Hi again. I have relooked at your names and find this is what I have going backwards -Arthur Porter b 1874 Sth Australia, ( siblings are Lavinia, Thomas, Mary, Wilfred, Herbert, Jasper, Muriel)Is this the same Arthur of yours?

Arthurs father is Jasper Porter mother Elizabeth Nankivell from Cornwall, m 27 Nov 1871; Jaspers parents are Jasper b 1812 married to Mary Parker, Moorlinch, died 31 Mar 1896; Jaspers father is John Porter bap 1773 m. Edith Turner b. 1774 Moorlinch; in 25 Apr 1798.

Now this could be the connection after all that you are looking for. My ancestor could be your Jaspers [1812] brother. My email address is if you would like to contact me and I can send you some trees and information that might help.
I have not been able to get back further than John 1773 but there just might be a connection to a Joseph Porter of Edington just on the other side of the Poldens [abt1745] who married Hannah someone whose children were named Joseph, Sarah, Thomas, John, Jasper and possibly a Hannah. I only have descendants of Joseph and John Porter. John Porter of Moorlinch leased farm land at Edington as well as Catcott.
I have been in touch with descendants of John Porter 1803 whose relation was a brother to my gt grandfather Henry Porter. Some of this Josephs descandants ended up in Australia too. Joseph and Henry had two other sidblings Thomas and Edith Mitchell Porter who I think died in infancy. I think Thomas married eliza Reeves frn Ashcott. They didn't seem to have any children.
I shall hunt out the tree that John of Taunton sent me.
