Information from Merry:
The original copies of many Fife 1841 census records were lost in transit to Edinburgh and are therefore unavailable. The parishes are: Abdie, Auchtermuchty, Balmerino, Ceres, Collessie, Creich, Cults, Cupar, Dairsie, Dunbog, Kinghorn, Kinglassie, Kirkcaldy and Leslie.

Having searched the OPRs for Ceres, Cults and Leslie, there is one match for death of William Williamson:

6 July 1837
'Mort cloth money for Mrs Anderson, Willm Williamson's daughter.'
