Hi lancaster103

Mmm ... it's proving a little difficult to locate relatives of this man.  His only sibling (a sister, Patricia Barbara CRONIN, died unmarried and presumably without issue ?).

Now looking to track down his mother's GARLAND family.   Quite a number of online "trees" (at ancestry website) include Maxwell CRONIN's grandfather, George Joseph GARLAND, a New Zealand parliamentarian;  however the information contained doesn't link to any of his children ???  (Seems these "trees" are more of a "name gathering" exercise than anything else.  ;D )

The "manager" of the following, may have further information to share on the family ???

The following may be helpful in locating relatives ? 
(At a glance can see that the Will gives names of "nieces" ).

Probate file for Anthony Oliver GARLAND (the brother of Mary Florence CRONIN and uncle of Maxwell Joseph CRONIN).

Probate record (with annexed Will) for Agnes Blanche COOKE.  (Agnes was the sister of Mary Florence CRONIN, and aunt of Maxwell CRONIN).

It names her children (two of whom appear to be the "nieces" named in the Will of Anthony Oliver GARLAND - see my earlier post.)

Another Probate file - this is for Marjory Scouller GARLAND, spinster of Auckland - died 1950.
[Her name is spelled as "Marjorie" / "Margery" in various records - with Marjory being correct as attested by her brother. ]

Marjory's Will was written in 1939 and "her nephew, Maxwell Joseph CRONIN" was named as a beneficiary of her residual estate.
