The Priston baptisms aren't on the IGI, but there's a submitted entry:

Sophia Colborn
Female

Event(s):
Birth: About 1822 Priston, Somerset, England

Christening: 18 APR 1830 Priston, Somerset, England

Parents:
Father: Joseph Colborn
Mother: Rachael

Job and Elizabeth Colborn, with the same parents, were baptised on the same date.

It obviously needs checking out, but as an exact date's given, it may well be reliable.

Thanks again Mary. I am not sure if Job is actually Sophia's brother as he is not with the family on the 1841 census. Rachel came from Matlock but I could not find the marriage.
