Further Research
A thriving Catholic community appears to have existed at Twyford and further research is required to understand this and how it might relate to the Primmer family.
In the notes of the parish register transcripts is the following: THE Wells and Smythe families of Brambridge House were staunch Roman Catholics who maintained a Roman Catholic chapel at Brambridge [House], transferred to [a small cottage in] Highbridge (Chapel Cottage) in 1782. The registers of this chapel have been transcribed by Dr R.C. Baigent and printed in Catholic Record Society Publications Vol. XXVII
Wikipedia states that Brambridge is a village in the parish of Colden Common, south of Twyford civil parish. Brambridge House was once a refuge for Roman Catholic priests and the family assisted in the clandestine burials of Catholics in the local churchyard.
Colden Common was formed into a separate ecclesiastical parish in 1843 and formerly belonged to the parishes of Twyford and Owslebury.

William Primmer married Elizabeth Barton, daughter of Robert Barton and Mary Woodage, on 22 February 1753 at Twyford, Hampshire, England, Betty Barton. Both of Twyford.2

William Primmer died in 1784 at Twyford, Hampshire, England.
William Primmer was buried on 10 February 1784 at St Mary's, Twyford, Hampshire, England.4
A draft lease document dated 1787 may identify that William Primmer lived in Colden Common, a village to the south of Twyford but within the parish (it became a separate parish in 1843). The description of the document says: Of a piece of garden adjoining Colden Common, Twyford, containing 2 cottages belonging to the parish, another piece of land containing a cottage (belonging to the parish and occupied by William Primmer deceased), bounded on the south and east by Colden Common, and a piece of land to the north thereof on which a cottage is now built belonging to the parish. The lease document is held at the Hampshire Archives and Local Studies (46M72/E124).

William Primmer married Esther (?) circa 1725 at Hampshire, England.
A marriage for William was not found using the Hampshire Genealogical Index of Marriages or following a physical search of the Twyford parish register.2
There is no evidence for Esther being the name of the wife of William Primmer. It was noted on family trees drawn up many years ago (sources unknown) and although there is a burial for an Esther ("Hester") she is not mentioned as the wife of William. So it must be taken as sheer speculation although it is not a bad guess given that there was an Esther Primmer buried in 1771 who cannot be matched with the list of children baptised to William, and the name is used amongst William's grandchildren. It is left here to assist with future work.
There is an examination of William Primmer in 1743 concerning activities occurring at the `Popish School' at Twyford and weapons said to be hidden there. The transcription of William's information is given below.3,4
Information of William Primmer, 17 March 1743/4 (TNA: SP 36/63/358)
P1.
County of Southampton
The information of William Primmer of Twiford in the county aforesaid Labourer, who being sworn on his oath sayeth
That about a forghtnight & three days since he was at Mr John Betts’s house, who keeps the Popish school at Twiford, & going thro a room adjoin-ning to the Chappel, he saw therein at least forty or fifty short strong pieces, seemingly to him Carabines, all seemingly fresh cleaned & in order & as he thinks at least twenty swords - That there was also a barrel of about five gallons of gunpowder not quite full - & about two gallons of bullets.
That Mr Betts having been at Winchester on the third of March & heard the proclamation, there proclaimed, - said on his return to one Mr Fitzgerald the writing master to the school (in the hearing of this informant) Mr Fitzgerald we must move it - & in a day or two afterwards he this informant went thro the said rooms & the arms & ammunition were then removed & gone, but whither, this deponent knoweth not.
He says that he commonly for this twenty years past, has worked at & about the house & that(?) he has observed that within this last year past, there has been a greater report of Forreigners to Mr Betts house then he ever observed before, - & a greater report in this last half year then the former. - That particularly on the Mundey in the last Assize week, there came two foreign Gentlemen who were as Mr Betts told this inform[ant] Frenchmen - with very ordinary & ragged country mens great coats - but had under them wastcoats & breeches richly laced with Gold - & a watch chain hanging out of their pockets – that at the door they enquired for the aforesaid Mr Betts - & that(?) they afterwards went into the parlour with the sd Mr Betts - & as this Deponent was returning
P2.
thro the room Mr Betts was reading one of four or five sealed letters wich he had seen them pull out of their packets & give Mr Betts - & this deponent heard Mr Betts read these words – That they should make ready every thing with all speed. - The two forreigners were then at dinner; & Mr Betts sitting by and reading his letters. - That within this last quarter of a year three stout young Frenchmen have come to Mr Betts’s school – giving it out, that they came thither to learn English - That one of the Schoolmasters (whose name ye deponent knows not) is a new Master, come within this five weeks from France – This deponent sayth, ?? when the two abovemention’d strangers in ye laced wastcoats were at Mr Betts he left them there when he went home at night & that he found that(?) they were gone when he returned again at six a clock the next morning to Mr Betts.
And this deponent further sayth that(?) he speaking (sometime since the last Assizes) about housing a pile of faggots, & there being then half a score of the boarders by, they all as best as they could speak after one another, say’d no(?) – they kept them to make a bonfire, to broil the protestants on a gridiron.

Background on Twyford School
(abstract & copy taken from the book "History of St Edmund's College, Old Hall" by the Very Reverend Bernard Ward):
The Catholic school was initially at Silkstead, about two miles west of Twyford. It moved to Twyford sometime between 1692-96. About 1726 the Rev. Francis (alias John Walter) Fleetwood became chief master and under his direction the school spent its most prosperous time. About 1732 Father Fleetwood left Twyford which was a great loss to the school and has been assigned as one
of the principal causes of its subsequent decline. succeeded Father Fleetwood as head-master, in 1732, and survived his appointment four years, dying on 6 July 1736. The last chief master was Rev. John P. Betts, who had been at Twyford several years as assistant master.
The Betts family were connected with the locality, where they probably held property, for Dr. Betts was a native of Winchester, and received his education at the college there. He was a staunch Catholic, and it is most likely that he was one of the chief patrons and supporters of the school.
The school closed c1745, The immediate cause of its downfall was the Jacobite Rising of 1745, and the consequent revival of the " No Popery " cry. Their houses were constantly disturbed by legal visitors, under the pretence of searching for arms; their houses were taken away from them; and, above all, their schools and chapels, which in some places had been winked at, were now everywhere shut up. The most celebrated of the Catholic schools that were ruined and dissolved at this period was that of Twyford, near Winchester, the head-master of which was the Rev. Mr. Betts.
After the closing of the school Mr. Betts came to London, and took up his residence in Gray's Inn, where he had the charge of the Clergy Library. He had been a member of the Chapter for many years. Throughout his life he maintained his connection with Winchester, where he was a frequent visitor. He was trustee for St. Peter's House, the seat of the mission, and had the management of its funds, the missionary work being performed by a curate paid by him. His old account book is still preserved at St. Edmund's, and is continued in his own handwriting till within a few months of his death, which occurred on March 28th, 1770.
(abstract & copy taken from the book "Catholic Record Society, Vol XXVII):
Two miles north is Twyford where a Catholic school was established between 1696 and 1745. The school was removed to a house named Segar’s Buildings, formerly belonging to Anthony SEGAR.5
The 1725 Visitation (an official visit to the parish by a church authority such as a bishop) recorded 10 Papist families (about 90 people) in the parish of Twyford. The 1788 Visitation recorded one family with about 20 followers.6,7
