Saunders/Moore. Emigrated from Ireland to New Zealand about 1900.
« on: Wednesday 07 May 14 20:48 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for descendants of Clara Moore and her husband X Saunders. Clara was born in Rathfriland, Co Down ,Ireland, in 1884. Either before or after her marriage to X Saunders, she emigrated to New Zealand. Anyone any ideas?  :)
Moore - Co Down
Wilson - Co Tyrone
Richards - Staffs
Waldron - Devon
Hodge - Wiltshire

Is the X because you don't know his name? How do you know that they married?

She travelled on the Corinthic from Southampton and was a waitress. She was with a Florence Saunders, 39, and their last address was 22, New Hall Street, West Bromwich. It says last permanent residence was other parts of the British Empire. Place of intended residence NZ.

Hi all,
Thanks for such a quick response.
I'll try to answer all the questions as best I can.
Clara was one of 15 children born to Edward & Mary Moore, in Rathfriland, Co Down, Ireland.
She was born in Aug 1884 - from parish register of the baptism in the Roman Catholic Church.
I was aware of the census info for 1901/1911. I was told by a cousin - now deceased, that Clara emigrated to New Zealand. We believe her married name was Saunders/Sanders, but we don't know where or when she married. Certainly not when she migrated.
That's all we have to go on. Not a lot, I'm afraid, but I hoped that possibly an descendant might recognise the names.  :)
Moore - Co Down
Wilson - Co Tyrone
Richards - Staffs
Waldron - Devon
Hodge - Wiltshire
