The Handwriting and Deciphering Board says it looks like "retired tradesman".

So nothing new to add.  :(

Pennines - Not to worry, I appreciate all your help. I know so much more now that I did when I started, so that's a bonus for me already.  :)

Maiden Stone - Unfortunately William's brother Edward, born 1837,  died in 1853 at the age of 16. I'm not sure what happened to his sister Rachel, born 1832, as she doesn't show up on any of the censuses either and I cannot find a death for her. I can't think of anything else I can work with.

I think I'm going to go through all your resource suggestions with a fine-toothed comb and if nothing comes of it then I will put William aside for another year or so.

All of your help is greatly appreciated. I will most definitely keep using this chat group for assistance with my future questions. Thanks again - Rowena
