William Shorter and Ellen Clark marriage was registered in Hartley Witney, Hampshire Oct-Dec 1871 (vol 2C p321).

Looking at the 1871 census it appears he had been married before (to Penelope Sarah Francis in 1870) and she died in Apr-Jun 1871, registered at Reading (vol 2C p257).

I would start with the marriage certificate of William and Ellen which will give their fathers names and occupations and allow you to work back through the generations.

I think you will find that Wiliam's parents were William Shorter (an Agricultural Labourer) and his wife Priscilla (Leggat).
