How would I prove or disprove that Mary (later Davis) and James Stacey were siblings? Both appear to be children of James and Edith Stacey. Mary (and several siblings I haven't added to Wikitree yet) were baptised at Stogursey, Somerset, Mary in 1794. James was baptised at Stockland Bristol in 1798, and does not appear to have any other siblings baptised there. He was married at Stogursey in 1822.
Stockland Brstol is only about 3 miles form Stogursey, and it is possible that either or both actually came from Stolford, which is about the same distance from both, and appears not to have had its own church, but is in teh parish of Stogursey.
James and his family emigrated to South Australia in 1840.
Mary's son Eli Davis emigrated in 1850 and is recorded as going to live "with relatives, near the mines" as he left the ship. He ended up buying land (a few years later) next door to James Stacey (and Eli's widowed mother-in-law eventually married James after his first wife died).
Thank you for any help on things I might not have thought of.
I don't know if I should make two sets of James and Edith parents or just a single set.
PS: James is Stacey-494 and Mary is Stacey-1153
