Just a suggestion - South Petherton is about 3 miles from Martock:

Charles Goodden
in the Oxfordshire, England, Church of England Marriages and Banns, 1754-1930
Name: Charles Goodden [ bachelor ]
Gender: Male
Marriage or Bann Date: 5 Jun 1815
Marriage Place: Oxford, St Mary Magdalen, Oxfordshire, England
Parish as it Appears: St Mary Magdalen
Spouse: Sophia Ricketts [ spinster, a minor ]

Witnesses were R and Ann Tredwell


If this is the right couple, Sophia would have been c14, and Charles c19 - going by ages given in 1841, which I know are unlikely to be accurate..


In 1851 Charles says he's married, and widowed in 1861 census. Can't see Sophia's death 1841-61.

I think the father's name James on the alternative version of the possible baptism of Charles (posted by Maddie) is a mistranscription.

On the image it could be either James or "Saml". I think Samuel is correct.

I wasn't going to post this death of a Sophia Goodden, because the age wasn't right (too old, I thought), but in view of that 1851 posted by safc, perhaps it's the right death after all:
