According to the IGI William had a wife Margaret and they produced seven children all baptised between 1799 and 1810 at St George the Martyr, Southwark, London. Just where the couple married and Margaret’s origins are currently not known – any suggestions ? In 1804 William became an active follower of the Devon born prophetess Joanna Southcott who he may have known previously in the Exeter area. Although not one of her innermost circle of followers in 1805 William was given the task of building a Southcott chapel in Duke Street, St Georges Fields in London and later became the minister there. It is recorded that an Elizabeth Tozer attended meetings with him in the 1820’s but who she was is not clear. William died in 1828.
