Thank you. Betsy (Elizabeth)'s maiden name was Giles, married Charles 1828. Can't find any record of baptism on Ancestry or FindMyPast for Charles. They must have been non-conformist as I can't find baptisms for any of Thomas and Mary's children.

Interestingly, Eliza is also listed as being with her parents in Honiton in 1851.  I also found my own grandmother listed twice on the 1911 census so not unheard of.

'sojourner' - does that not just mean that the person was residing there temporarily?

Yes, but I now realise he was originally from Honiton not Wellington.
