William Edward Hewitt born about 1861

#24
great great grandfather of Kristina Hewitt, Tiffany Hewitt, Brandon Gilby, Sandra Foster

William was born about 1861 in Sheffield, England.  He was the son of William Hewitt and Harriet Hudson.

William was located in the 1861 census in Sheffield, Yorkshire, England.

William was located in the 1871 census in Sheffield, Yorkshire, England.

So far I have been unable to locate William in the 1881 census.

William married Florence Nightingale Slack in 1891 in Sheffield, England.  Florence had been previously married to Frederick Bradshaw in 1880 and widowed with a son Benjamin Bradshaw.

William was located in the 1891 census in Nether Hallam, Yorkshire, England.

William was located in the 1901 census in Nether Hallam, Yorkshire, England.  His widowed mother Harriet is living with his family.

After the 1901 census I haven't found any records of William.  He may have died in England.

There is a death record for a William Hewitt who was born about 1861 and died in Sheffield, England in 1903.  That record might be for this William Hewitt.

He isn't living with his wife and son in 1921 in the 1921 Census of Canada.

The children of William Edward Hewitt and Florence Nightingale Slack include:

Theresa Hewitt
