William Singleton was born in 1852 at Allington in Lincolnshire, the fourth of ten children of a coachman and groom named Robert Singleton and his wife Eliza Worth Bonser.

William grew up in Allington, but in late 1871 or 1872 his parents moved to Aston on Trent in Derbyshire, where his mother Eliza died in November 1872, aged 46. Whether or not William moved with his parents is unknown - he was living with them at Allington in 1871, but his next sighting is in 1881 in Burgh le Marsh, Lincolnshire.

William settled in Burgh le Marsh, working as a carrier. In 1885 he married Azubah Margaret Hare, with whom he had a son, Harold. Azubah died in 1901, aged 43. William then spent nearly 20 years a widower, and appears in the 1911 census living alone.

In 1921, aged 68, William remarried, this time to Annie Epton, a spinster 28 years his junior. They were married for just over four years before William died, aged 72. He left a will, for which his son Harold acted as executor. William's estate was valued at £658 15s.
