Not sure if this has been covered but I suggest you obtain a printout for the birth registration of at least one of the children born to George & Helen. Birthplace of the parents is one of the questions asked.

Hello Everyone, thank you for your help.  I will order a copy of the birth certificate of one of his children and see what it says. 

I have been unable to attach a copy of the marriage certificate due to size issues, but I have the details below:

Marriage - 13th February 1901
At the home of Mr John Dixon in Hamilton East

George was 25, a Farm labourer, Bachelor from Birmingham, England.  His usual and present residence was Hautapu NZ.  His parents were George Robertson (Labourer) and Elizabeth Robertson nee Rose.

He married Helen Dixon age 21, spinster from Hamilton.  Her parents were John Dixon (Settler) and Clara Dixon nee Bradley.

The witnesses were Sarah Morris and Ernest Morris (Carpenter).

Am still seeking info on any siblings and how and when he arrived in NZ and any info on his parents.

Thanks.

a printout is the preferred option it is a copy of the register entry where as a certificate is a legal document and is transcibed from the register
