ummm maybe i need to apologise as have just relooked at my records and the info i have is that John Harvey born 1860  birthplace looks like Dudley ? Piaford ? or similar as the writting on the cert is hard to read . The certificate is a marriage cert from 1888 of John Harvey and Letitia Coulter married in Wellington , New Zealand. Johns parents were James Harvey ( engineer ) and Elizabeth Miller. 
Anyone please help all this is making my head go round and round

Does anyone know what happened to William D Harvey born 1845 son of Charley and Margaret when researching this family.
My husbands great grandfather was William MacDuff born about 1845 Banff Scotland  and emigrated to New Zealand assumedly in 1860s so far noone has found his birth records.On our family tree William D Harvey comes up as a potential member. Any information would be a help
Thanks

All were born in Macduff, a town 2 miles east of Banff in Aberdeenshire.  Macduff is a fishing port situated on Gamrie Bay and was known as the parish of Gamrie.
Not strictly correct. The town of Macduff is indeed in the parish of Gamrie, but there are other places in the parish of Gamrie, including Gardenstown which I have heard referred to locally as Gamrie.

The parish kirk of Gamrie is about six miles from Macduff - see http://www.geograph.org.uk/gridref/NJ7962 - but there is also a kirk in Macduff itself - see http://www.geograph.org.uk/search.php?i=84886572 - which was built in 1805.
