That looks likely, Forfarian  :)

Hopefully his marriage cert and other material can help with this.

Hi Helen,  just came across this site by accident,  my name is Moya Shanks and I am married to William Shanks he was born in Edinburgh Scotland in 1943 his parents were George  Shanks and Margaret Shanks (nee Drummond ) they immigrated to New Zealand on the Larges Bay in 1947. When they arrived in N.Z. they stayed with Allan Cadenhead in Fairlie in N.Z.. Bill (my husband) believes he was possibly  Roallan Cadenhead and shortened it to Allan he was approx 60-70 in age at the time. Bill has the original Shaw Saville Line paperwork showing the cost of the fare from Scotland to N.Z.
Bill was born on 30 October 1943 and his Dad George was born in Linlithgow.
His 3rd cousins live in Perth  in Western Australia and Margaret Pittuck (nee Hand) has the full family history as her mother was Agnes (Nan) Hand (nee Shanks). Please feel free to contact me if I can help you with any thing else. Pm me at moyashanks@hotmail.com.  Regards Moya Shanks
