Marriage record in Winslow Parish Register records "Blacksmith" but with "Shoemaker" scratched out.

Christr BIGG of Winslow, Bucks, B Smith, paid a tax of £4 on Thursday 22 January 1767 for the completion of the 7 years' apprenticeship of Wm JACKMAN (Arts 2) on 1 December 1766

(By inference, the apprenticeship started December 1759. Assuming William to be 11 years at this age, this would put his birth date at ca 1748)

In the wills of Christopher BIGG (1780) and Mary BIGG (1780): William was nephew of Christopher and Mary BIGG and was cited as a blacksmith. William was beneficiary of Christopher's will and beneficiary and executor of Mary's. In Mary's will he inherited land in Swanbourne.
