And his baptism is also on there, at Blofield - Baptisms, Burials - 1783-1812 - image 16, Howes, William, son of Charles & Elizabeth his wife, (late Roy spr) born Feb 11 1810 and baptised Apr 1 1810. I think that's what it says but it's not very easy to make out.

... and thanks to FreeREG, we know the parish for Eliza Matilda's baptism - Norwich St Clement - so back to the images on FamilySearch and it's baptisms 1813-1830, image 19 born 25 Dec 1820, abode St Clements, father's occupation Glover. The mother's maiden name definitely says Ray, and it could well be Ray on William's baptism; as I said, that one was quite hard to read.
