Re: Mary Foxwell born Croscombe, Somerset
I am not sure that Joe is right about the identity of his ancestress.

I think that Stephen MILLARD married another Mary FOXWELL, baptised 16 Dec 1806 to Benjamin Foxwell and Sarah RYALL (married 15 Jan 1805).
In 1841, Mary MILLARD (nee Foxwell) is living in Shepton Mallet with her children, and with her mother Sarah (nee RYALL) as well as two of her sisters: Grace and Honor.
By 1851, Mary MILLARD (nee Foxwell) is still living in Shepton Mallet with some of her younger children. Her mother Sarah (nee RYALL) aged 77 is living with her younger daughter Grace GEORGE.
It is indeed confusing that there are two separate Mary FOXWELLs from Croscombe, but this is the only one consistent with the 1841 and 1851 Census entries.
