Horsey connections to Wincanton Somerset, UK

I am looking for anyone connected to the Horsey families of Wincanton, Somerset, UK.
My mothers' ancestors came from here and I am able to trace back to James HORSEY (1801 - 1864) and his wife Elizabeth MICHELL (1806 - 1865) they were married in Wincanton around 1825 and had 5 sons and 5 daughters from 1826 to 1844. The Census tells us they lived at 122 North St Wincanton where James worked as a cooper making wine barrels until the 1850's when they moved a few miles to Verrington Farm to try dairy farming.
Records exist for the marriages of three of the daughters who were married in Wincanton; Louisa HORSEY & John KIDDLE 1855, Ellen HORSEY & Joseph ROGERS 1860, Emily HORSEY & Henry MEATYARD 1871. If Emma or Selina HORSEY married is not known.
John HORSEY married Thursa ? and lived in London.
Charles HORSEY married Arabella TUCKER in 1852 and dairy farmed at Sunny Hill Farm, near Wincanton.
Eli HORSEY married Cecilia TROAKES in 1858 and moved to Dorset.
Henry HORSEY married Emma Jane GODFREY in 1861 and migrated to Australia around 1880 with 2 sons Tom and Birt.
Albert HORSEY married Annie ? and moved to Kent.
