    NB. Explaination of Family and Census Information. The military records show his first name as a mixture of Christopher and William, however the Army Register of Soldiers Effects record suggests that the name Chrisopher was an alias and show that his mothers name was Catherine. Other records suggest that he lived at Fife Street, Nuneaton. These three bits of information are the basis from which the above Family and Census information in the name of William was formed. He is not to be confused with Private 8593 William Newcombe and his birth records which can be found on Ancestry.co.uk.
