Baptised at St Stephen, Sneinton, Radford, Nottinghamshire on 11 September 1836, son of George Johnson Turner (died 1838) and his wife Betsey née Clark, who married at Nottingham on 1 December 1825. He married at St Stephen's Sneinton on 20 March 1864, Jane Mary Robinson and in 1871 a 32 year old 'animal portrait painter' living at Upper Ebdon Street, Sneinton with his 30 year old wife Jane Mary and a 4 year old son and 2 year old daughter. By 1881, a 50 year old painter living at 15 Turner Street, Pym Street, Nottingham with a 36 year old wife Adela, born Chesterfield, and three children Harry 17, George 14 and Emily 13, all born at Sneinton. A self-taught artist of animals, particularly cattle, in both oil and watercolour and spent some time in Newmarket, Suffolk painting horses. He exhibited at the British Institution and Suffolk Street and locally in Nottingham 1858-1862. In 1901 a 40[sic] year old 'painter of pictures' living at 117 Blue Bell Hill, Nottingham with a 50 year old wife Adela. He died at Radford, Nottinghamshire in 1904, aged 65 and Adela died in 1906, aged 68. I have found no marriage for William and Adela and in each census their ages vary by at least five years but the birth date is correct at 1836.
