William Richard Harry was born on 12th July 1859 at Plymouth in Devon, son of Jane Harry, formerly Drake, and her husband William Richard Harry, a shipwright. Young William appears in the 1861 census living at 12 Claremont Street in Plymouth with his parents and siblings. He was the fifth of nine children, but the fourth of six who lived to adulthood, and the eldest boy. The 1871 and 1881 censuses also find William living with his parents and siblings in the Claremont Street / Claremont Place area of Plymouth. By 1881 he was working as a plasterer.

William's father died in 1884, and his mother died in 1894.

In 1898, aged about 39, William married a widow named Jane Ann Quick, formerly Smith, who had a young daughter named Lilian. William and Jane went on to have another two children together: a son also named William Richard Harry in 1899 then a daughter named Louisa Kate (after William's sister) in 1901. The 1901 census, taken just before Louisa was born, finds William, Jane, Lilian and young William living in two rooms at 12 Chedworth Street. William was still working as a plasterer. Lilian had adopted her stepfather's name, appearing as Lilian Harry, not Lilian Quick. Ten years later the 1911 census similarly finds the family living in two rooms at 21 Nelson Street.

William died in 1916, aged 56.
