Q.Is this a Datura and if so is it as toxic as I have read?
This plant was bought in seed form from a reputable company who gave no indication of its toxicity. I thought I was buying a Brugmansia

This is definitely a datura. Every plant in this family are highly toxic. Consuming as little as a single leaf can cause death in many varieties. All parts, including the blooms are poisonous. As long as there are no children or animals around, then the plant poses no risk on its own.
If there is any risk of poisoning, then it will be best to keep this out of reach, or out of the area completely.
Many thanks for prompt response. Should I wear gloves when handling it?
