Son of William Wood, the mast maker.
William Wood, Snr., MP, was buried at Wapping on 11 Nov. 1678.
Nothing further is known of the Wood family, although his son, William Jr., continued to receive substantial payments from the naval treasurer during 1679.
Perhaps William Jr. didn't know as much about shipbuilding as his father after all -- or perhaps he died.
