Child 2: John William SAVILLE

Name: John William SAVILLE
Sex: Male
Spouse: Jane BIRCH (1849-1882)
Birth 1846 Hunslet or Seacroft - see notes
I have been unable to find a compatible entry in the St Catherine's index for this birth. I searched the 3 years 1845/6/7 and the only one was - 1845 Sept qtr Savill, John William, Brentford district, vol III page 25. But our John William Saville was born in Seacroft according to his baptismand the 1901 census (Hunslet according to the 1851 census), so it looks as though his birth was not registered.
Baptism 29 Mar 1846 (age 0) Seacroft2,3
Occupation "1868 to 1916." Leather currier; Leeds
Residence 1868 (age 21-22) Hunslet, Leeds
Census 1881 (age 34-35) Leeds
1881 Census:
Saville, 7 Melville Terrace, Leeds
John W Head 35 Leather Currier b. Seacroft
Jane Wife 31 b. Leeds
Martha A dau 11 Scholar b. Leeds
Sam son 9 Scholar b. Leeds
Annie dau 6 Scholar b. Leeds
Richard Watson son 4 b. Leeds
Ethel dau 2 b. Leeds

In the 1881 census John W was given as aged 35 born Seacroft, but the only one to fit here is the John Wm in the 1851 census in Hunslet aged 5 born Hunslet with his younger sister having been born in Seacroft.
Burial btw 1913 and 1916 Armley Hill Top Church Yard, Leeds
Margaret Wigglesworth (now Sherbourne) says that she found that a William Saville aged 70 years died on 21st Feb 1913 and is buried in a paupers grave number B133 at Armley Cemetery, this being the only Saville buried there. This could be our William, yet it does not accord with the death certificate. More importantly, there is no such death recorded in Leeds in the St Catherines Index in the period Jan - Jun 1913. Therefore the date of 21st Feb 1913 is clearly wrong.
Death 19 May 1916 (age 69-70) Township Infirmary, Leeds
Death Certificate states: "of 15 Elsworth Street, a Currier".
Auntie Lillian says that he was in Armley Workhouse.
