What information in particular were you after?

His marriage at Stow says his residence at the time was Great Barrington and father - William (both labourers).

In the 1861 [RG9/1789 pg6] and 1851 [HO107/1970 pg4] census at Great Barrington they are easy to find, however Walter's place of birth is Burford, Oxfordshire.

I assume this is his baptism at Burford - 29 Jan 1843. Parents William (labourer) and Charlotte. (Brother Thomas baptised 19 April 1840 at Burford, parents William and Charlotte.)

Modified to add census references.
