  • Notes 
    • William was a prominent member of the Society of Friends or 'Quakers' which he embraced to the extent that in 1678 he, with three other friends, funded and purchased the Meeting House at Codnor Breach, Derbyshire 'as a meeting house and burial ground for the use of the people of God called Quakers for ever'. The deed excluded the heirs and successors from any claim in the property.
      William's property at Newmanleys was also used for many years as a Meeting House.
