Heath family emigrated from Staffordshire to New Zealand
« on: Sunday 29 October 17 20:58 GMT (UK) »
Hello, I'm researching the Heath family of Staffordshire. I'm aware of several members of the family who emigrated to New Zealand in the early 1900s particularly to Wellington, I'd love to 'talk' to anyone else interested in this family.

Hi ... welcome top RootsChat.    :)

Can you supply the christian names and approximate years of birth for the HEATH family, please ?
It will make the task of finding them much easier for us.

[The name of the youngest daughter of Jabez is mentioned in his will (see reply above) and it is likely that she is still alive.]


And she is somewhere on this HEATH family tree......

Hi mm326

My reason for asking in a previous post for the HEATH family christian names etc. was because there were at least two separate (and possibly unrelated ) families of this surname from Staffordshire who arrived in Wellington in the time frame you mentioned.   
And of course all persons who have say, researched HEATH families or placed family trees online, will not necessarily see your enquiry at RootsChat, immediately.  But adding additional information to your request may mean that with the resources many of us here, have, we can guide you in the right direction.   ;)
