Title: Lilley family in Canterbury
Post by: Kurow 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.

1877/2032           Lilley    Zorah Elizabeth    Leah   Joseph



I think Zorah should read as Sarah ....this will be a transcription error.

Hello Kurow........

If you send for a birth printout for one of the children you may be lucky in obtaining a birth-place for the parents.

Here is a list of the data collected:
