John Gapes was probably born in 1801/02 according to the 1851/ 1861/1871 UK Censuses. If you are working on the 1841 the ages were only done in 5 year blocks for recording purposes and the choices would have been 35yo or 40yo.

I found a John Gapes christened in Stethall, Essex which is only 4kms form Wendens Ambro.

name: John Gapes
gender: Male
baptism/christening date: 15 Feb 1801
baptism/christening place: Streethall, Essex, England
father's name: Thomas Gapes
mother's name: Keziah Gapes

Do you know John Drake Gapes' wife's name?

Sorry.

Just realised wrong John Gapes. Looked through 3 more with that name from the same area of Essex but all died in England.

Do you have any other details about John Drake Gapes that may help such as wife's name, children's names & YOB or when he went to Australia?

Tonkin & Janilye are very good at finding Australian information.
