William IV Spon St William IV (1765 - 1837) was the third son of George III. He joined the navy as a midshipman in 1779 and was soon a captain. He frequently disobeyed the orders of his superiors and violated the rules of discipline so he was never allowed to command a ship. Instead, in 1801 he was promoted to the rank of Admiral of the Fleet. This name appears in the Board of Health map of 1851. It is also known as the KING WILLIAM INN and WILLIAM IV.
