1841 Census: William (aged 25) was farming at Shute, Bishopsteignton, Devon. Four years later he was dead from Typhus Fever.
After Katherine's death, William seemed to be farming at Shute, Bishopsteignton. William Jnr. was being looked after in the village. His death was reported by Jane Vinal Walter, aged 19, who was present at the death. In 1851 she was a visitor at Woolsgrove, Bishopsteignton, the farm of James Cornish. She married William Splatt in Bishopsteignton, and her married life seemed to take her around the country, though she was staying with the Cornish family again in 1861. How did she come to be at the death of William? In 1891 Splatt was described as a Marine Surveyor.
William married Katherine Loye, daughter of Philip Loye and Mary Randall, on 20 Jun 1839 in Stokenham, Devon. (Katherine Loye was born 1820 - circa in Stokenham, Devon, christened on 12 Mar 1820 and died 30 May 1840 - aged 19 in Bishopsteignton, Devon.)
