This orphan has been claimed by: Fiona Basile

Although I don't have much information about William, having claimed his siblings it seemed unkind to leave him on his own.

His mother, Mary Ann Sainsbury, was described as 'a notorious character' by the courts. She appeared regularly, often on charges of being drunk and disorderly.
