William Blake, sometime postmaster at Old Windsor
« on: Tuesday 23 February 21 21:35 GMT (UK) »
I did a google search for him and there were some posts on Tapatalk about him but I didn't want to join that.   William married Ann Wickens (var. Wiggins) and their daughter Alice married Edward Lorkin.  Their daughter Edith Lorkin was my maternal grandmother who married Francis John Bonham.

I have a considerable genealogy of these families if anyone is interested of is looking for a connection.
