William Bayley

William Bayley was the oldest of the nine children of Richard Bayley and his second wife Frances Flower of Wicken, Cambridgeshire, England.

William married Mary Jackson - one of 'three twins' (or triplets as they should probably have written) of Wicken, and the couple went on to have ten children between 1779 and 1800 - all of which were baptised at the parish church.

William pre-deceased his wife by 38 years, when their youngest daughter, Sophia was less than a year old. Sophia was buried just a few weeks later, leaving Mary to grieve for the loss of her son and daughter whilst providing for their 9 surviving children.
