In 1851 he was at Row 100 which starts at HO107/794/04/11/13 in the 1841 census. He does not seem to be there in 1841.

6. William Fisk

The Norfolk Pubs site (http://www.norfolkpubs.co.uk/) has a William Fisk as the licensee of the King William IV at 20A Quay Road, Brush Quay, Gorleston between 1865 and 1869 and again in 1875.

Harrod & Co.'s Royal County Directory of Norfolk and Lowestoft, 1877 has:
Fisk William, "William the Fourth", Pier road, Gorleston

White's History, Gazetteer and Directory of Norfolk, 1883 has:
Fisk William, beerhouse, 69 Nelson Road, Great Yarmouth.

I believe that he is entered incorrectly as the father at the marriage of his grandson Henry Albert on 4 Nov 1886.

He committed suicide by hanging aged 86 on 6th March 1891 at No 16 Row 51, Great Yarmouth. His occupation was Retired Publican. The inquest was held on 10 March 1891.

~Free BMD (Jan 2007)
Look for his second marriage between 1861 and 1871.

~NBI (2nd Edition)

~FISKE FAMILY PAPERS
The index has a memorial for him (a gravestone?).

~1871
There is Maria Hewett a niece who is probably a niece of Elizabeth rather than him:

Elizabeth Fuller

The witnesses at her wedding to William were William Fuller and Mary Ann Fuller. These may be a brother and sister (or sister in law).

~Burial 1869 Q2 Gt Yarmouth, Nfk, v4b p1

~ IGI
Her parents are from the IGI. But the same couple from that batch were having children in Earsdon By North Shields, Northumberland, England, including another Elizabeth christened on the same date. This may be a mistranscription.
