The 1861 census shows Hepzibah living with her mother Margaret wife of a
mariner who is not on the census. There were other children listed mostly
born in East Donyland, Essex

The 1851 shows Margaret as a fisherman's wife; again the husband is not on
the census but the eldest son is called James so could be named after his

On freebmd there is a birth of Hephzibah Enar CLARK (no 'e' at the end) born
in Lexden registration district, which includes East Donyland.

Your best option is to send for this birth certificate as it will show both
parents names including the mother's maiden name.

Full reference is:

CLARK Hephzibah Enar; Qtr- June 1858; Registration district - Lexden; Vol -
4a; Page - 241

Two other children on the census are also on freebmd, again as CLARK
William Benjamin CLARK
James Prior CLARK

There is a marriage of a James CLARK to Margaret PRYOR on freebmd so that
would appear to be the correct marriage in Lexden in 1842. May be worth
sending for this too.
