Yes, good idea to stick with John Francis. Yes, I have all the information about Elizabeth FRANCIS and Henry PHILPS ... and after they arrived in NZ.

I have asked people why they've gone with the JF 1800 Staffordshire but there is no logical reason that anyone has given. I'm sticking with JF born in Kent unless anyone can prove otherwise since both his marriages were there.

I still like the Penshurst family, parents George FRANCIS and Jane Anscombe/Aynscomb as a good possibility. Timing fits the death certificate (or close) + distance is 14 miles from first marriage spot. What I need to prove is what happened to their son JOHN christened 11 Feb 1798.

The other three Kent births - 2 were dismissed because died or were married and died in the same area. The third was 50+ miles from marriage place.

Did George or Jane leave a will that mentions John? Did any of his siblings go to NZ as far as you know.

I haven't yet pushed on with the George/Jane Francis family.

I am much more familiar with looking things up in Sussex - they have a marvelous membership and access to wills ...

I can look today and see if any of the sons of George/Jane migrated ...
