Four months after his first wife Catherine had died, William, a widower with 8 children to care for, married Elizabeth Bean (nee Bradley) the widow of William Bean - herself the mother of 8 children. The Beans, Bradleys and Fishburns had been neighbours for many years. Although there were no children from this marriage, Elizabeth would have played an important role in the lives of the younger Fishburn children. She could read and write in a colony of mainly illiterates. The younger children of William learned to sign their names yet the older ones marked their 'X' when they signed official documents.
