Are you suggesting that Joseph was the son of William and Ann Collins?
If so, is this him:
Name Joseph Collins
Christening Date 28 Jan 1798
Christening Place St James, Westminster, Middlesex, England
Father's Name William Collins
Mother's Name Ann

Good Afternoon
William and Anne had the following children in Enfield
Chrysostomus 3.6.1770,Charles 27.10.1771-1812,Joseph 14.2.1773,Mary 26.3.1775-6.10.1778,Susanna 1776-12.10.1778,David 7.2.1779-8.12.1856,Mary 29.4.1781,and Thomas 10.11.1782.
William is buried at Enfield 1.3.1795 and Anne widow of William labourer of Maidenbridge at Enfield 14.3.1824 .Born 1743.

Land tax records give William renting in Enfield 1782-1790 at or near Parsonage Lane.
It looks like there is a possible brother Samuel who marries Mary Johnson at Enfield 30.120.1767.

I would go for the marriage at Estree 1.5.1768 William Collins and Ann Mead.
This might possibly suggest a baptism at St Albans 17.4.1743 to a David and Elizabeth Collins with siblings Ann age 3,David age 4 and James age 3 baptised at the same time.David 17.4.1743 and Samuel 22.2.1746.
There don't seem to be any Collins family at Elstree.
However there are other William Collins baptised in the area and other Collins in Enfield.

You should look at a PCC Will of Thomas Mead of Edmonton who names his brother in law William and nephew Joseph Collins as executors .It was proven in 1810 but made in 1792 before William's death.It includes more details of the Mead family.
Nothings certain but it looks good for that marriage at Elstree.
