Jonathon is in the Ancestry.com Census index as Sohner Han Weacock. Actually the entry is Johnerthan Peacock. The 'than' having been added as an afterthought.
In 1842, Jonathon appears in the records of Hatfield Broad Oak, Essex. Apparently, he is claiming that he has a right of settlement there although he was born in Matching.
This claim gives Jonathon's life history, where he was working, how much he was paid etc. It also suggests that he was unemployed for long periods of time and was receiving poor relief. Hence the desire for the parish of Hatfield Broad Oak to move him on and save their rate payers the expense.
The result of the above settlement claim is unknown.
