It was fun wasn't it but we still have a few loose ends so if anyone else would care to join in we would love to find:
1 Which George Carter married Ann WEAVER in Paulton in 1836? His 1851 census in Bedwellty suggests he was born in 1814 in Paulton
2 Who were Christian Barwell Coles parents? Again her 1851 census suggests she was born in Paulton in 1792?
Annoyingly there is a couple George and Christian COLES, married as George COALS and Christian HOLER,who have 4 children in Mells 1781-1794 then3 in Elm 1796 -1800 now they don't baptise a Christian but were they Christian Barwell COLES parents?
3 where was Rachel WRINTMORE from? Not quite Paulton but nearby
And this is the BIGGY
4 Who were Angel COLLINS Parents and where was she from? She was said to be of Walcot when she married William BULL of Paulton in 1788

Hope some one can help shine a light on these for us
The HUNT GOES ON

Hi, I came across this post from 2007 when looking up the Paulton cholera memorial. You mentioned the names Bull, Amos and Carter. I am descended from the Paulton Amos family - George Amos and his wife Anne (nee Batten) from Paulton moved with their two sons Stephen and George to Beaufort in South Wales in the early 1840s. This seems to have been part of a wave of migration over several years from one coalfield to another. Stephen married Elizabeth Rawlings, also born in Paulton but raised in Beaufort. I think she may have had Bull  connections. In the late 1870s Stephen and his family moved to Manchester, and he was drowned in a mining accident in 1878. Some of his family eventually moved back to Beaufort, but his widow and youngest daughters stayed in Manchester. The youngest daughter became my paternal grandmother.

Well welcome to Rootschat and the family David. George and Ann Perry BATTEN are my husbands 3x great grand parents. and we have your Stephen and Ann Rawlings and his family on our tree. He died in Bradford Colliery "Inundation of water a level from the new winning being driven into a working of a former underground trial shaft. 2 killed." but you know that.I am assuming you descend from John Williams Roberts and Harriet Louisa Amos.
Back to Stephen's brother George he married Susan BULL in Brynmawr and they moved to County Durham around 1873 these are the next direct line.
If you haven't already found our web site may I suggest yo have a look at it and contact me through the site:

Elizabeth Rawlings was the oldest child of Robert Rawlins and Maria Hew.
By the way I usually find them as RAWLINS not RAWLINGS e.g like this GRO Index entry:    
"AMOS, HARRIET  LOUISA      RAWLINS  "
Maria Hew was daughter of Joseph a carpenter and Betty Hew
Robert Rawlin was son of John and Hannah nee Bull
