My 5th great grandparents William Sellick/Selleck and his wife Alice had children baptised at Stogumber, Somerset, England in 1744, 1747, 1749, 1752, 1755, 1757, 1759 and 1762.
I have not found a candidate marriage for them in any surrounding parishes and there appears to be a large gap in the Stogumber Register with no marriage records from 1742 through to 1749. There are no Bishop's Transcripts for this period either - see http://www.wsom.org.uk/Registers/StogMar17171754.htm.
William had been baptised at Monksilver on 2 Oct 1718 but his parents (Robert and Joan) were described as being of Stogumber.
My theory is that Alice may have come from Stogumber and been born around 1721, so I have looked for any babies named Alice baptised there around that time.
There are none but I did find one interesting 1720 baptism which I cannot yet rule out as being her.

it seems to say:
July ye 24th a girl ye livith with Stephen Duddbridge called Elizabeth
Irrespective of whether there is any chance that this baby is my ancestor, I have not come across the wording used before.
What might it mean? My best guess is that a man named Stephen Duddbridge presented a girl and asked for her to be baptised as Elizabeth. I am assuming the girl was a baby but perhaps she was older.
As a postscript to this question, using Ancestry.com, I may have found an Allice baptised at Stogumber who appears to be a candidate for my 5th great grandmother in the Somerset, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, 1531-1812:
Name: Allice Bicknell Event Type: Baptism Baptism Date: 10 Oct 1718 Baptism Place: Stogumber, Somerset, England Father: Thomas Bicknell Mother: Julian Bicknell
