    • From Cornwall OPC database
      Shows Alfred James VOGWILL, son of Henry and Betsey, residence Railway, father a miner. The baptism is shown as being in Linkinhorne - but it was a large parish.

      The GENUKI page for Linkinhorne Parish shows that there were 2 Primitive Methodist Chapels in the parish - one at Minions [Cheesewring Railway], the other at Henwood. Since all references to the family in Linkinhorne show that they were living at Cheesewring Railway it might seem probable that the baptism was at the Cheesewring Railway Chapel - except that it wasn't built until 1864. There may have been a congregation meeting there before the chapel was built, so it could have been wherever they met, or else was probably in Henwood, less than 2 miles north of Cheesewring Railway.

    Married
    • Assuming Henry became a widower for a second time before marrying Betsey, then they must have married between the 1851 and the 1861 censuses.
      Not only can no such marriage be found but Marian Warriner's notes record that Bessie had 4 children who were adopted by Henry: Thomas, James, John and William. However, the sons of these names appearing in the census returns were clearly registered as Vogwills when born, not as Baileys, and for the last 2 at least the births were after the censuses show that Henry and Betsey were living together as a married couple.
      But maybe Henry and Betsey had not married and so legally the sons were not his?
      Formal adoption did not exist at this time but Henry may have informally have adopted his own sons by registering them with himself shown as father.
      (The four named as being adopted were children 1,2,6 and 7 of the 8 Henry and Betsey appear to have had together; the other 4 all died in infancy)

      The daughter, Kathryn, of one of those said to be adopted, William, said  her father used to say he was one of thirteen sons by two wives - it is hard to imagine he would have said this is he was adopted and not a biological son of Henry.

      Since no death has been found for Henry's 2nd wife, Jane nee Wedlake, perhaps he did not marry Betsey because he was already married? [1]
