:D :D :D That's brilliant! Thank so much Ian.  I didn't realise that the parish registers for this parish where online.  Arabella was certainly a long way off from home - she was born in Nantwich, Cheshire, and died in France in 1832ish.

I was just exploring the useful link provided by Ian and somehow got onto a Burke's volume called Colonial Gentry. There's a small reference to Robert Bayley Tyser's daughter Bessie (both of Wellington NZ) in there which might interest you:

or perhaps easier to reach here:

I am descended from the Robert Tyser MD who you're talking about, and his wife Maria Walter.  I did not know he had had a child with his 3rd wife Arabella Maria, why can I not find Robt Bayley on the censuses?  When did they go out to NZ?  So many loose ends, so little time...

I attach a picture of Dr Robt, for all your interest

Here is a pair of v small portraits of Robert's daughter Maria Sarah and her husband Col. John Thomas Smith. I only have photos of the portraits, don't know who has them.

Are we sure Bessie is any relation of Robert Bayley Tyser's?  or any other of our Tysers?

Looking again at the marriage cert of Robert Tyser and Arabella Maria Bayley, I have just noticed a strange coincidence, which is that one of the witnesses was a J Whiffin.  There's a will listed at Chester RO for a Mrs Catherine Wiffin (a widow) who died in 1825.  She is mentioned in the draft will of James Bayley 1759-1840 (Arabella's cousin) of Stapeley Hall as a tenant.  I wonder if the there is a connection?

Wiffin isn't a common name here in Cheshire and there is only one Wiffin (Catherine) buried at Wybunbury.
