Beavis, Collett, Draper family Berkshire, 1600's

I am searching for info on William Beavis c1671 who was married to Sarah Collett c1673 both from Great Faringdon in Berkshire, they married in December 1694.
I think Williams parents were William and Edith (unknown maiden name) but not entirely sure and I can't find and parental details for Sarah at all.
William and Sarah had at least 2 sons, William and Daniel. Daniel c1704 married Ann Draper c1717 but I can find no info on Ann Drapers parents.
Has anyone got any more info on these families please?
Thank you.

I have the Faringdon transcripts (OFHS) -the registers begin in 1653.

The entry for William and Sarah's marriage has "Brize Norton Oxon" against Sarah's name-however there is not a baptism there for her either !

There is not a baptism for an Ann Draper at Faringdon either

Just to confirm-baptism

A very big THANK YOU to all those that have so kindly replied. I will chase up all of these leads over the weekend.

I am pretty convinced that William Beavis parents were William and Edith not Peter and Ann Whiting.
I think someone has done some research in the past and got confused between these people, I asume that Peter and William were brothers living in the same village and having families at the same time, and using some of the same names for their children, very inconvienient!

Thanks all! :-)
