Sophie Westlake had what I thought was an illegitimate daughter Jane Westlake - though I have recorded her as Jane Brimble Westlake with a birth (or christening) date of 19 Jan 1834. The father I understand to be Henry Brimble. I assumed they never married, but years ago I was sent information as set out

Husbands Name
Henry BRIMBLE (AFN:90BC-2T) Pedigree
Born Abt 1808 Place -
Wife Sophia Westlake (AFN:90BD-00 Pedigree
Born Abt 1810 (I know for a fact she was born 18 June 1809 at Puriton, S/Set)
Children
Jane Westlake (AFN-90BB-XJ) Pedigree
Born 1834 Place Puriton S/Set

I just want to know two things
This information was submitted by someone - I know not who - could any other information be found as to this marriage - since obviously there was a marriage?
Proof that Jane was christened Jane Brimble Westlake

She married under the Westlake name in 1841 to Henry Puddy. Dont know if that helps you any as you may already know this.

Marriages Jun 1841
WESTLAKE Sophia Bridgwater 10 559
PUDDY Henry Bridgwater 10 559

I dont think the 1841 census would do you any good neither, to see what name she used then cause she would have married Puddy by then. Tho it would be interesting to see what surname Jane has in the 1841 census.

"The 1841 census was taken on the night of Sunday 6th June 1841"

I cant find a marriage for Sophia and Henry Brimble, unless im missing something but i dont think they married. Jane is under the name Westlake so i would assume her surname would have been Brimble if her parents were infact married.

Name: Sophia Puddy
Event: Census
Event Date: 1841
Gender: Female
Age: 30
Birthplace: Somerset
Record Type: Household
Registration District: Bridgwater Union
Sub-district: Huntspill
Civil Parish: Puriton
County: Somersetshire

Name: Jane Westlake
Event: Census
Event Date: 1841
Gender: Female
Age: 7
Birthplace: Somerset
Record Type: Household
Registration District: Bridgwater Union
Sub-district: Huntspill
Civil Parish: Puriton
County: Somersetshire

I cant find a baptism for Jane but maybe someone who has more access than i do to records might be able to find something.

The other baptism record i found had mother's occupation as servant where as this one has it noted as father's occupation
Its the only thing i can find on Jane that has the name Brimble in it. And it was transcribed.
Her marriage index doesnt state Brimble neither.

Yes, she re-married again to Henry Puddy (I have all those details) or should I say married (for the first time) since I am still trying to establish whether she did in fact MARY Henry Brimble.

Apparently the 1841 census showed

1841 Census Sophia - Jane and Matilda Linhares (aged 15)
I don't have a copy of it unfortunately, I am presuming she used the name Westlake (that name was handed down through the family, even my mothers middle name is Westlake) - Matilda Linhares (Matilda Linham, correct spelling, is her niece).

I have this information

WESTLAKE

A John Westlake, 2 Irving House Park Row, Bristol, Avon England is interested in the Westlake family. (Sept 1984)

I just wanted to find out if Henry Brimble actually married Sophie, or just admitted to being the father. I'd dearly love to get in touch with this John Westlake from Avon :(

I also wanted to know perhaps if this information was submitted to LDS, because of the codes in my previous message eg Jane Westlake (AFN-90BB-XJ) Pedigree etc

Ohhhhhh you've just answered me before I had a chance to get this to you lol

Will send this and read your reply.

Gibbo thanks for your efforts.

Do you think that information I had (with Pedigree) - might have come from Ancestry, and if so, could someone just check it - and maybe find who is researching?

Other than that, thanks once again.
