Apparently William was born out of wedlock to Ann GILES and kept her surname.

Note: There was no marriage of John Paling (William’s biological father) and Ann Giles. Ann worked for the noble John Paling. Ann gave son William her maiden name of Giles as she was not married. Elizabeth Giles, Ann Giles’ sister, also had a son, Thomas Giles, while working for Paling. Not being married to Paling, Elizabeth gave Thomas her maiden name of Giles.

William and his family were baptized in 1840 . He and his sons were brick masons by trade. As they were preparing to leave for America in 1854 , a message came to William saying they had to be in Liverpool in 24 hours as the ship would sail. They sent the children on ahead saying they would quickly follow. The ship sailed without them and some others, but a smaller ship soon followed and brought the rest of the saints to the ship. There were some problems upon their arrival but soon they were able to leave for the Valley and arrived in 1856 .
