Thanks emeltee.

A baptism and no birth reg also for a son William.

Susan is a bit odd in 1841.

There are actually two baptisms for James Meek in Burnham Sutton & Burnham Ulph . They can be found on FreeReg. One is in 1839 and one is 1840.

The reason you cannot find a birth ref for William is because he was registered as John William Meel Sep 1843 Docking Union 13 49 mmn Tuck
