There are a few things which do not match info already to hand, but if Williams parents are Humphrey and Susannah I think this could be him.

On family search, Humphrey and Susannah have William 1792 and Samuel 1797 born Sudbury. Parents of the same name have children Mary Ann b 1790 d 1791 and Mary Ann b 1795 in Eye

on Ancestry in 1841 and 1851 there is a Humphrey born 1791 living in Eye, married to Sarah 1790. William is down as from Eye on the 41 and 51 census and is the only one from Suffolk, but in 51 is a Butler.

Is Humphrey William's brother.

Dave beat me to it. I concur with all Dave said but just to add in 1851 he was described as the brother in law of Charles Collett whose wife was Mary, so she would have been William's sister

William born Eye suffolk and the address 10 Aston Place Islington P1501 F503P20
Thanks everyone, more information is always helpful.
Now for something a bit strange, the probate of William was proved on 11th july 1881 which I find strange as he died 5 Nov 1865.
The will was proved by a William Johnson of Enfield, a gentleman!
If he was living with his sister and brother in law in 1861!
I still havent found his daughter Ann Richardson's birth details yet! Still looking!
She died 18 june 1859.
