William Boundy at West Worlington, North Devon (1844-1907): age 60, 4 songs on 14 Sept 1904: There was a William Boundy in East Worlington but Sharp clearly wrote ‘West Worlington’ in his notes, so we must nominate another William Boundy of that village, as follows:

In 1901 census William Boundy was listed as 'age 54, a postman and shoemaker' at West Worlington (RG13/2140 f95 p4). He was actually baptized on 28/1/1844 at West Worlington, 2nd child of Samuel Boundy, a carter and his wife Mary. William was aged 16, a shoemaker in the 1861 census. In Oct 1877 (ref 5b 765) he married a widow Eliza Cole (née Moolaway) and they had 4 sons. William Boundy died Jan qr 1907 aged 63 (ref 5b 3675).
