Today is the anniversary of Napier Earthquake... sadly two names from Carterton died in it.. Haxton.
(maybe more from this area, but only know of this family, as in contact with them all the time, even today two emails from descendants of this early settlers family) One of the Haxton family members lives up in Napier today.. and many other descendants..of Bond etc...
Many Haxton's buried here at Clareville, one is waiting for a new headboard to be placed on a grave, yes headboard, its wooden, been made especially for Wishart Haxton. to replace his very ancient one, round shape.1902 era..buried next to his grandmother, he was only about a year old when he died.. Haxton family lived in Richmond Road. Carterton. I have the family tree..
75th Anniversary. 10.47am... it started.....
Thanks to everyone who has helped me thus far. I want to try and find out what ships the family came on,as they seem to have come at different times -but from about the mid 1850s onwards.
Any routes I could try would be most helpful.
The family name of GOOCH,seems to pass through several generations-so there are several generations of George Gooch Death -the one who married in 1886 is I think a great-nephew of George Gooch Death who married Mary Ann Sturgeon.
I need to put in all the new information I have -but after that there will be more questions!
Thanks to everyone

I am new to this list and asking for help in finding the following family who arrived in NSW from NZ (Wellington) about 1919.
CLARA AMELIA McCUTCHEON b. 1888 Wellington
CLARE RUBY McCUTCHEON b 1910 NZ
REGINALD GEORGE HARRY McCUTCHEON b 1912 NZ
Clara (nee Smith) married WILLIAM STEWART McCUTCHEON in Wellington 1910 and was born in Ireland 1888.
Clara took the 2 children to NSW by ship about 1919 and placed Reginald in Foster Care, her daughter Clare Ruby stayed with her all her life and never married.
I am looking for the ship they arrived on and the date, also any info from NZ on this family.
Can anyone suggest where I could look on the net for shipping records of this era 1950 - 1920, I am familiar with most Passenger List sites for Australia.
Prior to departing for New Zealand, William Wiseman, eldest son of Solomon
Wiseman married Captain John GRONO's seventh daughter Matilda on the 22nd
June, 1829, it being the first wedding ceremony known to have been
celebrated in the historic Ebenezer Church. They had issue of one daughter,
Jane Matilda, prior to the 28th February, 1831, on which date, "THE
INDUSTRY" was wrecked in a terrific sorm in East Harbour, New Zealand, when
Captain William WISEMAN and 10 members of his crew were drowned.
I understand there are a few places named after Captain John Grono in New
My grand-father was called Dick, where was this photo taken? Where can I
view it? Th elink in your email took me to a Roll of Honour website, but

HELP I have paid for a will from Scotlands people but just can not view it. Everything seems to be up to date re Java and Windows 2000 but we just sit there for almost an hour and it stays tight with 2 items left to view !!!

I'm hoping someone living in or close to Greymouth will do me a very big favour
(or exchange a favour - see below) and take some photographs of a couple of
Ancestor cousin Charles SEABROOK in partnership with William ARNOTT were
builders in Greymouth in the 1870s-1890s and according to an account in
Industries of New Zealand (1898), built "the Greymouth Hospital, the State
School, the Roman Catholic Church, Dawson's Hotel (at Reefton) and the Post and
Telegraph Offices at Westport, Lyell and Kumara."
I appreciate some (maybe all) of these structures may no longer be there, but if
they are, I would be very grateful of some images.
I would naturally like to re-imburse any expense involve and/or do research and
look-ups here in Hobart in return (or assist where I can in Oz research).
Since we got our new hard drive I have only been getting 2-3 emails from
the list a day. I'm sure there is a ton more emails come in for the list
since last Wednesday.
Or has everyone lost interest suddenly.
I've just joined the list, I live in Brisbane, Queensland, and I'm
hoping to help a friend find relatives/records for this family:-
> Flora Anna VINCENT - International Genealogical Index
>Gender: Female Birth: 26 APR 1848 Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand
>** Agnes Anne VINCENT - International Genealogical Index
>Gender: Female Birth: 21 NOV 1844 Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand
> Henry Cleave VINCENT- International Genealogical Index
>Gender: Male Birth: 24 SEP 1846 Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand
>parents were William Edward VINCENT and Anne Sophia.(nee Squibb) (???where
>and when born) Married 1st. July, 1844, Wellington.
Agnes came to Australia, (between 1848 and 1866) and I think the other
siblings did, there are marriages for a Henry C and Flora A in the NSW BDM,
and it's possibly them. Agnes is my friends g/g.mother.
I'd like to find out how, when and why they went to N.Z, and from
where.? And the same for the journey to Aus, when, and the name of the ship.
I've searched quite a few shipping lists, and hope someone can give me a
link to some good ones for NZ please ? And also any links for looking up
records such as BDM. Perhaps there are more chilfren who aren't on the IGI.
(These records are submitted by a member of the LDS Church ) Are the BDM's
online for NZ?
Thank you for any help you can give, or cousins found.
Many thanks and
,-._|\ best wishes,

Hi Terry re Peter McMAHON, Farmer of the Tangowahine/Avoca area.
Just thought I should point out that a parent named on a wedding
certificate is not necessarily alive. A parent is still a parent,
dead or alive.
I have also heard it said that, if there is strife in the family, a
parent said to be deceased is not necessarily deceased.
Hope this helps

Has anyone heard of this firm or know anything about them, or know where I would be able to find information about them.
I think they would have been a Menswear supplier of some sort. An ancestor worked form them in Auckland in the 1860's as a Tailor and Cutter.
The only information I have found so far was a reference to David Graham and Co in the 'New Zealander' in Feb 1854, with reference to "City Building Bill".
I am in Australia and unable to find HENRY CECIL THOMPSON in New Zealand.
He is mentioned in a Will that of ETHEL MARY JONES (nee Petherick) dated 1946. She married JESSE BENSON JONES in 1900 and was living in WELLINGTON I believe.
In the 1902 Electoral Roll they were living near JOHN WILLIAM THOMPSON and wife EMMA AT 19 Wilson St., Wellington. J.W. & Emma was seemingly not related but called "MUM & DAD".
So it would seem this HENRY CECIL THOMPSON was alive when the Will was written, his wife MARIA is mentioned IF he has deceased.
Could anyone with Indexes or CDs please see if there is a person of this name who could relate to ETHEL MARY JONES in New Zealand as a "Foster Brother".
