Thank you for the death/probate of the husband.
That's a shame!
I don't know what part of Cornwall William died.Might just be a coincidence that he retired there.
I know he lived in Plymouth for a time.

That is really brilliant.Didn't think anyone would ever find him
His name sounded Welsh but you can never be sure !.
He could have died at sea.
Thank you very much for all your help
