    • From the PR entry (image on FMP, viewed 10 Jun 2019)
      Shows George Vogwell married Elizabeth Hannaford, both otp, married by Banns, both made their mark as also did witness William Vogwell. The other witness was Nathaniel Tremill, who was witness to most marriages in Widecombe at this time and almost certainly Parish Clerk. (William was probably George's brother though could have been his father. Siblings or other young people were more often witnesses than parents)

    Married 27 Sep 1816  St. Mary’s Church, Bathwick, Somerset, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • I was guessing the marriage would have taken place about 1816, i.e. not too long before the first child was born (IF I know of all the children)

      And then I found this marriage - a good match on date, and given the rarity of surname Vogwill seems too much to be co-incidence. But  in Somerset -why did they marry in Bathwick? Census shows Jane to have been born Kingsteignton so I don't think it indicates the bride being a different Jane Bailey.

      Now (29 July 2017) the Somerset baptism index is on FMP, there is not a single (F/V)ogw(e/i)ll baptism in it, in any part of Somerset at any date; clearly Henry was from elsewhere.
