WILLIAM HUXTABLE
William Huxtable, born at Bideford in 1821, migrated to Australia (Port Philip) aboard the "Berkshire" leaving Liverpool on 3 October 1848. He was then aged 26 years and upon arrival in Australia he was employed by Oliphant ROBINSON of Kubbeabbot, Port Philip. This is now believed to be the Port Arlington area. At the time of his arrival in Australia William Huxtable was a farm servant, who could read and wrire and was of Eposcopal religion. He was employed for a period of 3 years at a wage of 20 Pounds and rations.

It is quite evident that he worked well for, only approximately thiry months after his arrival he married on 7 January 1851 Catherine Francis MOYLE, born Cornwall, England in 1826. She had migrated to Australia on 11 November 1848 aboard the "Nelson" and she was employed as a house servant. She was a Bible Christian and could read and write. Both William and Catherine were apparently well known during their life at Port Philip as they are referred to many times in records of the Port Arlington Methodist Church. Catherine's parents were Jessie MOYLE, believed to have been a Master Mariner, and Hannah MOYLE nee HART. They were married in The Manse, at Geelong, Victoria.

William and Catherine had a family of thirteen children the first being born on 1 December 1850 and the last on 17 Oct 1870. These dates are from the Huxtable family Bible. The last born, William Henry Huxtable 17 Oct 1870 was the writer's grandfather.

After working in the Port Arlington area for a number of years William and Catherine amassed a large amount of farming property in that area as maps of early settling days show that they had approximately one hundred and fifty acres of land in their name. They also had several building allotments in the town proper during this time. They built a family home in High Street, Port Arlington and until just a few years ago that house was still standing, but unfortunately the local shire knew of no descendants and the house was demolished and smashed by vandals. On a visit to Port Arlington in 1981, the writer located this land and actually found the foundations and outline of the old house. I managed to to obtain a photograph of the original water tank (inground) believed to have been built by William and was in excellent condition. Arrangements were being made with the local Historical Society and the present owners of the land in an endeavour to preserve the tank for historical purposes, the tank of course having been made out of mud bricks.

It is not known what way of life the children took but research is being made in that direction. William died on 27 June 1881 and was buried at Port Arlington and a grave and large headstone was erecetd by his beloved wife to his memory. That grave still stands and is in excellent condition, work having been done to restore portions that needed renovation. After his death it seems that Catherine sold most of the land owned by William and she then had another home built on the Esplanade not far from the old mill. That house still stands and although there have been a few alterations done over the years by the succeeding owners, this place is in very good condition. Photographs are held by the writer. Catherine died at Port Arlington on 3 October 1896 and is also buried in the same grave.

Little more is known of the family in the early days but perhaps we may be able to "fill in the missing gaps".

Subj: Huxtable - Standfield Research

Hi Peter,

I came across my name in your Huxtable/Moyle page through the ANZWERS search engine. I am married to Joy Standfield who is a descendant of William Huxtable and Catherine Moyle.

I have attached a file which gives the details of our particular branch so you can add them into what you already have.

Note also that these Standfields spell their name with a "D". The "D" is left out in many indexes etc. but all of the line that I know spell their name as Standfield. They are believed to be descendants of the Standfields who were the Tolpuddle martyrs although I have not found the precise connection yet.

Good luck with your research, I will keep dropping into your site.

Cheers

Hi Peter,

Yes I moved from Boronia 4 years ago. I have not yet progressed any further with my Huxtable research. I am stuck until I locate the record of birth/baptism of my William c.1821. The available parish records for Burrington, (given as his place of birth in the shipping records 1848) cease in 1813. The census records for 1841 for Burrington note a William & Johanna with their daughter Elizabeth aged 8 yrs. but no William Jnr. Any ideas. ?

I have visited your home page and extracted info. Well done.!!

Michael
