Elvy Family
« on: Tuesday 26 November 13 04:29 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

Looking for information on the Elvy Family. Have tried looking in all the usual places but due to not being able to spend money at the moment, haven't been able to get too far. I might have to try one of those lookup request things to find more information.

Harold Nelson Elvy
born in 1849 in Sydney NSW
married Jane Susan Merrick in 1890 in Sydney NSW
died in New Zealand 25/5/1927
buried Sydenham Cemetery Christchurch NZ 26/5/1927

Here is where it gets difficult as I'm going of penciled in notes from my mother.

Robert Hammond Elvy
born in 1899 in Sydney NSW 
married Eliza Louisa
died

Filmer William Elvy
born
married
died

I actually have no idea if Robert and Filmer are related to each other and to Harold. Thought I read somewhere that Filmer served in World War One but can't find anything. All the dates I have may or may not be correct, just writing what I've got.

Thanks


Borlands from Scotland, Hiltons from England & Platts from England at this stage. Have others to look for as well at some stage :)
