Noted events in his life were:
• Conflict in birth dates. 1636,1639 Tudor.com shows William's birth date to be 1229 in Flotmanby, Yorkshire, England. The birth year of his son William is consistent in both sources to be 1245. If William was born in 1229, he would have been 16 when his son William was born. This is possible but unlikely so I have chosen to record the dates shown in Wikitree.
