I can't find a baptism for William senior or the marriage of his parents James & Elizabeth.
I haven't been able to find baptisms for any children with parents James and Elizabeth.

I have found a possible marriage

James Lovely/Elizabeth Archer 2 August 1803 Barking, Suffolk.

The Censuses give Elizabeth born c1782 and there is a baptism for an Elizabeth Archer 18 February 1781 in Naughton ( about 4 miles from marriage place of Barking) with parents William and Sarah.
Thanks emeltee.

I've not seen Archer as a middle name so far. Chapman appears in a few.
