looking for william thomas of wotton under edge. gloucestershire. uk. born about 1792 - about 1860's

I'm looking for my 2x g.Gr/f. William Thomas who, according to the censuses, was born in Wotton under Edge in Gloucestershire.uk in about 1792. He was married to Hannah (not sure of her maiden name)
I think she was born, also at W-u-E, in about 1798/99.

Their children, as far as I have found were Mary abt 1826, Llewellin abt 1827, Alfred abt 1829, Frederick, (my G.G/f), abt 1832,
Eliza abt 1836, Millicent abt 1840, all these were born in W-uE.
The final child, Francis, was born in Bristol in about 1848.

Llewellin went to Bristol and started up a building company.
Alfred went up to London and did the same thing there.
My G.G/f Frederick stayed in Gloucestershire and was a Labourer.
I think Eliza married a man from Bristol and became a Greengrocers's wife.
Millicent stayed single, made her way to London, and was a maid/housekeeper/cook in various large influential houses there.
Not really sure what happened to Francis, I've only found him in the 1851 c. Hannah died in 1858, any help would be most welcome
