He was the son of Moses Ratcliff and Maria Barber
We found the following Settlement Certificate at the Nottinghamshire Archives and wondered if this was our Moses.

[From] Borough of Chesterfield in the County of Derby
MOSES RATCLIFFE, MARY HIS WIFE AND SARAH, MARY, MOSES, ELIZABETH AND ALICE THEIR CHILDREN

We THOMAS DUTTON AND JOHN BALE ESQUIRES, Justices of the peace acting in and for the said Borough of Chesterfield, abovementioned do allow the above written Certificate.

and the parents are given as Moses and Ann (IGI Extracted) but his wife on the Settlement is Mary
(IGI submitted has them baptized at Tapton, Chesterfield also of Moses and Ann)
Mary Ratcliff 1775
Moses Ratcliff 1777
Elizabeth Ratcliff 1779
Alice Ratcliff 1781
So, we assumed that maybe Ann died and Moses married Mary.
And a Moses married Ann Farrance (or Frances) 29 May 1794 at Mansfield
At Radford St. Peter 19 Nov 1797 Moses Ratcliff = Grace Bennel (or Bennet)
