Following on from post #2 above, now the Somerset PR's are on Ancestry:

My Thomas got married (for the first time) 5 Oct 1765 at Timberscombe.

Susanna Portman (presumably the one baptised 1745) got married on the 24th Sep 1765 at Timberscombe. Hers is the marriage entry just before Thomas's. Also Mary Portman got married 6 Apr 1763 at Timberscombe. Unfortunately none of them had a Portman as a witness.

I can't find a marriage between a Thomas Portman and an Anne who could be the parents of the Thomas and Mary baptised at Luccombe (very close to Timberscombe). I can't find a death for Anne. I can't find any children of Thomas and Mary baptised between their marriage in 1737 and the baptism of Susanna in 1745.

I am very much tempted to say that Mary and Anne are the same person and that my Thomas (jr) is the one baptised in 1738 at Luccombe. Opinions please?
