There is a couple John Lawrence and Sarah West who married on 14th Feb 1780 at Old Basing, and I have found baptisms for the following children:
William 1781
Thomas 1783
George 1785 - married Hannah Frewen in 1820 and moved to Michelmersh, where they had several children including a Robert and a Jane (my Robert also had a daughter Jane, oh, and a son George).
John 1787
Sarah 1790
Henry 1797.

There is also an Elizabeth Lawrence who married a James Englefield 30 Jun 1821, and they had daughters named Sarah and Jane. I haven't found a baptism for Elizabeth yet, but two of the witnesses at George Lawrence's wedding to Hannah Frewen were Elizabeth Lawrence and James Englefield.

Henry Lawrence is at Froyle, Hampshire, on the 1841 census, married but his wife isn't with him. He is a widower in 1851. I haven't found his marriage yet to see who the witnesses were.

There is a big gap between Sarah's baptism and Henry's baptism into which Robert and Elizabeth would fit nicely, but I need to find something to prove it!

I have found Henry's marriage (20 Aug 1829 Seale, Surrey, to Charlotte Hart) but the witnesses were Ann Hart and Stephen Winslade, no Lawrences.
