My partner is a Crook. So I did his line along time ago. If I remember correctly it was a John Crook who came out to the North Island from England as part a Govt scheme. I will dig out the papers tomorrow.

Was wondering if anyone would know where the records from The Bethany Hospice Christchurch would now be held since it has closed down?

thank you for your replies.
I have a Thos. Mullay arrived 1861 at Otago from liverpool on board the Lightning, aged 32, but that age doesnt fit with the age at death of the one died 1924.  I cannot find him on any other passenger lists, apart from on Papers past going from Bluff to Stewart Island regularly.
1894 he was a candidate for the Licensing Committee, Awarua as a clerk (papers past)
1902 He applied for a patent - NSW Letters Patent (coating for timber to protect from pests)
1904 Bankruptcy.....of Berwick, Contractor (Archway)
1924 death....occup. engineer

On the 1904 one there is also an Annis Scott Mullay named with him. Who is this?
Im confused
1902 He applied for the patent with a man named William Sievwright who I have discovered was a lawyer from Gisborne.

So my question is, are these records all related to the same Thomas Mullay?

Can anyone give me any clues as to how I would find out if there was 2 Thomas Scott Mullay's residing in the Southland area in 1904? or even in 1902? Thank you in advance.

Durham Lookup Requests / Re: 1891 census - Tones *COMPLETED*

Thank you both, ladies. The William HR Tones was the one I was after. I now have who his parents were atlast lol. Thank for the colliery link too. I had read that there were a lot of mines in the area. Maybe that is why William came to the Westcoast of the South Island of NZ, looking for work in the mines. Your help has been much appreciated :-)
