William was born in London on 9 May 1818 and sailed for America in 1845. There is a possibility that it was he who was baptised in Spitalfields Christ Church, Stepney in November 1818 son of Edward and Mary Butler. Edward was a weaver. There is the further possibility that Edward was the son of William Butler who married Jemima Chamberland in the same church.
William married a British girl, Mary Ann Stokes (Stuke). He is said to have had a brother named Samuel.
Am keen to learn anything about William's family in Britain.
