William Evans, bachelor of this parish, married Esther Gabbaday (b. 16 Feb 1775), of the same parish, spinster, daughter of John Gabbdey and Elizabeth Travally, at the church of St George in the EastCannon Street Road, Tower Hamlets, on 8 Apr 1792. Witnesses to their marriage were Edward Penfold, the bride's step-father, and Esther Travally, who was her aunt.

William and Esther Evans appear to have at least six children:

  1. Esther Elizabeth Evans b. 20 Jan 1793, bap. 20 Feb 1793 (31 days old), daughter of William, Boat Builder and Esther, at St Anne's Limehouse
  2. Ann Evans b. Thursday, 1 Dec 1796, bap. 30 Dec 1796 (at 29 days old), daughter of William, Boat Builder and Esther at St Dunstan's, Stepney
  3. Edward Evans b. 6 Feb 1801, bap. 2 Apr 1806 at St Dunstan's, Stepney, son of William, Boatbuilder of Poplar, and Esther.
  4. George Evans b. 3 Jun 1803, bap. 2 Apr 1806 at St Dunstan's, Stepney, son of William, Boatbuilder of Poplar, and Esther.
  5. Charles James Evans b. 1 Oct 1805, bap. 2 Apr 1806 at St Dunstan's, Stepney, son of William, Boatbuilder of Poplar, and Esther.
  6. Eliza Jane Evans b. 11 Dec 1807, bap. 21 Jan 1816 at All Saints Church, Poplar, daughter of William, Boatbuilder of Poplar, and Esther.
Esther Evans died, at 42, and was buried on 3 Apr 1817 at All Saints, Poplar.

Although William Evans was 'of the parish' in 1792, there are no clues to where he was born. As Esther was only 17 at the time of the marriage, I'd assume William was at least a little bit older, but again, there are no clues to his age. Without those clues, it's not possible to find the relevant death.
