Hi awgen,

Many thanks for your help. I 'm not 100% sure this is the right one or not. I found a marriage on the LDS for :

Lawrence Holcombe b abt 1818 St Decumans
Married 1842 at St Decumans to
Harriett Webber b abt 1821 St Decumans.
Parents Robert Webber and Amy Caddick

Also found the same marriage in the Somerset Marriage Index for Holcombe
(compiled by Dr Campbell).

Lawrence's wifes name should have been Harriett, but after a lot of searching,
I found that Harriett's name was actually Harriett Charlotte.

Her mother's name should have been Amy not Elizabeth. I think it is the correct one, but can't explain the Elizabeth.

I wonder what would have been recorded on the 1841 Census for Robert Webber - Head? Would you be able to help with that at all.

Would be very grateful for your comments.

Regards,
Hazel
