I am descended from William Thomas Ayres and his 3rd wife Emily Spaul.

William Thomas Ayres, son of William Sear Ayres and Caroline Charles, was born 2 May 1850 at 61 King Street, St. Margaret, Westminster, Middlesex, England. He married (1) 2 November 1873 at St. John the Baptist Church, Hoxton, Shoreditch, Middlesex, England, to Emily Spaul, daughter of Thomas Peter and Mary Ann Spaul, born 1851 and died 7 October 1884. William married (2) 31 January 1885 at St. John's Church, St. John Holloway, Isington, Middlesex, England, to Elizabeth Faith Washer, daughter of James and Elizabeth Washer, born about 1849 and died 1889. William married (3) 6 April 1890 at St. Stephen, Norwich, Norfolk, England, to Minnie Overton, daughter of Alfred and Mary Ann Overton, born 26 August 1860 and died 7 October 1932.

William Thomas Ayres and Emily Spaul had seven children (that I know of), the third one being Elizabeth Caroline Ayres, born 17 January 1880, at Loughton, Epping, Chigwell, Essex, England and died 11 June 1906 at Canton, Norfolk, Massachusetts. She married 2 December 1902, at Canton, Norfolk, Massachusetts, as his first wife, Harry Purvis Walker, son of Alfred Walker and Hannah A. Hall, born 2 August 1878, at Studholm, Kings, New Brunswick, Canada, and died 16 March 1942, at Wollaston, Quincy, Norfolk, Massachusetts. They had three children: Dorothy Ethel Walker, Herbert William Alfred Walker, and Harry Percy Walker.
Herbert William Alfred Walker was born 29 March 1905, at Canton, Norfolk, Massachusetts and died 18 July 1960 at Quincy, Norfolk, Massachusetts. He married 4 August 1928, at 56 Auleon Avenue, Braintree, Norfolk, Massachusetts, to Mary Frances Pratt, daughter of Minot Pratt and Carrie Frances Walsh, born 4 January 1907 and died 31 August 1970. They had 6 children. Their 4th child was Albert Leonard Walker, born 12 March 1936 at Quincy, Norfolk, Massachusetts, and died 28 November 2004 at Pembroke, Plymouth, Massachusetts. He married 25 April 1957, at Christ Episcopal Church, Quincy, Norfolk, Massachusetts, to Gloria Joan Counter, daughter of Robert Richard Counter and Dorothea Blanche Sullivan, born 8 July 1938 at Quincy, Norfolk, Massachusetts. They had 7 children. I'm the 5th child.

I have pictures of William Thomas Ayres and one of his wives, either Emily Spaul or Minnie Overton (I'm not absolutely sure which one). I also have all the birth, marriage, and death certificates of everyone, as well as all the England and U.S. Census records.
Let me know if there is anything that you would like.

Hi Scott,
I too am descended from William and Emily Ayres, but through their daughter Emily Selina Ayres. I would be very interested in any information that you have on them.
