What was the first name of Mrs R.V. Eley? She would be my great granny.

You have a William Fox born 1766 Billesdon, but then marry him (place and date ambiguous) to Elizabeth Crofts and he dies in 1799. However, a William Fox born 1766 is still in Billesdon in 1841. Although his place of birth is not given, this seems certain to be the son of John and Rebecca Fox. So I think you have this line going up the wrong tree.

You may be right. Family tradition confirms research data back to William Fox (died young) married to Elisabeth Crofts. BMD data for William (1766-1799) fits; Billesdon (birth) and Illston on the Hill (burial) in Leicestershire seem likely, based on family tradition. I found many William Foxes born in the same or nearby villages about the same time. William and Elisabeth were very popular names, and I found many Fox couples in that era with those names.
