Thank you yn9man.
I hope you find the following helpful.  I can supply document copies if you need them. Do you have any family photographs please? I do not have any of Charles senior or junior but I do have photos of William and James when they were living in Bridgwater, also some of their families.
On 5 Oct 1803 in Thornford, a village outside Sherborne, Charles "Rex" married his first wife, Ann Moore. This couple lived in Thornford for many years and had four children: Mary, Charles, William and James who were baptised at the Long Street Independent Chapel in Sherborne. 
Mary married a Thornford farmer and cattle dealer named Abel Moore and raised a family in Thornford. Charles married Eliza Donn brought up his family in Yeovil, James married Susannah Symes and raised his family in Bridgwater, William married Marina Martin and had several children in Castle Cary before joining James in Bridgwater. I am descended from William.
When his wife Ann died, Charles Ricks senior (shoemaker), my 3rd great grandfather, moved to Yeovil to live very close to his son Charles junior (leather parer in the glove trade). He did marry Rebecca Connock in St John Baptist in Yeovil on 20 October 1828.  However she was his second wife (that I know of) and not the mother of his son Charles.

Thank you rjknott, I will definitely investigate Hilton next.

Dorset / Lookup request: Charles Ricks born 1767-1771 in Dorset, possibly Spetisbury

Charles "Rex" of Spetisbury first appears at his marriage to Ann Moore in St Mary Magdalene (C of E), Thornford 1803 and made his mark on the register.
Their children were baptised between 1804 and 1810 in the Long Street Independent/Congregationalist Chapel, Sherborne.
As Charles "Ricks" he married his second wife, Rebecca Cannock in St John Baptist (C of E), Yeovil.
His death was registered as Charles "Rix" in Yeovil in 1851 just weeks before the census.
Please can anyone look him up in Spetisbury parish records for me?
Spetisbury apparently had an Independent chapel but I cannot find any trace of its baptism records. Does anyone have any ideas how to go forward please?

Attached is the photograph of John Martin, the son of one of the brothers in the previous "Who is the daddy" post. Help would be appreciated in working out which of the brothers was his father.
