Does anyone have any information about Moses Epps who married Elizabeth Clarke in Kent around 1830? I have details of ane child, Emma, born c1833 They travelled to Adelaide aboard the Buckinghamshire in 1839. I'm after any information that can be provided.

IGI gives two christenings for this couple;
Matilda Epps ch 14 Jun 1829 Molash Kent, parents Moses Epps and Elizabeth Batch number 1005364
Emma Epps ch 3 Mar 1833 Waltham Kent, parents Moses Epps and Elizabeth. batch number 1003531
Molash and Waltham are villages about 5 kms apart, SW of Canterbury, towards Ashford.

bearing in mind Moses is less common than John, James or William (you lucky thing!), this burial at Badlesmere, 2 kms or so from Molash (where Matilda was christened) will probably turn out to be one of yours;
from the National burial Index;
Moses Epps, 84, buried 20 Nov 1794 St Leonard, Badlesmere, Kent

Thanks Birdlip for your help. A couple more details filled in.

I couldn't find the marriage, sorry.
I did notice on freebmd though, the death of a Matilda Epps in 1838, which could explain why you only know of Emma travelling with her parents. It's in the correct registration district for Waltham, so it could well be her;
Jun 1838 EPPS Matilda Bridge 5 20
Of course, it could turn out to be a coincidence, but if it IS her, the death certificate may give you some more clues.

I had forgotten about the FreeBDM website, I have just added it to my favourites.
That probably explains why Matilda didn't go to Oz.

I too have some Epps in my family and was given some records by a friend who has Moses Epps c15/9/1804 B Adelaide 11/2/1840
married Elizabeth Clarke 13/5/1828 Throwley

Can I ask her if she can get in touch with you?

it would be great to tidy up that part of my history. I can provide details of the family after Moses demise.
