Hi there,

I just read my reply again, I am not sure why I said Joseph went to Australia - that is a mistake. Joseph stayed on the farm at Chaney's Corner north of Christchurch. My info suggests that his brother William Francis and Emma (nee Ford) Chaney seemed to have emigrated to Australia around 1882, when their son Joseph was married there (perhaps that's where I got mixed up). William's brother John Albert went to Wellington and owned the 'Cricketer's Arms' in Tory St for a while. Lots of Chaneys in Wellington. I am descended from a younger brother Randolph who was born on the ship the Randolph on the way to NZ in 1850. Cheers, S

Hi,
I too am a descendant of WGC. His daughter Elizabeth is my great, great grandmother.
Love this forum!

Sarah

Great to see there are more family out there.

Are you from the Albert Ernest Victor CHANEY/Grace VIGERS branch?  I have very little about Elizabeth, although do have her two marriages and the one child.

Michael Raymond CONNOR, married 05 Nov 1863
Harry SMITH, married 17 October 1914.

I am not directly connected, Wilhelmina CHANEY married my uncle, Andrew SIMPSON in 1873.

Hey Jeni,
I'm not sure where the Albert/Grace ancestry lines up, sorry. I've only just started looking back.
The child you've found for Elizabeth from her marriage to Henry J Smith (Harry) is my great grandfather, via his son Devon Cecil (nickname Bull) Smith. DC Smith's eldest daughter, Cheryl Jane, is my Mum. (she is descended from the Bromby/Brumby family at Mataura through her Mum)

Such a small world we live in!!
Cheers
Sarah

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had any stories about the Chaneyís? Iím a descendent of William George > William Francis. I donít really have contact with this side of the family unfortunately. I know Chaneyís corner was lost in a card game but thatís about it! Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

Wiliam George Chaney was my 3x great grandfather. He went farming at Chaney's Corner after the money ran out to build the cathedral. WCG had come out from Kent to build it. The farm was then taken over by his son Joseph who died in 1929. The old house is still there. Another son, Randolph, named after the ship on which they came out, was my great- grandfather. He worked in the freezing works in Islington near Christchurch. Stuart Vogel
