Sorry ... could you please clarify. Are you looking for information on William TOWERTON, born c1835 (father of Henry James) or another William TOWERTON, born c1853 (as in the first paragraph of your posting)?

There is a William Towerton born in Wycombe, Buckingham in 1853, would this be your Wm? And in various census' just under Towerton there are two other Towertons. (High) Wycombe is just over the 0xford/Bucks borders.

Cheers
Margaret

there is a William Towerton married to a Maria Trendell
10 Jul 1845 All Souls,St Marylebone,London,England

but that would not tie in with his birth date.

This William was born (c) 1817 to a John Towerton

There is a marriage on Ancestry a copy of the marriage register, if this is the right person

to confuse issue there is a William Towerton 04 Sep 1853 ELLESBOROUGH,BUCKINGHAM,ENGLAND to a Daniel and Ann

Can i ask where have you got the info for William 1853 is it on a census?

Hi Marilyn ...

Do you have Ellen's 1884 birth certificate, as this will confirm the names of her parents?

The only Henry TOWERTON (this one with the middle name of Charles) that I can find on the GRO indexes married an Ellen Sarah SWAIN in 1886 in Bradfield RD (covers Berkshire, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire).

There is an Eliza Ellen ATTRYDE on the indexes, but she married back in 1847, and not to a TOWERTON!

Once you have confirmed Ellen's parents' names, then you can search for their marriage, and this certificate will in turn confirm the names/occupations of their respective parents.
