Dear Stephen, Thankyou for your reply. I am a descendant of William Maple (Bc1856 Canterbury, Eng. to Aaron Maple(butcher) and Sarah Ann Bensted). William immigrated to Australia in 1877 and lived and died in Victoria. He had a half brother Thomas Henry Maple whose mother was recorded as Frances Ann Newton and Thomas was born in Hythe, Kent in 1867. He immigrated to South Australia in 1888. William Maple was my mother's grandfather and he married Bridget Kennedy in Brighton, Victoria in 1879.
I found an entry in Worldconnect for Aaron Maple, butcher who was born in 1831 Fordwich, Kent, U.K but he was married to a Susan and their William was born in 1870, so I dismissed this family.
