I have a wonderful book in my possession the "1891 Auckland Directory"
It covers the names ,profession and street address for all individuals
in the upper half of the North Island.(Hamilton-Gisborne upwards)
It also has a trade directory attached,school
boards,teachers,churches,ministers etc for Auckland and suburbs.
I am prepared to lookup any surname and post you the details.
Please note only adults listed.
One lookup / email would be great( easier for me to answer), but feel
free to send in as many requests as you want
Doubt it.. The NZ List hasn't been going long!! I have their
message dated 19 March 1999.. They'd have started a few
weeks before that.
> Hi listers, I hope you don't think I'm a pain in the you-know-what, but now
that I have found the archive list for NZ, can anyone tell me why I can only
view 1999's archive. If I rememeber rightly last time I used it I could
search 1998, 97 and 96 also.

I have an Alexander Homer MONK in my tree.
He married Ann Maria PREBBLE in Karori in 1848
She was a daughter of James PREBBLE from Prebbleton originally from
Mersham in England.)
Ann & Alexander were my gr gr grandparents.
I have no idea who Alexander's ancestors were.
This time I am asking about the family of Thomas and Mary Hughes from
Shropshire England who arrived around Invercargill abt 1875/80.
Names of families marrying into this family are HUMPHRIES/ HARRIS/ KINZETT/
TAYLOR/ WILLIAMSON/ WILCOX.
Hello once more,
This time it is the family of John and Emma WILCOX that I am looking for.
They arived in the Invercargill area abt 1875/80.
Names of families who married into the family are HUGHES/ KINGDON/ McLEAN
plus others I do not know as yet.
Any help would be appreciated.
Has anyone these names in their research.
Robert "Stobo" Wilson married Catherine Hanlon in 1877 in Southland.
I think they had abt 6 daughters, names unknown-and 1 son Robert William
Barber Wilson who married Barbara Monagan.
I am mainly interested in finding out about Catherine Hanlon.
I'm not sure if this discussion relates only to the laws in NZ. My
brother-in-law's sister & her first cousin were married no more than
15 years ago. They went to his country, Norway, to get married but
later found that there was no law in her country, Canada, which would
have prevented their marriage there. I believe I also checked in the
Anglican Book of Common Prayer & found that there was no prohibition
of first cousins marrying there either. We were quite surprised to
find that it was not as forbidden as we had always thought. Too bad my
brother didn't know that when he got a crush on our first cousin when
he visited NZ as a teenager! :-)

Dear New Zealand List,
Found the following passenger list and thought I would share. It lists
Government Immigrants leaving from Plymouth, Devon, England and arriving to
Glenelg, South Australia, April 16, 1866
The passenger list is separated into Nationalities, ie English, Scots and
Far too many surnames for me to list, so I have provided website for
individuals to check out.
Whakatane, New Zealand
P.S. I am also repeating above message on other GenealogyLists that I
Is there anyone out there who would be prepared to have a look for three
possible obits. in The Otago Daily times please. It's for a retired lady
who cannot afford the fees of a professional researcher. She would be
happy to do lookups here (Nelson) in exchange. She's looking for Ann
Mason d. 30/9/1872, George William Mason d. 26 Jan. 1887 Port Chambers.
Also Oliver Andrews, d. 30 Mar. 1942 Balclutha. Thanks Adrienne
Is there anyone out there willing to do electoral roll lookups.I am looking
for a Thomas Orr who married in 1889 in Auckland and lived at or in the
WATERLOO QUADRANT. He had lived there five years previously before his
marriage. His occupation was a Groom. At the time of his marriage he was 26
yrs old. How and where might I look to find out who he may have groomed for.
If I am not being to greedy. His wife Adelaide Mary Starling. The only
address I have for her is PARNELL. She had lived in Parnell for four years
previous to 1889. She was a deformed lady in that she had we think curvature
of the spine. We think she may have been sent out to NZ as "Bride material".
She was 30 years old at the time of the marriage. There is no profession
down on the intent to marry, It has been suggested that she may have been a
prostritute. If she can be found on electoral rolls it might tell me what
her profession was. After all she had to live on something.
Any help, advise etc will definitely be greatly appreciated.
Calling all descendants of Richard MONK and Margaret THOMSON of Conway Flat
and Kaikoura. We have got some more information on Richard's parents and
further back to the 1700's in England. Margaret is harder to trace but we
think we know where in Ireland she came from.We are trying to list all
descendants, can you help?
Jane Monk and Roger Kelly. in Scotland.
Good morning to all on the list.
Would be interested if anyone can direct me to a passenger list for the ship
MARAVAL which arrived in Wellington from London in January 1880? There is a
scrap of passenger list in National Archives and a note in an 1880 newspaper
but this does not include 250 steerage passengers.
Thanks. Any help is much appreciated.

No guarentees but probably the Otago goldfields in New Zealand. Quite a lot
went from the Creswick/Clunes/Learmonth area in 1863 -1864, including mine.
Leaving the little? women to fend for themselves. Mine came back.
