Sarah Puddy, widow of James Puddy remarried in 1829 according to FreeReg, FMP and Som.OPC. The entry shows she and James Pimm married 28 July 1829 at St Christopher, Lympsham, however, this does not appear on the transcribed records for Lympsham on this site. FMP also shows a marriage at Mark on 12 July 1829 but I have taken this to be a banns of marriage entry and not the actual date. Can someone kindly check the fiche to see if the marriage is there and has just been missed out during transcription.

I am trying to find what happened to Maria Puddy after 1841 where she is living with her brother James Puddy a shoemaker and her mother Sarah Pimm, Pym or Pim, stepfather James and several half siblings at Northwick Drove, Mark.
Can anyone help please? I have arrived at a Thomas Banfield bap 25/12/1816 in Dundry, the same day as his brother William, parents George Banfield and Elizabeth (surname unknown as yet). In the birth register they are "Banfold". In census records Thomas is initially Bamfield or Bampfield until 1861 -1901 when it settles as Banfield. I cannot find any record in Dundry for the family prior to this date (although I may have missed them in scanned records faded and damaged). I've had no success in the surrounding parish records I've been able to locate.
I am seeking the baptism record for Florence A Palmer, daughter of Samuel Palmer and Eliza Pascoe, born in WSM in or around 1877/8. Florence is recorded in the 1881 and 1891 censuses as being born in WSM although the family had moved to Middlesex by 1881. I have noticed that the 'westonsupermare-stjohns-baptisms-1859-1887' transcript shows no baptisms between 2nd December 1877 and 23rd January 1878. That seems surprising. Does anyone know if there is perhaps a page missing or illegible at this time, or perhaps an explanation as to why such a gap in a busy church?
I'm researching the Young family who lived in Woodborough around 1840. Edmund Young married Ann Wilkins (family were bakers and millers of Max Mill) and had three children, Georgiana, Mary Jane and John William. By the 1851 census there is no sign of Edmund and Ann, but the two younger children are residing with their grandparents John and Mary Wilkins at Barton Street, Winscombe. Can anyone help with finding where the parents, Edmund and Ann, went? There is a family rumour that Ann died in an accident in 1858.
