John Vaux of the parish married Joan Lavor, spinster of the parish, by license on 2 August 1785 in South Petherton parish church by H. Henman, with witnesses John Lavor and John Robins[1,4-5]. John Vaux was age 38 when he married Joan Lavor, who was age 23.
John and Joan (Lavor) Vaux had nine children between 1786 and 1799, all christened in the South Petherton church. At some point, this family was nonconformist.
