New Zealand Completed Requests / SHEPHERD FAMILY FROM ENGLAND
« on: Tuesday 29 September 20 11:11 BST (UK)  »
During the latter part of 1908, Arthur Shepherd, his wife Emma, formerly called Varley, and their daughter Ruth Annie, sailed on the Cornwall arriving in Auckland on 9th January. They started a new life in Arero, Bay of Plenty.
I believe Ruth Annie married Harold Membrey Thomas during 1927, but am not certain of this. Harold was another Englishman who had emigrated to New Zealand. I have been told they had a daughter (*) , but I have no details for her. She most likely was born in Arero as Arthur and Emma were still there in 1928.
I am hoping somebody can fill in the details of her (*) daughter's life so I can complete the family history.
Thank you

Following the suggestion Of John Varley of 1893, I looked carefully at the records and determined he was a very good possibility. So I purchased his birth certificate  and he is the one I was looking for. He was born on Christmas day, so lived less than a week. The youngest of the previous 9, Agnes lived to be 105, so you can never tell how long a life can be.

Igor Strav,
               John is a possibility, but is the mother " Shaw " on the birth record Ruth Shaw?

All 9 of the children were born in the district of Bradford, however, during the 1890's that part of Bradford changed its district to North Bierley, which lasted well into the next century

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Samuel and Ruth Varley Family History
« on: Friday 07 August 20 14:19 BST (UK)  »
Samuel Varley married Ruth Shaw in 1873, and lived their married life in Wilsden. According to the family Bible, between 1873 and 1890, there were 9 children, of which only Reuben had died by the time of 1911 Census. However the original of 1911 census for those still living at home in West View Cottage, Wilsden and signed by Ruth, shows total number of children born as 10, 8 still living and 2 who have died.
Can anybody say for certain if there was a 10th and who this might be
Thank you
