Yes indeed according to the transcriptions you pointed out, some of the
JUTSUM's I was looking for died in West Buckland, Somerset. There's also

there surely must have been more children, but where were they born?

You could try the Somerset Genuki for West Buckland.
There are transcriptions of the Baptisms, Marriages & Burials including
some JUTSAMs. There is a Ralph JUTSAM, farmer, recorded as buried on 13 Jun
1801. Is he your Ralph but buried in West Buckland, Somerset?
