Thank you Liz I checked every original record where they had them and there was so many different versions of the name I suppose a vicar often wrote it how it sounded in the broad Devonshire accent If William was in the militia he wouldn't be a carpenter as well would he. Although it said his occupation was house carpenter in 1851.also I looked again at the bapt of the 2 Williams born to William and Jenny in St Bureaux and they both died . Back to the drawing board. Thanks again. Sue
