Notes:

1) William Hossack - Birth 29 May 1821 in Banff , before withesses Alexander Glennie and William Hossack

2) The 1851 census shows William Hossack living with his mother as a Draper with 4 apprentices

3) William Hossack died in 1857 at the young age of 35 of "Mania - 10 days". At the time he was staying at the Gordon Arms Hotel in Huntly. His occupation was recorded as being a Draper and Clothier.

4) William died intestate but the 1858 inventory records that he had a 1/64th share of three ships - Coquette, Phoenix and Cyclone. This may have been prompted by his brother Joseph, b. 21st Apr 1825, who was a shipsmaster and was part owner of the Arab, a brig. His wife was Mary Bartlett the illegitimate daughter of a prominent Brewer. They married in 1856 had a 6mth old son William Bartlett Hossack.
