Notes: In 1837 William Cantwell wrote out his will, and from this we can see who his children were at that time. They were: 1Stephen b.1811, 2William b.1796, 3Charles b.1816, 4John b.1821, 5Joseph b.1821/22, 6James b.1829/30, 7, Elizabeth b. 1809/11 (Wife of Thomas Dumbleton), and 8, Ann b. 1817/19. parish records state William died on Aug 5 1841, but certificate states certified Sept. He is aged 66. He died 2nd August 1841, and left all that he owned to be administered by Susan. The death was witnessed by (James?) Cook. However it appears that Susan is deceased by July 12, 1857, and on 7th November the will is annexed and granted to Elizabeth (Nee Cantwell) Dumbleton to administer.
