HALCRO/HALCROW families in New Zealand
« on: Wednesday 11 October 17 09:09 BST (UK) »
Hi there,
             I'm looking for a Halcrow/Halcro family in NZ who has an ancestor by the name of Erskine from Scotland. In particular a HENRY ERSKINE and his two sons EBENEZER & RALPH. Their mother was MARGARET HALCROW from the small Island of Wyre, Orkney and born about 1647.
It maybe of course that someone with a different surname has  an Erskine ancestor ?
There was a lady, with the surname Halcrow, living in Te Aroha years ago who was related but that's all I know.

Here's hoping,

Please someone tell me how to cancel the Halcrow post that I've just posted on the London board. I should have put it on the NZ board.
