Hi Peter,

If Esther Herbert died in 1848 aged 52, then she must have been born c.1796.

I have found a Hester Hawkins baptised in 1796 at Newland, daughter of Frederick and Esther Hawkins (née Franklin) of Coleford who were married at Newland in 1795. They went on to have five further children - William baptised 1798, Richard 1799, Jane 1803, Elizabeth 1804 and John 1807. The youngest two were baptised at Coleford Chapel - I do not know if this is the same as the Coleford Baptist Church where Moses Teague’s children were baptised between 1819-1832.

Esther/Hester junior had two illegitimate children - Amelia baptised 1817 and Richard baptised 1825. Amelia married John Yemm in 1836, and they were living next door to Esther and William Herbert in 1841.

All quite interesting, but still it does not establish a link with Moses Teague.

I am having less success finding out anything about Martha Cowmeadow before she married. It looks likely that the parish records for Backwell for the period around Martha Clayton’s birth have been lost.
