Person Details
Hougham Lincolnshire
He was the son of Edmund and Millicent Gascoyne of Hougham and the brother of George, Edmund and Richard Gascoyne. Edmund Gascoyne became William's sole legatee. In 1911 Edmund lived with his wife Florence Elizabeth and children John Thomas Brackenbury and Edward Lambert Gascoyne at 25 Atlas Terrace Kirkwhite Street East Meadows Nottingham. It is probable that William lodged with the family at some point which would explain his inclusion on St Saviour's memorial.
