Aug 16th aged 81 by Rd Reed" (next door to his daughter Marina.)6,2
     Included here to show the headstone in its family context.
I assume, but have not yet found proof, that William's father Sampson is probably a son of Sampson and Joan (BLANCHARD) DAWE.
Several descendants ended up at Willunga in South Australia, with one, Sampson, slate quarrying there. This latter relationship/story depends on Sampson's father John belonging to William's family, not yet proven.8,9

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
