William (9) Hogger was born in 1854 to parents William (6) Hogger and his first wife Amelia (nee) Ramplin [Birth Index: Cosford 4a 511, 1854 (March)]. He was christened on September 19th 1854 at Lavenham [PR: Cosford DB].
The 1861 Census finds him at age "7" living with his parents at Brent Eleigh.
His future wife was Eleanor (nee) Mills. She was an apparently illegitimate daughter of Eliza (nee) Mills and was christened on October 15th 1854 at Thorpe Morieux [PR: Cosford DB], although her census records consistently give her birthplace as Cockfield. Records spell her forename variously as Eleanor, Ellenor or Ellen. The 1861 Census finds her living in Cockfield as Eleanor Gooch with her mother who by then had married a man named James Gooch.
Extensive searches in the 1871 Census have failed to locate William (9).
William (9) married Eleanor in 1877 [Marriage Index: Cosford 4a 919, 1877 (Dec)]. The GRO index names her as "Ellen Milles". They married on November 10th 1877 at Brent Eleigh [PR: Cosford DB]. The marriage certificate cites no name for her father. The witnesses were George Hogger - almost certainly William (9)'s brother George (3) - and George (3)'s future wife Ellen Gridley, a niece of William (6)'s second wife Harriet Gridley.
