      On his death certification, it states his age was 73, he lived at Pool close Pinxton. The informant was H. A. Snowden, His Daughter in attendance, she lived at 2, Town street Pinxton.
      For some reason William was left out of his wife's will.
      He is buried in an unmarked grave in Pinxton churchyard.
      For some reason William's birth certificate states his name as John Derbyshire Wilson. Blackwell Reg no 7, 141.

      Pinxton:
      The first recorded history of Pinxton dates back to AD 1002 when it was given, together with the neighbouring village of South Normanton, by its owner Wulfric Spott to Burton Abbey. Following the Norman Conquest, it was held by Drago Fitz Ponce (Ponce's fun or Penkeston) under the Feudal Lord William Peverill (the illegitimate son of William the Conqueror).

      Pinxton was built on coal; the well known Top Hard coal seam outcropping to the west of the village.

      Pinxton can boast one of the most famous porcelain manufacturers in the country; Pinxton china, manufactured between 1795 - 1816 commands enormous prices in quality antique markets.

      Another local feature is Pinxton Wharf. This was the terminus of the Cromford Canal which linked the collieries to the River Trent via. the Erewash Canal. The canal was built in the 1780's by William Jessop to carry coal and pottery but use declined with the coming of the railways. The wharf was landscaped and is now a wildlife sanctuary. The nearby Boat Inn was used as the ticket office for the Pinxton South railway station.

      Brookhill Hall, the family home of the former Lords of the Manor, the Cokes, has its origins in Elizabethan times. Much of its former fine oak carved furnishings made specially for the Hall are some of the finest examples of its type in the country and are now housed in the British Museum.

      In the late nineteenth century a resident of Pinxton, John King, invented and patented a detaching hook for mine cages which prevented "overwinds" and is credited with saving the lives of a great many miners. A small museum is established in the village dedicated to him and a memorial in the form of the colliery headstocks with a "detaching hook" situated at the crossroads as you enter the village from the motorway.
