William Lolley Immigrates to America

There is no proof that this is the William Lolley who settled in Ontario, Wayne, New York, but he appears to be the most likely candidate from the name, age, and date of arrival.

Although he sailed from Liverpool rather than Hull, and he is listed as 46 rather 51, the timing he seems to be right. His arrival would have been two years before that of his wife and children giving him the opporunity to purchase a farm and ready it for their arrival.
