Lilley family in Canterbury
« on: Thursday 18 January 18 07:24 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help with any information on either Joseph, died 1926, and Leah, died 1913 their daughter Frances Leah Lilley, died 1960 and her son Walter died 1985. I have been able to trace the family back through the Christchurch library cemetery data but cannot get back any further. I think Leah emigrated to New Zealand in about 1876. I think Joseph emigrated to New Zealand in about 1863.  Any help would be welcomed.
