Looking at the Somerset transcripts on Find my Past for Corton Denham, there is the baptism 15 July 1810 for Richard Fox the son of James and Jane then it would appear this Richard died and was buried 13 January 1811 as the son of James and Jane Fox.  

The next baptism on 23 February 1812 is for another son called Richard for parents James and Jane Fox.

Is it correct that this Richard married Betty Wise at Mells Somerset on 27 September 1840?  If so then his father is shown as James Fox, labourer on the marriage certificate.

It is not unheard of for a child to be named the same as a deceased sibling.
My 3rd great grandfather had a younger brother, Laurence Gill born 28 Nov 1759 who died young. The next son who was born two years later on 15 Nov 1761 was also named Laurence.
thanks so much ,having looked at what you said, then yes ,that does sound correct. richard baptised 15/7/1810, and buried 13/1/1811,  then along came his sibling richard baptised 23/2/1812, and married betty wise,   many thanks
