    • Redlynch is some 38 miles from Farley, so it was suprising William made such a long move, but the Redlynch estate belonged to the Earls of Ilchester, as did the Farley and Pitton Estates, so perhaps the new job of Gamekeeper meant moving the family to Redlynch.

    Gamekeeper 
    • The Redlynch estate was owned at this time by the Ilchester Estate, so it seems Williams promotion to Gamekeeper, prompted his move from Farley to Redlynch.
