[Samuel Taylor JAMES does not appear to have been baptised in Christian Malford. There is a baptism in St.Anne, Soho, London for a Samuel JAMES, son of William and Mary on 20 September 1790, which has been suggested in several trees as the baptism for Samuel, but with such common names I have no means of knowing whether this is correct.]
