I have transcribed both the Moss and Pratley families in Ascott Under Wychwood. I have searched for your William Moss born aprox 1812 and have not found any likely candidates. I was also unable to locate a marriage for William and Mary Ann.

I suddenly remembered that I had the Oxfordshire Marriage Index.

This is what I have found:

William Moss married Mary Ann Parmee in Witney Oxfordshire Sept 10, 1832.

Hope this helps,

Sharon

I think this William Moss was born in 1811 and his wife was Mary Ann Parmee from Witney, the daughter of James Parmee and Ann Baylis. This one was a shoemaker.
William's parents were William Moss from Ascott under Wychwood and Susannah Scaresbrook from Curbridge. The Moss family can be traced fairly easily back to around 1640:
This William's parents were also William (1737, AuW) and Sarah Lea. His father was also William (1690)! This William was the son of John Moss (1660) and Anne Brookes. John's father was another John Moss (c. 1640).
The William who married Mary Ann died in 1883 in Witney, where they had lived in Corn Street, and left £338.15/6 in probate. They seem to have had 10 children rather than 8: William, John, James, Mary Ann, Thomas, Benjamin, Joseph, George, Susan and Emma.
Kind regards from a descendant via William and Mary's son James.
