Thank you Claire , its worth a thought . The first born to the marriage was at Brushford , Somerset  which makes me wonder about somewhere near Taunton ? although it said Devon .

Hi
There is also a locale (possibly a hamlet) called Kings Tamerton in the Parish or Township of St Budeaux.
This is now in Plymouth, just south of the Northward bulge of the A38, but an 1867-96 old map shows it as having been relatively isolated.
Malmesbury- Bishop.
Gloucestershire-Bishop,Hicks,Higgs,Hill,Hooper,Hopkins,Pitcher,Robertson,Stinton,Terret,Woodruff.
Worcestershire-Stinton. 
Devon- Borrough or Burrow.

Thank you , you may well be onto something there . If I am on the right track they married in Stoke Damerel in 1831 so a distinct possibility .
