Right ... this gives me lots to think about.

So, the Towell/Corser marriage looks good for the real Charlotte Towell. It looks as though they went to Australia in the end.

The father of my Charlotte Towell, who may be the illegitimate daughter of Ann Towell and Thomas Henton could be Henry, who was in and out of the asylum, or possibly another Henry entirely who died two years before the patient.  Alternatively, she could have been asked her father's name and simply said 'Henry', omitting to say she was giving the details of her stepfather Henry Camp.

My Charlotte Towell wrote a beautiful copperplate hand.  Where would she have learnt that?

I think this is the most likely;
Charlotte Towell, the illegitimate daughter of Ann Towell and Thomas Henton;
And she could have been asked her father's name and simply said 'Henry', omitting to say she was giving the details of her stepfather Henry Camp.

 I think I have found the answer, as Jomot suggested:-

Charlotte Hinton
Baptism date: 20 Apr 1827
Place: Oakham
Father Thomas Hinton
Mother: Ann Towell

 Looking at the possibilities of Mary Ann Towell, who witnessed the marriage of Charlotte, the only person who appears to fit was the wife of William Towell, a Felmonger of Oakham. She only appears as Mary A on the 1871 census, otherwise just Mary.

 William would seem to be the son of Thomas and Mary, the same parents as Ann in 1804.

Thomas Henton, son of Thomas and Ann was baptised at Melton Mowbray on 6th February 1807.

A Thomas Henton of Melton Mowbray married Ann Tyler of Pickwell on 21st December, 1826, at Pickwell.

Ann Tyler, daughter of Robert and Ann, was baptised at Pickwell on 4th February 1801.

Good find with the baptism David. 

For reference, it was at Bar Gates Independent Meeting House, Oakham and her date of birth was 27 Feb 1827.  Charlotte is recorded as 'Charlotte Hinton daughter of Thomas Hinton and Ann Towell his wife'.

Credit should really be to you, Jomot. It was your lead that helped me to find it.

There is a reference to the grave of Ann Henton in Knossington, which is four miles from Oakham, although her age is incorrect. It mentions Thomas but it may just mean that he was her husband.

http://www.gravestonephotos.com/search/findfamily.php?name=Henton&scrwidth=2400

Leicester Journal 23 September 1831:
 The same day(Monday the 19th), aged 30, deeply lamented by all who knew her, Ann, the wife of Mr. Thomas Henton, of Knossington, in this county.

Leicester Journal 19 December 1828:
To be disposed of,...
All the stock, Fixtures, and Good-will in the Trade of Mr. Thomas Henton, Linen and Woolen Draper, Hatter, Hosier, &c. Market Place, Melton Mowbray.

I can find no further reference to Thomas.
