k so the other info i have is: also this is just copy and paste from myheritage.com

William Henry MATTHEWS and Mary Ann MATTHEWS (born HOLMAN).

William was born circa 1852, in Battle, Sussex, England.
Mary was born on November 23 1850, in Hellingly, Sussex, England.

now from this how i can i trace back to william's parents..mary's parents etc.

You need their marriage to ascertain the names of their fathers

Have you tracked the family backwards on the census to establish approximately when they married. Census is free to search on familysearch https://www.familysearch.org/search/hr/search

You can also use the GRO index to see when the couple first registered a birth of a child.
