I'd start with Sarah Mary Beeny.  It says she was born in 1796 but cites a christening in 1816.

Her marriage needs to be pinned down to get a handle on her husband, because his name is too common.
Interesting .. why would you start there? I would think Charles Phillips and Richard Phillips would be related through their fathers instead since they share the last name.
But first we need to know where to start looking for Charles and Richard.
Will be interesting to see what you are able to uncover with that route
Definitely would benefit from sources.

Lovely write up about Charlotte.
