John Moxham was 37 years old on arrival. His native place was Hosburn, Wiltshire – He was married, wife Sarah and 6 children at Wiltshire. Sarah died in 1870.
John was 5’6” tall, grey eyes, brown hair.
1830: Assigned to Mr. A Dawson
1832: Assigned to Mr. Adam Amos
NB: Founders and Survivors website have John as dying 21/3/1838 at Lake River, however there were other Moxham’s and Maxham’s etc., around at the same time – so this seems to be an error.
10/7/1843: Married Margaret Stevens (Jane 1833) they had 5 children listed, all girls, but could have had up to 7.
John was working as a carrier and he was also a farmer in the 1840’s.
April 1852: COF
27/4/1852: Steerage Passenger – Launceston to Melbourne – first of several trips he made to Melbourne.
