You do not appear to have checked your information via census entries before posting?    He wasn't born in Guernsey.  1851 shows Devon & 1861 shows England.  Both censuses are available on Family Search

Where did you get Elizabeth's maiden name of French from?   

If you look up the son's birth on freebmd then check GRO online - mmn was not French - it was Pinney  - see 1842 marriage on freebmd

Buying a copy of the marriage cert will give you his fathers name - or check freereg in case it has been transcribed

Baptism entry for Ellen Mary Chick shows Elizabeth as French  - but where does it say William was b Guernsey?  Where did you get his birthyear from?

Elizabeth has remarried to William Fletcher by 1871 - also has son William Chick b 1864 - mmn French

There are 2 William Chicks in Guernsey - both born 1819/20 and both with wives called Elizabeth.  Both were born England

In 1871 - Elizabeth (now Fletcher) is 30 b England
In 1861 - Elizabeth Chick is b 1831 England
In 1851 - Elizabeth Chick is b 1820 Devon

The William Chick in Guernsey was, as stated in 1851, a Cordwainer (shoemaker) born Thorncombe, Devon, (as already mentioned) with wife Elizabeth bc.1820 with son John 7 - William Chick, son of Henry, married Elizabeth Pinney (dau.of George) 19/5/1842 Hawkchurch, Devon. 

The William there in 1861 was a Porter - either this was another William (wrong occupation plus this Elizabeth was 10 years younger than the Elizabeth in 1851) or his first wife Elizabeth died between 1851-1861 and he subsequently remarried to Elizabeth French by 1861 (and changed his occupation).

The son John Chick was bp.20/8/1843 Chard, Somerset - can't find him in 1861 but in 1871 he is in Southampton - a Boot Closer - with a wife Mary and dau. Mary who were both born in Guernsey so presumably he married in Guernsey.  Still in Southampton 1881 with 3 more children whose birth entries on GRO states mmn was Dale.
