Corner of the former East Ferry Road and Glengall Road, both now renamed Glengall Grove.

William Hockley, born William Crow, son of Eliza Crow, Single Woman, married Mary Ann Day (bap. 21 Jul 1844 at All Saints, Writtle, Chelmsford), daughter of Thomas Day and Rose Knight, in 1865 at St MatthiasBethnal Green, London. The marriage is the first time William had used the surname Hockley. At 19 in 1861, he was still listed as William Crow, but it was finding Mary Ann looking after his brother Daniel's son, that led me to find him. 

William and Mary Ann had twelve children:

In 1881, William Hockley (37) Labourer and M A Hockley (36) were at 55, Glengall Road, Poplar with Tama (sic) Hockley (14), Alice Hockley (11), Laura Hockley (10), Charles Hockley (8), Hannah Hockley (6) and Edith Hockley (4).

In 1891, at 75, Glengall Road, Poplar, London, we find Mary Ann Hockley (49) with Laura Hockley (19) Domestic servant; Charles John Hockley (18) Dock labourer; Daniel Hockley (10), Arthur Hockley (8), William Hockley (5), Christopher Hockley (2) Nephew - son of William's younger brother, Daniel - and John Parker (21) Dock labourer, Boarder. William is not listed in the household and [so far] I have no explanation for his absence.

In 1901, at 77, Glengall Road, Poplar, were William Hockley (59) General labourer, Mary A Hockley (58), Hannah E Hockley (26) Housemaid, Daniel Hockley (19) General labourer and William Hockley (14).

In 1911, still at 77 Glengall Road, Cubitt Town, Poplar, were William Hockley (68) Boro council pensioner - now we know who he had been labouring for - and Mary Ann Hockley (66). All of the kids had flown the nest.

William and Mary Ann Hockley were still in Poplar in 1921

William Hockley died, aged 82, in 1925 M Quarter in Poplar.

Mary Ann Hockley died in 1926 S Quarter in Poplar, also aged 82.
