William is of Janet and John's lot that came over to Otago on the Blundell. He was a Clerk of the Magistrate supposedly. Not only that but he and his son James Cleland Hall Somerville had a hand in the J Wilkie Co. Business, which merged in 1922 into Coulls Somerville Wilkie and eventually Whitcoull & Tombs into the now modern Whitcoulls. Bet you didn't know that did you! https://builtindunedin.com/tag/j-wilkie-co/
