Significant find:
Gloucester Journal Saturday 23 October 1847
Obituaries October 15, at Chedworth, Mr. Daniel Townsend, aged 49, brother to Mr. Theyer Towsend, of the same place.

Found His marriage to "Honor Yeates" 29 Dec 1842. Both parties omitted details of their respective Fathers.
Honor was widowed in 1847 and appears in the 51, 61 and 71 census returns for Chedworth. Looks like she ran the local shop until her death in 1877. Buried in Chedworth 16th Oct.
Her daughter Hannah is enumerated in 1871 as "schoolmistress".

Hilcot is a tiny hamlet within the parish of Withington
Daniel appears to have been a tenant of Elwes (big cheese landowner) 1805 at Hilcot
was this a second marriage?

No unfortunately. Certificate indicates he was a bachelor of full age. His marriage to Honor Yeates in 1842 is 4 years after the baptism in May 1838 of  Eliza Townsend Yates. "Illegitimate daughter of Honor Yates" in Withington.

Well they are being awkward are they not. So this confirms the intuition that Daniel and Theyer had Withington roots but does little to solve who their parents were. Damn. I am not very familiar with Withington parish records but that must be the place to look next when lock down allows. Good luck.
