I too am connected into this family, there has been quite a lot of work done on the Dehon family. Amelia Heasman married firstly to a man named James Bradley, in 1871 in Melbourne then Mr Dehon in 1873 in Hokitika New Zealand and then Mr Riding in Sydney in 1897.

According to his death certificate - Peter Dehon died in Hokitika, New Zealand on the 18th September 1888 - he died from pneumonia and gangrene of the lung.

Hi Karen  :)

Thanks for your PM (I have left a message also on the DEHON thread).

Just in the process of sifting through all the papers connected with the various branches of this family, so will get back to you (via PM), shortly.

Aumarire,  Good luck with the Wellington NSW contact!

Lu, I'm trying hard to think of some scenarios to explain the 'bombshell' but ...

Thanks for the reference back to post #56 - I'd completely forgotten about James's 1919 marriage in Raffrey, Co Down (whence Lily's husband Francis COATES originated).  It's hard to remember all the twists and turns.
Whether one could get a copy of that Northern Ireland cert, and what info such a cert should contain, I have no idea.

At least you've finally found Ivy's bc - albeit it's pretty useless!  Do you have her mc and dc with parents' names?  Can't remember whether we've already discussed this.

Given that you've now found Ivy's bc, it restores hope that perhaps you will end up finding birth certs for some of the others - Thomas, Lily and James.

Re the 'bombshell', one thing I'm holding on to is that James's WW1 record referred to Thomas, his next of kin, as his Uncle.  Perhaps James knew that Lily was his mother but had no idea who his father was - but gave some names on the 1945 mc simply for the sake of appearances (to hide illegitimacy).  Only trouble with that is that Uncle Thomas was still alive (Uncle T died - do I recall correctly - in, I think, 1958).  But perhaps there was little chance that Elsie would meet Uncle T and have an opportunity to ask questions if James & Elsie stayed in Auckland (where they were married), and Uncle T in Christchurch.

Best of luck with the ongoing search for some more birth certificates ...

Hi all....this James Richings maybe my great grandfather. Mine born bout 1892 did live in Christchurch with wife Sarah Richings nee Thompson...married 1919 over in Ireland . Im a realitive of this marriage. Sarah died in 1944. James moved to Auckland. Sarah  and James had 2 children Vera and Thomas born in Christchurch. Thomas moved to Auckland aswell.
Be good to confirm if this is him and Elsie was his second wife.
My James Richings  died 1975
