    • 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.
