Matilda married Richard Glossop in Cannock Staffordshire England on 9th Feb 1845. They migrated to Australia as Assisted Imigrants leaving Liverpool in July 1854 on the " Indian Ocean" .  They arrived in October 1854 and then travelled on the "Duke of Wellington " to Belfast now known as Port Fairy in Victoria, Australia. There were no children with them when they arrived but were thought to have three children in England who presumably did not survive. They went on to have two sons, Richard and Edward John and a daughter Adosia (Edosia)

Re Matilda's mother's maiden name. I think it possible that Nokes is incorrect and her maiden name was Stokes. The writing on the original is not clear. I have not found a Theodosia Nokes but there was a Theodosia Stokes who married a John Elliott in 1812. That leaves many years before their first child (that I can find) was born in 1824. Perhaps there were stillbirths not recorded. Perhaps John and Theodosia were not together for some reason. Thomson-4079 18:34, 24 April 2017 (EDT)
