He was one of 6 children born to James Robins and Sarah Heath. He also had a half brother from Sarah's first marriage. William married Mary Elizabeth Ann Hickman at St Dunstans in London on the 18 August 1884. They had six children. He ran the butchers shop in Aylburton until his death in 1937, then my grandmother Charlotte Clark (Robins) and my Grandfather Albert took over the business until my gran passed away in 1966. The family then gave up the business".
