William Hobson "Quaker Warrior" born 1837, Lurgan

Classification: Query
I am trying to find out the lineage of William Hobson born in Lurgan in 1837 and died in Reigate, Surrey in 1912. The book "A Quaker Warrior: The Life Of William Hobson" along with the memoirs of his nephew, and the memoirs of his son, all mention that his Hobson lineage goes quite away back through Quaker roots to Lawrence Hobson, but i have yet to find dates and names of his forebears. I think his father may be a Benjamin Hobson who married a Fulton, and his grandfather might be a William Hobson who married a McClelland but that is pure guesswork from hints in the book. There are probably links to Hobsons in surrounding Counties such as Tyrone.

William married Elizabeth Charlotte Russell, daughter of the Primitive Methodist minister, Thomas Russell.
Here are some of William Hobson's descendants:-
