Biography
William Marsh was a bookseller and composer in Canterbury.

On 5 February 1805, he advertised himself as a seller of Thomas Clark's newly-published work A Sett of Psalm and Hymn Tunes, on p1 of the Kentish Chronicle:

'SACRED MUSIC

Just Published, Price 4s. 6d.

A SET of PSALM and HYMN TUNES, with some SELECT PIECES, and an ANTHEM. - The Music in four parts, and figured for the organ, piano forte, &c. Composed by Thomas Clark, of Canterbury.

Also a SEPARATE PIECE, Price 1s.

Sold by William Marsh, bookseller, Palace-street, Canterbury.

N.B. - The Music entirely new, and never before published.'

Marsh's own collection of music, A Set of New Psalm & Hymn Tunes Composed in a Familiar Style, was published for him by James Peck of 47, Lombard St, London, and 'Sold by the Author Palace St. Canterbury'. The preface to this collection is dated 1816, and acknowledges Thomas Clark's assistance.
