bullet  Notes:

William was probably the eldest surviving son, and inherited property in Salford from his parents. His will shows that he was a farmer, and owned extensive holdings of land in Salford when he died in 1698. He had four children with each of his two wives. The name of his first wife is not known: they had three sons and one daughter. Their two eldest sons Ralph and William were their father's joint executors and main beneficiaries - Ralph remained in Salford while William moved to Windrush in Gloucestershire. Their only daughter was Mary; and their youngest son was Cornelius (qv), who also remained in Salford.

William remarried in 1685 to Elizabeth Colborn: they had one son and three daughters. Their son James was a farmer in Salford, and the ancestor of the current Fawdry family in Salford. Their daughters were Elizabeth, who left a will when she died in 1711; Sarah; and Hannah who married William Godfrey of Little Compton.
