Hello
My Grandfather's Aunt is Violet Taylor. For some time I simply could not find her birth.

(As I have her death in 1933 in Australia and says her parents are Lily and John Stirling TAYLOR)

I thought she was born in Australia. Went to New Zealand BDM Online and found not only her's but her brothers and sisters.

John born 1891, Alex 1894, Violet 1896, Leslie 1898, Allan 1899 and Myrtle in 1903.

So went to Marriages Again jackpot. John Stirling Taylor married Lily Helleue.

Then I found this page.

As I said my grandfathers Uncle Walter Kelly married Violet Taylor in Australia in 1918. Sadly she died in 1933 very sure giving birth.

Also her brother Leslie died in Australia right here in Canberra, ACT in 1945.
And brother Allan died in 1978 also in Australia. (NSW)

That is where I am. Was trying to trace this TAYLOR family in Australia. No wonder wasn't getting anywhere.
They are from New Zealand.

Cheers
Rachel

Hello all,
I am a granddaughter of John Stirling Taylor. I first came across this site while looking for details on Lily Helleur (have come across various spellings) who was my grandmother. Allan Hood Taylor was my father. He was born 28/10/1899 in New Zealand and died 6/09/1978 in Taree NSW. He told us he was living in Mangaweka NZ before coming to Australia.
Rachel, I was particularly interested in your mention of Violet Taylor and Walter Kelly, I can remember Walter Kelly when I was a child, we used to call him Uncle Paddy.
I have been trying to find out if I have any other relations through my Auntie Violet.
I am of the understanding that Lily and John Stirling Taylor separated and she came to Australia with some of her children. It could have been about 1908 as my father told me he was 9 years old when he came to Australia.
It is possible that Lily went under the surname 'Wilson' for some time and my father told me she worked as a cook for the railways.
I am trying to obtain more information on John Stirling Taylor and Lily Helleur but that is for another time.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Nice to see all the connections to the Helleur line out there- my own direct connection is with Marthe Helleur b. 1720 in St. Brelade, Jersey who is my 5x gt grandmother and married Elie Romeril. Marthe was daughter of Matthieu b.1684 St. Brelade and his wife Marguerite De Gruchy b.1687 in St. Lawrence.
Apologies for being absent from the board for so long- I have a job and several other interests that take up most of my time in the summer!

Hi Bristol170. Esther Amy and Francois Helleur are my 4th Great Grandparents, so we descend from the same family. I have not had much luck in tracing the family of Marguerite de Gruchy, she is not listed on any of the de Gruchy pedigrees, infact I have wondered if she my have been a Gruchy instead of de Gruchy do you have any information on her?

Hi cousin Lisa!

 I'm afraid we're in the same boat regarding Marguerite, as I have only an approximate year of birth, a marriage date and a death date. I'm in Guernsey, so my family didn't move too far! I don't have any data on the Gruchy name in Jersey, save that there are some in the telephone directory!

We are tracing the descendants of John Stirling Taylor and Lily Helleur and would love to discuss the family further and have some photos that might include him. We have also visited his grave in Auckland.

We can be contacted via taylorfamilyhistorynz @ gmail.com

Hi there,

This is my first time using this site so apologies if not using correct etiquette.
My Dad has just come back from a visit to Akaroa where he traced our name, Helleur. We now know that we are descended from the same Frederick Helleur that you have written about. I loved reading your post about how the Monarch ended up in Akaroa as we were trying to work that out.
Would love to talk more and see how we are connected,
 :)
Helen
