William was born on 28th March 1858 at 123 Great College Street, Camden Town, London, to William and Sophia Buxton [1],[4],[6]. In 1881 he was living with his parents and siblings at 91 Huddleston Road, London and was employed as a railway clerk [1]. In about 1882, he married Kate Shepard [3],[7], and in 1884 their first child was born. By this time, William was described as an Artist.

By 1901, William was Managing Director of a Fine Art publishing company, and lived with his family at "Rose Dene", 98 Dollis Rd, Finchley [3].

William was also an accomplished painter, and his works are seen in the galleries from time to time. A watercolour of the seafront at Bosham, Portsmouth, is currently (2003) offered for sale by a Swedish gallery for Kr3500 (about 300). He lived for a time in Hastings, and in 1997 there was an exhibition of his work at the Hastings Art Gallery [5].
