Hello again, :)

New Zealand Completed Requests / Help required CAREY/MATTHEWS Christchurch
« on: Saturday 18 June 05 09:51 BST (UK)  »
Hi  :)

My Carey and Matthews ancestors emigrated to New Zealand from London. I have information about them in England prior to this from certs and censuses and info from the Australian connection, but would like to find more about their lives in New Zealand. This is what I have to date:-

Thomas Carey age c47, shoemaker and Emily wife age c45 arrived Lyttleton aboard the ship the Lancashire Witch in 1863 with children Emily age 16, Sarah Jane 14, Charles 11, Mary Ann 8 and George Thomas 3. (from Passenger list for Lancashire Witch)

They owned a shoeshop in Hanmer Street, Avonside, Christchurch. (unconfirmed)

Emily Snr died 13 February 1888 at 189 Gloucester Street West, Christchurch and was buried at the New Cemetery (Public) - from death cert

Thomas died 23 September 1898 at Hanmer Street, Christchurch and was buried at Linwood - from death cert
I also have unconfirmed info that they were buried at St. Luke's the Evangelist Church in Ea Lingard.

Sarah Jane left NZ and married William Matthews (who also originated from London and lived in NZ ) in Sydney Australia in 1867, settled in Bowral NSW, and had 8 children.
Charles married Mary Jane Moore in 1882 and also settled in Bowral and raised a family.
I have no information at all for Emily jnr or Mary Ann,
George Carey owned a shoeshop in Church Street Kaiapoi in 1901. He was a member of the Christchurch Engineers and attached to the Trafalgar Lodge of Druids in Kaiapoi. He married in 1884 to the daughter of the late Mr. W Martin of Christchurch and they had 3 daughters. (all this is unconfirmed)

I don't know when William Matthews went to NZ - I have his occupation in 1858 as a Ships Steward - he isn't with his family in England on 1861 census. In 1867 his occupation is Trader on his marriage certificate in Sydney. I don't have any information about him at all in NZ. It is stated on his death cert from Australia that he spent 10 years in NZ prior to his marriage in 1867,but I don't know how accurate this info is.

I would like to know when Sarah Jane and William Matthews went to Australia  (also Charles) and the name of the ship.
How would I go about finding information about Emily jnr or Mary Ann or confirming info about George, Emily and Thomas?

Actually anything at all about any of this family would be wonderful  -  I haven't been to New Zealand  - yet.

I hope this isn't too much information for one post.

margaret   :)

I'm not there yet -

but  I do have all 16  gg grandparents, 10 ggg grandparents (paternal) and 2 gggg grandparents.
