Thanks Lucy2,
I did work out the correct address & I have sent a query to "Ask a Librarian", this afternoon.
I enjoyed reading some Hutt & Petone books ( parts of them!) on this site. I thought, wrongly, there may be some mention of Robert Orr. The publication / item "Keeping it in the Family" sounds just what I need. I'm hoping the Librarian will tell me how I can get hold of this.
Previously, I've found Local Libraries an excellent source of information, thank you very much for pointing me in this direction.
With much appreciation,
Valsgirl (Brisbane, Australia)

Hi, I found the old post and was not sure if you had any luck with your search, I can help you out as my parents still live in the original home.

Regards
Orrbodies

I can remember my Dad telling stories about your Grandfather, my Dad (born 1924) is still alive and I am sure would be able to tell you more, as a new user I am as yet unable to reply to a personal message.
Any suggestions.

Regards
Orrbodies

Thank you CaledonCol, for your interest in my post.
Orrbodies, a direct Orr descendant, see above post, contacted me and I was able to discount a relationship between the Lower Hutt Orr family and the Co. Down Irish clan.

I did meet the lovely old Mr. Orr, when we visited Lower Hutt about 4 years ago, and he gave us a tour of his garden, informed us of historical facts about his property and reminisced about his employee, my Grandfather, William Bingham.
Good luck with your research,
Valsgirl
