Moses BARTON is my great-great-great-grandfather. Here is everything I know about him (that hasn't already been said):

1. His surname often changes from BARTON to BANTON. In quite a few newspaper articles and documents he is listed as Moses BANTON.

2.He had at least 10 children that I have found certificates for. They are:
- Robert Flemming BARTON (also known as Robert Fleming BANTON) (1861-1898)
- Alice Susan BARTON (1863-1929)
- Sarah Annie BANTON (1865-1903)
- Maria Marion BANTON (1867-1950)
- Mary Enever BANTON (1869-1900)
- Flora Isabella BANTON (married Isaac RINGROSE - they're my great-great-grandparents) (1872-1931)
- Emily BANTON (1874-1892)
- Charles Hamilton BANTON (1880-1947)
- Vincent William BANTON (1882-1947)
- Clarence Roland BANTON (1885-1967)

3. He was married twice. First to Mary HARRISON in Victoria, Australia in 1854. Second to Sarah TAYLOR in 1861 in Lyttleton, Canterbury, New Zealand.

4. At some point in his life in NZ he delivered the mail by boat to Pigeon Bay.

5. In 1865 he lived in Akaroa, Canterbury, New Zealand.

6. In 1870 he went to prison for "illicit distillation". He was sentenced to 9 months, but I think he only served 6 months of his sentence before being released.

7. He was friends with Sarah TAYLOR's sister Maria's husband, Robert BELGRAVE, who was also charged with illicit distillation but did not serve jail time.

I am open to having emails from Moses' descendants, as part of the appeal of genealogy is finding distant cousins! Feel free to email me if you would like to chat.
