Sorry for the delay, I've only just found this forum.
William Rendle and his wife Jane (ne้ Taylor) were my great-great-parents. As you say, he was born in Woodleigh (christened 19 September 1806, parents John RANDALL and his wife Mary). William and Jane were married 30 December 1829 in Bigbury (Jane was "of this parish" but William was not). They apparently had eight surviving children, of whom my great-grandfather George Rendle was the sixth; but the Blackawton census records seem pretty inconsistent and it isn't easy to be sure.
But it looks as though their children were :
John born 1830-1831
William born 1830-1832
Mary Jane born 1833-1836
Thomas born 1841-1844
Gilbert born 1838
George born 6 November 1840
James born 1847-1850
Catherine ("Kitty") born 1850
William died in 1879, and Jane in 1887.
I haven't yet managed to find William's parents John and Mary, but I have found a marriage between John Rendle and Mary Gay, 3 August 1798, in Ringmore, which of course is next door to Bigbury; could be them !
Hope this helps.
