You might remember writing the attached quote back in 2011.
I am beginning to seriously agree with you about Thomas being the man responsible for all the children.
The problem really is that the three children at Gulval are ALL recorded with Elizabeth as the mother.
Yet there is no record of a marriage that would fit and, seemingly, no record of the demise of said Elizabeth.
I still have some work to do on the problem but if we substitute Jane for Elizabeth then it does certainly all begin to make sense.
Given that the baptism at Paul in 1799 for Thomas was a private baptism then the baptism a month later at Gulval could well be the public baptism for the same child.
It was attached to quite a long discussion in the thread "Susanna Glasson" and this part of it seemingly was not related to the original posting.
I have spent some time going over the available data again and I can only conclude that the only anomaly is the use of the mother's name "Elizabeth" at Gulval. I do not know the reason for that but all the other data points to the three Gulval children being siblings of the earlier children of Thomas Glasson and Jane Daniel.
I have now attached Susan and her sister Jennifer to this family.

I have now made similar changes and recorded the two baptisms for Thomas in 1799 at Paul and then Gulval with details of the recording of different mothers.
I also am still at a loss regarding the naming of the mother as Elizabeth for the three Gulval baptisms but, as per previous discussions on this family, there appears to be no other althernative but to accept they are one and the same family. It is also of note that Thomas (and Jane) had two previous shortlived daughters named Jennifer so Jenifer baptized at Gulval in 1802 offers another link. And I had found it curious that if the mother was Elizabeth the only two known daughters were named Jenifer and Susanna. No law against it of course but it certainly did not quite 'fit' as far as I was concerned.
This tidies up the family somewhat but also leaves the door open for further changes should more information be found.
