Other information

William was baptised on 11 September 1836 in Parish of St James in the County of Cumberland, NSW.

William lived at Sussex Street, Sydney as a child, and lived in Camperdown by 1858. Later he lived in Concord (Princes Avenue Concord Road (East side)).

William was found dead in Mrs Walker's Bush, Concord. No cause of death was noted.

William was buried on 9 October 1896 in Concord Roman Catholic Cemetery Sydney. In 1938, all graves at this cemetery were moved to Rookwood Cemetery.

While William's birth certificate indicated that his mother was Ann Collins, his marriage and death certificates record his mother as Amelia Sophia Clark. This may be explained by a second marriage of Alfred Abbott after the death of Ann Collins or after separation.
