New Zealand / Re: Arthur Curwood b 23 Jul 1877 Marylebone, England
« on: Friday 07 September 18 20:08 BST (UK)  »
Hi Cr

Just to add further to info given by Mckha489 -- and so that you can eliminate the man who resided in New Zealand
    ... the Arthur CURWOOD who died in NZ in 1942 was born 1867 in Somerset, ENG. [s/o John and Fanny (Frances) CURWOOD]
[Information sources :  NZ  Probate record 1942 /  Baptism record / birth registration index / UK census returns. ]

Rhoda Mary Westlake emigrated to Australia in 1927, married John Holt Lyon farmer in Pitt Street Methodist Church, Auckland in 1932. They farmed at Inglewood Taranaki where Rhoda died in 1975.

I have no idea when her husband died and am interested in finding out if they had  any children who may still be alive.


Hi Alan

The Will of John Holt LYON > dated May 1955 > seems to confirm that he had only four children  > all of whom are named in that document and, according to birth registration records,  born of his union with Ann Jane (nee MILLS ).

Who is Sarah Julia Mary? she is about the time that Uncle Jim was born. 


Hi again

The child Sarah Julia JACKSON (not Sarah Julia Mary - Mary was the mother's name) born 1899 registered at Patea, sadly died as an infant.

NZ Death Index

1900 - JACKSON - Sarah Julia -- aged 11 months

Death Registered at Patea but haven't as yet been able to find a cemetery/burial record for her.

Thomas & Mary had 6 children that we know of ....

James married Edna - [name removed ] their son is very interested in "the tree" - I have yet to contact him with all the information you are discovering - BUT you do not mention James - and he certainly existed!


Hello Judith Mullin ... welcome to RootsChat.   :)

The following appears to be the birth registration for the "missing" James.

It appears on the NZ Birth index (online version) as >

1904 / 19457 - JACKSON - James Patrick
Mother:   Mary
Father:   Thomas


From another resource, I can tell you that this birth was registered (third quarter 1904) at Patea (Taranaki).

NZ Death Index

1969 - JACKSON - James Patrick - aged 64 years         [=  born circa 1905 ]
[Date of death (from cemetery record) 16 March 1969 ]

There is also a Probate record held for this man at Archives New Zealand (Wellington office) ... usually this would be accessible for viewing online, however the link to same (Wellington probates) @familysearch website, is not currently working.

James Patrick JACKSON is buried at Taihape Cemetery, the record for which states he was the husband of "Edna Mavis" ... and father of .... [names not recorded here in this thread to protect privacy of living persons].

NZ Marriage Index

James Patrick JACKSON - Edna Mavis de BERRY -- Year :  1931

New Zealand / Re: Roseanna (aka Rose Anna) GAIN arr Port Chalmers 1880
« on: Wednesday 18 July 18 10:43 BST (UK)  »
Hi

Probable arrival of Victoria GAIN into Canterbury per "Conflict" departed UK 4 November 1875, arrived 29 January 1876.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-X4XC-2Z?i=20&cc=1609792

GAIN - Victoria - 28 years - Governess - ex Co. Waterford

In the margin on passenger list, "Matron" is written alongside of Victoria's name (presumably she was the ship's Matron on that voyage ?) *

And ... at last ... a "native place" (Co. Waterford, Ireland) is given for this member of the GAIN family.  ;)

Edited to add -

 *   ??  Article gives the name of another woman who was apparently appointed "matron" . ??
