      Marriage record for 1823 in St Helier Jersey has a Joseph BEATON marrying a Mary KINGWILL: "Joseph BEATON of West Camel in county of Somerset, and Mary KINGWILL of Stoke Under Ham same county were married on the 12th day of October 1823". There is no other Joseph BEATON of around the right age brought up in any search for Jersey records. So I believe this to be the right Joseph BEATON.

      Ancestry has records for three possible Mary KINGWILL's. All born about the right time in either Martock, Odcombe or Shepton Beauchamp. Each of these villages surround Stoke Under Ham (or Stoke Sub Hamdon as it is known).
      Mary KINGWILL born to Rebecca and George KINGWILL and baptised 1791 in Martock

      Mary KINGWILL born to Ann KINGWELL and baptised June 25th 1797 in Odcombe "was baptised aged 3 years"

      Mary KINGWILL born to Mary and Paul KINGWILL and baptised (along with her sister Martha) 1796 in Shepton Beauchamp
      This Mary had two older siblings at this time - Elizabeth 1791 and Thomas 1793, both baptised in Martock.

      Judging by the age (46) given for her on the 1841 census we should expect her to have been born 1795-6 which would suggest it more likely she was either of the latter two. Though working out it would depend how long after their birth these girls were baptised. The record states that Mary from Odcombe was baptised aged 3 years, which puts her birth around between June-1793 to June-1794. There is also a record of a Mary KINGWILL (no age given) burial in 1801 at Odcombe.
      So at present the third Mary KINGWILL would seem the more likely candidate. Shepton Beauchamp is a little further away from Stoke Sub Ham than the other two Mary's (only 1km or so). But the fact she has two siblings baptised in Martock, somewhat discounts this minor discrepancy.

      An aside, a Martha KINGWILL (spinster) of Shepton Beauchamp, married William BAKER of South Petherton (a village in between Shepton Beauchamp and Stoke Sub Hamdon) 31st July 1825. This is the only Martha KINGWILL (with KINGWILL being maiden name) found anywhere on Ancestry. The witnesses were John MARKS and Jacob Stower?. Interesting because the 1871 census has a William BAKER (74) (born 1797; North Perrot, Somerset) living with his brother-in-law Israel MARKS (83). Along with Elizabeth MARKS (20) and Israel Willliam WHITE (17), living at West Coker, Somerset (4km East of South Petherton). This Israel MARKS married a Sarah BAKER in West Coker in 1816.

      1841 census indicates an "E" in the column for "Where born" which suggests "England".

      1861 census (RG 9; Piece: 1021; Folio: 16; Page: 26; GSU roll: 542738) has a Mary BEETON bc1796 living with an Elizabeth GRAY bc1800 in Great Wilbraham, Cambs. (Both women are recroded as born there too). Both are widows and on poor relief. Interesting because John G BEATON has a nephew "Robert GRAY" b Dorset, living with him in 1881 census. Possibly just coincidence. Or is John's mother still alive and now living here with a similar aged (albeit distant) relative? Perhaps she was from Cambs originally?
      1851 census has Mary BEETON married to a Thomas BEETON so perhaps not..
