  • The main source of information available for the origin of William comes from the 1851 census for Poplar in which he is listed as William Holington (age 65). This is fairly close to the age of 68 given on his death certificate five years later in 1856. It is based on these records that we can estimate that William was born in approximately 1788. From the 1851 census it is also clear that William was born in Suffolk, however the place of birth is unclear. It may be Wetton but no such place in Suffolk is believed to exist and may be Whitton.
