Notes:  In 1881 William worked as a draper, tailor, and outfitter — and resided at London House in Ilminster parish of Somerset, England.  William was 31, the oldest, and the head of a 7-person household there — that consisted of himself, his new wife Christian, his brother Edwin Walter Palmer, two assistants, a nephew Robert John Pullman age 10, and a servant.  Four of these 7 persons worked at his clothing and outfitting business.

In 1890 William and Christian moved their family to Canada.  By 1891 the family was settled in the Rural Municipality (RM) of Franklin in the province of Manitoba.  William became a diary farmer and remained a farmer for the rest of his life.
