Had a look on the Sussex Marriage Index at Withyham and the most likely for William Avis parents are
William Avis and Mary Quinall on 10 November 1770 at Withyham both of this parish, by banns and witnesses - Thos Quinall and Jn Hall.

No sign of a baptism for Philadelphia or a possible marriage on the SMI for parents though  :-\  Perhaps she came from across the border??

Hi Poppyann

You could always try the Sussex Family History Group baptism look up service http://www.sfhg.org.uk/baptisms.html they do have records for Withyham in the right time span and may well be able to help.

Best wishes

Hi Locket2
It would be helpful to know what evidence you have to prove that the parents are William and Mary rather than the other couple who also had a William in 1774.   Have you looked at the original church register?
