William left the family for another woman. He apparently tried to return but his brother Richard would not allow Ada to have him back. No further information was kept by the family but Richard must have become the "father" because Stephen and Albert give him as their father in original documents.

William's death was notified by his "wife" (no details about a divorce so she may have been his common law wife).
