I am new to Rootschat having stumbled across this site today, I am a decendent of a James Henry Tourell and what I have is he was born 05/07/1854 in Middlesex England. He migrated to NZ at the age of one, his wife Mary Doyle was from Ireland.
He died in Dunedin NZ on 05/01/1926.
 I have an interest in knowing a bit more as I will be in France next week and will be travelling thru Nimes,this city popped up on a google search for the Tourelle name. The family has known of a Huguenot  connection but not much eles. Of interest is that my grandfather fought in France in 1917-1919. He was in the NZ Expeditionary Force and survived the war.
I know this is an old thread but I hope someone may have some additional info.
Cheers
Juan

Hi Juan,
I am interested in the Tourell family in NZ because of Mary Doyle. I have information about this Doyle family.

I am researching the Tourell family in NZ and have living descendants from Nimes here in NZ
They came to NZ in 1855.
Happy to discuss with anyone interested.
