Joseph Peacock was baptized in 1821 in St Mary the Virgin, Matching, Essex.222 The Baptism Register of St Mary the Virgin, Matching, Essex has the entry:

In the 1841 Census, he was a labourer living in Matching Green, Essex. His mother was living a few doors away.
Joseph Peacock and Mary Ann Whitbread were married in 1845 in St Mary the Virgin, Matching, Essex.222 The Marriage Register for St May the Virgin, Matching, Essex, has the entry:

minor, of Newmans End Matching on 7.9.1845. Both signed with X .
Following some misdeed, Joseph is in Chelmsford prison in the 1851 Census. His wife and one child are in the workhouse. This suggests that James might have been in prison for some time and his wife became destitute.
By 1861 Joseph and family are now living in Romford, but he does not seem to have an occupation.
Mary (Whitbread) Peacock dies in 1869 at the age of 39 years. The Civil Registration of Death reference is Sep 1869, v 4a, p 77. Aged 39 - in Romford, Essex.16
After this Joseph appears as a widower in the 1871 Census living with his son James
Living with him is Sarah Bush, a widow, and her family. Sarah appears with her husband in the 1861 Census so she would have been widowed between 1861 and 1871. She is classed as a servant, but in the 1881 Census she is classed as his wife. However, we can not find and reference to Joseph Peacock and Sarah Bush marrying.
Joseph Peacock and Mary Ann Whitbread had the following children:
