STEVENS May 9, at the Workhouse, Newbury, William Stevens, aged 57.


William’s headstone stated that he was from Heath and Reach in Bedfordshire but had died in Newbury.


It is possible that William was baptized on 20 January 1822 at Heath and Reach with parents Thomas and Elizabeth Stevens. Unfortunately, it has not been possible to trace this William in the 1851, 1861 and 1871 censuses.
