Thanks Lucy2. Yes I've lodged a research request with the Archives.  Just hoping maybe someone has access somehow some other way.
Regards
Nicola :)

And I can't find any marriages, death notices either... for Letitia. Complete dead end.

Just throwing this in, in case it helps....I was researching a person who was admitted to St Mary's Orphanage (Stoke, NELSON), and their records were at the Alexander Turnball Library NOT Archives NZ.  As this register included living people I had to have them access it, and they made a copy of the relevant entry to show me.

Yes ... like Twiggy Tree ... I have also just come across the death of Letitia.   :(

Hadn't bothered checking the death index earlier because you had seemed to indicate that Letitia was a relative and that somehow suggested you had details of her beyond 1899.    ???

Nicola ... this also >

NZ Death

1918 / 8586 - WHITTINGHAM - Henry George John Edward  - 26 years

 :(

By my reckoning, this now accounts for all of the children born to the union of Mary COMMONS and John WHITTINGHAM .    ???

PS:   Still searching for the resting place of young Henry - will post here when found.
