I note mention of William the brewer. I am trying to trace the background of Palmer Bass, also a brewer and publican. He was in Otago, New Zealand from about 1864 or earlier and died in NZ in 1886. Any help would be much appreciated.

I am trying to trace the origins of my father's middle name leClerc. He is Ian leClerc Harvey b. 1929 in Dunedin, New Zealand. His uncle William also bore this as a middle name, but nobody in the family knows of its origins. Some historical surnames going back include Bass and Young, and possibly Pacey, MacCarthy and Faisandier. We have known links on the Harvey side to the Stirling Harveys - William the clock maker and Sir George the painter and to the Blackadders - but can find no connection there to leClerc. Any assistance would be hugely appreciated.

Hello Anne
I am also interested in Pacey family of Waikaka/Chatton. I realise that this comes some time after your original posts but if you could confirm receipt of this message I will then post more specific information. (Not sure if I am using this site correctly - I am a newcomer to Rootschat)

Hello Waikaka Lass. Do you have the names of William Jr's 6 children? Thanks, Simon

I am wondering if Waikaka Lass got to read my earlier post, or if anyone else has any other information about the NZ family?

Hello Waikakalass
Like your opening statement, I realise too that this is an old thread. However having just been visiting family roots in Stirling (we live in Auckland) our interest has been renewed in research done some time ago by my father. My grandfather and your grandmother will have been siblings. He was John Harvey - the eldest or second eldest I think of the 5 or 6 children (complicated, as you say) of Alice Bass - and my father Ian is the youngest child of John. My father is still alive and living in Auckland, having grown up in the North East Valley of Dunedin. I would love to share and explore the family background further with you. To do so on this forum, we need to each have posted 3 times before we can use the Private Massage facility and exchange email addresses. Simply confirming that you have received this from me will be one more for you, as I understand it.

I so deeply hope that this does come to you and that you see fit to respond.

Simon George Harvey
