My 4th great grandfather was Edward Boys KNOWLES, bapt. 1 April 1792 atSt. Alphege, Canterbury.According to family tradition he was Chief Clerk at the Admiralty,and also Transport Officer to William IV, to whom he was PrivateSecretary at the time of the King's tour of the Naval Dockyards.How can I check up on these claims?The only other thing I know is that he married Esther STONE at Bexley,Kent, 26 June 1817, and two of their children (Edward Hadarezer KNOWLESand John James KNOWLES) were baptized at Bexley on 9 October 1822.
