Interesting !

Information I have is that  William Henry Backler, was born 19th February 1844 then baptised in the parish of St. Philip, Birmingham on 25th March 1844.  His father was an Officer of Police living at Inge Street, Birmingham.

William Henry died at the age of 35 on 30th December 1879 in the police station at Ladywood Road, Birmingham. No record found as yet of his partner (the mother of William b 1859) or of a marriage.   At the time, William Henry and his father William both lived in Ladywood Road, Birmingham, probably at the same address, which was the police station.
The only link that I have between William b1959 and William Henry b1844 is the marriage certificate of William to Ann Maria Smith in 1888 at Walsall. Both William b1859 and his father William Henry b1844 are shown as bakers on the marriage certificate.

William Henry born 1844, son of the  policeman, was a Post Office Clerk. He probably never married as he died intestate and  administration was granted to his father Next of Kin.

If the marriage cert is your source of information then I cannot understand why you would think that this William Henry born 1844 would be the father of the William born sometime in the 1850s.  He is not a baker, not living anywhere near Bristol and is not old enough.
