Dear Mr Beals
I have completed an hour's search in the parish records of Ashampstead, Yattendon and Bradfield and I found the following:

Henry William    s/o    William and Mary Ann Wallace     bapt. 15 Aug 1869, Bradfield

I also found a census record for the family in 1881 which reads as follows:

Cottages    William Wallace    Head        M                 Male        38     Yattendon, Berks          Ag. Lab

                    Henry Wallace       Son                              Male        12    Bradfield, Berks            Ag. Lab
                    Rose A Wallace      Daur                            Female     8     Yattendon, Berks          Scholar

                    Isabell E Wallace   Daur                            Female     2     Yattendon, Berks
I can supply printouts from films of the original records and I have attached an order form for this purpose.  If you would like to have them, please print and complete the form, adding an authorisation for a credit card payment and send it to us by post.  I am afraid it cannot be completed online as we need an original signature for the copyright declaration.
If you would like me to carry on hunting for John Wallace's generation please let me know.
Yours sincerely
