a1.We supposed him ill.

a2.We supposed him to be ill.

b1.I had supposed his wife a younger woman.

b2.I had supposed his wife to be a younger woman.

I wonder what are the differences in meaning and what are the correct sentences, and could you please write your English dialect as well if you don't mind? Because I've noticed answers can vary according to the dialect an answerer has.
