Ken Stokes of course came from Newark, which takes us to   46. Ron Warnke. It does seem a little harsh on the pleasant town of Newark to describe it as an unfortunate anagram, however.

46 - Indeed it refers to Ron rather than Ken

18 & 44 correct, it was William that was nicknamed Ginger because of Astaire's partner, not because of his hair colour
