William Eccles (January 7, 1848 – 1883) was a distant maternal ancestor of Cometan, specifically his 3rd great-grandfather in the Cottam family line. William was born in Preston, Lancashire and in January 1872, married his wife Alice Pilkington, with whom he had a least four children with. One of these children was Mary Eccles, the great great-grandmother of Cometan. By 1881, William was living with his wife Alice in Preston, but in 1883, he passed away (an exact date for his death is unknown). His parents were William Eccles (1819 – 1868) and Elizabeth Taylor (1822 – 1907).
In Cometanic ancestry, William is classified as part of the 5th generation retrograde, categorising him as a distant ancestor of Cometan.
