Hi Karen,
I'm pretty confident these three baptisms relate to your Moorhouse line.

Hannah Moorhouse
Birth: 18 OCT 1804
Christening: 29 OCT 1804 Hornington Street Wesleyan, Burton Upon Trent, Stafford, England
Parents:
Father: WILLIAM MOORHOUSE
Mother: MARTHA

EMMA MOREHOUSE
Christening: 12 MAY 1807 Hornington Street Wesleyan, Burton Upon Trent, Stafford, England
Parents:
Father: WILLM. MOREHOUSE
Mother: MARTHA

JOHN MOREHOUSE
Christening: 03 SEP 1811 Hornington Street Wesleyan, Burton Upon Trent, Stafford, England
Parents:
Father: WILLIAM MOREHOUSE
Mother: MARTHA

It looks as if John may have died as a child before the family left for America.

The next step I have not proved yet but I think the marriage of William and Martha is this one at Repton, which is right on the Derbyshire/Yorkshire border

William Moorhouse m Martha Goodall 26th Feb 1803 at Repton Derbyshire.
For what it's worth, the use of the name Emma is a very early record as the name only came into vogue around 1800. There are no other suitable Emma's in the Moorhouse English records that have a sister Hannah born near these dates.
By viewing the marriage record in the original Repton parish register [film of] you may be fortunate enough to gain the name of William's home parish and be able to trace his parents. It will almost certainly be somewhere in Yorkshire. Great to find someone who recognizes that the variant spellings of the surname are just that and not separate families.
Cheers from Moorhouse family historian,
Mark Moorhouse.
