Several births in that name around that date so how do you know this is the right one ?

Did he marry and have you got the cert

Presumably, you got this father's name from his marriage cert?

How do you connect to him?

If we can work back, we can probably find a way to help you

??Samuel Lund 1806 and Sarah 1809 also had a son William Lund @ 1825 he was brother to Sarah Lund/Drake.

I wonder if William 1825 was father to John William Lund.
William at home 1851 but can't find him after.

Thanks everyone for your help. Sidney Lund was my grandfather, on his marriage certificate it states John William Lund was his father. On John's marriage cert it states his father was William Lund.
Frederick Drake and Elizabeth Jowitt were witnesses for John William and Eliza Wood in 1892. Frederick and Elizabeth themselves married in 1894 and Frederick's father was William Drake. In the 1881 and 1891John William was a lodger with William and Sarah Drake.
Sarah Drake was a Lund and her father was Samuel and she had brothers William and Samuel according to the 1851 census. William was 20 years older than Sarah.
The 1851 census is the only information I can find for William. I have no idea who William married or where they lived.
