son taking first name of dead father?

Classification: Query
I'm wondering if anyone has come across cases, in England in the latter half of 19th century, of a son taking the first name of his deceased father? For example, a 'William' taking his dead father's name and becoming 'John William' henceforth?
Many thanks for any information.
