Hello, This is a bit of a long shot really but I wonder if anyone has come across William Hine Meech. He was born in Burton Bradstock, Dorset, England in 1825. His first wife was Mery Ann Abrahams, his second wife Elizabeth Otter. Although his wives and children appear in each English census, William himself seems to have been absent. I cannot find his death. He seemed to move about a lot, his family living in Dorset, The Channel Islands,Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. He may possibly have changed his name to Williams but I don't know. He just seems to keep in the background all the time. His occupation is usually given as wheelright but occasionally smith which would make sense. Has aanyone come across him anywhere? Thanks.
