This baptism looks likely, but doesn't explain why his father was recorded as "William" when he married.

Easton in Gordano, 11 November 1849

James George Powell, son of James (labourer) and Sarah, of Pill.

(The couple had another son, Samuel, baptised the same day).

Burial, Easton in Gordano

30 May 1852: James Powell, 42, of Pill.

This may explain why James George didn't know his father's name - he had died when his son was very young.

Sarah had not remarried by 1871, when she remained in the parish as a widow: RG10/2517/72/28.
