James Dainton's parents are thought to be William and Sarah Dainton. It is however possible that his parents are William and Jane Dainton - the father and mother of this William.

Both James and Charlotte were baptised in the Zion Baptist Church in 1836 by Rev John Warburton.  Their membership numbers are 394 and 395 resp.

We had previously thought that James died in 1851/2 However we have now found him on the 1861, '71 and '81 census' married to Elizabeth. The marriage took place on 20th November 1853 at Trowbridge Parish Church
James Dainton Full Age Widower Weaver Father: William Dainton Weaver
Elizabeth Stokes Full Age Widow Picker Father: James Summers Book Keeper

This confirms that this is the Elizabeth Stokes (nee Summers) who was originally married to Reubin Stokes. (Link to this family)

All baptisms above took place at Trowbridge St. James
