William was Sergeant-at-Mace of the City of London.
The noble house of Paget, of which her Grace the Duchess of Richmond is a scion, is of Staffordshire origin. William Paget, born at Wednesbury, in that county, settled in London in the reign of Henry VIII., and served the office of serjeant-at-mace, in those days a function of high respectability.
A SKETCH OF THE HISTORY OF THE PAGET FAMILY THE FIRST BARON PAGET
IT would seem from the most ancient authorities that I have been able to consult, and from the tradition given in Collins' Peerage of 1735, that the family of Paget was anciently seated in Staffordshire and can be traced back to one Lewis Paget, a gentleman of the county, who in the eleventh year of Henry VII signed a certificate relating to the office of Master of
the Game of Canker wood.
One of the family, possibly one of Lewis Paget's brothers, William Paget, who was born near Wednesbury, in Staffordshire, removed to London and there became Serjeant at Mace to the city. Mr. Paget had four children: William his eldest son, John, Robert, and a daughter Anne who was married to a gentleman of the prosaic name of Smith.
