On marriage certificate father's name is listed as John Hill, General Labourer. Appears in 1901 census with wife Mary Ann Hill nee Rose as boarder in Nottingham. In 1911 census family has moved to Leicester, where they remained. William was listed as an Insurance Agent on his marriage certificate, and  a Sewing machine Agent in 1901 and 1911 census, and on son Walter's marriage certificate is listed as a Commercial Agent.  I have been told by family that William dabbled in making homemade remedies in his spare time.

Okay looking at the 1881 census there are three William Hill's two born to a Joseph and one living with Grand parents (this is the one that is closest in date and the one that should be him.

1881 census East Retford

HILL, William Head Married M 55 1826 Farm Bailiff
Rampton, Nottinghamshire HILL, William
EAST RETFORD, Nottinghamshire
RG11 piece 3304 folio 107, Mary Wife Married F 56 1825
Tuxford, Nottinghamshire HILL, William
EAST RETFORD, Nottinghamshire
RG11 piece 3304 folio 107 HILL, William Grand Son Single M 8 1873 Scholar
Tuxford, Nottinghamshire

Interesting that by 1891 he has become there son! this happens, one of mine is doing just the same thing.

1891 East Retford

HILL, William Head Married M 66 1825 Farmer
Rampton, Nottinghamshire HILL, William
EAST RETFORD, Nottinghamshire
RG12 piece 2640 folio 24 HILL, Mary Wife Married F 66 1825
Ollerton, Nottinghamshire HILL, William
EAST RETFORD, Nottinghamshire
RG12 piece 2640 folio HILL, William Son Single M 18 1873 Son
Tuxford, Nottinghamshire

Before that we can see them living at Tuxford, where your William says he is born 1881 / 1891

They have a daughter Lizzie who will be a good age for having a bastard child in 1873

1871 living at Tuxford

HILL, William Head M 46 1825 Nottinghamshire HILL, William
EAST RETFORD, Nottinghamshire
RG10 piece 3456 folio 23 page 13 HILL, Mary Wife F 45 1826 Nottinghamshire HILL, William
EAST RETFORD, Nottinghamshire
RG10 piece 3456 folio 23 page HILL, Lizzie Daughter F 16 1855 Nottinghamshire HILL, William
EAST RETFORD, Nottinghamshire
RG10 piece 3456 folio 23 HAWKSLEY, Florence K F 0 1871 Nottinghamshire

Alternatively they have other sons and one may be a John Hill.

As far as I can see Tuxford is not available on any of the main free or paid websites :-(

I would suggest you get to see a copy of the Tuxford Parish register (try Nottinghamshire FHS link

http://www.nottsfhs.org.uk/images/stories/projects/parishregisterlist.pdf

and see what they tell you and order a copy of this birth certificate

Births Mar 1873

Hill William E. Retford 7b 17
