The names Thomas and Hannah are nowhere to be found in the names of Richard Realf's children, and also his son Edward. Richard does have two children, Joseph and Sarah. It implies to me that Richard was likely brought up by his uncle Joseph and his wife Sarah (Hannah's parents).
I think it is also an important fact that Richard lived in Framfield and Uckfield up to about 1861 when he moved to Buxted. This is telling me that whatever happened to the family after 1808 did not cause Richard (al least) to move away from the area. Maybe Hannah died after the birth of Thomas Realf in 1807 which was the cause of their son Thomas dying 9 months later (if so, it is puzzling why we can't find her burial - but wouldn't be a first). If the parents had moved away after 1808 (which would be one explanation for their absence thereafter) then surely Richard would have gone with them, so I can't see this as being a possibility.
Maybe the parents split up, and Thomas moved away, leaving Hannah to live with her parents and bring up Richard. If this was the case you would think that Richard would have appreciated the effort and named a child after his mother.
My best guess based on this evidence is that Hannah died after the birth of Thomas (but we can't find her burial - not unknown in parish records). Richard was raised by Hannah's parents Joseph and Sarah Morris, and that husband Thomas remained in the area, never remarried and possibly died in Uckfield workhouse on 1 Oct 1858 age 77 years (giving his birth c1781 which sounds right). However, there is a Thomas RELF baptised 27 Mar 1783 in Framfield to John and Dinah Relf which is another real possibility for that death in the workhouse. Another Thomas Relf was baptised 27 Sep 1778 in Heathfield.
I think there is a strong case for saying that Richard was brought up by Hannah's parents.

Rylston is a large detached manor house on Oatlands Drive, Weybridge and is now the Register Office in which there is a room called the Rylston Room. The following information comes from the Register Office website:
The land in which Rylston is situated on was originally royal hunting grounds at the time of Henry VIII. The house itself was built in 1911. It was purchased by Surrey County Council in 1963 and in 1993 became a Register Office. It has undergone some structural changes over the years, but the overall exterior of the house has hardly changed. It is a beautiful detached manor house with a large porch at the entrance. The building retains most of its unique features including leaded light windows with original glass and unusual wrought iron fittings. The ground floor retains original oak panelling and fireplaces. The magnificent oak staircase with stained glass windows sweeps down to French windows leading onto the gardens.
Her estate was probated on 28 April 1926 at London, England, Effects: £88 3s. Probate to William Morris, railway inspector.2
