William Hornet was born on 25th July 1829 at Wheathampstead in Hertfordshire, son of a straw plaiter named Mary Hornet, formerly Swallow, and her husband Joseph Hornet, a labourer. William's father died when he was only three years old. His mother remarried a widower named Francis Warner the year after Joseph's death. The 1841 census finds William living with his mother and stepfather at Coldharbour in Harpenden. By 1851, Francis had died and William was living with his twice-widowed mother and siblings at Upper Top Street in Harpenden. By this time, William was working as an agricultural labourer.
William was married in 1854 to a Mary Thompson. They have yet to be traced after their marriage.
