Hephzibah Murch was born 9 January 1840 in Ottery St Mary, Devon, England to Samuel Murch and Johanna Yeates. In the 1851 census, she is living with her parents and siblings in Yonder Street, Ottery St Mary, only five doors down from the Independent chapel, and is a lacemaker at the young age of 11. She is still there in 1861, but is now a silk weaver.

Hephzibah, still a silk weaver, married Charles Walter Bovett from Wellington in Somerset on 6 June 1862 in Ottery St Mary, and all eleven of her children were also born in Ottery St Mary. The children didn't all stay in Ottery St Mary, however; Charlotte went to Wales, and Lucy went to Massachusetts!

If you are wondering where the name comes from: 'Hephzibah' is from the Bible. She was the wife of Hezekiah, King of Judah, and was the mother of Manasseh.
