Re; the Starmond or Wormond...
A slow process but maps.nls.uk website has historical maps and if you have an area that is a focus for the family and a year range you're after e.g. between 1850 and 1890, you can find detailed maps of the area and peruse the map (very slow process) to find places. sometimes they are spelled slightly differently to the documents you may have. i have managed to find a few tiny locations in Scotland by this method.
All the best!

Possibly William's birthplace is Crowfield?  near to Crowfield are Little Stonham and Stonham Aspal. Might these be 'Starmond' in 1871?  https://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/SFK/Crowfield

Not far away from these two places is Stowupland. Could this be pronounced Starmond ??

In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth
