Are there any Cleavers in Woodstock in the 1700's?

I have an interesting conundrum in my tree. There is a William Cleaver (b:1759) who seems to either have been born in Banbury, or possibly Woodstock.

Has anyone come across him in Woodstock, as a birth record or a baptism? Or anything else?

Having checked the OFHS's Oxfordshire Marriage Index (1538-1837) for any CLEAVERs with a connection to Woodstock, I found the following:

(a) a William CLEAVER ("of Woodstock") marrying in Banbury in 1779, and

(b) an Elizabeth CLEAVER and Anne CLEAVER marrying in Woodstock in 1686 and 1789 respectively.

If you need any further information on these marriages, let me know.

If you have any more information on William CLEAVER marrying in Banbury in 1779, that would be very helpful.

If I have my facts correct, he should be marrying an Ann Hussey.

William is the puzzler at the moment as his parents lived and died in Tetbury Glos, William is described as being 'Of Woodstock' and also has a birthplace in Banbury.
