Have you seen/considered these as possible's.
Baptism : Jane Caroline Smith, Plymouth St Andrew 1813. Father James, Occupation Mariner. This seems to match First marriage details.
Have also found a marriage in 1814 of a James Smith to an Elizabeth Purchese (Widow) in Stoke Damerel. James is given as a Boatswain of HMS Warspite.
So possible her real father is Thomas Purchase, but was baptised as Smith, before her Mother actually married James.
Images are all on FMP.
