     William Runciman died in Apr 1803 Shoe Lane (30), St Bride's Fleet St, LND, ENG.11 He was buried on 28 Apr 1803 St Andrew, Holborn, MDX, ENG, entry shows William RUNCIMAN as "from St Bride's". St Andrew's appears to be just by Holborn Circus, with Shoe Lane one of the streets running behind it (from Fleet St) The Congregational Church being currently numbered 49-51 Shoe Lane - which may mean that William and family lived directly opposite.11,12
As of Feb 2012, the missing piece of the Michigan jigsaw, has finally been found.13

Although the thrice married William is not found with an age to fully verify he is the William born 1756 to John and Elizabeth (Familton) Runciman, we do have a 1757 baptism for his first wife Elizabeth Campbell Millington, and the assumption is that he is of an age, which fits very nicely.14,15,10,16,8,17,5,18,19,13
