Brickwall Sarah (Read) Taylor and William Taylor

I've hit a brickwall researching Sarah (Read) Taylor (Read-37910) and her Husband William Taylor(Taylor-43905), parents of my Great Grandfather George Taylor. I have their names from family members but no other real data and I have found none in all of my research. I've listed their birth dates both as before 1875 simply because George was born in 1890. Does anyone recognize these names or have any information that might help.

The Wiki-id for Sarah is Read-3791, not 37910. Here is her profile: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Read-3791

            Angela, Can you take a look and see if this 1881 baptism for a Richard Taylor could be the correct family: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F2PB-9GS

            If it is then it gives you more clues to work with as it gives their full names as William Thomas Taylor and Sarah Jane Read.
