Primary events

Secondary circumstances

  • Occupation: William was a market man. In the 1830 directory, he was a poulterer operating in Excise Office Row. See exhibit.
  • Will_not: William Culling died without leaving a will. In documents dated 23 November 1831 William EBDEN the elder (shoemaker) was the executor, along with William CULLING (cutler) and Abraham VINE (cordwainer) who were bondsmen to the letter of administration. All were living in Great Yarmouth at the time. The testator left effects valued under £50.
Brushes with the LAW

In 1826 William was a Sherriff's Officer AND a poulterer, residing in Excise Office Row. The Mayor, who was on the receiving end of some 'good information', had organised a warrant to search William's premises. They found no less than 28 brace of partridges, a hare, and 5 gate nets. William, who was also in the receiving end of some good information had legged it out the window as the Officer COBLE was coming in the door. He was fined in absentia £285, which I would say was a considerable amount at the time.4

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: William's marriage was surely to Elizabeth CURTIS 7th January 1811 in Lodden. One witness was William REEDER.5
