William Metford Metford1

M, #45086, b. 6 September 1857, d. 26 September 1923
     William Metford Metford was born on 6 September 1857 at Taunton, Somerset, England.1 He married Grace Lyon Marsh, daughter of John Marsh and Nancy W. Johnson, on 21 July 1893 at Millington, Morris Co., NJ.1 William Metford Metford died on 26 September 1923 at Toronto, ON, Canada, at age 66.1 He was buried on 29 September 1923 at Park Lawn Cemetery, Toronto, ON, Canada.1
     From an indenture dated 28 Mar 1892, he is described as 'William Metford Badcock of Burnham Industrial Farm Canaan Four Corners in the State of New York in the United States of America, 'Gentleman', so he arrived before that year. During his whole life, he was addressed by his middle name, Metford, as one would use any middle name as Christian name much in vogue at that time. This had a profound influence on his identity as a member of the Metford family. In 1893, he changed his name to William Metford Metford at City Court, Brooklyn, New York, at the request of his uncle, William Ellis Metford.1 From an obituary: W. Metford Metford, for the last eight years an active worker and Bible teacher at the Welcome Mission, King Street west, died yesterday at his home, 56 Quebec avenue. Born in Somerset, England, 66 years ago, Mr. Metford had lived retired in Toronto since 1904. Besides his connection with the Welcome Mission, he was a member of St. John's Road Anglican Church. Mr. Metford is survived by his wife and three children: Ellis, a university student at Philadelphia; Helen and Miriam, of Toronto.1
