His own son William died tragically in 1902 but his wife Emily was born 1864 so this is probably not worth pursuing.
Notes for further research:
His son Arthur Wellesley Martin and daughter Amelia Margaret Martin both call him William Edward Martin. Electrical Engineer on their respective marriage certificates.
Information supplied by Amelia's daughter, from a letter written by her aunt (Ciss), suggests that William E. Martin worked at St. Johns Wood Power Station. She also thinks that he may have lived for a time opposite the Oval Cricket ground and was an umpire. (Lords Cricket ground is at St. Johns Wood).
His son Arthur Martin had a National Health Insurance card for 1918,1919,1920 addressed to 88 Kilburn Park Road. It is noted that Kilburn Park Road is ¾ mile from Lords Cricket Ground.
1881 Census shows 2 Disney Street, Borough, London. was a Lodging House, run by Amy Martin - Lodging House Deputy, born 1838 in Derby. Also there was her daughter, Amy, born 1870 Southwark) As his mother Hannah Martin was born in Derby it is safe to assume that Hannah is now known as Amy but this is the first and only record to date of the daughter, and the father George Martin is not there.
Lodger: Charles W. Martin born 1841 in India is one of the lodgers.
