George is listed after all of them, with William 2 after him, so presumably he's William's father.

I expect that's this couple, RG - so not the William Kenneth is asking about, although probably some relation.

****
EDIT:
Having investigated further in this post, it's hard to know which William is which.

:

Marriages Dec 1899 (>99%)
Feakins William Cranbrook 2a 1737
Woolgar Ada Cranbrook 2a 1737


Births Sep 1875 (>99%)
Woolgar Ada Cranbrook 2a 646


The William married to Ada was born in Lenham, but in 1863 (per 1911), 1862 (per 1901)
