'Somerset Years' lists them as from Paulton, about 10 miles SW of Bath. Also names Sarah as Sarah Louise Sanders, suggesting Johannah is William's second wife. In 1854 William Pitson wed Sarah Louise Sanders Hall and she died 1873 #7105 aged 38, dau of William Hall and Lucy Marchant leaving 8 living and 2 dead children, then the last-born twin died 1873 #9900 aged 3 years.
From FamilySearch submitted entries, William Hall born 26 Oct 1800 at Paulton, and Christened 22 Nov 1800 son of Sarah and William Hall at Holy Trinity, Paulton, Somerset, wed 06 Nov 1837 to Johanna Noad at Bath, Somerset, England. Son Thomas Noad Hall was born 19 Oct 1838 at Woolverton, Frome,
The family set up a living at Williams Town, lived in a tent, herded sheep, and gained a reputation for being reliable when in 1849 they bought a boat to carry passengers from Williams Town to Melbourne.
William Hall's grandson William Alfred Hall 1857-1937, recorded early Victorian history.

I thought you might like to know that there is more accurate and reliable information on the births and baptisms of the oldest five children, as well as two that died in infancy, on freereg.org. William Hall and Lucy Marchant's marriage is also there. Doesn't help as to where the "saunders" (in freereg.org came from - it was also used for one of the other two babies. Maybe the maiden name of one of William or Lucy's mothers.

Thankyou

Hello
William Hall arrived Victoria 1840 on “Andromache”. Pioneer of Williamstown and lots written about him. In the detail you are unsure about where the “Saunders” came from in his daughter Sarah Louisa Saunders Hall. Sarah Saunders was William Hall’s maternal grandmother (married 1752 to William Hall, William’s grandfather)
