Last one for now I have a Mrs Mary Bullock married in 1729 to William Chapman but do not know what her maiden name was or when she was born but she was possibly born again in Somerset, England

The original register shows that both were of the parish and were married by licence, so I would look to see if Somerset Record Office have the marriage licence allegation & bond, as that may give you additional information such as age and father's name.

Thank you Michelle but unfortunately i can not view it at the moment might have to sign up to ancestry for christmas
The fact that they were recorded as Mr. William Chapman and Mrs Mary Bullock suggests that they were possibly wealthy land owners and therefore it would be worth looking for Chapman and Bullock wills around that time-frame. Again, the Somerset Record Office may hold local wills or additional information if they were a well known family in the area.
Thank you Michelle
I am unable to view trees on ancestry at the moment and wonder if someone might be able to have a look at this tree for me please
