I am currently researching the name SPARKS/SPARKES for a
relative in New Zealand.
What we have is William SPARKS born c1822 Devon,
father Robert SPARKS of Axminster Devon.
We can ‘see’ William on the 1851 & 1861 census before he
emigrated to New Zealand
with his family in August 1864 arriving January 1865.
I would like to know if William had any brothers/sisters;
more about Robert and possibly his wife; find William or Robert on the 1841
census (If Robert was alive obviously); any baptism information etc.
If anyone is researching same or can help in any way I would
like to hear from you.
