    Notes 
    • Although William was baptised as William Henry Walker it is increasingly likely that Jeremiah Baldwin was his father. All subsequent records list him as Baldwin and in the 1851 census he states he is a musician and born "America New York" !!! His father Jeremiah was black as was his grandfather Levi who was born in America, possibly New York.
