Of the five children, only Emily and Llewelyn
(the eldest child and later rector of Christ Church, Marylebone) survived to mature adulthood. In January 1858 Jane
died young of tuberculosis, and William
accompanied her consumptive sister Jane
to Torquay in Devon, where she acted as nurse and companion until Jane died there on 17 January 1858.
