Further to the enquiry on William Rayfield, I've had a look at my records.
There was a William Rayfield (Christened William Raphael Rayfield) born 20th November 1831 in Stockbury Kent.
It's possible that this is the one you are looking for.
His mother and Father were Christiana Woodhead and John Rayfield, who married on 19/01/1824 in Stockbury.
They had nine children in all between 1823 and 1840.
At this time, there were Raphels and Rayfields using the churches in Stockbury and Detling (about two miles away). Depending on who was speaking into the record , depended on whether they called themselves Raphel or Rayfield.
I hope this is of use to you.
There is further detail at
