Huxtables North Devon: Swimbridge

Surnames: Huxtable, Facey, Clay
I am trying to de-convolute the Huxtable family from North Devon, especially Swimbridge, and work out who may have been the father and Grandfather of Mary Ann Huxtable (1846-1923), West Hill, Ottery St Mary, who married Michael Clay, Ottery St Mary (Apr 1871). According to the census transcripts her father John was either born in Stonebridge (1851 census) or Trowbridge (1861 census) but I believe these to be transcripts errors from the poorly written originals. That being so the only Baptism record I can find is Swimbridge 1820, which gives his father as William Huxtable and mother Mary. But there are so many Williams born around the same time (1780-1800) in North Devon and at least 3 of them marry a Mary (1800-1810) so which one is the correct Grand father? A number of member trees gives the wife of William as Mary Facey (1810)and I have included this in mine but i am struggling to see how this can be assumed to be correct.

Has anyone any thoughts or records to help.
