    Notes 
    • Buried aged 61, of Bond End. The burial appears in the Nuneaton burials register but I can't find an equivalent BMD Nuneaton death index entry. There's one for William Wheway in Q2 1859 but it refers to Hinckley 7a/37. William's death could have been registered in Hinckley - some of his children were born there in the 1840s.

      When son William was baptised in Nuneaton in 1828, William was a frame work knitter of Wheat Lane.
