William Knight was born in Guernsey on 3 March 1854. He joined the service aboard H.M.S. Achilles as a Boy 2nd Class on 16 March 1870, and later drafted to H.M.S. Argus on 27 March 1873 for her 3 year commission as an Ordinary Seaman. Advanced aboard H.M.S. Warrior in September 1877 to Able Seaman prior to his commission in H.M.S.

Transferred to the Coast Guard and served as a Boatman at New Brighton on 24 March 1883; advanced to Commissioned Boatman in May 1887 but two years later died (whilst on the books of H.M.S. Neptune) as a result of an accident when he “fell from aloft” on 9 August 1889.
