I haven’t obtained the birth certificate of William Henry Caddy, however, we know from the FreeBMD that he was born in the 3rd quarter of 1863 to Thomas Edward Caddy and Ellen Ryan in Cheshire, UK. We were able to identify him and his birth place from census records where he first appeared along with his family in 1871 Census of 10 Cathcart Street, Nottingham.

William married Emmeline Brewin in September of 1889 at All Saints Church, Nottingham.
We then find him in the census of 1891 at 6 Studley Terrace, Potternewton, Leeds. Being a commercial traveller in engineering, could he be promoting the services of Caddy & Co of Nottingham?
As noted here, William and Emmeline now have a daughter, aged 5 months, born in Yorkshire, Leeds.

William is next found back in Nottingham and from the 1901 census is living at 85 Losiac Road with his wife, daughter and a son of 8 years. However, NOTE: daughter Dorothy is now said to have been born in Radford, Nottingham. What were they thinking? However, on further investigation through the FreeBMD website, Dorothy Emmeline Caddy is born in the December quarter of 1890, in Nottingham and Thomas Brewin Caddy is born in the March quarter of 1893.
