William Amos, Wycombe
« on: Thursday 30 September 04 07:28 BST (UK) »
Seeking any information about William (born Clapham, London 1809, died Wycombe 1892) and his family - I know of his daughter, Mary/Mary Ann. William married in 1839, was a superintendent in Inland Revenue, and was the son of Henry Amos and Jennett Adamson.
