Hello Cr

Don't know whether you saw the listings (passengers into New Zealand) at >

https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1609792

> Search on "Lorna HUMPHREYS"  (... and there's also a 1947 entry for L.E. HUMPHREYS)

Gives an idea of her travel over the years ... (no accompanying "children" that I can see ?? - at least not on the lists that I viewed. )

From another source ....
In 1940, Lorna HUMPHREYS (33 yrs) - no occupation, departed Southampton 26 April  per "Strathmore", bound for Australia (via Singapore) - contracted to land at Sydney.  Last UK address ;  29 Ordnance Hill, NW.
Place of intended permanent residence :  NZ

Seems she probably followed her Naval officer husband on his voyages to different parts of the world ?

Thank you very much minniehaha and Lucy2, those snippets are very helpful and I can use the Win snipping tool to save them to my tree too.
Can you find anything out about Thomas's wife, Daphne, please?

NZ Marriage for parents of Daphne Ellen VERCOE :

Edward Rawling VERCOE -- Ellen May JENNINGS -- Year:  1910
------------

Archives NZ (at Christchurch) hold a Probate file for Edward Rawling VERCOE, Retired Printer, (1954) but it gives no useful family information (i.e.  no names of children, grandchildren).
Ellen May VERCOE died in 1952 aged 64.
