Hannah Watson. In the marriage register, he is named as William Lythell Dewsbury, again referencing his Lythell origins but his father is noted as William Dewsbury, labourer.
He is noted as living on East Street, Stretham by the time of the 1891 census with his wife Hannah (born in Witchford) and six of their twelve children.
William predeceased Hannah by 24 years.
