Summary

This is the William Busby known to have been born and brought up in Oxfordshire. His father was Augustine Busby. His whereabouts after 1861 are unknown, as is the place and date of his death (his wife reported he was alive in 1871).

Notes

One of the many William Busbys from this region at that time. But the only one with a father Augustine. It also seems clear that he married a Hannah and had at least one child with her. However, after 1861, there is no unambiguous information about him. In 1871, Hannah reported him as being alive (location not recorded). If it is the same William Busby who married Harriett Hobbs in 1888, this second marriage would have been bigamous, as Hannah was still alive in 1888.
