There is a marriage in 1837 between a William Possnett & Mary Williamson which might be worth keeping in mind

If Mary Oilet was born 1802 she was possibly married before.  The child Mary age 5 in 1841 could be hers from another relationship :-\

That marriage suggests William was of Lowesby and Mary Williamson of this parish looks possibly to be parents consent?

The Posnett family seem to have been in Melton/Leicester/Peterborough. 

Apart from William and family.  William moved around a lot - I think building railways.

Son James was born in Newton.

There is a Susan Newton Oilet b 1804 in Wisbeach, 2 years after Williams wife.  Surely Newton in her name is important?

Maybe Ann's surname  parents - It looks as though she was born in Ireland

It is now clear that William Posnett and Mary Oilet had
Mary 1836
Louisa 1838
James 1839/40

Later William had 2 more sons, born in France
William 1845
Frederick John Louis 1847

Thank you for your help so far, Mary Oilet is firmly on my tree, replacing Mary Ann Gallant (so I need to work out what to do with her).

Amazing to start getting this part of my tree correct.
