Many thanks to Jerry Cook and Beverly Packham for contributing details to this page.
I have also "pinched" details from
Ken Homewood's web site - thank you Ken. (Web site no longer
I do not have any known direct link to the above families, nor do I have
any Moon ancestors. I have included this family group page simply
because Frances Moon (1826-?) married Henry Barham
(1822-?). Henry was the brother of my 3x Great Grandfather
Nicholas Barham (1814-1896). I also have Roberts ancestors,
but they were mainly from Cowfold in Sussex, and I would think it
unlikely there was any connection between them and Elizabeth Roberts
born in Warbleton.
