Biography

A harbour labourer and the child of Zechariah Lawrence (a labourer) and Ann Cooper, William Lawrence, the great-great-grandfather of Nigel Horne, was born at Word in Worth, Sandwich, Kent, England c. 18271,2,3,4,5, was baptized in Woodnesborough, Kent, England on Aug 5, 1827 and married Johanna Edwards (with whom he had 11 children: George, Mary Carter, William, John, Annie, Elizabeth, Daniel, James, Hannah, Jane and Emily) at St Lawrence, Thanet, Kent, England on Nov 22, 18517.

During his life, he was living in Preston, Kent in 1841 (i don't know if this is this same William Lawrence. But given that both of his parents died when he was 6 this is possible since at age 14 he's not with an adult. But if that is him, where was he between the ages of 6 and 14?); at St Lawrence in 18612; at Chapel Lane, St Lawrence, Thanet on Apr 7, 186110; at Rear of Southwood Lodge, St Lawrence, Thanet on Apr 2, 18719; and at 3 Providence Cottage, St Lawrence, Thanet on Apr 5, 18914.

He died on Jun 11, 1898 at 1 Pear Tree Cottages, St Lawrence, Thanet5,6 (morbis Cordis) and was buried at St Lawrence on Jun 15, 18988.
