  • Birth: He was born on 2 November 1774 in Sutton, St. Helens, Lancashire.
  • Baptism: He was baptised on 9 December 1774 in St Mary the Virgin, Prescot, The original is not easy to read as there are some ink smudges but it looks like he was born on November 22nd and the christenening was a few weeks later on 9 th December 1774. The parents names are clear "Roger Roby collier & his wife Elizabeth".

Census

Note William Roby Id #24,265 (Principal) was at home on Census night; He was 69 when he died, so I have calculated that he was born circa 1747. Then I looked up baptisms in the area - it looks like the nearest is in Ormskirk or Latham (that might be the current Lytham St Anne's) and that's Henry Roby & Lydia - and further evidence is that this works with the birth of Lydia Roby in 1777 who married William Makin.

In 1774, on 22nd November, there is the birth of William Roby, son of Roger Roby (collier) & Alice

Note William Roby Id #24,265 (Principal) was at home on Census night; Whereas I have found a record of a burial of a William Roby in 1810, there is no indication of his age - which would strengthen the conviction that this is indeed William Roby born 1774. So at this stage I am not 100% convinced. I need to get over to St Mary's in Prescot myself to look at the graves.
