I have looked at the '51 census as someone suggested - it seems quite a possibility.  But when I checked the 1861 census there was someone of the same name working as a carrier for someone in Cardingtion, but it does have his birth town as Cardington.

Address Chatwall, Cardington in the home of John Lowe Mylton
William Williams Unm. 30 Farm servant born Dayhouse, Shropshire. ( Mr Google suggests that there is a Dayhouse near Leebotwood but also that the name was commonly used in Shropshire).

Many thanks - he was a 'sawyer' and had only been in Christchurch for 3 days so quite possible he could have lived out in Oxford where saw mills were big at that time and his sister emigrated to some 20 years later.
