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 baptised in Woodnesborough, Kent, England on 5 Aug 1827 and 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 22 Nov 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 7 Apr 186110; at Rear of Southwood Lodge, St Lawrence, Thanet on 2 Apr 18719; and at 3 Providence Cottage, St Lawrence, Thanet on 5 Apr 18914.
He died on 11 Jun 1898 at 1 Pear Tree Cottages, St Lawrence, Thanet5,6 (morbis Cordis) and was buried at St Lawrence on 15 Jun 18988.
